San Diego Environmental Law Lawyers

California Groundwater Contamination Lawyers

At Campbell, Lauter & Murphy, Attorneys at Law, we are aggressive litigators of environmental issues and toxic torts. Our knowledge and experience handling environmental concerns, including compliance with water, land and air requirements, is lengthy and impressive.

Our San Diego law firm represents individuals, small businesses, large corporations, developers, subcontractors, water companies and utilities bringing lawsuits against government entities including the California Public Utilities Commission. We also defend these clients against litigation related to allegations of pollution. We have resolved liability disputes among multiple parties as a part of our practice.

From cases involving the inhalation of cancer-causing pesticides, benzene, asbestos and mold to deadly exposure to chemicals through the air, drinking water or in the earth, our principle attorney, William (Bill) Koska, has represented clients both as plaintiffs and defendants in certain types of litigation. He is equally comfortable on either side of the counsel table, whether representing an individual, small business or large corporation.

We have handled matters involving CERCLA (Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act), CEQA (California Environmental Quality Act), Clean Air Act, Proposition 65, the California Public Utilities Commission, federal and state safe drinking water laws, mold, and air quality issues for a variety of clients, both large and small.

Focused on high-quality representation in complex and sophisticated environmental law matters, we have the capacity to work closely with our clients on a broad spectrum of matters:

Defense of Clean Air Act Violations

Our principle attorney, William K. (Bill) Koska, was part of the defense team in the case of State of North Carolina v. Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) (January 2009). This historic case involved claims by the State of North Carolina that emissions from TVA smoke stacks in three states were polluting the state of North Carolina as a result of wind currents in the southeastern United States. The allegations involved claims of nuisance and issues pertaining to the Clean Air Act.

Defense of Air Pollution Claims

In 1989 and 1990, Mr. Koska defended the Dial Corporation in a case brought by over 100 plaintiffs alleging that Dial's chlorine plant, along with several other industrial plants in the area, had caused multiple injuries and death to the surrounding residents. In less than a year of litigation, the cases were dismissed in favor of Mr. Koska's client.

Defense/Prosecution Regarding Air Pollution Claims

In 1986, Mr. Koska defended Dial Corporation in litigation filed on behalf of 100 plaintiffs who had inhaled chlorine fumes, following a chlorine tank explosion at the Dial plant. He settled with the plaintiffs for a very reasonable figure. Thereafter, he successfully prosecuted the responsible parties for Dial and recovered a seven figure settlement.
