Everglades Law Center, Inc.

Executive Director/General Counsel

(954) 262-6140
The ELULC is a non-profit law firm dedicated to representing the public interest in environmental and land use matters. We use advocacy, negotiation and litigation to protect and restore South Florida’s environment. It is also our mission to increase the availability of legal representation to citizens and organizations working to protect our environment who cannot otherwise secure competent legal representation. We believe that public policy will not truly effectuate the public interest unless and until persons representing the public interest have meaningful access to lawyers. The lack of available legal representation on the side of the environment is the single greatest reason for the dramatic decline of our most precious resources.
