In addition to working with clients on personal injuries, workplace injuries, defective products, and other issues, we also handle cases outside the norm. For instance, we have experience with environmental claims and whistleblower issues. Let us give you a voice in these areas too.
In Texas and throughout the United States, negligence on the part of oil and gas companies has caused environmental catastrophes resulting in serious damage to property. Although there are federal and state environmental laws in place that are meant to protect people and property, these rules are all too often ignored. At The Callahan Law Firm, we represent property owners who have sustained significant property damage due to negligent and sometimes intentional conduct in environmental cases. We have a proven record of success obtaining favorable verdicts and settlements for our clients, including multimillion-dollar awards.
Clean, uncontaminated water and water rights are extremely valuable throughout Texas and other western states.

Brown, understand land contamination issues.
Oil and gas, chemical, petrochemical, and related companies contribute greatly to the Texas and United States economies.
