Also, our oil and gas attorneys are dedicated to assisting clients who are still dealing with the aftermath of the BP oil spill. Even though the Deepwater Horizon oil spill was over five years ago, there are many who are still dealing with the consequences of this disaster. Workers who were involved in the clean-up or who were present at the time of the incident are still suffering from adverse health effects from the chemicals used in the Gulf spill cleanup. Other people suffered financially because the spill affected their business.Even though there are billions of dollars set aside to compensate those who file a claim, this process can be slow, frustrating, and complicated. For this reason, many of our clients have benefited from having strong legal representative on their side when presenting their BP claim. Our BP claim attorneys have stayed up to date with the changes in the settlement process and are committed to helping secure you justice.

James Amaro, was in his senior year of the University of Texas at Austin chemical engineering program before deciding to become an attorney.
