Baltimore Mesothelioma Lawyer, is part of a boutique law firm that specializes in fighting for victims and their families who are suffering because of asbestos exposure. While we have other practice areas that we are proud of we feel that our work on asbestos cases is doing a broader good. When we win a case for one of our client’s we are also putting out a political message to manufacturers and politicians alike: We need to protect living things from dangerous environmental hazards.
We know that there are many different ways to protect the environment and its inhabitants- and that there are many different education paths that can lead to doing work to improve the environment for its inhabitants. We would like to support the education of a student who is committed to fighting for environmental justice. We appreciate the many different academic disciplines and their different approaches to environmental justice. We know that our global village needs us to support one another in our fight to keep our planet safe for living things.
