Gallery and Barton, a Professional Law Corporation provides a variety of practical and effective legal assistance related to water, land use, public agency, and environmental law. With today’s rapidly changing legal and regulatory climate, public agencies, private corporations, and individuals require the legal assistance we provide more than ever.

Located in downtown Sacramento, our office is near many of California’s regulatory agencies. This includes, but is not limited to, the State Water Resources Control Board, the Department of Water Resources, and the Department of Fish and Game. This provides us with easy access to documents and staff, which facilitates the resolution of issues involving these agencies, whether the issue is related to land use changes, irrigation of crops and vineyards, appropriative and riparian water rights, dams and reservoirs, California Environmental Quality Act documentation, habitat modification, mitigation measures, land sales, or water transfers.

In addition to these specialized services, we provide a variety of services to both public and private entities involving contracts, local agency elections, the Public Records Act, the Brown Act, easements, groundwater, and property rights.

If you have questions involving any of these topics, and which are not answered in our "Water Law Basics" page, you are welcome to contact Mr. Barton. Preliminary consultations are always free.
