We Can Help You Overcome The Toxic Legacy Of Dry Cleaners’ Pollution Claims

Legal issues can put financial strain on your business

As a dry cleaner or property owner leasing to a dry cleaning company in California, you face tough environmental liability issues. Cleaning solvents such as perchloroethylene (PCE /PERC) and trichloroethylene (TCE) are heavily regulated. Lawsuits related to spills, contamination, pollution and exposure have been common for decades. Obtaining legal advice is the most effective way to prevent and resolve these problems, and protect your business.

At Caufield & James, L.L.P., we can help you address and avoid environmental issues related to dry cleaning. With advanced degrees in environmental science, our attorneys understand the science behind dry cleaning cases. Since so many environmental issues really revolve around science, being able to work with the experts and consultants – and putting it into laymen's speech – is the key to your success in tough environmental law cases.
