Shoreline, Marsh & Coastal Protection
Georgia’s Coastal Protection Attorneys: Serving Municipalities and Business in the Southeast
Experienced Representation for Individuals, Neighborhood Associations, Municipalities and Businesses
Georgia’s beautiful coastline, South Carolina’s lovely low country and Alabama’s gorgeous 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 areas are being rapidly developed. These communities will only remain ecologically stable and attractive for tourism if the environment is protected and the laws are followed.
As experienced environmental lawyers, based out of Atlanta and Savannah, Georgia, we realize that up and down the coastline, individuals are building second homes, subdivisions are underway and massive commercial developments are in the works. The population of the region is rapidly increasing, and the actual contours of the coastline are being changed due to dredging, filling, and other impacts on the marshes, beaches and natural buffers.
