He has many expert resources to bring to your case to help you identify and solve your environmental problem.
Bringing An Environmental Claim
While the Texas Supreme Court has disallowed most causes of civil action for those who claim personal harm from environmental contamination, some causes of civil action remain. For example, homeowners may have a cause of action for loss of property value.
A current problem in the Houston area is that of water contaminated by radiation. In some parts of our community, there are naturally occurring levels of radiation in the ground water. Developers of residential properties and municipal utility districts (MUDs) need to be aware of this dangerous water condition and must drill to another water level to secure safe water for the community. Lack of access to safe water will have a significant negative impact on property values.

Our environmental lawyers are available to help you before any negative civil or criminal action has occurred. We can help you determine if your business is in compliance with EPA laws and regulations, with the Texas Natural Resources Code, with local landfill codes, and with the Harris County DA’s office environmental task force.
