Environmental crimes include illegal dumping of waste, taking protected trees, using unapproved septic systems, allowing excessive emissions seepage. Environmental criminal cases are unique from other types of cases and you will need Washington Environmental Criminal Defense Attorney who is experienced in this specific type of case. These cases are typically investigated and brought by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and tend to fall under certain Acts. These include the Clean Water Act, the Clean Air Act, the Resource and Conservation Act, the Federal Insecticide and Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). These are complicated laws and to successfully defend against these cases, you’ll need an attorney with years of experience. The good news is we have that experience and want to help you achieve the best result possible.

These cases are typically brought in federal court. Federal court is much different from state court and if you are in federal court, you need an attorney who understands the ins-and-outs of federal court.
