An Attorney with Brais Law Knows Cruise Ship Injury Cases Inside and Out

When it comes to being familiar with all aspects of cruise accident claims, it’s possible that no other firm can compare to the Brais Law Firm’s unique experience. Founding attorney, Keith Brais, has a degree in marine engineering and marine engineer licenses for multiple vessels. He became a lawyer after a nine-year career working on ships and offshore oil rigs was ended by an accident. 

Keith went on to become a board-certified expert in maritime law, defending cruise lines and other maritime companies against injury claims. He chose to start his own firm after about 20 years of success, however, when a particular case he won caused him to have a change of heart. Now he and his team solely represent individuals who have been injured in maritime accidents.
