Here in Texas, water is a critical resource to our economy and growth, and the ability to produce and disperse water will play a crucial role in the future of our state.  Sprouse Shrader Smith’s water law attorneys are well-versed in groundwater law and rights. With offices throughout the state, we work to protect client ownership as well as interface with local regulatory agencies on permitting and metering.  Our attorneys have testified at state House and Senate hearings on various pieces of legislation impacting water rights. Our firm’s headquarter location in the Panhandle, where groundwater is more abundant than downstate, means we know how important it is that farmers’, ranchers’, and others’ ownership of groundwater under their land be recognized.
