The right to own land, and own the minerals beneath that land, is one of the greatest privileges we have in this Country. As such, ownership of Mineral and Royalty Rights has been fought with guns and gavels in this country for over a hundred years.

Oil and Gas companies have wrongfully cheated consumers out of billions of dollars in wrongfully withheld royalties for decades. Sometimes this withholding of payment can be innocent by the companies, but often it is intentional. Regardless of the motive, consumers have a right to seek redress for their damages.

If you feel you’ve been cheated out of royalties for your property’s minerals, contact the energy lawyers at The Potts Law Firm for your free consultation.
