My Best Advice
Many times I have witnessed Jones Act Cases Be thrown out before it has even started. Why? Because the claimant was not honest or not truthful. And a lot of times, those people do not understand why their case was dismissed.
I have to be frank here. You have to be honest on everything about your case. You need to make sure that all the good and bad facts are brought to the table from the beginning. If you do not, then you will lose. Sometimes the truth hurts, but remember it is the truth that sets you free.
If you want to win your Jones Act Case, you need to make sure to take the proper steps. I have been handling Jones Act Cases since the 1980's. I have seen and learned a lot.
