More and more often, we hear of the horrible environmental damage done to our planet by companies trying to take shortcuts or failing to look at the long-term effects of what they do. As part of the ecosystem, people are hurt by these mistakes just as badly as the environment that surrounds them.
Standing Up To Corporate Polluters On Behalf Of Those They Harm
At Vititoe Law Group, we stand up for those people and the planet we all live on. Along with Erin Brockovich, our founder, James W. Vititoe, was part of the landmark water contamination case against Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Jim's original firm represented many clients in Hinkley, California, who were suffering from cancer caused by their groundwater being polluted with chromium VI (also known as hexavalent chromium). Our firm was made famous by the movie about this case, Erin Brockovich, and we continue to work with Erin on environmental law cases to this day.
We have become one of the leading law firms litigating environmental issues, chemical contamination, water contamination and toxic torts. Typically people contact us about cases involving the following:
- Hexavalent chromium (chromium VI)
- Trichloroethylene (TCE)
- Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs)
- Chemical spills
- Asbestos exposure
- Chemical exposure
- Lead poisoning
- Methyl tribenzene (MTBE)
- Arsenic poisoning
We have become a loud voice in the environmental arena. Our California environmental law attorneys work closely with communities facing illnesses caused by contamination to rectify the problems. We consult with leading doctors, scientists, engineers and other experts to show how these communities have been harmed by the environmental disasters caused by the negligent corporations that caused them.
Our law firm cares about the protection of human health as well as the preservation of our environment and the creatures that inhabit it with us. We are proud to have the opportunity to make a difference in our world and will continue to do so.
