Holzberg Legal is a Maritime and Personal Injury Law Firm in Miami, Florida. We are uniquely positioned to represent passengers and crewmembers against the major cruise lines as the majority are headquartered in Miami, Florida, including Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, Celebrity Cruises, Carnival Cruise Line, and Norwegian Cruise Line. Most Cruise Lines require that if you are injured, you must file suit in Federal Court in the Southern District of Florida, located in downtown Miami, Florida. For over 25 years, we have been representing people injured on cruises. In September 2018, I will celebrate my 35th anniversary as a lawyer.
Contact us directly by calling our office (305) 668-6410 or by email at Remember, you will speak directly to me. I will give you the time necessary to understand how your case will proceed. We take that responsibility seriously. We try our hardest to provide personal service to every client, in every case. Unlike the never-ending commercials and billboards for law firms that you see all over, you will speak to me, Glenn J Holzberg, and my capable and experienced paralegal, Erika. First and foremost, we are a family firm. The firm will be joined by the next generation of Holzberg lawyers, my son Louis, who will bring the same dedication and passion that I bring to my clients.

I will review and explain the procedural process of your case, when and why we file your lawsuit, the needs of your case with regards to our history in dealing with serious injury cases, what your involvement will be in your own case, and why it is important that you participate and stay involved in your case. I have always believed that your own personal commitment and the contribution that you bring to your case will produce the best possible outcome.

I look forward to working with you and your family. We are here to answer your questions and provide you with the best possible results.

Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered

Q. A Ca police officer sees a suspected murderer while both are on board a cruise ship bound from SD to Hawaii.
A: Not easily. thi8s is not a Maritme law issue and probably not one of criminal jurisdiction. What would the arresting officer do with the arrestee? Without at least the Ship's Captain and Chief Security Officer involved, the "arresting" officer could be liable for civil damages for false arrest, imprisonment, abuse of process, etc. The Ships Captain has the ultimate authority on the ship to decide whether to intervene, and from my experience in dealing with the cruise lines regularly for over 25 years I doubt they would intervene. The Federal Cruise Vessel Safety and Security Act may have some language that controls but it really involves crimes rpaes.etc on the ship, not suspected criminals who happen to be on the ship, and even that act has no teeth.
Q. Can my daughter's father hire a lawyer for an accident our minor daughter was in w/o my consent?
A: Yes, however the better question is do I have a right to claim damages suffered by your daughter. While you do also have rights, the ultimate issue will be who controls (supervises) the money until your daughter turns 18. If the case is not yet in suit, you can hire a lawyer to advise the responsible party/insurance company of the wrongdoer(tortfeasor), and make them aware of your interest in the outcome, and, moreover that you are the primary residential parent, who presumably has the majority of the expenses day to day interaction with your child. What if anything does your Fina judgement/Marital settlement Agreement say regarding this situation? I suspect it requires joint decision making, as its a matter of shared parental responsibility. id be wary of the ex spouse trying to grab the settlement funds for his personal use, as any settlement over $15,000 net to your daughter must be court approved. Let the lawyer who he hired know of your interest in seeing to a fair outcome, and that you expect the money to be court approved and supervised. if there is enough money involved id' hire a lawyer (who will work on a contingency basis) and if a relatively small amount contact the attorney on the case now and discuss your rights, then depending upon the answer proceed from there.
