"Life comes down to honesty and doing what's right." - Bob Feller
You Have a Choice
The Turley and Mara Law Firm is based in San Diego, California. My firm have been handling Longshore and Harbor Workers Compensation Act (Longshore Act) claims since 1987. This matters to you because The Defense Base Act (DBA) is an extension of the Longshore Act. It is the same law, same system and the same Judges.
From our lengthy experience we understand DBA cases and the DBA insurance companies. Being from San Diego, DBA cases are a natural for us. We have a large Special Forces contingent in San Diego that naturally gravitate to post military DBA careers. In addition, many linguists are from San Diego and Southern California.
So when you choose representation for your DBA case you always have a choice: A local attorney from South Carolina, who will learn the DBA with your case or a team of lawyers that have been handling cases before the Department of Labor since 1987.
Our Reputation is Success
Since 1987, the insurance companies have respected us for how we fight for our clients. This respect is a benefit clients receive when they choose The Turley & Mara Law Firm, APLC. The recognition the legal industry has given us helps us succeed for our clients.
You want a lawyer that is going to be able to stand up to the insurance company. You want a lawyer that is going to get the maximum medical and financial benefits for you and your family. You want a lawyer that will tell it to you straight, without the confusing legal jargon. You want the best of the best.
Don't take our word for it, take theirs:

Have You Chosen the Wrong Lawyer?
We are often contacted by those affected by serious injury or their loved ones to discuss the possibility of transferring their case to us from another law practice. Sadly, oftentimes folks like you fall for the trap of hiring a local lawyer. These lawyers rarely have the experience or skills needed to battle the DBA insurance company and their lawyers. They can get easily overwhelmed, fall into traps laid out by the DBA insurance company or simply stop anwering their clients calls and miss deadlines.
So yes, it might be tempting to hire a lawyer in Charleston, Columbia, Rock Hill, Greenville, or Sumter. But ask yourself this, is the security and well being of your and your family's future worth risking on someone who might not know what they're doing?
