California Attorneys Advise On Environment And Land Use

At Coast Law Group LLP, our attorneys have a passion for community service, and environmental protection is one of our hallmarks. Our lawyers provide private and nonprofit entities with policy, permit processing, and legislation services in environmental and land use matters before myriad local, state and federal agencies.

Additionally, our attorneys are known for aggressively pursuing litigation both state and federal courts at the trial and appellate court levels.

Our name rightly suggests a focus on coastal issues, yet our team’s experience extends to legal aspects of environmental concerns throughout the state. Our lawyers have delivered successful representation before (and have influence with) the California Coastal Commission, Regional Water Quality Control Board and California State Water Resources Control Board, as well as municipalities, counties and the state legislature.

Clients of all varieties representing a range of industries currently benefit from our attorneys’ extensive experience in publicly visible, environmentally sensitive matters. Our lawyers have the depth of knowledge by which they provide government agencies, responsible developers and die-hard environmentalists with quality advice on the application of complex environmental laws.
