Michael Murphy, Jennifer Martin, and Alec Messina will be the featured speakers at an upcoming environmental hot topics webinar. Topics to be discussed include Illinois environmental legislation and regulations (including Omnibus Energy and revisions to TACO and Illinois groundwater standards), proposed federal PFAS legislation, and environmental justice. This free webinar, which is sponsored by Three Rivers Manufacturer’s Association, will be held July 29. Registration is available here.

All three attorneys are partners in the firm’s Springfield office and focus their practices on various aspects of environmental law. Murphy is an experienced litigator who defends clients in state-initiated enforcement actions and citizen lawsuits claiming injuries from environmental contamination. He has been named both an Emerging Lawyer by Illinois Leading Lawyers and an Illinois Super Lawyer by Thomson Reuters. Martin has been named an Illinois Leading Lawyer by Law Bulletin Media and speaks and writes regularly on environmental law. Prior to entering private practice, she was an Assistant Attorney General in the Environmental Control Division of the Illinois Attorney General’s Office. In addition to his environmental law practice, Messina  spearheads the firm’s Government Affairs practice area. Prior to joining HeplerBroom, he served as Director of the Illinois EPA and was previously the Illinois Governor’s Policy Adviser on Energy and Environment.

HeplerBroom is pleased to announce that its physical offices have reopened. While the health and safety of our clients, employees, and families, remain our top priority, HeplerBroom attorneys and staff are returning to our offices on full-time or modified schedules. Our offices are open to visitors and clients with scheduled appointments, with appropriate screening of visitors and social-distancing protocols. HeplerBroom will continue to follow CDC recommendations for cleaning and sanitizing.

We are very proud of the dedicated efforts of our attorneys and staff to provide great service and work product to our clients during the pandemic. This would not have been possible without the incredible support provided by the HeplerBroom IT Department and other essential personnel who supported our personnel and clients from the office locations while the rest of our teams worked remotely.

If you have questions about visiting our offices, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to seeing you in person again in the near future.
