Working Together To Keep You Afloat

Get To Know Me, Attorney Michael X. Savasuk

Unlike other admiralty law attorneys, I bring a broad, and likely unique perspective to my law practice because of my experiences. Over three decades ago, in 1986, I moved to Maine and opened my own practice.

What sets me apart, besides my decades of experience, is the insight I gleaned from attending and graduating from the Maine Maritime Academy, and my years serving as a deck officer on large oil tankers in the merchant marine. After that I went to law school and provided admiralty legal counsel to clients for a large admiralty firm in New York City, where I learned an incredible amount about the law and how it can be utilized to afford protections to those who work on the seas.

More Than 30 Years Of Experience

While I am known for my work in admiralty and maritime law, I also handle commercial, civil, employment discrimination and personal injury litigation. I have decades of real life experience, and I’ve also worked as an adjunct admiralty law professor.

I have defended million-dollar claims, as well as obtained multimillion-dollar verdicts. One of my most acclaimed cases was a salvage case where I represented the captain and crew. I obtained the largest salvage award ever in the United States for my clients.
