My law firm, Robert S. McCormick, Attorney at Law, offers effective counsel on a complete range of water law issues throughout the state.

Determined lawyer protects clients’ legal access to natural resources
Starting with a free initial consultation, my firm handles a full range of water law concerns, including those relating to:
- Establishment of water rights — Under the Colorado Constitution, residents have a right to use unappropriated state water, but the process of establishing this legal authority can be complicated. Whatever type of appropriation you seek, I’ll guide you through every step and answer any questions you have, including concerns about riparian rights in locations where they apply.
- Transactions — In purchases, sales, leases and other transactions involving water rights, my firm delivers informed counsel to help businesses, families and individuals negotiate the best deal possible.
- Disputes — Disagreements over water rights can have a significant impact on your property’s use and value. In situations where there is a dispute over priority, misappropriation or boundaries, I quickly assess each side’s position and press for a favorable outcome.
- Regulatory matters — The Colorado Division of Water Resources is responsible for administering matters relating to water rights and interstate agreements with other waterways. When you have a permit concern, an information request or some other issue before this body, my firm can pursue the result you seek.
In the Denver Metro area, Northern Colorado and the Western Slope, you can rely on me to safeguard your legal and property interests.
