One of the most important industries to affect Northeastern Pennsylvania has been the new discovery and extraction of natural gas from the various shale stratums such as the Marcellus Shale. This development of Natural Gas in our backyards has provided a number of complex legal issues regarding oil, gas and minerals and the effects of these issues on the land and royalty owners of Bradford, Sullivan, Tioga, Wyoming, and Susquehanna County. When dealing with these complex issues an experienced attorney is a necessity.

Our firm has experience in representing landowners and royalty owners with the various issues that they face. We are here to help guide you through this complex area of the law. Specifically including but not limiting we can provide legal representation in the following matters:

  • Oil and gas leases
  • Land development
  • Real estate transfers
  • Estate planning
  • Division orders
  • Royalty litigation
  • Pipeline agreements
  • Oil and gas litigation
  • Environmental matters
  • Well pad development/reclamation
  • Gas unit reviews
  • Purchase and sale of rights
  • Family Limited Partnerships/LLCs
  • Title issues

Unfortunately, at times proper representation in this field requires legal action on behalf of landowners and royalty owners to enforce your rights. The law offices of Griffin, Dawsey, DePaola & Jones have experience litigating actions against the big gas companies.
