Georgia, South Carolina and Alabama Coastal Protection Lawyers
Georgia's beautiful coastline, South Carolina's equally lovely low country and Alabama's gulf shore area are home to some of the oldest communities in the country. The region is a national treasure. Until recently, it could be fairly described as "a hidden jewel." Not any longer. The Georgia-South Carolina coastline and the gulf coast area's are under siege.
Up and down the coastline people are building second homes and developers are creating huge subdivisions. The population of the region is expected to double by 2020, and the actual contours of the coastline are being changed. Some say the region is at risk of becoming the "new" New Orleans due to the destruction of the region's ecosystem brought about by the dredging and filling of marshes.
