Decided to make a blog of my legal activities - highlights of my significant cases and new services to be offered.  

Taking On Silica Dust Against the Big Guys

Nuisance and Toxic Trespass

Filed suit in Montgomery County, Texas for resident of Bennette Estates just outside of Conroe, Texas.  Homeowner with constant 18-wheelers driving by in and out of plant which mines and manufactures fracturing sand for the oil and gas production and silica utilized in packaging and glass. The byproduct of such production is silica dust which goes into the air out of the plant as well as off the covered and uncovered trucks transporting materials. Silica dust is a known carcinogen with similar medical conditions to tuberculosis.  Got it started and adding parties prior to pursuit of injunctive relief to reduce the traffic and emissions. One of biggest cases I have been in so far.  Stay tuned!
