ACW&N Attorney Designated “Proctor in Admiralty”

Anderson Carey Williams & Neidzwski, LLP is proud to announce that one of its attorneys, Adam Deitz, has been designated “Proctor in Admiralty” by the Maritime Law Association of the United States (“MLA”).

The MLA is a professional organization affiliated with the American Bar Association and concerned with improvements in maritime law.  The designation “Proctor in Admiralty” is of ancient origin and applied to lawyers entitled to handle maritime litigation. The word “Proctor” was derived from the Roman word “Procurator,” which was translated into English as “Proctor” when the Admiralty Courts were set up in England in the 13th century with jurisdiction over disputes within the Royal Navy as well as purely commercial maritime matters. The designation was continued in the American colonies and, until recently, in the U.S. federal court system. The title of “Proctor” now designates the most distinguished class of MLA membership for practicing maritime attorneys.

The attorneys at Anderson Carey Williams & Neidzwski, LLP are proud of the firm’s long history representing mariners along the west coast and across the world for over forty years.  The firm’s admiralty lawyers have a unique understanding of maritime law and the perils faced by seamen, commercial fishermen, longshoremen, recreational boaters, and anyone else injured on the water.  ACW&N stands ready to assist.
