Houston and Austin Oil and Gas Royalties Attorneys

Across Texas and neighboring states, owners of land and mineral rights have been collecting oil and gas royalties for many years and even for generations. Often, payments are received under agreements made years or decades ago, and the funds have been deposited without question. However, what happens when oil and gas companies take advantage of landowners' trust? The oil and gas attorneys at the Manginello Law Firm can offer assistance with your royalty concerns and provide aggressive, affordable legal representation at any stage of a royalty dispute.

Fighting for Your Right to Oil and Gas Royalties.

While it is easier to assume that an oil company is dealing with its contracts in an open and fair manner, unfortunately it has become common for companies to underpay their oil and gas royalty obligations. The oil and gas attorneys of the Manginello Law Firm have successfully pursued numerous mineral right royalty claims against major oil and gas companies.

Our clients are often unsure of who signed the original gas or oil extraction agreement, or where the information can be found. It is not uncommon for the original contract signer to have passed away, leaving the details of the contract in question. We can help locate a copy of the contract, analyze the terms of the agreement, investigate the oil company's operations in regard to your property, and pursue back payments and punitive damages when infractions exist.
