Folks in Mayflower with legal questions about property damage and health effects, can receive some information and answers during a town meeting tonight.

The Johnson & Vines law firm is partnering with the Hare, Wynn, Newell & Newton (HWNN) law firm to represent those affected by the oil spill.

According to Johnson & Vines managing partner Anthony Johnson, "HWNN is a nationally recognized law firm in representing the interest of those damages through fault of large corporations. It has litigated matters against major oil companies, including BP, Exxon, and Shell, and recently secured a multi-million dollar judgment and settlement on behalf Arkansas farmers whose property interest had been impacted by genetically modified rice supplied by Bayer Cropscience."

According to Johnson his firm has been receiving calls from people who live in Mayflower, who haven't been evacuated, but are still affected by the spill and feel they aren't receiving the same amount of information of those two dozen families who were evacuated.

Whether it's property damage, a decrease of general property value in the area, or the health effects, Johnson said people have questions and should be able to have an independent entity working on their behalf.

"It's actual damages these people are incurring that's all we're trying to do is get just compensation for harm that these people are receiving despite having no fault in it having occurred," Johnson said. "We've seen a number of people with questions who don't really want to get answers from Exxon because of the conflicting interest they have in what's going on."
