Representative Cases

We represented a landowner whose property was contaminated by a large battery-manufacturer.  The manufacturer delayed clean-up of the property, and our client filed suit.  The case settled the day of trial on terms very favorable for our client.

We represented another landowner whose property was contaminated by a large company.  Our client worked with the company for years to clean-up the contamination.  The company failed to do so, and our client filed suit.  The case settled (terms are confidential).
