With so much oil and natural gas extraction taking place in Texas and Oklahoma, disputes can arise about who actually owns the rights to natural resource deposits. When money is at state, it is important to have someone on your side who is knowledgeable and experienced about mineral lease disputes.
When an oil or gas company wants to drill materials from a piece of land, they will often lease the mineral rights from the landowner. Although these leases can be a great source of income, signing a lease without understanding the terms can have terrible consequences.
