About This Firm

Rivkind & Margulies, P.A., is a preeminent maritime and admiralty law firm with an international reputation for dedication and excellence. Brett Rivkind and Bruce Margulies combine nearly 40 years of practice to form a highly specialized firm that focuses exclusively on maritime law.

The firm aggressively represents passengers and crew members from around the world who have been injured or victimized on a cruise ship, yacht, boat or other water craft.

The attorneys routinely are solicited for appearances on national television and news programs, often lecture on maritime law to judges and attorneys, and have testified before Congress on cruise ship safety. Other attorneys also seek Rivkind & Margulies' counsel on maritime injury cases and appeals because of the firm's exceptional skills and expertise in this complex area of law.

This expertise has led to multiple successes on behalf of clients, in high-profile cases.

As a leader in the maritime field, the firm has established major contacts who assist in handling all types of maritime cases. Our attorneys utilize various maritime experts suited to the facts of each case. We consult with an ex-ship's medical doctor who reviews cases to determine whether a ship's physician may have committed medical negligence. We deal with Captains who review cases to determine the liability of the cruise ship company. We have contacts with ex-security officers of cruise ships who are available for consultation regarding breach of security issues in cases such as sexual assaults.

Our legal team is familiar with various manuals and procedures of cruise ship companies, including required safety management systems that cruise lines must put in place to protect passengers. Our attorneys and experts can easily determine whether regulations were violated.

Clients can expect to work directly with these experienced attorneys, not with associates and paralegals who have limited familiarity with their case or with maritime law. In addition to our lawyers, we have a complete bilingual staff who will be working on your case.

Based in Miami, the firm is ideally situated near one of the world's greatest cruise line hubs. Further, cruise lines generally require any litigation against them be filed in Florida courts.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.

Anonymity

Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
