About Arnold & Itkin

We deliver the best future for injured offshore workers by winning the best results.

No Matter WhatTM

Premier Maritime Attorneys

The Nation’s Leader in Catastrophic Maritime, Jones Act & Offshore Injury Cases

We live in a world where technology has never been more advanced, where safety standards have reached the highest echelons, and where workers’ rights are clearly defined. And yet, offshore accidents occur with alarming frequency. 

Explosions, fires, blowouts, and a host of maritime disasters claim workers’ lives or leave them with lifelong injuries. That's why Kurt Arnold and Jason Itkin established Arnold & Itkin in 2004 as a law firm with a bigger purpose: to help people. At Arnold & Itkin, we fight to level the playing field between large corporations and the people they have hurt. When these companies put profits first, we hold them accountable. 

We are known as the nation's leading maritime law firm, and for good reason.

We don't back down from a challenge; we rise up and gather our resources to put up a fight that forces oil and gas giants—and their teams of attorneys—to own up to their mistakes and pay for the harm they've caused. We outwork, outlawyer, and outsmart the competition because we care about the people we represent. They're family to us.

What has this approach earned? More than $20 billion in verdicts and settlements for our clients. This represents life-changing compensation for people who have experienced the worst injuries and losses. It represents brighter futures.

We have helped after every major maritime disaster in the past 20 years, and our injury attorneys will continue to stand up for what's right. No matter what.

    “Just knowing they were going to do everything they could to make sure they find out the truth, to make sure we were taken care of for life. Just seeing that they actually cared and wanted the best for the families. They didn’t just think you were a number. They actually care.
