Our attorneys have been handing aviation claims since 1994. We have been involved in aviation crashes of passenger jet aircraft, business jets, small aircraft and helicopters. Similarly, our attorneys have been involved in claims for almost every major US airline, civilian and military helicopter manufacturers, engine and component part manufacturers, maintenance and repair shops, and airports. Having investigated, analyzed, litigated and tried these cases for more than twenty years, we know the state, federal and international laws that apply in aviation matters.
Tom has widely written and spoken on aviation matters, including

- “The United States of Preemption: A Survey of Current Issues in Air Carrier Litigation.” Presented at a CLE seminar for Southwest Airlines on March 27, 2012.
