Poliakoff & Associates has a policy in environmental cases of rejecting the representation of companies with prior environmental violations. As a result, most of our environmental representation is on behalf of individuals and companies that have been injured by environmental contamination. We believe in providing legal talent to those who have been personally injured by exposure to toxic substances, and whose property has been contaminated.
Our environmental attorneys have experience in the areas of toxic exposure and contaminated property, including groundwater and drinking water contamination, permitting and compliance matters (including governmental agency challenges), hazardous substance discharges, toxic torts, and other environmental cases.
We are qualified and have been successful in assisting clients who have been exposed to toxic materials in the workplace or home through contaminated groundwater, soils, or air. We give our clients individual attention so we can understand the whole breadth of any related injuries. We gather scientific data and utilize our understanding of environmental laws to protect our clients’ interests. We have also provided pro bono environmental legal representation to various national and local environmental groups.
We represent plaintiffs in environmental litigation on a contingency basis. If we fail to obtain compensation for your injuries, we will not charge you a fee.
