I work on one of the most important issues of our time—water resources management. Next to air, water is the most critical natural resource we have on this planet. Without it, those fundamental tenets of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are each impossible. This isn't rhetoric. It's a simple but profound truth.
I focus my practice on courtroom and agency litigation--most often involving complex water rights disputes and other surface and subsurface hydrology related issues. My clients regularly turn to me for counsel on regulatory compliance challenges and policy development issues affecting their most critical surface water and groundwater resources.
This means I have the privilege of representing my clients' interests at the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, the Texas Water Development Board, and at the Railroad Commission of Texas. I help guide water suppliers and water developers, individual private property owners, corporate and public entities alike on myriad water supply challenges.
Finally, when disputes over my clients' interests cannot be resolved amicably, I am often asked to fight their fights on their behalf in the courtroom. My training as a litigator and appellate advocate lets me seamlessly transition my client services from risk assessment and management to conflict resolution in administrative and traditional courtroom litigation and appeals.
