Maritime attorney John K. Fulweiler, Esq. was asked to speak at the Rhode Island Harbormaster's Association meeting on issues regarding the law of maritime salvage and considerations when dealing with derelict and seemingly abandoned vessels. John was honored to accept the invitation and looks forward to the event which is scheduled to take place on March 29, 2013 at the Maritime Center located in Newport, Rhode Island. "I've practiced maritime law my entire career," John explains. "And I really enjoy these moments where I get a chance to talk about the unique qualities and issues arising in the maritime law."
Prior to opening his own maritime law office in Newport, Rhode Island, John was a partner in a Manhattan maritime law firm. John maintains admiralty law practices on the East and Gulf Coasts and in addition to his admiralty law firm's blog (www.saltwaterlaw.com), he writes a blog hosted by WorkBoat Magazine (www.workboat.com). He has also recently authored a small book about a man who fell overboard and treaded water for approximately eleven hours without a lifejacket. (A SWIM, available on Amazon.com).
Underway and making way.
