Waste Management Attorneys
Rutter & Roy

Waste Management Attorneys Located in New Jersey


New Jersey has some of the most complex, restrictive and unusual laws and regulations in the United States concerning waste hauling companies. Rutter & Roy’s Waste Management practice group specializes in providing both strategic counsel and representation to companies and individuals in the waste hauling industry. Few, if any, firms have both the depth of experience and the personal relationships we bring to these issues.

Attorneys That Understand The Waste Management Regulatory Environment


A little background: the current regulatory environment arose from criminal investigation into allegations of price-fixing in the waste management industry in the 1970s. As a result, background checks for individuals in the industry are extremely intrusive and detailed, and hauling licenses in New Jersey are subject to an unprecedented degree of scrutiny.

For example, violations of seemingly minor regulations are cumulative, and can eventually result in the revocation of a hauler’s license, which effectively shuts down their business. Our clients are typically either individuals or firms whose licenses are at risk under this regime.

Attorneys with Experience in Waste Management Legal Matters


Waste Management Lawyers in New Jersey - Rutter & Roy

Our Waste Management practice is headed by Stephen Resnick. Steve’s background includes extensive experience as both an assistant district attorney and as a deputy attorney general investigating criminal activity in solid waste firms. As a result of his expertise, Steve has an inordinate degree of firsthand experience in the administrative law courts that adjudicate matters involving waste hauling firms. In addition, he has a detailed, hands-on knowledge of both the applicable laws and regulations and the government officials managing them. He also brings an extensive matrix of personal relationships with these officials to his work. Negotiating a resolution is much more efficient when it begins from a foundation of mutual trust and respect.

Our team has an unmatched grasp of the strategic issues involved in these matters, and we can effectively structure our representation to present issues administrative officials would prefer to settle rather than litigate. If, however, litigation is unavoidable, we are knowledgeable, tenacious and aggressive advocates on our clients’ behalf. Rutter & Roy’s litigation team is recognized for not taking unreasonable positions or being pointlessly aggressive. As a result, officials listen to our arguments. We are also exceptionally responsive and accessible – we provide our cell phone numbers to our clients. We return phone calls promptly.
