Oklahoma Texas Mineral Law


We strive to provide a broad range of services dedicated to advising and assisting both surface and mineral interest owners in a number of pertinent areas. From curing title defects to advising on current market values, our industry knowledge provides mineral owners with better management and understanding of their assets.

If you’re an owner of unclaimed mineral rights, or are due oil and gas royalties that are not currently being paid, we can help.

These issues typically arise because of a title defect, which causes proper ownership of mineral rights to be questioned and royalty funds to be suspended. These title defects can be caused by any number of issues, including un-probated estates, gaps in title, ambiguous deeds, and even basic clerical errors.

In order to clear up these issues, certain legal actions may be necessary, including:

  • Quiet Title Action
  • Probate of an Estate
  • Properly Drafted Affidavit of Heirship
  • Properly Drafted Stipulation of Interest and Cross-Conveyance


Just like a private lease or rental agreement, oil and gas leases are legally binding contracts that require serious consideration before signing. We work with mineral interest owners from around the country to ensure they receive the best terms and largest possible bonus monies before they enter into an oil and gas lease. If you’re an individual with mineral ownership or oil and gas lease questions, feel free to contact us. You’ll be put in touch with one of our attorneys for a free consultation and preliminary recommendation on how to proceed.


We can help answer questions and resolve any issues you may be having​ with your mineral ownership. Give us a call at 918-779-6047, or email us at info@charneybrown.com for a free consultation, and one of our attorneys will be in touch within 1 business day.
