We have been extensively involved in the practice of environmental law at the federal and state levels since the 1980s. Our client base includes clients who range in size from small family-owned businesses to large companies with multi-state environmental concerns. We have represented manufacturers, developers, transporters and land owners in the Muskegon area, throughout the state of Michigan, and nationally. We bring a depth and range of experience to our clients’ concerns that enable us to represent our clients on a far more efficient and cost-effective basis than would otherwise be possible.

We strive for practical, common sense solutions to environmental problems. We believe our clients’ interests are best served by negotiation with and education of agency personnel. However, we do not hesitate to object to and, if necessary, vigorously challenge arbitrary agency or citizen group positions that go beyond responsible regulation.

We believe in being proactive in resolving potential environmental issues and liabilities before they become significant obstacles for our clients. We regularly assist our clients in planning for and responding to the frequent changes in environmental laws and regulations. We are available to provide day-to-day advisory services to individual plants and corporate management and legal staffs with on-going environmental compliance matters.

We have experience in all areas of environmental law, and have assisted our clients in the following areas:
