Drill String


We provide our clients with a full suite of oil, gas and mineral title services with a particular expertise in Oklahoma and Texas. We pride ourselves on collaborating with our clients to draft accurate, timely and cost-conscious title opinions that succinctly detail relevant issues and provide practical curative solutions tailored to our clients’ needs.

Through decades of experience and while working with land and other industry professionals, we have developed a streamlined, proprietary process driven by technology that ensures our title opinions are user-friendly and customized to ensure your operations are on the strongest possible footing for success. Our attorneys have first-hand experience in some of the industry’s most difficult areas, including Indian/tribal lands, riparian lands, townsites, legacy HBP sections, and more. We offer multiple title services, including:

  • Drilling Title Opinions
  • Division Order Title Opinions
  • Limited Mineral & Leasehold Opinions
  • Acquisition and/or Divestiture Opinions
  • Mortgage Opinions
  • Title Due Diligence
  • Surface and Right-of-Way Ownership Opinions


We provide complete curative services so our clients can stay focused on their day-to-day operations. We are able to analyze title defects, make recommendations on curative action, draft or file the necessary curative instruments, and, finally, satisfy the title defect to provide certainty and mitigate risk.

While most title issues can be solved in multiple ways, our goal is always to provide our clients with the most efficient and cost-effective solution. Examples of curative steps required may include:

  • Properly drafted Affidavit of Heirship
  • Probate/Ancillary probate of an estate
  • Drafting of a Stipulation & Cross-conveyance
  • Quiet Title Action


We understand the difficult times facing our industry and offer reduced rates to clients who engage our firm for both title and OCC representation. This bundled service creates myriad efficiencies in preparing title opinions and regulatory applications (i.e. spacings and poolings), and it allows our team to leverage our technology to reduce drafting redundancies and maximize time savings.


Our title attorneys have provided Opinions covering nearly half of Oklahoma, with as many as 100 Opinions done in single counties alone.

While our work is not relegated just to the counties pictured, clients with projects in previously researched locations are likely to see quicker turnaround times and higher cost savings on their title Opinions.
