San Diego Water Rights Litigation Lawyers
California Surface Water Dispute Lawyers
In many parts of California, landowners must take an aggressive stance to protect their water rights. Legal counsel is often needed to protect their interests in water against others. At the San Diego Campbell, Lauter & Murphy, Attorneys at Law, we represent clients in issues pertaining to water rights.
In California, a complex statutory and regulatory scheme affects water rights. California has a dual system of water rights consisting of appropriative and riparian/overlying rights. However complex, this scheme benefits many water and landowners.
Farmers, business entities, property developers, municipalities and private homeowners are all affected. We represent these parties in a broad range of issues of California water law:
- Resolution of disputes over water use
- Enforcement of water rights under California law
- Negotiation of the transfer of water rights
- Purchase, lease, sale or assignment of rights in surface waters
We are well prepared to take effective action. William K. (Bill) Koska, our principle attorney, has been AV-rated under Martindale-Hubbell's peer rating system for more than 30 years. This AV rating reflects his professional ability and commitment to the highest ethical standards.
