I may have been mistaken in this thread title. For some reason I read or thought I read that Allweiss was the attorney for the Insurance company. It appears that he may just be the attorney for Shoreline.

I cannot find the article or document where I thought I read that MA was the attorney for the Insurance Company. I will keep looking.

From the article in your first post:

Quote:
Survivors who filed claims with Shoreline Cruises received a letter in January from company lawyer Michael Allweiss, explaining the insurance problem.
He's the attorney for the tour boat.

It appears I drew the conclusion from the aforementioned article but was indeed mistaken as it appears in all accounts that MA is the attorney for Shoreline. My mistake and appologies.

That just shows you how much people pay attention to the policies they pay to protect them. Me included. Damn shame for all those involved

A boat insured only for accidents on land? Nice racket...

Lawyers will have their meter running for ever and from every direction on that one. My guess.... Ten to fifteen years before it is sorted out and the family will get nothing after the lawyers are done.

What kind of retainer do you think Allweiss got for this deal?
