Believing in environmental protection and businesses

This firm believes that one does not have to come at the expense of the other. An expert in environmental law that knows how to look for solutions that enable environmental matters to be handled in a commercially viable manner.

If you are unsure about your situation, contact me for a case consultation. I will provide an honest and upfront opinion about your options and your likelihood of success. 

If you do choose to hire me to handle your matter, I can explain the laws to you; help you evaluate your options; negotiate or mediate conflicts with other people; prepare letters, court forms, or other legal documents for you; and represent you in court.

Attorney Christopher Duggan holds a Juris Doctorate and a Masters of Studies in Environmental Law. He has spent many years resolving both large and small environmental legal disputes and has done so in both state and federal courts as well as appellate courts. This may be a new and daunting experience for you, but we have been through it before.

Advocating for You

I consider that honest and open communication is the key to a positive attorney/client relationship. I'll listen to you and make the effort to understand your concerns and the results that you seek.

My vast experience in environmental law enables me to provide practical advice and sound judgment. Litigation is only one of your options. In many cases, you can achieve the same or better results in a shorter time frame and for reduced costs through an out of court settlement.

Accessible

Throughout your matter, I will make sure that you have access to me. While the reality of legal practice means that there will be times when I'm involved in other matters and cannot respond immediately, I'll always seek to return telephone calls within 24 hours.

Informative

I'll keep you informed of any developments in your case and contact you directly prior to any important decisions and directions being put in place. I will provide you with a written agreement, which will govern the attorney/client relationship.

Collaborative

When you hire me, your needs become my focus. I will work with you to resolve the issues that are involved in your matter. Furthermore, I will recognize when you need assistance from other professionals and will assist with referrals and collaboration as seem appropriate.

The law does not just raise problems which we need to anticipate and combat. In many cases the law also provides opportunities. If you are considering legal action or a new business, I advise you about how to take advantage of and benefit from certain legal provisions.

Professional & Honest Counsel

I'll relentlessly pursue results for you and we will not be satisfied until you are. I have done this for clients for many years, and my results speak for themselves. All of my firm's business comes from word of mouth referrals. I don’t spend a lot to advertise because I don’t need to. My business is built on a good reputation.
