Miami Admiralty and Maritime Lawyer Provides Skillful Counsel


Maritime law, also known as admiralty law, is a complex body of law that incorporates state, federal and international law. Maritime claims require attorneys to have vast knowledge of these areas in order to properly protect their clients’ rights. At Meister Law in Miami, Attorney Meister has devoted her entire practice to maritime law cases. She has extensive experience representing cruise passengers, boaters, seafarers/crew members.  She routinely handles claims under the General Maritime Law of the United States, the Death on the High Seas Act, the Jones Act, the doctrine of Unseaworthiness, and Maintenance and Cure claims. In each of these areas, Meister Law is dedicated to maximizing the protections these laws bestow upon seafarers, passengers and boaters. Attorney Meister is also knowledgeable on the navigational Rules of the Road as well as boating regulations.  She has appeared on television to instruct viewers on boating safety. No matter what type of maritime law concern you have, Attorney Meister has the ability and experience to guide you effectively.


Meister Law represents a wide range of clients, including:

  • Boaters — Attorney Meister’s extensive experience in maritime law and as a boater results in excellent representation for those harmed in boating incidents.
  • Cruise ship passengers — Attorney Meister is strong advocate for injured passengers. She successfully takes on major cruise lines in cases involving injuries and death, including those involving sexual assaults/rape and bad medical care.
  • Seafarers/Crewmembers — As a former seafarer, Attorney Meister understands the unique challenges of working at sea.  Her lifelong passion is to protect and expand seafarers/crewmembers legal rights.  She represents injured seafarers as well as the family of deceased crewmembers.  When a crew member becomes sick or injured, she seeks all available benefits and compensation.
