Oil & Gas/Energy Law The Brod Law Firm has experience in many issues related to the oil & gas industry, as well as energy, environmental, land use and regulatory issues.

Gregory Brod has successfully resolved many oil & gas related disputes, and has litigated and tried numerous cases involving the oil & gas industry in the State of California.

Oil & Gas/Energy Law Oil and natural gas are valuable resources, and our society depends upon maximizing those resources within America's borders. Occasionally, however, the rights and even health of American citizens can be affected in the attempt to acquire these natural resources, and litigation becomes necessary. The Brod Law Firm is currently accepting clients for class action lawsuits related to clean water and water contamination caused by the use of MTBE in gasoline, as well as water contamination caused by what is known as "fracking". MTBE contamination may occur if a drinking water supply has been exposed to a gasoline storage tank, which can affect the groundwater, and can be discovered by water that tastes or smells unpleasant. "Fracking" is a term that is used in oil and gas exploration where subsurface rocks are fractured in an attempt to release natural gas via a hydraulic fracture, which involves pumping water into the rock formation. Chemicals are also used in the fracking process, which can add to the environmental concerns when toxins are released into an underground water supply.

If you or someone you care about has been affected by a toxic tort relating to oil, gasoline, or natural gas, please contact the Brod Law Firm for a free initial consultation.
