Gregory A. Cade - Shareholder
Gregory A. Cade had the vision to form a national trial firm that litigates multi-plaintiff environmental cases throughout the United States. Greg is no stranger to the legal environmental community. Much of his understanding of worker and community exposure to toxic substances began several years ago while working as an industrial hygienist for the Environmental Litigation Group, P.C. An overwhelming understanding of the principles of toxic torts, quantitative analysis, and environmental law clearly carved a career for Greg in an area that is often avoided because of its complexity, time consumption, and financial risk.
Greg's dedication and greatest motivation is renewed every day while working with clients who have been negligently or intentionally victimized by unforgiving contaminants released into the environment and/or workplace.
Greg's overall success is based on simple principles that have brought satisfaction and legal stability at a fairly young age:
- Listen to the client
- Understand the laws and science that govern the case.
These philosophical principles have prompted several successful ventures as independent counsel and co-counsel involving worker and community exposures all over the Southeast.
Greg is currently handling thousands of individual and community claims. These stem from injuries due to exposure to creosote, coke emissions, benzene, dioxins, PAHs, PCBs, and other known toxicants.
