List of Endorsements

Rivkind Margulies & Rivkind P.A., is a preeminent maritime and admiralty law firm with an international reputation for dedication and excellence. Brett Rivkind and Bruce Margulies combine nearly 60 years of practice to form a highly specialized firm that focuses exclusively on maritime law.

The firm aggressively represents passengers and crew members from around the world who have been injured or victimized on a cruise ship, yacht, boat or other watercraft.

The attorneys routinely are solicited for appearances on national television and news programs, often lecture on maritime law to judges and attorneys, and have testified before Congress on cruise ship safety. Other attorneys also seek Rivkind Margulies & Rivkind P.A.’ counsel on maritime injury cases and appeals because of the firm’s exceptional skills and expertise in this complex area of law.

This expertise has led to multiple successes on behalf of clients, in high-profile cases.

As a leader in the maritime field, the firm has established major contacts who assist in handling all types of maritime cases. Our attorneys utilize various maritime experts suited to the facts of each case. We consult with an ex-ship’s medical doctor who reviews cases to determine whether a ship’s physician may have committed medical negligence. We deal with Captains who review cases to determine the liability of the cruise ship company. We have contacts with ex-security officers of cruise ships who are available for consultation regarding breach of security issues in cases such as sexual assaults.

Our legal team is familiar with various manuals and procedures of cruise ship companies, including required safety management systems that cruise lines must put in place to protect passengers. Our attorneys and experts can easily determine whether regulations were violated.

Clients can expect to work directly with these experienced attorneys, not with associates and paralegals who have limited familiarity with their case or with maritime law. In addition to our lawyers, we have a completely bilingual staff who will be working on your case.

Based in Miami, the firm is ideally situated near one of the world’s greatest cruise line hubs. Further, cruise lines generally require any litigation against them be filed in Florida courts.
