An Aggressive Georgia Environmental Law Attorney
Protecting our world
Environmental laws are designed to protect our world from the substantial harm caused by unethical or negligent companies. Understanding the full scope of environmental laws requires knowledge about federal legislation, state statutes, agency regulations, and civil and criminal codes. Mary Carole Cooney has remained committed for the past 36 years to assisting companies with compliance audits and defending the rights of individuals and their communities from ecological abuses.
Using legal means to defend your rights to a clean environment
The laws addressing environmental issues continually change. Litigation constantly pits industry against communities and special interest groups. I remain updated on new laws and court decisions that affect conservation policies. Some of the essential laws I apply to protecting your rights include:
Ensuring your company complies with the law
Your company can avoid substantial costs, government interference and bad press by remaining in compliance with applicable environmental laws. I work closely with your internal staff, engineers and scientists to perform audits that are not only good for the environment, but also good for business. If your company has obeyed the law and yet been unfairly accused of contamination or noncompliance, I rigorously defend your business against unjust regulation and assist you in the mitigation of damages.
Zealously pursuing tort litigation
Some environmental transgressions are best fought in the courtroom. Tort litigation gives you recourse to force companies to obey the law and mandate they pay the expenses of rectifying the problems they caused. If you have been injured or sickened or your property damaged because of an industry’s environmental negligence, you deserve compensation. In addition to federal legislation, I use common law philosophies, such as trespass and nuisance, to recover your losses.
