About Our Firm

The Nelson Law Group LLC was founded by Michael O. Nelson, who received his bachelor's degree from the University of California, San Diego, and his law degree from the University of California, San Francisco's Hastings College of the Law. While in school, Nelson worked for the San Diego District Attorney's office as a legal intern, researching civil and criminal environmental issues. After graduation and prior to opening his own firm, he was a shareholder and attorney with the national firm of Hunsucker Goodstein & Nelson PC.

Nelson and his staff represent clients with environmental law issues in a wide range of industries, including construction, dry cleaning, property management, development, foundries, manufacturing, metal working, gas stations, metals recycling, electrical contracting and oil distribution. He also works on behalf of local governments in Indiana, assisting them in investigating and remediating contaminated properties within their borders.

Our Goals And Operating Philosophy

At Nelson Law Group LLC, we work with clients, consultants and regulatory agencies to contain client liability and to obtain site closure in hazardous waste cases. Our firm has extensive experience providing legal counsel in:

  • Environmental regulatory compliance
  • Responses to federal and state notifications of liability
  • Air quality measures and regulations
  • Contaminated land cleanup litigation
  • Negotiating cost of professional services for containment and cleanup
  • Insurance coverage for environmental cleanup

We believe it is important to help small and medium-sized businesses, property owners and local governments respond to environmental contamination issues. We work directly with our clients and provide personal service delivered by an experienced environmental law attorney.

Another key element of our firm's philosophy is that entities facing an environmental cleanup are entitled to appropriate financial support from the insurance coverage for which they have paid. We provide in-depth representation in negotiations or litigation with insurers. This often helps our clients resolve their environmental liabilities efficiently and cost-effectively.
