Environmental law is a complex system of interrelated statutes, regulations, rules, guidelines, administrative rulings and judicial decisions designed to promote public health, encourage safe practices and preserve the environment while balancing society's interest in economic growth.
These rules and regulations constantly change and evolve as science advances, political philosophies fluctuate and we all gain a greater understanding of how our actions impact each other and the world we share.
Most businesses and communities encounter environmental issues at one time or another, and for some it is a daily concern. To protect and grow your business or community, you need environmental lawyers with a deep knowledge of our complex system of federal, state and local environmental laws and broad experience preventing and solving environmental issues.
