Welcome To
Blake Jones Law Firm LLC

Mississippi River inland waterway workers and offshore seamen know all too well the dangers associated with working on a vessel, fishing boat, tug boat, cruise ship, barge or floating base. The risk of serious injury — and even death — is astronomically greater than most other industries in America.
Fortunately, under U.S. maritime laws, captains, mates, engineers and crew members injured in any type of waterway accident have rights.
