In one sense, Green Law is environmental advocacy as traditionally practiced by environmental lawyers. It includes areas such as toxic tort litigation (exposure to toxic substances through spills, improper storage of chemicals, toxic mold, and so on that cause injury) and litigation in areas like clean air, water, wildlife, endangered species and more. It is the area of law that deals with protecting this planet so that citizens can enjoy the benefits of their natural environment.
Some of these benefits include better health, relaxation, recreational value, economic boosts, and others. It is also an area that deals with defending those accused of doing some injury to the environment.
Green Law, for us, goes beyond that. It is a code we practice by. It includes reducing the resources used, from saving paper to reducing the energy and the carbon footprint of our law practice. It includes protecting the environment of the community we live in, not only through our professional activities, but by volunteering in clean-up efforts, aiding education and outreach for the community, and developing and fostering a sense of connection between the community and the environment.
We also recognize that the environment is not just the natural world around you, but your place in it. Your environment includes your home, your family, your plans, and your financial comfort.
We are dedicated to protecting your entire environment whether it is protecting your property from a toxic spill or protecting your home from other kinds of damage (like the actions of neighbors or utility companies).
