Texas Environmental Law Firm Gaining Attention for Creative Legal Service

Houston (March 23, 2016) – The AL Law Group attorneys have been attracting attention recently for a specialized slate of affordable environmental legal services customized for client needs. Yet, recognition is not new for the firm’s five principal partners who have all achieved legal acclaim.

As former partners and attorneys with Vinson & Elkins, Baker Botts, Bracewell, and Kelly Hart, AL Law Group’s attorneys have more than 140 years of big law firm experience. They have been listed in Who’s Who in American Law and in “Super Lawyers”, as Texas Rising Stars in Texas Monthly, Lawyers on the Fast Track with H Texas magazine and been profiled in Chambers. They also have appeared on countless lists, such as the Legal 500 U.S., Top 50 Central & West Texas Super Lawyers and Top 50 Female Super Lawyers.

Commensurate with the rankings, AL Law Group attorneys can check off distinguished service as Texas Supreme Court briefing attorney, U.S. 5th Circuit Court Clerk, and Adjunct Professor at University of Houston Law School.

“This wide range of background and experience combined with  low-cost legal fees have prepared the AL Law Group attorneys to offer unique legal solutions that other firms cannot match,” said Jed Anderson, a principal attorney with AL Law. “We can deliver our clients benefits through our knowledge and experience, our relationships, and our ability to find creative legal solutions that add value and decrease liability.”

Anderson acknowledged that the group’s legal skills and deep knowledge of state and federal regulation helps AL Law navigate clients through the growingly complex and increasingly ambiguous morass of ever-changing environmental regulations.  This has led to AL Law Group’s creation of a proprietary slate of environmental legal services which has been attracting attention and resulting in calls, meetings and presentations.

The Agency Submittal Legal Review Service (ASLER) is a legal environmental review system to reduce company costs and legal liabilities in agency submissions. The AL Law Group reviews permit document submissions, deviation reports, agency letters, and all other forms of agency submissions that could create legal liability and cost to companies.

The Over-Compliance Environmental Legal Assessment Service (OCELA) is an innovative tool to help companies improve environmental performance while reducing unnecessary costs. The tool also helps decrease potential liabilities created through over-compliance.  AL Law Group evaluates commonly occurring over-compliance situations the law firm has detected through years of legal practice. Examples of commonly found over-compliance situations include unnecessary permit conditions; misinterpretation of rules, permit conditions and/or guidance documents; and over-monitoring of permit parameters.

“Working with environmental technical partners inside and outside of companies, the AL Law Group has helped clients save hundreds of thousands of dollars,” said Anderson. “One leading Texas environmental consultant testified, ‘An AL Law Group attorney helped me save my client over $500,000 in what otherwise would have been an unnecessary facility change.’” 

Anderson added that the highly acclaimed, dedicated environmental law firm puts its expertise to work for its clients. “AL Law Group helps save clients money and reduce liability.  In turn, clients can reinvest in more productive environmental protection efforts.  It’s been a win-win-win,” he said.

In the next several months, AL Law Group will unveil two new legal services: an “in-house” legal service program that helps clients augment and deal with reductions in the legal workforce during this economic downturn and a specialty permitting service designed to help expedite environmental authorizations.
