Brett Land joined Baron & Budd’s Environmental Litigation Group in 2014 after graduating from Emory University School of Law.
Prior to joining the firm, Brett worked as a summer associate at Baron & Budd for several years, concentrating on cases related to Perchloroethylene (PCE), Trichloropropane (TCP), Methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE) and Atrazine groundwater contamination. This work strengthened his resolve to help public entities seek justice for wrongful contamination and force the companies responsible to pay for cleanup.
During those summers, Brett had the opportunity to work on a number of major water contamination cases. Mr. Land performed diligent research and offered invaluable assistance in obtaining positive results for the firm’s clients. He also met with and assisted numerous victims of the 2010 Gulf oil spill by filing their legal claims.
Brett grew up in Midlothian, Texas, considered by some to be the “cement capital” of the state for its three gigantic cement plants providing a backdrop to practically every childhood memory of his hometown. Brett says that when the cement company closest to his home billowed smoke from its towering smokestacks at night, the chimneys’ floodlights bathed a good part of his neighborhood in a thick, orange, otherworldly haze. As a youth, Brett often wondered what might be in the smoke that filled the air he and his family were breathing. This concern instilled in the young man a keen desire to make sure that every manufacturer’s by-products are safe and, when they’re not, to stop those harmful contaminants in their tracks. Baron & Budd is proud to have an attorney on staff with such a passion for his craft and for the safety of our citizens.
