Environmental Crimes

Houston, Texas Environmental Crimes Lawyer

Crimes against the environment have been gaining increased visibility in recent years. State and federal prosecutors are keenly aware of the anxiety environmental groups create over perceived harm done to natural resources by corporations engaged in legitimate enterprises. Unfortunately, many executives and business owners get charged with breaking environmental laws that are poorly defined.

For nearly 20 years, the Law Firm of Bires Schaffer & DeBorde has been recognized as a Houston criminal defense firm, with federal and state environmental law trial experience. Our experienced trial attorneys understand the ways environmental laws are written regarding water pollution, air pollution and disposal of toxic waste. We are proud of our record of protecting the rights of people wrongfully charged with breaking laws that are vaguely interpreted by federal and state prosecutors.

We routinely handle federal, state, and local criminal defense matters involving:

  • Toxic waste disposal
