D. Adele Owen


For 25 of her 31 years of civil trial experience in both state and federal courts, Ms. Owen’s practice has been almost exclusively focused on complex litigation. Most of her work was in the context of environmental lawsuits seeking damages and remediation arising from pollution caused by oil and gas exploration, production activities, and chemical facility contaminant releases to water, air, and soil.

This experience includes a well-rounded knowledge of chemistry; scientific and engineering principles; the application of state and federal environmental regulations ad statues; oil and gas regulations; environmental and ecological risk assessment and remediation mitigation; hydrology; groundwater contamination; contaminant hydrogeology; and geological, geophysical and lithological sciences involving both chemical facility operations and oilfield operations. 

Ms. Owen’s extensive experience as a professional writer involves pre-trial motion practice and hearings; the investigation, preparation and trial of claims; the preparation of expert witnesses for the trial; and subsequent presentation of expert testimony at trial.
