South Carolina Maritime/Admiralty Lawyer

Maritime law is very complex. From cargo loss to passenger injuries to vessel arrests, the laws that govern the maritime industry intersect with state, federal and international laws. This is why you need an experienced admiralty and maritime law firm to handle your maritime case.

Attorney David Popowski from Popowski Law Firm, LLC has the experience you need. We have fought for the rights of people and businesses involved in maritime claims for decades. Whether you need assistance properly filing a claim or seeking compensation in court, we can help. From our office in Charleston, we serve people in South Carolina and throughout the country.
