Environmental Expert Testimony
CEC provides litigation support for individuals and the business community in
a full range of environmental and toxic tort situations where the United States
government is a not party and does not have a substantial interest.
We provide technical analysis and strategies for case development, including
gathering of additional environmental data. We also provide environmental
expert advice and testimony with cases involving adverse human health and
ecological effects from a range of toxic chemicals, including pesticides, lead,
arsenic, mercury, asbestos, and PCBs.
Depending upon client preferences and particular cases, analyses can be
prepared as University of Illinois School of Public Health work products.
