Congratulations to Advocate Capital, Inc. friend and client Mike McLachlan of the Law Offices of Michael D. McLachlan on the recent victorious judgment providing his clients with permanent water rights valued at $58M, awarded to thousands of litigants in the Antelope Valley Groundwater Cases.

The case has over 65,000 parties, covers 1,100 square miles, and is the largest groundwater rights adjudication in western U.S. history. The judgment is great news for the Antelope Valley, ending years of uncertainty of the region’s prospects for economic growth.
