Injured Offshore Workers Come to Zehl & Associates to Win

In just the past several years alone, our trial lawyers have won Billions in Settlements and Verdicts for our clients, recovered the Largest Verdicts and Settlements in Texas, Louisiana and throughout the United States, and won record-setting victories against some of the largest companies in the world

As a result of this success, every one of our Maritime Lawyers belongs to the “Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum,” an organization limited to less than 1% of the lawyers in the country

Our Maritime Lawyers are Undefeated at Trial

Unlike many other law firms, every attorney at our firm is a trial lawyer who regularly goes to court and wins.  In fact, every one of our attorneys is not only undefeated at trial, but has recovered some of the largest verdicts and settlements in recent history.

Our experience in the courtroom, along with our history of winning, has enabled our Maritime Lawyers to consistently recover unprecedented recoveries for clients across Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and the rest of the United States.

We also take a different approach than many firms.  Rather than counting on a settlement, we prepare every case for trial and refuse to even discuss settlement until the defendant and their insurance company offer an amount that will fully compensate our client for ALL their injuries and damages.  If the settlement isn’t enough, we take the case to trial, where our lawyers remain undefeated.

While this approach has enabled us to obtain the best possible results for our clients, we realize that money is never a substitute for their health.  As a result, we have assembled a medical staff that works with every one of our clients, regardless of where they are located, to ensure that they’re receiving the best medical treatment available.  If they’re unsatisfied with the treatment they’re receiving or would prefer to see another doctor, our staff will help coordinate the appointments and do whatever possible to arrange for our clients to see the doctor of their choice.
