Energy Law

The attorneys at Stanton Serbousek Law Firm, service mineral interest owners, royalty owners, operators, lessors, and lessees throughout Texas in all aspects of the petroleum and natural gas industry. From researching title and mineral ownership, to negotiations of leases, to litigation and everything in between, we will ensure your oil and gas issues are efficiently resolved.

Our office is conveniently located in Uptown Dallas, and we hope you'll schedule a consultation there to see how we're different. Unlike other law firms, we don't require our staff or attorneys to bill a certain number of hours per month. Instead, we are focused on putting our clients' needs first. We understand that your time is money, and we're respectful of both: We strive to be efficient and cost-effective. This has earned us such a good reputation that one-third of our new cases come to us as referrals.
