Our attorneys are committed to facilitating smooth and successful acquisitions or sales of oil and gas property. When you are buying or selling property, being certain of ownership of both land and mineral rights is critical. We can assist with that step of the process, all related contracts and title issues, and work to see that the transaction is completed in a timely and cost-effective manner.

Title opinions

Our lawyers are skilled at researching, drafting and reviewing title opinions. You can be assured of reliable and dependable opinions, correct calculations, remedies for problems for both producers and interest owners, and advice on other concerns related to title.

We will prepare your oil and gas title opinions for drilling, division orders, wellbore title opinions and any other property law questions or document needs that you may have.

Our goal is to provide you with opinions and figures that you can rely upon in a timely and professional way. We want to retain clients and look forward to long-term working relationships with companies and individuals.

Before you drill a well, the title opinion will determine ownership and protect your various interests. Before you distribute proceeds from production of a well, a division order title opinion will establish the payments to be made. Contact us before you begin work to avoid potential disputes and other problems.


Our knowledge of the oil and gas industry allows us to help landowners and their families with estate planning and probate when oil and gas land and royalties are involved.

Property Law

We can also help with all oil and gas-related property matters, including surface damage and environmental claims and more.
