Environmental & Toxic Tort

Environmental law is arguably one of the most complex areas of modern legal practice. There are courts and administrative proceedings at the local, state and federal levels, with overlapping legal and regulatory jurisdictions. The science underlying the legal issues is both technically difficult and rapidly changing, placing extraordinary demands on legal professionals.

Fortunately, our environmental and toxic tort attorneys have both the credentials and the experience to master the scientific and legal challenges in these cases. The firm has built an outstanding record of aggressively defending these cases, including toxic torts, mold claims, chemical exposures, the Oil Pollution Act, and every level of regulatory compliance. Our attorneys have helped clients with emergency response phases of cases, helping clients to properly investigate accidents immediately. We also have been fortunate to accumulate a number of notable and precedent-setting verdicts on behalf of our clients.

GJTBS commits to the Louisiana State Bar Association’s Diversity Pledge
GJTBS is proud to support the LSBA’s Diversity Statement of Principles and make the following commitment:

Those signing this Statement of Principles hereby commit themselves to foster diversity in the legal profession. The LSBA recognizes that diversity is an inclusive concept that encompasses race, color, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, national origin, disability and other aspects of diversity.

We believe that with greater diversity, we can be more creative, effective and bring more varied perspectives, experiences, backgrounds, talents and interest to the practice of law and the administration of justice. We further believe that a diverse group of talented legal professionals is critically important to the success of every law firm, corporate or government legal department, law school and public service organization and every other organization that includes attorneys.

We recognize that to fully and equitably pursue justice, our profession must reflect the full spectrum of our communities. To this end, we pledge to make our best efforts to increase the diversity in our hiring, retention and promotion of attorneys and the elevation of attorneys to leadership positions within our respective organizations. We believe that all members of the bar should participate equally and fully in our profession. Ultimately, we believe that diversity, in the legal profession is good for the profession, good for business, good for our communities and critical for enhancing the public’s confidence in the judicial system.

We recognize that achieving diversity within our organizations and creating inclusive environments are evolutionary processes that require a continued effort and commitment on our part. We pledge to promote and participate in appropriate diversity awareness training programs. We further agree to participate in programs to measure our progress in the pursuit of these stated principles.
