Environmental Law

Increasingly complex environmental laws and challenging technical considerations confront practically every company doing business today. Michel & Associates, P.C. provides quality legal and technical services to those clients facing environmental issues in any regulatory or adversarial context.

Michel & Associates’s attorneys represent small, medium, and Fortune 500-sized companies, as well as developers, natural resource management advocacy groups, and individuals in environmental matters.

We often handle Brownfield projects and work with clients on contaminated property characterization and remediation. Our attorneys also have extensive experience with environmental legislation such as CERCLA, RCRA, CEQA, NEPA, Proposition 65, the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts, and the Endangered Species Act.

Michel & Associates’s attorneys have handled many environmental matters of national prominence, including the Exxon Valdez oil spill, the follow-up Chromium VI cases made famous by the “Erin Brokovich” movie, the OII Superfund Site, the Denova Environmental Superfund Site, the Santa Margarita River adjudication, and Times Beach / Syntech chemical dioxin cost-allocation action.
