Hartline Dacus Barger Dreyer LLP, a Texas-based law firm specializing in civil litigation and trials, is pleased to announce the addition of Victor Cardenas Jr. to the firm's Houston office.
Mr. Cardenas joins Hartline Dacus Barger Dreyer LLP after more than 8 years with Jackson Gilmour & Dobbs, PC in Houston, Texas where he was a founding member and shareholder.

Mr. Cardenas represents public entities, transportation companies and commercial businesses in complex matters involving environmental claims in matters arising under virtually every major federal environmental statute, particularly including the Clean Water Act (“CWA”) and the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (“CERCLA”), in jurisdictions from coast-to-coast. He has extensive experience in Superfund and hazardous substance sites, including negotiation of consent decrees, agreed orders, and settlements, cost-recovery and contribution actions, contaminated property damage and devaluation claims, NRD assessment and litigation, third-party and citizen suits, and other matters relating to contamination or impaired real property. He has also represented commercial landowners in enforcement and administrative proceedings concerning the release and migration of hazardous materials in all environmental media, and coordinated remedial process among various stake-holders.
Mr. Cardenas also advises international and domestic midsize energy, industrial, and transportation sector clients manage their environmental risk through appropriate environmental indemnity clauses, environmental due diligence, and regulatory compliance in cross-border transactions.
