Albany Contaminated Water Litigation Lawyers

Proudly Serving the Capital District

Water pollution is on the rise in the U.S. Even before the BP Oil Spill, the EPA's National Water Quality Inventory found that more than 40% of rivers and 60% of lakes are overly polluted and cannot be used activities such as swimming, fishing, or drinking. Toxic substances can persist for generations, causing irreparable injury to the environment and human health.

Our team is experienced at litigating complex federal and state environmental claims related to contaminated property, groundwater, and drinking water supplies, including individuals who have suffered personal injury because of exposure to water pollutants such as PCBs.
