Board

Mr. Harry W. Skene

As an attorney with twenty-five years of experience in the practice of law, I have grown through experiencing  diverse issues over the years, which helps me to provide effective counsel to my clients.    In addition to my general business practice I have begun to focus my attention on water law issues.  I have honed my skill set to be an excellent listener, thinker and troubleshooter and these abilities help me to take a more active role in my client’s business so that I become more than just a legal asset.  A detailed outline of my experience is provided in my CV which can be found on my website below.

Lately there have been two major water leaks in the news (North Carolina and West Virginia) both of which resulted in contamination of drinking water and thus elevated the public’s knowledge and concern about the shared use of water.  There is only so much drinkable water on this planet.  As our population and use of water, both for consumption and industry, grow we will need better mechanisms in place to safeguard this precious natural resource.  Workable safeguards can be accomplished by concerned citizens involved in non-profit corporations and from other forward thinking business models such as Co-op Water Companies.  I enjoy water law and look forward to concentrating more of my time in this area.
