Aviation Law

Few specialized legal practices involve the global scope and diversity of components as aviation law.

At Seltzer Caplan McMahon Vitek, some of our members are both lawyers and licensed pilots whose love of flying has segued into an aviation law practice, enabling us to build strong cases and defenses for diverse clients, including military defense contractors and major aircraft manufacturers.

From products liability claims to aviation accidents and hijackings, we understand the international scope aviation law embodies in covering general, commercial and military aviation matters.

Our attorneys have broad experience representing contractors, operators and manufacturers in diverse civil lawsuits against claims of trade secret misappropriation, military procurement process bribery and aviation mechanical defects.

We have a track record of successfully defending clients involved in lengthy litigation (including one of the longest civil trials in San Diego history) and representing clients as they navigate international, federal and state laws as well as aviation oversight by agencies such as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

SCMV attorneys are also keenly aware of the emotional complexities surrounding aviation accidents and have represented family members in wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits.
