A Must Read for All DBA Overseas Contractors From Dallas



I Didn’t Sign Up For This

If you’re a seriously injured overseas civilian contractor, you may not be able to go back to work earning the kind of money you were before. You and your family are facing a tough future if that’s the case. You didn’t ask for this but these are the cards you were dealt with. So, what are your next steps?

Luckily, you’ve landed on the best DBA website out there. Here, the Turley and Mara Law Firm can walk you step by step on how to file your DBA claim with the Department of Labor, how to take your claim to court and what you are going to need to do to win your case once you get there. And we do it in plain English, minus the fluff, minus the B.S.


We Have A Worldwide Defense Base Act Practice

We are asked by injured DBA workers across the world to represent them, that includes Texas, and we do represent them. In fact, we represent so many of them that we are now one of the top two DBA law firms in the world.


Why Us Being Based In San Diego Is A Benefit To You

Our main office is located in San Diego, California.  And that is probably the best news you are going to here today. Why? The Defense Base Act falls under the Longshore and Harbor Workers Compensation Act and I have been handling Longshore Act cases since 1987. 

San Diego has the largest shipyard on the west coast with thousands of shipyard workers, so I was able to gain valuable experience with these types of cases long before the United States sent civilian workers to Iraq and Afghanistan.

San Diego is also 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. Because of my extensive Longshore Act experience, these contractors came to my office when they were sent home after being injured. Those folks needed their DBA benefits and so do you, I just want to help you get what you deserve.

It’s also why I offer my book, Win Your Defense Base Act Case, here for FREE.

So if you take nothing from this page at least take the free book that will put you on the right track to winning your Defense Base Act case.
