"Everything you add to the truth subtracts from the truth."
My Best Advice
My best advice to you is for you to always tell the truth. Always. When bringing a court case, nothing is more important than your credibility. Nothing else is even close. The DBA insurance company lawyer is going to try and make you look like you are lying. If this happens, the Judge will rule against you and you will lose. Bank on it. I know I do. You should always be upfront and honest with your attorney and case. No matter what.
The problem is that in many instances folks get caught in traps left for them by the DBA insurance company. In other words, they don’t know that they are messing up their case. Happens all the time. Well meaning honest folks get caught in one of the DBA insurance company traps.
Which is why I strongly suggest that you read Win Your Defense Base Act Case. You can order it FREE here on this website or you can pay for it by ordering it from Amazon.com. It will go through everything you need to know to win your Defense Base Act case bullet by bullet.
A Local Lawyer vs. a Seasoned Defense Base Act Lawyer
You are cautioned not to hire a “local lawyer” just because they are physically close to where you live. You need a lawyer that can take on and beat the Defense Base Act insurance company lawyers. Know this, Chartis, CNA, ACE and the like hire lawyers that know DBA law inside and out. You should depend on it. We sure do.
Having the Right DBA Lawyer Can Make All the Difference
Having the right DBA lawyer will usually mean whether you win or lose your DBA case.. We stand up to the Defense Base Act insurance company that is trying to keep you from getting needed medical treatment and weekly compensation benefits.

Why Us Being Based In San Diego Is A Benefit To You
We are based in San Diego, California. This is a benefit to you. Few Defense Base Act lawyers have been handling DBA cases longer than us. The Defense Base Act falls under the Longshore and Harbor Workers Compensation Act. Bill Turley has been handling Longshore Act cases since 1987. Because San Diego has the largest shipyard on the west coast with thousands of shipyard workers, Bill gained valuable experience with these cases long before the United States sent civilian workers to Iraq and Afghanistan. That experience helps him win Defense Base Act cases.
San Diego is the biggest military town in the United States. The Defense Contracting Companies hired thousands of San Diego based ex-military types to work in Iraq and Afghanistan. We were there for them and their family’s after they were seriously injured. Thus, lt makes sense that The Turley & Mara Law Firm, APLC is America’s Leading Defense Base Act Law Firm.
Today, The Turley & Mara Law Firm, APLC represents seriously injured Defense Base Act workers and their family’s across the USA and around the world. We can help you and our family get the compensation you deserve.
Our offices are located in San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego. Our Defense Base Act practice is national in scope, and we are handling many cases around the country. Therefore, regardless of what state you’re from, we can help you get your life back.
