Environmental protection is the responsibility of both Modesto businesses and Modesto citizens. When negligent actions harm the environment and people, we are ready to hold the powerful accountable.

Modesto Environmental Law Violations Come in Many Forms

Environmental law cases involve complex issues and require an experienced environmental law attorney who knows how local, regional and federal environmental regulations apply.

Modesto leads the way in enforcing laws to prevent harmful exposure to pollutants, toxins and greenhouse gases. We litigate cases for both individuals and groups doing their best to protect natural resources and communities. If you have questions about environmental violations, we are here to help. We support our clients and fight to get results that make a difference.

Modesto environmental law encompasses the following damages and exposures:

You have a right to breathe clean air and to know that your and your children’s futures are not in jeopardy due to illness from exposure to air pollutants or the harmful impacts of climate change. The federal Clean Air Act and the state’s Mulford-Carrell and Global Warming Solutions Acts are designed to protect citizens and the environment from the detrimental effects of air pollution and climate change.

Unfortunately, many polluting industries are concentrated where residents with limited resources live. We work with clients pursuing environmental justice cases against those businesses and industries that take advantage of disadvantaged communities and individuals to engage in harmful discharge practices that pose a danger to health and well-being.

Oil, chemicals and industrial waste pose significant risks to environmental and human health. When companies and individuals improperly handle, transport or dispose of these materials, it often results in soil, freshwater, ocean and air contamination, leading to loss of plant and animal life, natural resources and human health hazards. Matern Law Group is committed to fighting those practicing unsafe hazardous materials handling and dumping to hold them responsible for the damages they cause.

Matern Law Group is the firm you need to represent your environmental protection or hazards exposure case because we believe your rights matter. Contact us and tell us about the issue or incident.

California’s surface and groundwater sources are essential to the health and survival of the state’s ecosystems and citizens. Water pollution and contamination sources include agricultural runoff, industrial waste dumping and disposal, road runoff, groundwater injections, and pumping, underground waste storage leaching, and chemical and oil spills. Contamination can lead to hazardous environmental conditions for plant and animal survival. When people drink water with unsafe levels of toxins such as arsenic, benzene, chromium and cadmium, it can have serious health implications.

The federal Clean Water Act and Safe Drinking Water Act protect surface and groundwater sources from contamination and pollution. All living things have a right to clean water, and we seek to hold those who violate the laws governing water quality accountable for their actions.
