When You Need a Lawyer who Will Fight for You

Landfill Contamination Lawyers

Modern construction of landfills requires that the waste be contained by liners that prevent dangerous chemicals from leaking into the soil and groundwater. This was not always the case, however, and the problems that this hazardous waste can cause — cancer-causing groundwater and soil contamination and vapor intrusion — can take decades to reveal themselves.

At The Collins Law Firm in Naperville, Illinois, our attorneys fight on behalf of families throughout the country who are suffering due to landfill contamination. Contact us and arrange a free initial consultation today.

Let Our Lawyers Fight for You When Landfill Contamination Endangers Your Life

If you live by an old landfill, there is a good chance it does not contain proper environmental safeguards. The effects of chemical dumping that occurred years ago could just be starting to become apparent.

When you learn the news that a nearby landfill has been making you and your family sick and drastically devaluing your home, it is important to realize that you have options. Where state and federal governments fail to enforce environmental laws, we use those laws to help you pursue compensation and cleanup your neighborhood.

With us in your corner, you will not have to face this fight alone. Our attorneys have experience with bringing multiple families together to craft strong class action lawsuits that hold corporations accountable for their reckless actions. That experience is why clients put their trust in us and that is why we have been able to recover more than $100 million on their behalf.

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.

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.

He has a great team of lawyers working with him. M.F.
