Defend yourself against environmental crime claims in Louisiana

When you're accused of a crime, the most important thing is making sure those accusations affect your life as little as possible. You may be able to protect your reputation by "lawyering up" or by refusing to speak to police without a representative. Being accused of a crime doesn't mean you've committed it, so with the right defense team, you can make sure your accusation doesn't make the media spotlight.

Being accused of an environmental law violation may come as a surprise to you. There are several things that may have triggered the authorities' response. If you participated in any of these things or associated with those who did, then you could be charged with a crime. Some environmental crimes include the illegal dumping of toxic waste, falsifying documents or manifests about environmental procedures, improper storage of hazardous chemicals, improper oil field cleanup and others.

Sometimes, a spill isn't cleaned up correctly, but you did your best. Maybe your documents were tampered with or perhaps they simply weren't filled out correctly due to an accident or misunderstanding. These things happen, and you should have the chance to rectify the situation before you're accused of a crime you didn't intend to commit.

Whether you're facing charges for contaminating water supplies or are being accused of turning in falsified paperwork, you need someone on your side who can make sure you're defended properly.
