"Our firm is unique by nature - we deal with environmental cases. What makes us unique as a team is that we take things personally and we treat people as people, not as cases. What makes me unique as a lawyer is my scientific and legal approach - on a professional level, and the fact that I'm both driven and understanding - on a personal level. I am dedicated to my mission and I do everything in my power to help our clients."
Gregory Cade is a unique attorney, having a strong scientific background that enables him to efficiently assist clients injured by toxic exposure and defective products. He is the Principal Attorney at Environmental Litigation Group, P.C. With over 20 years of experience, the attorney is also the founder of the law firm as it is today, as he expanded its practice area from asbestos exposure to other types of cases involving environmental contaminants.
Gregory Cade began working at Environmental Litigation Group, P.C. in 1990 as a paralegal while attending graduate school to obtain his Master of Public Health in Occupational Health, Safety, and Industrial Hygiene. The degree has been of utmost importance in allowing him to know his cases in depth and to find the most favorable legal options for his clients. Gregory Cade worked closely with toxicologists, epidemiologists, and other scientists at the UCLA School of Public Health, contributing to a thorough understanding of how environmental contaminants affect human health.
Having represented thousands of individuals and communities over the Southeast, Gregory Cade is driven to help injured people obtain the compensation they deserve for their unjust suffering. The attorney had the vision to form a national trial law firm that litigates multidistrict environmental cases throughout the United States. A true understanding of the principles of toxic torts, quantitative analysis, and environmental law has carved a career for Gregory Cade in a practice area that is often avoided due to its complexity, time consumption, and financial risk.
The attorney’s dedication and motivation are renewed daily while working with clients who have been negligently or intentionally injured by exposure to toxic contaminants in the workplace or the environment. While Gregory Cade is the Principal Attorney at the law firm, he always makes sure to allow everyone on the legal team to have a word to say on how to approach a case, as he works in a democratic and diplomatic capacity.
