When You Need a Lawyer who Will Fight for You

TCE & PCE Contamination

By the time the federal government started heavily regulating the dangerous chemicals TCE and PCE in the 1980s, these cancer-causing chemicals were already making their way into our soil and groundwater supplies, and making countless people sick. Even though there are tough laws on the books now, the government's enforcement efforts are often ineffective.

Our lawyers at The Collins Law Firm, however, can use these laws to fight on your behalf. From our law firm in Naperville, Illinois, our lawyers represent the victims of TCE and PCE contamination throughout the country.

We have recovered millions on behalf of our environmental litigation clients, and successfully fought to make their neighborhoods safe places to live and raise children again. Contact us to continue the fight. We can help you when you have been harmed by contamination.

A Problem That has Been Decades in the Making

Sadly, the illegal dumping of the industrial solvents like TCE and PCE has been going on for decades. Corporations spent the 1930s, 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s dumping these chemicals. The legacy created by this illegal dumping is the endangerment of health and property values.

Besides ending up in our soil and groundwater, these chemicals can also seep into buildings in vapor form. These chemicals have been found to cause health problems such as:

  • Liver cancer
  • Kidney cancer
  • Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma
  • Nervous system damage
  • Impaired fetal development
  • Immune system damage

When faced with these devastating threats, it is important to work with attorneys who know how to get the best results for their clients. We will not just stop at getting you compensation. We will fight to make corporations clean up the air you breathe, the water you drink and the soil you build your home on.

Contact The Collins Law Firm as soon as possible at (630) 527-1595 (dial extension 221 for Shawn Collins or 226 for Edward Manzke) if your family members are the victims of PCE and TCE contamination due to illegal disposal by a reckless corporation. We are ready to fight on your 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. 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.
