Our Oil and Gas Practice

We are a full-service oil and gas firm, providing services to clients on both sides of a controversy. Among the wide range of issues we handle are:

  • Mineral interests - We represent people who own mineral interests in California. We will help you review or finalize a lease to protect your rights.
  • Quiet title actions - We advise owners of real property who are involved in title disputes, particularly with respect to mineral rights.
  • Title opinions - Our lawyers will review title documents and provide you with an opinion regarding whether you have surface or mineral interests. In many situations, we can avoid litigation by providing you with a solid title opinion.
  • Lease issues - Our attorneys review oil and gas leases for oil companies and landowners.

We can also provide general counsel services to oil and gas companies in the Central Valley, counseling you on all types of legal issues that arise on a day-to-day basis.
