Overview & Philosophy

Miami Maritime Lawyer

Brais Law Firm brings more than 65 years of combined trial experience to bear on the cases we handle for our clients. Good intentions and desire are not enough to help others with their legal issues; ability is paramount. Brais Law Firm’s achievements on behalf of our clients are substantial, spanning more than 20 years. We often litigate in state and federal trial and appellate courts and enjoy facing large corporate defendants.

Many maritime injury claims are unique in nature and require impeccable legal credentials as well as real-world experience. Partner Keith Brais graduated from a Merchant Marine Academy with a Bachelor of Science degree in Marine Engineering, sailed as a merchant mariner, acquired three U.S. Coast Guard licenses, and worked on almost every known type of off-shore oil drilling rig from 1981 to 1987. He is likely unmatched in his depth and breadth of real-world experience, including his understanding of the variety of dangers associated with working in the offshore marine industry. Keith has also obtained board certification from the Florida Bar as an expert in the field of admiralty and maritime law.

Compassionate Representation

From the moment the maritime accident lawyers at Brais Law Firm accept your claim, you have a formidable ally. We know the difficulties faced by ordinary people who find themselves in a position to have to sue a "big company" or "an employer." When injuries are severe, the means to support yourself and your family evaporate along with your career. The issues you face are compounded because of your weakened, and vulnerable state. At Brais Law Firm we help those who are bewildered and overwhelmed by personal tragedy. We believe that helping people regain their lives is not work, but a challenge that brings with it great personal satisfaction.

Results-Oriented Approach

The fundamental goal of our firm is to achieve results. In the case of personal injury or death, this means to place a client in the position to resume the life he or she enjoyed before a catastrophic event. If this is not possible, then we will fight to ensure that you receive just compensation for your losses and damages. While compensation is not a sufficient substitute for the life previously experienced, a monetary award can help minimize the effects of a tragedy and place you on the road to emotional recovery.

The entire law firm of Brais Law were extremely helpful in handling my snorkeling accident. The firm takes customer service to a new level, not only being readily available, but courteous, respectful, sympathetic, and empathetic. The firm, especially Keith and Karla, were always quick to return calls, offer updates, and provide guidance and information. There is no comparison when it comes to firms. If you need legal advice or representation, especially concerning maritime events, contact Keith and his crew first and save yourself a lot of time and heartache! J.C.
