Summary

H. L. George Knowles is a partner with Injury At Sea. He graduated from the University of Washington in 1969. After spending two years in the U.S. Army as a First Lieutenant in the Corps of Engineers, George attended law school. He has been a practicing maritime lawyer since graduating from the University of Santa Clara Law School (Cum Laude) in 1973. Mr. Knowles comes from a long line of seafarers and fishermen. He has been a fisherman himself, owning the F/V GRIZZLY, a 125-foot Bering Sea crab boat.

The first four years of Mr. Knowles' legal career were spent working for a local marine insurance defense firm before leaving to represent injured seamen. This early experience has given him great insight into the inner workings and thinking of the maritime insurance industry which is invaluable when negotiating settlements on behalf of a maritime injury case.

Mr. Knowles is a member of the American Trial Lawyers Association, Washington Trial Lawyers Association and Maritime Lawyers Section of the State Trial Lawyers.

Mr. Knowles is admitted to practice before all state courts in the State of Washington, United States District Court (federal), the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court.

In addition, Mr. Knowles frequently acts as mediator of personal maritime injury cases at the request of other members of the Maritime Bar.
