About John MerriamI was an unlicensed seaman in the U.S. merchant marine for 12 years, while working my way through college and law school. Law school tuition was paid for with a scholarship from the Seafarers Int'l Union. I have practiced maritime law for 30 years and for the past 16 years have restricted my practice to the representation of claimants for maritime injury and wages.
