Environmental Justice Lawyers

It’s an unfortunate truth that low-income communities are often treated unequally in the eyes of the government and large corporations. In many cases, government organizations and other companies will unevenly dispose of their toxic waste in low-income communities and put residents at risk of serious health concerns. While these areas might not be able to afford the luxuries of neighboring communities, it doesn’t mean that they should have to endure living with unclean air and water.

Everyone is entitled to live in a healthy environment, yet these negligent organizations seem to believe that some areas are more important than others. By teaming up with an experienced attorney, you can advocate for your situation in the face of these large organizations and ensure that your voice is heard. If you believe that your property was contaminated by discriminatory disposal of toxic waste, contact us today to get started.

What Is Environmental Justice?

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), environmental justice is defined as the “fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income, with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies.” This means that everyone has the right to a voice in any potential developments that affect their immediate environment, regardless of their personal characteristics or financial status. The EPA emphasizes “fair treatment” to ensure that negative environmental repercussions should be evenly distributed throughout all communities and regions, rather than focused on one area. 

Environmental protection laws exist to protect your family and prevent any organization from creating a toxic environment near your property. If an organization fails to comply with these laws, you could be entitled to compensation, and an environmental lawyer can help advocate for your situation.

Can I Afford an Attorney?

You’ve likely heard that attorneys are expensive to retain, and in most cases, you’d be correct. At Morgan & Morgan, we believe that everyone should be able to afford proficient representation, regardless of their financial situation. That’s why our team operates on a contingency—meaning it costs you nothing out-of-pocket to hire us, and we’re only paid when we win. No one should have to settle for less than they deserve, so we’ve created a system that allows everyone to get the assistance they need.

Contact Morgan & Morgan

In the most difficult moments of your life, Morgan & Morgan has your back. Some organizations believe that environmental justice violations are a victimless crime, but in reality, the victims are forced to live in a setting that jeopardizes their health and wellbeing. No one should have to live like that, and our attorneys are ready and eager to help you reach the best possible solution for your case. If a third-party organization has created a toxic environment near your residence, contact us today to get started.

Jerri
Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
