Texas Environmental Attorneys
Defending and protecting clients in today’s regulatory world.
Strong Pipkin’s Houston and Beaumont attorneys are adept at navigating the nation’s ever-changing regulatory landscape. The firm’s environmental lawyers have significant experience with legal matters involving:
- CERCLA and superfund site litigation,
- airborne contamination and CAA liability,
- contamination of public and private water sources and CWA and OPA liability,
- environmental site assessments,
- underground storage tanks,
- seismic testing damage, and
- environmental remediation.
Some of the firm’s largest cases have involved claims of airborne contamination, sometimes involving thousands of plaintiffs. In one such case we successfully defended a client against more than 3,000 plaintiffs claiming physical injury from alleged releases of airborne contaminants, including excessive amounts of hydrogen sulfide, sulphur dioxide, nitrous oxide, hydrocarbons, and particulate matter.
Our Texas environmental law attorneys apply both creativity and technology to support our clients. In one putative class action suit involving more than 8,000 properties, for example, we conceived a mapping project and database involving almost 100 years of historical data, enabling near-instant recall of information that included potential alternative sources of contamination. The case was voluntarily dismissed by plaintiffs’ counsel.
