We are an Austin-based law firm dedicated to providing top-quality, cost-effective legal and governmental relations services.

Our primary areas of legal practice include environmental, administrative, utilities, and municipal law, with a specific emphasis on water-related matters. The attorneys of the firm counsel and represent governmental, corporate, and individual clients across Texas on a broad range of regulatory compliance and enforcement, environmental permitting, water resource supply and planning, endangered species, due diligence, litigation, and transactional issues involving local, state, and federal regulations.

Decades of experience in water law.

Our expertise in water law is founded on our attorneys’ extensive work on groundwater and surface water planning and management, water supply and water quality projects, water resource development and transactions, and groundwater, surface water, wastewater, and reclaimed water permitting, enforcement, and contested matters. Based on such comprehensive knowledge, our attorneys routinely speak on important water law issues across the state and nation, and author articles for publication.
