Can an Oil and Gas Attorney Help Land Owners Determine Monetary Damages?

Yes. It is important to note, however, that damages should never be assumed in a pending legal matter. First and foremost, an oil and gas attorney will focus on helping you to determine and protect your rights. While laws governing oil and gas-related property rights do vary by state, there is one caveat, which is held as virtually universal: "An owner of real estate also owns the minerals underneath the surface, unless the minerals are severed under a preceding deed or an agreement."
