Environmental crimes cases have become common in recent years because of the proliferation of environmental activist groups. Laws have been tightened, penalties increased and the number of prosecutions stepped up. Environmental law has become one of the fastest growing areas of law.

Environmental crimes encompass a variety of waste disposal issues, air quality control violations, water contamination problems, and environmental and natural resources impact situations. A conviction can result in enormous fines, prison sentences and restitution. Depending upon the enormity of the case, a conviction could even force you out of business.
