Overview & Philosophy
Brais Brais & Rusak brings more than 80 years of combined trial experience to cases we handle on our clients' behalf. Twenty-eight (28) of those years are with attorneys who are Board Certified in the field of Admiralty and Maritime Law. Our experience includes state, federal and appellate courts. We have vast experience litigating with large corporations. Many maritime claims are unique and not only require impeccable legal credentials, but also real world experience. 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 every known type of off-shore oil drilling rig from 1981 to 1987. There is likely no attorney, not to mention board certified maritime attorney, with more real world experience than Keith Brais, and no one with a better understanding of the dangers associated with working in the marine offshore industry.Compassion:
From the moment Brais Brais & Rusak accepts your claim, you are not alone. We know the difficulties faced by ordinary people who find themselves in a position to have to sue a "big company" or "an employer." You or a loved one can no longer work and, depending upon the severity of the injuries, the means to support yourself and your family is gone with your lost career. On top of all this, you are in a weakened and vulnerable state because of the recent injury or death. Brais Brais & Rusak helps those who are bewildered and overwhelmed by personal tragedy. "Helping people regain their lives is not work but, rather, a challenge that brings with it great personal satisfaction."Skill:
It is difficult, if not impossible, to help others in the legal field unless you posses skill. Good intentions and even desire are not enough. The firm's achievements on behalf of its clients are substantial, span more than 20 years and are available on this website for you review. The most fundamental goal of the firm is to achieve results! In the case of personal injury or death, this means to position a client to resume the life enjoyed before a catastrophic event or, if this is not possible, to receive just compensation. Compensation will never sufficiently substitute for the life previously enjoyed, but a monetary award can help minimize the effects of a tragedy and place you on the road to emotional recovery.
