With three decades of experience as an environmental advocate for clients and training as a chemical engineer, John resolves environmental disputes by blending sound scientific positions with practical legal guidance. He has used this pragmatic, fact-driven approach to negotiate and, when necessary, litigate on behalf of companies in the electronics, petroleum, metals, and manufacturing sectors in matters ranging from litigation of natural resource damage claims to settlement of substantial bankruptcy claims to negotiation of federal air emission standards. Because he understands the language of environmental scientists, John is able to advocate for reasonable, risk-based outcomes to environmental challenges.
