Attorney Desautel Nominated as Top Environmental Lawyer

Desautel Law’s Managing Attorney Marisa Desautel was recently nominated by fellow Rhode Island attorneys for Professional Excellence in Law in the June edition of Rhode Island Monthly magazine, as an environmental lawyer.

This distinction is the result of a voting process by only licensed Rhode Island attorneys in the state. Marisa was selected for professional excellence in “Environmental and Land Use” as an environmental lawyer who “exemplif[ies] the leading local lawyers and attorneys in their respective areas of practice…”

Marisa has been practicing as an environmental lawyer in Rhode Island and Massachusetts since 2006, and has an additional 16 years of experience as an environmental and regulatory professional throughout New England. Desautel Law provides legal representation for state and federal environmental and utility/energy statutory and regulatory compliance, civil litigation, and municipal and regulatory zoning and permitting.

Environmental lawyers practice in areas of state and federal law and regulation, including litigation, permitting, and enforcement. In Rhode Island, environmental lawyers practice before the Department of Environmental Management and/or the Coastal Resources Management Council. These two agencies operate under two different statutory and regulatory schemes – Marisa has decades of experience with them.

Hiring a skilled environmental lawyer is necessary if you or your business is dealing with any type of environmental matter. Environmental law is convoluted; it requires the skill of a talented civil litigator as well as the knowledge base of a studied environmental lawyer. The environmental litigation team at Desautel Law includes attorneys with advanced degrees in environmental science and experience working as environmental scientists, as well as experience with both civil and environmental litigation.

The lawyers at Desautel Law have the experience and confidence to fight for your interests in the context of an environmental matter. We know the relevant law, regulation, and process.
