This partnership stems from the two firms’ successful collaboration on the case against SoCalGas Company following the Aliso Canyon gas well blowout in California.
We are committed to holding companies accountable when negligence results in devastating environmental consequences. In addition to our work on behalf of Porter Ranch residents who have suffered as a result of the gas well blowout, we previously, and successfully, took on BP after the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
Morgan & Morgan is honored to continue to work closely with these premier environmental litigators who have dedicated their careers to protecting the environment and communities affected by pollution.
John Morgan praised both men for their lifelong work protecting the environment and their instrumental role in the fight on behalf of Porter Ranch residents.
“We are now representing almost 3000 homeowners and the occupants of those homes,” said John. Kennedy and Madonna were “instrumental,” he continued, as they share a “passion for the environment and civil justice.”
Kennedy has long been a staunch advocate for the environment. His role in helping Riverkeeper fight to restore the Hudson River earned him a spot on Time Magazine’s “Heroes of the Planet” list. Mr. Kennedy also played a key role in negotiating the New York City watershed agreement, which is regarded as an international model for deals of its kind.
Aside from being a world famous environmental lawyer, Mr. Kennedy is also a prolific author. He has published several books on politics, as well as three children’s books and has had articles published in many of the country’s most notable newspapers and magazines.
Kevin J. Madonna also has extensive experience fighting for environmental protection. He has served as the Executive Director of the Waterkeeper Alliance, and worked with organizations like the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the United Nations Environment Programme, and the United States Environmental Protection Agency, to name a few.
We are excited to welcome these fine lawyers to our firm!
