Attorneys who have “been there, done that” get to the crux of any problem and find pragmatic, business-minded solutions.
Unlike many law firms that hold themselves out as “environmental litigators,” we actually try cases. Our clients and opposing parties know that if matters cannot be resolved sensibly, we are able try the dispute in court before a judge or jury. Our willingness and ability to go to the mat if needed gets results for our clients.
Experience that runs the gamut.
Our environmental lawyers have litigated cases in federal and state courts across the United States involving Mafia-run Superfund sites, cargo barges that sank in Great Lakes’ storms, covert disposal of dry cleaning wastes that contaminated groundwater for the next 500 years, sewage pipes that released such significant amounts of nitrogen and phosphorous that they caused the growth of the largest algae known on the planet, punctures in chemical liners that released millions of gallons of toxins into the desert sands of New Mexico, exposure of people and animals to cancer causing contaminants, the closure of the most famous skeet shooting club in the nation as the result of the discharge of millions of tons of lead and clay pigeons into Long Island Sound, midnight dumping of thousands of drums of toxins at a rural pig farm in Rhode Island, million dollar shipping cranes destroyed by hurricanes in Puerto Rico and the cleanup of a Superfund site buried under 38 million tires.
In nearly all of the environmental litigation matters we have handled, we have also pursued insurance benefits for our policyholder clients, recovering tens of millions of dollars.
