When corporations pollute our air, soil, groundwater, and waterways, innocent people suffer. Indiscriminate pollution not only poses a health and safety risk for unwary citizens, it often causes property values to plummet. Litigation over environmental torts can be complex and expensive. It cannot be undertaken without the resources and expertise of not only attorneys, but environmental testing experts, economists, valuation experts, and land experts.
