Environmental Crimes

Conaway & Strickler, P.C., is a highly qualified law firm with nationally recognized federal criminal defense attorneys who are dedicated to providing comprehensive defense against environmental crimes charges. Such cases can be long and arduous, and we are here to assist you every step of the way, from investigation to indictment to trial, if necessary.

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.

Atlanta Environmental Crimes Attorneys

If you or your company is charged with an environmental crime, many different parties can become involved, including federal agencies like the Department of Environmental Protection or the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. In addition, the case will be prosecuted by experienced, competent prosecutors from the U.S. Justice Department with the vast resources of the federal government at their disposal.

We level the playing field in a number of ways. For one, we offer highly experienced defense attorneys who know the law as well as their prosecutorial counterparts. We conduct a thorough independent investigation of your case and present our own highly credentialed expert witnesses. We also have nearly 50 years of combined experience at every level of the court system.

For us, the ideal scenario is to have the charges against you dismissed with no damage to your record whatsoever. Short of that, we make every attempt to win an acquittal at trial or to reduce the impact of any penalties.

Our family wants to thank Conaway and Strickler for their professional and hard work in this case. We never thought this nightmare was going to be over so soon. With receiving a No Bill from the Grand Jury, my employer has given me my job back. This has been by far a true miracle. The R. Family
