Admiralty

Glow In The Dark Law’s™ Proctor In Admiralty can help with your maritime legal needs, here in Hampton Roads or at any U.S. port of call.

The Glow In The Dark Lawyer™ knows how vitally important the sea is to Hampton Roads and the Nation for trade, for defense, and for pleasure.

From the world’s largest naval base located in Norfolk, the various Ports of Virginia located along our waters (NIT, PMT, PCY, NNMT, and RMT), the beaches and harbors of all Seven Cities, and all the waterfront properties in Hampton Roads, the Admiralty is vitally important to Hampton Roads and her residents.

Whether you are a freight forwarder dealing with lost cargo; a shipyard or bunker supplier seeking to recover on a maritime lien; a vacationer injured on a jet ski; a beach or riverfront property owner; a sailor or longshoreman injured on the job; a salvor who rescued another’s vessel either freed from its moorings or succumbing to the perils of the sea; seeking to lay claim to an abandoned or derelict vessel; or you want to stake a claim to long lost treasure, you need a lawyer who knows the law of the sea and who is ready to see to your interests.
