Learn More About Northwest

The Northwest is a region in the United States consisting of the northernmost portions of California, the entirety of the states of Oregon and Washington, southeastern Alaska, as well as Idaho and western Montana.
 
Most of the population of the Northwestern U.S. is concentrated in the cities of Seattle, Washington and Portland, Oregon, and along the corridor between these cities and Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
 
Considering the large area that this region encompasses, and the extremely diverse population, there are a wide variety of legal issues facing the region, as one might imagine. Because of the region’s rich fisheries, environmental law is a very important issue. For example, the legal consequences of the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill, which occurred in Prince William Sound, Alaska, continue to reveal themselves today. That spill severely damaged local and regional fisheries, causing fishermen to suffer hundreds of millions of dollars in losses.
 
This resulted in a major lawsuit against Exxon, and a jury eventually awarded over 5 billion dollars in compensatory and punitive damages. However, just recently, the U.S. Supreme Court vacated most of that award, finding the punitive damages to be excessive, and sent the case back to the lower courts so they can determine a more appropriate amount of damages. It is likely to be years before this case is finally resolved.
 
All of this demonstrates the need for good lawyers in the Northwest. LegalMatch can help you find the right Northwest lawyer to meet your needs. The process is fast, free and confidential. All you need to do is present your case, and you’ll be well on your way.
