“As a small rancher with many water-rights issues, Aaron Clay’s water law class was great. I have spent about 18 years learning about water rights on my own, and really wish that Aaron’s class had been available when I started the learning process. Because of his lengthy experience in the water court, he had a vast reservoir of knowledge about what is important to laymen. The information he presented was practical and easy to understand. For $50, this class was a true bargain.” ~Drew McCoy
