(PRWEB) April 01, 2016
Morgan & Morgan is proud to announce that famed environmental attorneys Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Kevin J. Madonna of Kennedy & Madonna, LLP will now be of counsel to the firm.
This partnership stems from the two firms’ successful collaboration on the case against SoCalGas Company following the Aliso Canyon gas well blowout in California.
Morgan & Morgan is committed to holding companies accountable when negligence results in devastating environmental consequences. In addition to the firm’s work on behalf of Porter Ranch residents who suffered as a result of the gas well blowout, Morgan & Morgan previously, and successfully, took on BP after the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
Morgan & Morgan is honored to continue to work closely with these premier environmental litigators who have dedicated their careers to protecting the environment and communities affected by pollution.
John Morgan, who founded Morgan & Morgan in 1988, praised both men for their lifelong work protecting the environment and their instrumental role in the fight on behalf of Porter Ranch residents.
“We are now representing almost 3000 homeowners and the occupants of those homes,” said Morgan. Kennedy and Madonna were “instrumental,” he continued, as they share a “passion for the environment and civil justice.”
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has long been a staunch advocate for the environment. His role in helping Riverkeeper fight to restore the Hudson River earned him a spot on Time Magazine’s “Heroes of the Planet” list. Mr. Kennedy also played a key role in negotiating the New York City watershed agreement, which is regarded as an international model for deals of its kind.
Aside from being a world famous environmental lawyer, Mr. Kennedy is also a prolific author. He has published several political books, as well as three children’s books and has had articles published in many of the country’s most notable newspapers and magazines.
Kevin J. Madonna has served as the Executive Director of the Waterkeeper Alliance, and worked with organizations like the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the United Nations Environment Programme, and the United States Environmental Protection Agency, to name a few.
Morgan & Morgan looks forward to working closely with Kennedy and Madonna in the ongoing battle to protect the environment from corporate greed and carelessness.
