Summary

"Results, Not Excuses." I work hard to get you the result you want. There are many ways to solve a legal problem, and I will educate you about your options so that you can make an informed decision. I possess extensive experience in the field in oil and gas matters, especially title record searches. I work for many of the largest independent oil and gas production companies in the country. I accept cases in oil and gas, real estate, bankruptcy, and probate. The majority of my practice includes rendering drilling and division order title opinions for energy companies, providing leasing advice for landmen, and litigating title issues related to oil and gas. I also help royalty owners negotiate leases, draft deeds to convey or reserve minerals, and get royalty and bonus payments out of escrow. My availabilty to royalty owners is limited due to my links to the oil and gas industry. Please inquire about conflicts of interest before giving me any information about your situation. I work on oil and gas cases in both Northern and Southern Arkansas. My office location is in Little Rock, Arkansas. As an attorney practicing out of Little Rock, I can easily litigate cases around the state. I will often waive some or all of my travel time as a courtesy to clients that have cases outside of Little Rock area. While oil and gas is my favorite area of practice, I also handle many civil matters related to property law including probate, real estate, and bankruptcy. I probate wills, serve as in-state counsel for estates probated in other states, draft real estate contracts, and help citizens and businesses file for relief under the bankruptcy code. I represent clients before Arkansas State Courts, Federal District and Bankruptcy Courts of Arkansas, and the Arkansas Oil and Gas Commission.
