Environmental crimes: Defending yourself in Louisiana

Have you been accused of a Louisiana environmental crime such as dumping trash into a lake? These kinds of charges can get you into a lot of trouble with the government as well as with local and national environment protection agencies. You may not have done anything wrong, but if the media gets a hold of the story, your reputation could be on the line. It's important to seek a defense immediately, or something that is a small misunderstanding could be blown up into major news.

It's important that you're not fined or reprimanded for situations that aren't your fault. If you've been accused of environmental violations like illegal toxic waste dumping, groundwater intrusion issues, the improper storage of hazardous chemicals, transporting hazardous materials improperly or improperly cleaning up an oil field, you need to know that you have someone on your side willing to get the entire story.

Environmental crimes are viewed harshly by law enforcement. Leaking false information about your company dumping toxic chemicals or using improper containment procedures could put your business at risk. Don't let the media get a hold of you without the right defense; you're innocent until proven otherwise, not the other way around.

Whether you're being charged with fraud for falsifying documents or you're being accused of dumping sludge into clean drinking water, you have the right to defend yourself and to speak out without your reputation coming under fire. If you want to learn more about how you can defend yourself in and out of court for state or federal charges, please visit our white collar crime webpage. This is one situation you don't need to face alone.
