A Cruise Ship Injury Lawyer with Brais Law Knows Maritime Law Inside and Out

The Brais Law Firm was founded by Keith Brais who has over three decades of experience handling injury cases involving cruise lines and other maritime companies. Keith has a degree in marine engineering from the Massachusetts Maritime Academy and spent nearly 10 years working in that industry before experiencing a major accident on an offshore oil rig that ended his career. He shifted gears and went to law school, eventually becoming a sought-after board-certified expert in Admiralty and Maritime Law.

After about 20 years of successfully defending cruise lines, their insurers and other maritime companies from injury claims, one case struck home to him. Keith decided to start his own firm dedicated to helping people get just compensation for injuries caused by negligence occurring on cruise ships and the like.
