The purpose of the present article is to construe to the seafarers what type of the legal expert is the marine lawyer and under what circumstances he should be hired. As well as to explain the difference between the marine lawyer and other types of lawyers.
There is a wrong stereotype that if either a seafarer or his family face any problems, they should obligatory hire merely marine lawyer. It’s completely wrong.
There are various problems. In the present article I want to dwell upon some of them, and also to explain what type of legal expert is needed in each particular case.
