Williams Cuker Berezofsky is considered one of the foremost environmental litigation law firms in the United States.
Since 1985, the firm has been committed to protecting personal, civil, consumer and worker rights. Led by name partners Mark Cuker, Esther Berezofsky and Gerald Williams, their team of twelve attorneys are nationally renowned for representing victims of precedent-setting environmental hazard cases.
The firm’s high- profile toxic tort cases have been the subject of books, television news, feature programs and documentaries and discussed at seminars and conferences.
Current and recent cases include representing citizens and first responders affected by environmental contamination and injury following the 2012 Paulsboro, NJ train derailment and the Toms River, New Jersey “cancer cluster,” as well as representing hundreds of property owners in Endicott, New York in claims that a former IBM manufacturing facility was the source of toxic vapor intrusion into their homes. The Pulitzer prize-winning book “Toms River: A Story of Science and Salvation” by Dan Fagin (2014) recounts the firm’s work to bring the matter to a successful resolution for residents.
The firm represents clients individually and in class actions and mass torts, regionally and across the country in federal and appellate and state Supreme Courts.
Williams Cuker Berezofsky is also distinguished for writing and submitting numerous, complex amicus curiae briefs to the U.S. Supreme Court.
