Admiralty is a highly-complex area of the law that involves both domestic maritime law as well international laws that govern the relationships between private entities that operate ocean-going vessels.
Over the years, Cunningham Bounds has obtained billions on behalf of our clients in verdicts and settlements. We are wholeheartedly dedicated to the success of our clients and work towards the best possible outcome in each and every case.

One of our lawyers is even a member of the Inner Circle of Advocates, a prestigious group made up of the top 100 plaintiff attorneys in the nation.
Handling a Wide Range of Cases
Admiralty law governs offshore activity and can be broken down into two parts. The first part is laws that were created as federal statutes. The second part is laws that were developed by major court decisions over time, also referred to as general maritime law.
The following all fall under admiralty law:
- Shipping and commerce
- Wharves and piers
- Maritime liens and insurance
Our firm can represent those injured on commercial fishing boats, offshore oil rigs, barges, ferries, cruise ships, tugboats, cargo ships, dive boats, and more!
Due to the complexity of admiralty cases, it is essential that those seeking counsel work with a highly specialized lawyer whose knowledge of both domestic and international laws runs deep. At Cunningham Bounds, we have a substantial and impressive background in this specialty.
