Do You Have an Environmental Law Claim?

Different Environmental Law Issues

Often times, a person won't know they are in violation of an environmental protection law, but with urban planning regulations, water and air rights and pollution issues, it is easy to be in violation of some sort of environmental law without even knowing it.

Whether the issue be the amount of emissions permitted in a certain location or the storage and disposal of chemicals, the fines and potential criminal ramifications can be huge. An environmental law lawyer can help you or business recognize which laws are applicable to your situation as well as comply with existing laws. They will also be able to create policies that will limit any potential liabilities.

What to Expect from an Initial Consultation

  • Seek to determine whether the attorney can represent you. There is no one-size-fits-all legal solution and it may turn out your needs are better served by an attorney in a different specialization.
  • It's important to find a legal ally who is both competent in the law and someone you can trust to protect your interests.
  • Discuss how the practice's billing works and discuss possible additional charges or fees that may arise during or after the resolution of your case.
