When You Need a Lawyer who Will Fight for You

Environmental Litigation

Too many people throughout the United States are still needlessly being exposed to toxic chemicals like TCE, PCE, MTBE, PCB, VC, lead and arsenic because corporations are recklessly dumping them into our soil and water. This contamination can lead to cancers, birth defects, respiratory ailments, weakened immune systems and other serious illnesses. In addition to personal injuries, environmental contamination in soil, groundwater and air, or vapor intrusion will often times destroy the property values of people's homes.

At The Collins Law Firm, our lawyers have built a nationwide reputation for fighting for the victims of environmental contamination. Based in Naperville, Illinois, our team of experienced trial lawyers takes the fight to corporations, and works to help families by making their neighborhoods safe to live in again and getting them the compensation they deserve. Contact us for the legal support and assertive advocacy you need.

We Have Recovered Millions for Our Clients Through Class Action Lawsuits

One of the reasons why our attorneys have recovered more than $63 million in settlements and judgments is because of our deep understanding of the scientific issues at play when it comes to:

As a victim of environmental contamination, you have enough to worry about; you should not have to take up the fight for compensation alone. Our attorneys will take the time to address all of your questions and concerns, and always keep you up-to-date about the latest developments in your case. We have been through countless class action lawsuits regarding these toxic torts, and we know the strategies that corporations will use to try to slow your case down.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Shawn Collins is a very talented lawyer, as are all the attorneys on his team. I've known and worked with Shawn for more that 30 years. Not only is he a top notch technical litigator but his communication skills are second to none. If anyone I know is ever in need of an attorney, Shawn is my very first recommendation. He gives very solid advice that goes beyond the law. He is someone you can trust to tell you the truth so you are not lead astray in the complex legal world. You really can't find a better advocate. E.M.
★★★★★
We were incredibly satisfied with our experience with The Collins Law Firm. We worked closely with Ed Manzke and found that he had a personal touch and truly got to know us in addition to being knowledgeable and effective in his field. The caring and individual attitude helped us tremendously throughout the entire process and we always felt like our case was in safe hands. We would highly recommend The Collins Law Firm for both its stellar work and dedicated employees. M.A.
★★★★★
My father recommended The Collins Law Firm to me after watching Shawn Collins and Ed Manzke at trial representing Lisle residents against Lockformer. For years, he told us courtroom tales about Shawn and Ed, citing their incredible skill as trial lawyers and how they put the huge Lockformer legal team to shame. So when my son was the victim of a wrongful death, they were my first and only choice. I can't say enough to truly express how grateful I am to The Collin's Law Firm for all that they did for me and my family. This amazing team advocated for me in my darkest moments, surpassing my expectations in every way. I will be forever grateful to Shawn and Ed. K.D.
★★★★★
I have worked with Rob, Shawn and The Collins Law Firm team in connection with both complex business transactions and litigation over the past several years. Shawn is far and away the best business litigation attorney I have worked with. Rob has been our lead attorney on M&A and corporate restructures, and he has delivered each time, and on time. I would highly recommend Rob to get the deal done! W.D.

Rob has been our out-side General Counsel for ten years. As a business with a global presence, it is important that we have the very best legal representation. Rob and the team have guided us through litigation battles, negotiating and drafting our important business contracts, and advising us in our business strategies. He has a great team of lawyers working with him. M.F.
