Stacey Geis is the Managing Attorney of the California regional office, located in San Francisco, CA.
Stacey joined Earthjustice in 2014 after having spent over ten years prosecuting environmental crimes at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in San Francisco. While there, she criminally prosecuted pollution, fisheries, and wildlife cases, including the criminal prosecution of Walmart in 2013 for nationwide illegal hazardous waste practices and the criminal prosecution of the shipping company and the bar pilot who caused the 2007 Cosco Busan oil spill in the San Francisco Bay. Before that, she was the senior prosecutor for the California Circuit Prosecutor Project and prosecuted over 100 criminal and civil environmental enforcement cases around the State. For her work, she has been named one of California’s Top 100 Lawyers by the Daily Journal and, in 2014, received the California Lawyer Attorney of the Year award.
