Greenfire Law attorneys litigate to protect environmental rights on behalf of nonprofit organizations, communities, and workers. Our tribal practice advances the interests of Native American tribes through tribal governance, economic development, and litigation. Our energy practice advocates on behalf of energy consumers for progressive energy policies and to address climate change. Our environmental and land use practice assists clients to protect water and air quality and to advocate for the ecological management of public lands. Our attorneys are at the forefront of the cannabis revolution, advocating for better public policies and assisting in the development of a new industry while respecting the ecology and communities where cannabis is sourced. Finally, we are advocates of transparent governance and so work with the firm’s clients to obtain records from federal and state agencies.
Merging the focused practices of our team, we have created a vibrant law firm and an exciting place to work, expanding the experience and the capacity available to our clients and making it possible to attract the highest quality attorneys.
What’s in Our Name
We reached the old wolf in time to watch a fierce green fire dying in her eyes. I realized then, and have known ever since, that there was something new to me in those eyes – something known only to her and to the mountain. I was young then, and full of trigger-itch; I thought that because fewer wolves meant more deer, that no wolves would mean hunters’ paradise. But after seeing the green fire die, I sensed that neither the wolf nor the mountain agreed with such a view.
Aldo Leopold, A Sand County Almanac.
This ethic of respecting the wisdom and mystery of the natural world is the driving force behind Greenfire Law’s work.
