McMath Woods P.A. has been a pioneer in protecting Arkansans, their property and their natural resources from pollution. Our ﬁrm ﬁrst became involved with environmental litigation in the 1970s when we represented the neighbors of the Vertac facility in Jacksonville, Arkansas, which made herbicides during the Vietnam War.
- Over the past three decades our ﬁrm has represented numerous individuals or entire communities (sometimes hundreds of households) in complex litigation involving air pollution, groundwater pollution and toxic exposures.
- Today, two ﬁrm members focus heavily upon environmental litigation.
- McMath Woods is involved in a broad spectrum of environmental litigation, including industrial pollution, groundwater pollution from underground storage tanks, oilﬁeld waste, pesticide drift, toxic mold, as well as claims against federal and state governmental agencies that have not fulﬁlled mandates to protect the environment.
- The ﬁrm’s clients include not only residents of aﬀected communities, but also landowners and small businesses adversely impacted by pollution, government bodies with environmental concerns and conservation organizations.
Environmental litigation requires experience in the complex web of environmental regulation, familiarity with technical aspects of each case. McMath Woods is proud to be one of the few plaintiﬀs ﬁrms in the South focusing on this area of practice.
