New Jersey and New York Environmental Law Attorneys Stand by your Side

Protecting your rights to property, health and safety

In New Jersey, New York and across the country, environmental regulations are designed to protect individuals and communities from negligent harm to the soil, air, and water. Unfortunately, as complex and comprehensive as these laws appear, they cannot guarantee compliance. Moreover, regulatory agencies often hold the wrong parties accountable for contamination that can be costly to clean up. If you find yourself facing a legal dilemma related to environmental law, the knowledgeable attorneys at Lieberman Blecher & Sinkevich are prepared to help. Our talented professionals represent various stakeholders, including landowners, homeowners, businesses, government entities, and community associations, in environmental litigation on numerous matters. Drawing on more than 60 years of combined experience, Lieberman Blecher & Sinkevich provides determined assistance to resolve your issues.

  • Asserting your Rights in Contamination Cases

    Industrial chemicals are a double-edged sword: they enable the highest standard of living in the world, but, handled carelessly, they can ruin lives and property. Our environmental lawyers assist clients in resolving contamination cases arising from:

    • Underground storage tanks — USTs are often used to store heating oil, gasoline and other materials. But when these vats leak into the soil or groundwater, the damage can be catastrophic. We help individuals and communities recover damages from at-fault parties and assist the tank owners in reaching reasonable settlements to cure damage.
    • Toxic exposure — We manage toxic exposure claims related to contaminated drinking water, contaminated air, toxic mold, and property damage on behalf of individuals and communities.

    If you are presumed responsible for contamination or have suffered damage from a toxic release, we can provide the experienced representation you need to resolve your problem.

Practical Solutions to Challenges of Remediation, Including Cleanup Costs and Regulatory Penalties

Parties presumed to be responsible for environmental problems face a host of challenges to resolve their issues, including:

  • DEP and DEC penalties — We have an excellent track record when representing businesses in proceedings before the N.J. Department of Environmental Protection and NY Department of Environmental Conservation in state and federal court to reduce or eliminate penalty assessments.
  • Hazardous site remediation — We represent individuals and communities demanding environmental cleanup of toxic sites as well as responsible parties seeking approval of a remediation plan.
  • Environmental cost recovery — If you have been burdened with the cost of remediating a site contaminated by another person or entity, our attorneys can help you recover costs from the party who was actually responsible.

Whenever our attorneys undertake a case, our goal is to deliver exceptional representation and positive results in the briefest time possible.
