Miami Environmental Crime & HAZMAT Violation Attorney
Skilled environmental attorneys representing Florida businesses facing investigations and criminal charges involving possible HAZMAT violations
The overlapping state and Federal laws and regulations governing the handling, transportation and disposal of hazardous materials (HAZMAT) are often ambiguous and confusing to business owners, leaving them vulnerable to accusations of committing environmental crimes. Unfortunately, ignorance of the law is no excuse.

With respect to HAZMAT violations, we believe that each case must be viewed in the context of being a criminal case. Many cases begin as civil or administrative matters and turn into criminal cases, usually in the federal system. Too many Florida corporations and business executives rely solely on corporate counsel for advice on HAZMAT issues. While these attorneys may well be fine business counsel, they will not necessarily appreciate the criminal implications of these types of cases. They often give advice resulting in clients incriminating themselves and criminal charges being filed.
At Jeffrey S. Weiner, P.A., our Miami environmental & HAZMAT attorneys work closely with business owners, corporate officers and corporate attorneys to carefully review procedures to ensure that they are in full compliance with regulatory requirements. An assessment by our attorneys can identify and correct potential violations before they result in costly and distracting litigation.
Wise corporate officers and civil attorneys often consult with our law firm before or after they are subpoenaed and before they talk with law enforcement agents.
