Don K. Haycraft

Liskow & Lewis

Don Haycraft focuses on maritime law, in cases ranging from Jones Act personal injury, wrongful death and longshoremen’s injuries to major toxic tort class certification hearings and federal multi-district litigation. Don served as defense liaison trial counsel in two major multi-district litigation cases in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana.

Over the past 30-plus years, he has handled numerous jury trials to verdict and bench trials in various state and federal courts in Louisiana, as well as in state and federal courts in Texas, Mississippi, Illinois and elsewhere in the nation. His clients have included major oil companies, global helicopter manufacturers and the nation’s largest inland marine company.

From 2010 through 2014, Don served as counsel to BP in the Deepwater Horizon Incident on maritime aspects of the case and served on the trial team during the Phase One trial February – April 2013. This trial had been labeled “Trial of the Century” in several media sources, and although that is a cliché, it was truly a great experience at a very high level of trial work.
