We are advocates for the natural environment. We have deep and broad experience with the laws that can safeguard that environment. Over the years, we have done a lot of work related to solid waste, water and air pollution, and endangered species protection. We have fought incompatible land uses. We help clients protect their surroundings and wildlife and enjoy a healthy environment in the face of industrialization and urbanization.
Our loyalties are not divided. We do not argue one day for waivers/variances from protections and the next, for strict enforcement. We understand that all legal fights have a political aspect to them.
