Overview

The focus of Amy Romig’s practice is environmental and natural resource counseling and the Indiana Orders and Procedures Act (“AOPA”). She regularly represents clients in permitting, enforcement actions, and other adversarial proceedings before the Indiana Office of Environmental Adjudication and other administrative tribunals.

Amy has experience in representing environmental clients in administrative, trial, and appellate forums. Amy successfully defended a solid waste processing facility permit through administrative, judicial review, and appellate proceedings resulting in a favorable appellate opinion interpreting many AOPA issues.

Amy counsels clients on a broad variety of air, water, solid waste, underground storage tank, natural resource, agricultural and other environmental issues. She assists clients with cleanups performed under Indiana’s Voluntary Cleanup and other cleanup programs. Amy’s litigation successes include obtaining class certification on behalf of owners of property impacted by ethanol emissions from a distillery and resultant mold growth.
