Admiralty Law Specialty
Jones Act Attorney
Portland Maine Lawyer
Welcome to the Law office of Nicholas H. Walsh, P.A.
Maritime law and admiralty law specialist with a subspecialty in medical malpractice.
A former Coast Guard Officer, commercial fisherman and merchant mariner, since 1988 Nicholas H. Walsh has brought his practical knowledge to the legal table, providing service to the New England maritime community.
For commercial fisherman and merchant mariners, the firm offers plaintiff’s assistance in injury claims (including Jones Act and Unseaworthiness claims), fishery permit transfers and appeals, vessel sales and mortgages, salvage representation and all other areas of admiralty and maritime law. Injured cruise ship and ferry passengers benefit from the same level of practical knowledge and legal expertise.
Mr. Walsh practices before the federal and state courts of Maine, and has an active practice before the National Marine Fisheries Service and the Maine Department of Marine Resources. He is skilled at handling problematic Coast Guard vessel documentation issues. He recognizes that each client works within a budget, and takes pride in offering legal services for a fraction of that which a big firm would charge, with work of equal or better quality. Phone calls are returned the same day and pressing problems handled immediately.
