Attorney Biography

Promoting and protecting the interests of maritime businesses and individuals throughout the Gulf and East Coasts, John K. Fulweiler is a Proctor-In-Admiralty. Whether pursuing class action status for recreational boaters or, representing maritime interests in wind power litigation, John brings a practical understanding to maritime legal issues having previously worked in the commercial marine sector.

After completing a marine affairs degree at the University of Rhode Island, John graduated from law school and immediately began practicing admiralty law in New York where he became a partner in a well-known maritime law firm. He is admitted to the federal and state bars of numerous jurisdictions including Florida, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island and possesses extensive experience prosecuting and defending maritime claims as well as composing and negotiating maritime contracts.
