Henry Nuss Dabney W. Pettus Katie Pigott Craig S. Smith Tracey M. Smith Marshall Swanson Leo James Welder, Jr. Frank L. McNiff, Jr., Partner Frank L. McNiff, Jr., a graduate of the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, a former commanding officer and a recent retiree of 20 years in the U. S. Coast Guard Reserve, brings unique nautical experience to the practice of law in the firm's Maritime and General Litigation sections. During his time in the Coast Guard, Frank realized his nautical experience would prove helpful in maritime law. His most difficult professional challenge came in shifting his mindset from "military" to "civilian," a shift he accomplished by realizing that both systems work and then using the best of each. Mr. McNiff represents ship owners, agents, charterers, maritime employers and contractors in all areas of maritime torts, seamen's injuries, contracts, oil and chemical releases and other regulatory violations. He also handles cases involving stowaways, charter disputes, cargo claims, investigations, property damage and other matters involving maritime commerce, and represents insurance companies in cases involving personal injury and other non-maritime torts. He has also developed an active general litigation practice involving trucking accidents as well as commercial disputes. Frank has represented clients before federal and state courts and administrative agencies, including the United States Coast Guard, United States Department of Immigration and Naturalization and Texas General Land Office. He believes in resolving the problem as quickly and as cost-effectively as possible while maintaining the highest ethical standards. His interpersonal skills and maritime knowledge have earned him a reputation as a "closer" who resolves issues rather than stringing them out. In August 2003, he and his partners formed Welder Leshin, LLP.
