Traits that Set Us Apart

Cost Effective

ELN maintains low overhead and uses technology wisely. Our personnel and rates are structured to benefit the client. Bills cover only focused, client-centered and productive efforts—no “nickel and diming” for minor expenses. There are no costs of unproductive partners embedded in our rates. Clients are not billed for associate development nor do we assign work to inexperienced attorneys with high billable hour requirements. We often include technical and scientific experts as part of your team as a means to keep your legal costs to a minimum.

Problem Solvers

ELN focuses on producing the desired result quickly, efficiently and creatively.


We create adaptive and novel solutions. We emphasize and encourage preventative environmental compliance measures. We understand environmental laws and regulations as well as the legal process. Our experience is that with proper legal supervision, qualified experts can address environmental problems as well as or better than many law firm associates or paralegals.


Doug Morrison has 30 years of experience which provides depth of knowledge to benefit the client.


We communicate clearly and concisely with minimal legalese.

Loyal to Clients

ELN takes only those cases and engages only in those activities that are consistent with our current client’s interests. ELN promises an honest evaluation of our capabilities. We will refer clients to other attorneys or professionals if that is in the best interests of the client.


We pursue client’s objectives and interests regardless of our own views and interests. We act aggressively when necessary and appropriate.


ELN targets work towards our client’s needs. We return calls and emails promptly.

These are the core values that influence our practice of environmental law.
