From Marina Del Rey to Long Beach, Redondo Beach (King Harbor,) Castaic Lake, and beyond with over twenty-five years of professional boating experience, Rice & Bloomfield understands how people can be injured while boating. We represent clients in the Southern California area who were injured or lost a loved one in a boating accident or boating collision.
