She has experience with the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA); the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA); and California’s Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and routinely assists clients in navigating the interaction between state and federal laws in these areas.
