Aviation law encompasses so much more than just time in the sky. From the time a passenger books a ticket to the time they make their way out of the airport at a destination, there are numerous interactions fraught with potential liability. 

Litigating aviation matters requires a unique knowledge of the interplay between the entities involved.  Issues of tender, indemnity and immunity need to be resolved at the outset, while contractual agreements between parties should be analyzed to confirm liability.

Knowing all of these details up front is the key to developing a successful litigation strategy. That’s where Morgan, Akins & Jackson comes in. For over fifteen years, our attorneys have been at the forefront of some of the country’s most notable aviation cases.
