Environmental Law

The attorneys of Vose Law Firm have represented public and private clients with regard to environmental matters in conjunction with governmental representation and private real estate practice. The firm was hired by Orange County as its outside counsel for environmental litigation.  In that capacity, the firm represented the county as to numerous environmental lawsuits, including one relating to contamination resulting from a solid waste disposal site, and another relating to ground water contamination due to petroleum contamination.

The firm was counsel to the Green Swamp Land Authority, which representation included extensive dealings with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, the Department of Community Affairs, and two water management districts. While an Assistant City Attorney for Orlando, Ms. Vose worked on the permitting for the Iron Bridge Road Sewage Treatment Plant and for various drainage and other public works projects.  As the City Attorney for Longwood, the firm represented the City in matters relating to a RCRA site on City property and was responsible for negotiations with the Florida Department of Environmental Regulation, [now the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP)], and for matters relating to negotiations with the environmental company hired to evaluate the clean-up of the property.

While City Attorney for Deltona, the attorneys of the Vose Law Firm successfully represented that city in environmental litigation regarding stormwater management issues and a claim for inverse condemnation relating to those issues.  That case was based upon a situation where the City of Deltona adjusted water control facilities to flood vacant land outside the city to protect populated areas in the city during flood conditions.  When the Vose Law Firm was hired to represent Deltona the litigation over the issue had been going on for over six years.  The attorneys of the Vose Law Firm immediately analyzed the issues, recommended and got the City Commission to authorize an offer of judgment, then set the case for trial.  Trial ensued with the city being completely vindicated and the court finding that the City of Deltona was not liable to the property owner.

In private practice, the attorneys of Vose Law Firm have been extensively involved in the permitting of various environmental features to private developments and have also represented numerous property owners in negotiations with the FDEP and in litigation over environmental contamination issues.

Ms. Vose co-authored the book, Environmental Survival Kit for Realty Professionals, a book designed to protect realty professionals from losses due to environmental problems. The Florida Board of Realtors purchased the rights to such publication for purposes of including the publication among its educational materials.
