Allison Brouk is a senior attorney with the Gulf Regional Office. Her work focuses on representing communities and nonprofit groups in advocating for the health of communities affected by pollution, the advancement of environmental justice, and the protection of ecological landscapes in the Gulf states.
Prior to joining Earthjustice, Allison was a partner at a New Orleans-based environmental litigation firm. There, she litigated precedent-setting cases on behalf of states seeking to clean up and restore natural resources injured by extensive contamination. This work included recovering damages from those responsible for the BP oil spill to implement projects throughout Louisiana to restore injured wetlands and coastal habitats; holding polluters in New Jersey accountable for damages to natural resources resulting from decades of improper waste disposal practices; and seeking proper cleanup of high levels of PFAS contamination from major sources within the State of New Mexico. She also represented a nonprofit organization in cases against operators of coastal facilities in the Northeast seeking to enforce violations of the Clean Water Act and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act for failing to follow the best practices in armoring their facilities against risks associated with climate change.
Allison received her B.A. from Tulane University and her law degree from Tulane University Law School, where she obtained a Certificate in Environmental Law. Allison lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, with her husband and two children.
