JDSA attorneys know Water Law. We help you navigate the complex legal and regulatory systems dealing with the ownership, management, protection, and use of water resources. JDSA attorneys have experience working with municipalities, public and private utilities, real estate developers, industrial and commercial users, and all types of agricultural users regarding water needs.

Our attorneys routinely perform due diligence review of water rights associated with real estate transactions and water rights for purchase. On your behalf, JDSA attorneys identify water rights for transfer; negotiate for water rights purchase and sale agreements; assist with water rights transfers and change applications through the Department of Ecology and Water Conservancy Boards; and when other practical options are not available, JDSA will be your advocate in litigation to protect your water rights.
