Stacey Geis is the Managing Attorney of the California regional office, which has locations in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Sacramento.
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. 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 for her nationwide criminal prosecution of Walmart for illegal disposal practices.
Stacey is a graduate of Brown University and the University of Virginia School of Law. She is also currently an adjunct professor at U.C. Hastings College of the Law.
Stacey is thrilled to lead the California Regional Office’s efforts to protect our planet and shared future because now, more than ever, the earth needs a good lawyer.
