Exceptional Representation for Environmental Litigation

Environmental law was created to regulate the interaction of humans with the natural environment. As this interaction is multi-faceted and constantly changing, there are many new and old legal problems that arise. Since the formation of environmental law as a separate and distinct body of law in the 1960's, the swine and beef operations throughout our nation have encountered countless confrontations over nuisance and environmental regulations issues.

The cattle business started using confined animal feeding organizations (CAFOs) in the 1960's to meet the growing demand for meat. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that there are approximately 15,500 CAFOs in the United States, and these CAFOs contain 50% of all animals in this country. When you consider that these animal farms are increasing in size and in geographic concentration, it is no surprise that thousands of nuisance complaints, clean water issues and clean air lawsuits have shown up in courtrooms. When farmers and cattle and hog producers are faced with these challenging issues, they turn to Domina Law Group for the high-quality representation they need to protect their profession and their rights.

Since the 1970's, our firm has handled hundreds of environmental law cases throughout the United States. Our extensive trial work includes presentation to final verdict and judgment of more than a dozen nuisance cases, including numerous appellate decisions. In order to achieve a favorable outcome for environmental litigation cases, you need a firm who has the ability to undertake complex litigation and deal effectively with regulatory authorities. From complaints of air pollution to fracking lawsuits and litigation surrounding plant explosions, our firm has proven that we have the tenacity and legal knowledge to protect your rights.

Understanding Environmental Law

Environmental law is mostly controlled by federal governmental agencies, such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and many of the lawsuits dealing with environmental issues are filed under federal statutes. Whether you have been involved in a federal or common law lawsuit, our environmental law attorneys have the resources and legal skills to represent your case to final verdict. In the past, we have represented Clean Water Act litigation against the United States Department of Justice and other cases involving clean air claims by industrial organizations. Our experience with some of the largest federal government agencies in the country has prepared us to handle all types of environmental law cases, and we develop custom solutions for every client.

Environmental lawsuits can be filed under common law for cases involving nuisance, trespass, strict liability or negligence. A successful resolution of these lawsuits may result in recovery for damages to property, personal injury or bodily harm, and this further necessitates the need for talented legal representation. When you need a legal advocate who has a proven history of success in environmental lawsuits, choose Domina Law Group. Through hard work and a commitment to legal excellence, we have achieved several multi-billion dollar verdicts and have succeeded against seemingly impossible odds.

Types of Environmental Litigation

To provide you with more information about the types of environmental lawsuits, our team of lawyers has provided the following material for you. Please do not hesitate to call our firm for additional clarification and to learn about the many ways that we can protect your rights.

Air Pollution

The Clean Air Act and other laws have been created to reduce the concentrations of air pollutants in our country, but many people are still suffering from the health consequences of toxic air emissions, urban air pollution and acid rain. From animal feeding operations to industrial organizations, air pollution lawsuits have been filed against a broad range of businesses in the United States.

Water Contamination

At least 1,000 casualties every year can be attributed to water contamination. When a local water source is contaminated by animal waste, pesticides, or chemical leaks, serious illnesses and diseases can occur. Some of the common symptoms of contamination include nausea, stomach cramps, vomiting and diarrhea.


Fracking is the process that involves extracting coal seam gas, petroleum or natural gas from the earth by injecting pressurized chemicals or fluids into the ground. By releasing such powerful and toxic chemicals into the ground, the ground water and air supply are also compromised. Fracking can lead to substantial health problems such as gastrointestinal effects, rashes, dizziness and more.

Oil Spills

One of the most catastrophic oil spills of all time, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, drew national attention to the devastation that can be caused when crude and toxic oil is spilled into the environment. Thousands of nuisance complaints and toxic torts have been filed because of the ramifications of the spill in regards to loss of profits, loss of sales, and other damages.

Toxic Chemical Leaks

When toxic chemicals are released into the environment, they can easily penetrate deep ground water sources and cause contamination of drinking water. Toxic chemical leaks also affect air quality and can lead serious illnesses and diseases over a period of time. Workers who have direct exposure or contact with toxic chemicals on a daily basis must be especially careful of chemical leaks.

Plant Explosions

Industrial plants are home to thousands of chemicals that are used to make our lives easier and more comfortable, but poor maintenance and ignorance of safety protocol can lead to plant explosions. Those who work in plants and refineries must always be aware of this possibility and the serious injuries and fatalities that can result from an explosion.
