“CLA’s cooperative system using knowledgeable staff to facilitate work with its member attorneys provides an efficient solution to the Bay’s many difficult legal issues. CLA staff has worked with the Environmental Action Center (EAC) on several critical and complex issues that impact the Bay watershed. We are proud to call CLA a partner in our work to protect Maryland and the Bay watershed.”
“The Chesapeake Legal Alliance plays an absolutely critical role in the effort to restore the Bay. CLA connects communities and concerned citizens with top notch legal representation. And the expert law and policy guidance they provide is essential for the success of other advocates like me. If the organization didn’t exist, we’d have to invent it.”
“The South River Federation has engaged CLA for assistance with several projects, ranging from obtaining permits for large-scale restoration projects to litigation resulting in cleanup of the largest remaining tire dump in the state. The network of excellent attorneys CLA has established routinely provides outstanding representation to organizations dedicated to saving the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries.”
