Aviation, Product Liability and Insurance Defense

Jacobs Law Group, P.C.’s aviation, product liability and insurance defense practice is uniquely experienced and dedicated to serving the needs of our manufacturer, operator and insurance clients. Chair Laurie A. Salita’s introduction to aviation litigation occurred in September 2001 when her prior firm was retained to handle certain claims stemming from the September 11th terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. From that day forward, Laurie has litigated matters large and small for airlines, manufacturers, FBOs, charter and business aviation companies, catering companies, trade groups, airports (and related municipalities), companies engaged in airport and baggage conveyor construction and their insurers. The Aviation, Products Liability and Insurance Defense team at Jacobs Law Group, P.C. is comprised of attorneys who believe in their clients’ products and businesses. We never stop learning. Each member of the team pursues technical training, hands-on opportunities to understand our clients’ products and businesses and continuing education in their fields. Pilot training, technical engine school and one-on-one education with clients in the plant or on the tarmac are just examples of how our attorneys continuously pursue relevant knowledge, dedicate themselves to our clients and add value to our services. We have litigated cases in state and federal courts throughout the country. We are frequent authors and presenters on matters impacting the industry, but our dedication to the business needs of our clients, our ability to offer competitive rates and our promise to maximize efficiency is what separates us from our competition.
