From the Earthjustice website:
True and lasting change happens when the power of the law is on your side.
That is why the earth needs a good lawyer.
As expert legal strategists, we take on the big environmental fights—high-stakes cases where we can have an enduring impact—and stick with them until we win.
- HIGH STAKES: Will something significant be lost or gained?
- LANDMARK IMPACT: Will a positive ruling set a powerful precedent for other cases and help set national policy across the country?
- STRONG PARTNERSHIPS: Will the lawsuit help build strong, lasting partnerships with diverse local and/or national groups?
- UNIQUE EXPERTISE: Can Earthjustice leverage its expertise and resources to add value to a case in a unique way?
With more than a hundred attorneys in offices across the country, Earthjustice pursues three key goals to secure a just, flourishing world:
Our nation’s laws protect the magnificent natural spaces and wildlife we have inherited from previous generations. Earthjustice enforces those laws to protect what we know to be irreplaceable wildlife and wild places, for this and future generations.
We fight for a future where children can breathe clean air, no matter where they live; where products in our homes are free of toxic chemicals; and where all communities are safer, healthier places to live and work.
