Navigating Maritime Accidents in Houston: Importance of Expert Legal Support

The city of Houston is a location to be reckoned with when it comes to population and industry and Port Houston plays no small role in this largest city in Texas. Port Houston’s maritime industry includes the import and export of crucial products including petroleum products obtained from the area’s offshore oil rigs. Add to this the many popular personal and commercial water recreation activities and you can’t deny Houston’s presence as the fourth largest city in the U.S. So, when you need help protecting your rights after being injured in a maritime accident that was not your fault, make sure you have an attorney on your side that knows Houston and knows this area of the law inside and out.

The Brais Law Firm Has Unparalleled Experience in Maritime Legal Matters

Keith Brais, founding attorney for the Brais Law Firm, knows maritime law through and through. He initially started with a career in marine engineering after graduating from the Massachusetts Maritime Academy. He spent nearly a decade in that field and obtained multiple USCG marine engineer licenses. Everything changed, however, when an offshore oil rig accident left Keith unable to continue in that career. Not knowing his rights as an injured maritime worker, he studied maritime law which led him to the decision to go to law school. Now with over 30 years’ experience on both sides of an injury case and board-certification as an expert in admiralty and maritime law, Keith and his team work solely on behalf of protecting the rights of individuals who have been hurt in a maritime accident.
