Here's three reasons to consider not hiring an admiralty attorney.
First, you might consider not hiring an admiralty attorney, if you're better than ninety percent sure that you can resolve a commercial dispute amicably and you have a long standing relationship with all parties involved.
Second, you might consider not hiring an admiralty attorney, if you're not going to listen. Sorry, the wheelhouse or the executive wing may be your domain, but your admiralty attorney is like a pilot and if you're not going to listen, well what's the point?
Third, you might consider not hiring an admiralty attorney, if your one of those captains that won't touch the throttles and wheel once past the breakwater. Head seas be damned, he'll sit up there and beat us to death. My point is that an admiralty attorney may counsel that you change course to take advantage of developing law, regulatory change, industry trends or what have you.
Underway and making way.
