WE ARE WILLIAMS CUKER BEREZOFSKY
Since 1984 at the Forefront of Environmental Litigation
Williams Cuker Berezofsky is known for our relentless and successful battles on behalf of people exposed to toxic chemicals. For more than 25 years, we have represented individuals and communities who have suffered the serious –and all-too-often fatal –effects of noxious, polluted environments. Fracking and fracking-related accidents are presenting new problems that have the potential to affect homeowners and businesses.
“Environmental toxic dangers are routinely downplayed by the authorities or the perpetrating source–so communities need to be concerned–even skeptical– about what they’re told. And they need an advocate,” – Mark Cuker, Esq.
“It’s now commonplace, but we were among the first to really delve deeply into these matters, using experts and fashioning remedies that involved a lot of discovery, research, time and effort working directly with victims and communities. We were among the first to insist upon medical monitoring for environmental hazard victims,” – Jerry Williams, Esq.
Over 25 Years of Proven Success

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.

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.
