Hazardous Materials and Environmental Law

Environmental laws and rules regulating "hazmat" are complex. Some carry criminal and monetary penalties that have the potential to leave a company in ruins. At Michael L. Dworkin and Associates in San Francisco, our attorneys are experienced in helping clients with required environmental quality assessments, as well as with enforcement actions concerning hazardous materials.

We routinely represent aviation and non-aviation clients in cases arising from the shipment, transportation, storage, and manufacturing of hazardous materials. Our aviation lawyers also have been involved in airport environmental litigation. We have defended aviation companies facing penalties under the California Environmental Quality Act, and understand the often antagonistic interplay between aviation and environmental law.
