While environmental litigation, whistleblower cases, and civil rights lawsuits seem to be very different areas of law, they are united by one common theme: making right what is wrong. Our firm has experience in each of these areas of law, and in many of these cases, we can help you on a contingent fee basis at no upfront cost to you. Read on for more information about these types of cases.
If you or your property has been harmed by oil and gas operations, a coal ash spill, or harmful emissions from a refinery, we can help you navigate the complex state and federal pollution laws to clean up the air, water, and land.
In addition, we help landowners and business owners who are voluntarily cleaning up pollution with interfacing with state and federal agencies or in bringing claims against other responsible parties to pay their fair share.
We also represent citizen groups challenging pollution that is harming their communities. We can engage in rulemaking proceedings and bring permit challenges in state and federal court or bring direct enforcement actions to enforce our bedrock laws like the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act.

As an employee of a government agency or a private company, you may become aware of wrongdoing knowingly occurring in your organization. Such wrongdoing can occur in a variety of contexts, but examples include a corporation's failure to comply with mandatory government standards resulting in a hazardous situation, an abuse of position in the government for personal gain, or submitting false claims to government programs like Medicare or Medicaid. For many, this presents a difficult dilemma and a feeling of helplessness.
In these uncomfortable situations, we can help advise you as to the proper course of action and consider important factors such as your legal options and obligations and whether you may be in legal jeopardy yourself by staying quiet. If a lawsuit is necessary to stop the wrongdoing and to address its effects, we have experience in these types of case and can help. Your no-risk consultation with us is confidential.
