Experienced Mineral Rights Representation
At the office of Pledger Law, PC, we represent individuals and companies with legal interests involving mineral rights, with a focus on oil and gas law. Our attorney, Jean Pledger, brings more than 20 years of oil and gas law and litigation experience to our firm.
Mineral rights are a complex area of property law. We know many people may have ownership interests in oil and gas leases, but they may not always know what rights are provided to them through those leases. We believe in a personalized approach to legal counsel. This means that we will take the time to explain the law and how your lease works. We want you to fully understand your lease. We can help you protect your rights, whether by negotiation or through litigation.
