About Us

Our firm is nationally recognized as a pioneer in natural resource damages (“NRD”) litigation. The firm is regularly retained by public clients to pursue claims against large corporations that have caused significant injuries to groundwater and other natural resources. To date, the firm’s efforts have yielded judgments and settlements valued at more than $600 million in damages and restoration projects for its public clients, including the State of New Jersey, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Our firm also represents individuals and small businesses in the areas of environmental, consumer protection, products liability, toxic torts, and appellate litigation. We have assisted our clients in recovering substantial damages from major corporations such as Bank of America, AT&T, Texaco, ExxonMobil, IBM, Yamaha, and Suzuki.
