Why Choose Breit Cantor Grana Buckner?

Jeffrey Breit, head of our firm’s maritime practice group, is a national leader in maritime law. He was appointed to the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee for the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill disaster, one of the most complex maritime cases ever litigated. Supported by our entire team of skilled personal injury attorneys, Jeffrey has been able to secure millions of dollars on behalf of injured maritime workers and their families.

As with all our practice areas, we handle maritime cases on a contingency fee basis, which means we are entitled to collect a fee only if we are able to recover a verdict or settlement on your behalf. In the unlikely event that we do not secure compensation for you, you do not owe us anything.
