Once that feedback is analyzed, the results are reviewed. An eligibility check ensures the recognized lawyers are in good standing and then Best Lawyers 2020 are announced online and in print by The Best Lawyers in America©.

John H. (Jack) Hickey Was a Lawyer for Cruise Lines, Now a Lawyer for You®

Cruise ship accidents and sexual assault on a cruise ship are one of Jack Hickey's specialties. He has a unique view on these claims having worked on both sides of cruise ship lawsuits and understands the challenges facing victims when they pursue litigation against large cruise lines. He’s published extensively on this matter as well as featured in multiple media outlets as an expert in his field. 

Hickey Law Firm offers 24/7 legal help and has a Facebook Group dedicated to providing resources and support for cruise ship accident and sexual assault victims. 

Admiralty and Maritime Law is complex, and it's crucial to have an attorney who knows the intricacies of the law and the rights of cruise passengers and anyone on a sea-going vessel. The Statute of Limitations, as well as the FBI involvement in sexual assault cases and the confusing ticket terms for filing a claim against a cruise line, further complicate these claims.
