Our attorneys and experts intimately understand the inner working of the federal agencies - National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration - charged with investigating air disasters and regulating air carriers. Decades of experience in negotiating the complex set of federal rules and laws that regulate the airline industry give Nolan Law Group a great advantage in this ever-challenging area of law.

Official reports issued after completion of an investigation do not assign liability, but do provide insight into the probable causes of an accident. Nolan Law Group's staff includes attorneys who are active pilots and aeronautic engineers. In addition, we employ experts and investigators to assist in analyzing the information and build a case for liability to the proper entity or, in most cases, entities. Whether it is the airplane manufacturer, the airline, a parts manufacturer or air traffic control, we find the facts that build a winning lawsuit.
