[GRAPHIC: Super Lawyers; Robert W. Finnerty rated by Super Lawyers; What kind of environmental law cases does Girardi / Keese handle?]

Robert Finnerty: Girardi Keese handles a wide variety of environmental cases. We handle cases involving air pollution, soil pollution, and water pollution. We see these cases not only from old oil refineries or old oil pumping areas or present refineries of different types of materials and we can’t rely upon our local regulators any longer to protect the people, and so law firms, such as Girardi Keese, or other law firms who have dedicated a great number of hours, individuals, and money to fight these things are really important.

One of the types of cases that Girardi Keese is pursuing at the present time is an entire housing community, which was built on an old oil tank farm shell many years ago, had a tank farm. These tanks are huge. Two-hundred and forty-six homes were built right above these tanks at the present time. Shell decided that the property wasn’t pumping enough oil, so they sold the property to a developer. Lo and behold, the developer knocked down the tanks, put a little bit of soil out there and then built 246 homes. So now, many years later, these people have oil migrating to the surface, migrating into their homes, the vapors which are harmful, as well as soil being contaminated to the point where the local water board has told these families their children cannot play in the soil in their backyard.
