Edgecomb Law Group LLP
Tiffany Hedgpeth focuses her practice on environmental litigation and compliance counseling relating to contaminated soil, sediment, groundwater and surface water as well as sewage spills and other discharges. She has particular experience in breach of contract actions that involve complicated environmental issues. Many of her cases include Clean Water Act, CERCLA and RCRA issues.
Tiffany represents municipalities, private companies, and individuals across a variety of industries, including product manufacturing; pesticide and other chemical formulation, packaging, and sales; property investment; metal forming; and aerospace. She regularly represents parties in cost recovery actions, contract matters, administrative enforcement and permitting proceedings, and has defended clients against enforcement actions brought by EPA, states, and citizen groups. Tiffany has served as liaison counsel for a group of potentially responsible parties (PRPs) in five consolidated cases involving a regional Superfund site. She has a national practice and has participated in federal court cases in numerous states.
Most of Tiffany’s cases involve extensive fact finding, both in terms of documents and witnesses. She understands the strain that litigation poses on an entity and its employees and works hard to limit business disruption and client stress throughout the litigation process. While most of Tiffany’s cases are resolved without a trial, she also has trial experience. Tiffany was cited by a client in Legal 500 US (2011) as being “client focused, cost-conscious and strategy driven.” Recognized as a leading environmental practitioner by Chambers USA (2013-2018), she has been described as an “extremely hard-working” lawyer who pays “great attention to detail.”
Prior to joining Edgcomb Law Group, Tiffany was a partner working in the environmental group of a 1000+ attorney international law firm. She joined Edgcomb Law Group in 2013, as one of the first partners in the Southern California office.
