If you have never worked with a lawyer before, you may be wondering what to expect. At Rome, Arata, Baxley & Stelly, LLC, we make client service a priority, preferring to work directly with clients rather than handling all communications via paralegals or staff.

Finding the right doctors, missing weeks or months of work, worrying about bills and adjusting to life with a serious injury can take a toll on every member of the family. We can help you find solutions to these problems and look ahead to your future needs as well. Our attorneys have extensive experience representing injured railroad workers and their families with FELA (Federal Employers Liability Act) claims. We also represent injured maritime workers in Jones Act , general maritime claims and other cases. You can rely on our knowledge of the laws governing the railroad and maritime industries. We help injured workers file the appropriate claims correctly and stand up for their right to compensation.
