I specialize in the identification of un-adjudicated groundwater basins, conducting safe yield analyses and working with developers, municipalities, water districts, and private individuals to acquire and develop the water resources for use and/or for sale. I have prior expert witness experience with consultations, deposition, and courtroom testimony.
