Cristina Arana Lumpkin
Cristina is an environmental lawyer who thinks like her developer clients. She recognizes that the regulations her clients must follow come with real-world compliance costs. Whether her clients are building single-family residential projects, multifamily units, mixed use, commercial space, or industrial sites, Cristina knows her clients need creative, practical guidance.
Cristina provides counsel on a wide range of environmental compliance issues, including pre-acquisition due diligence, contamination cleanup, and permitting. She works extensively with clients in highly regulated industries such as landfills and scrap-metal recycling. Cristina regularly represents clients responding to enforcement actions, helping them assess their options and develop a strategic approach to achieving compliance and, when possible, avoid litigation.
