  Maritime Criminal Matters

In this era of heightened environmental enforcement and criminal prosecutions, businesses and corporate leaders need a firm that can provide representation to avoid potential criminal liability or to defend their companies, its officers and its employees against criminal charges related to pollution incidents and other environmental law and regulatory violations.

Fowler Rodriguez defends vessel owners, operators, officers and crew members against criminal charges relating to environmental law offenses.  Our attorneys are well-versed in legal and technical matters in the maritime, environmental, and criminal defense fields.  We are prepared to represent clients who are faced with both civil and criminal liabilities arising from maritime and/or environmental incidents.  Not only do our attorneys defend clients against criminal charges, they also organize the defense of multiple parties, perform vessel inspections, supervise internal investigations, and create compliance programs on behalf of corporations, vessel owners and operators to prevent violations of state and federal laws.  Of course, when necessary, our trial litigators defend the rights of our clients at trial.

The maritime criminal defense section of Fowler Rodriguez provides legal representation and counsel in matters involving violations of the Clean Water Act, the Act to Prevent Pollution from Ships/MARPOL, the Ports and Waterways Safety Act, the Clean Air Act, the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, the Endangered Species Act and the Seaman’s Manslaughter Act, among other laws and regulations.  Our attorneys defend against criminal enforcement and regulatory actions initiated by the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the U.S. Coast Guard, together with other federal and state environmental enforcement agencies.
