    Whether it's Oil, Gas, or other Minerals, when your case revolves around energy issues, it is necessary to have an attorney who understands your needs.  Formerly practicing in Houston in the litigation section of an Oil and Gas boutique firm which handled all aspects of oil and gas matters, Gary J. Holloway has experience with the particulars of the industry as related to litigation and what is at stake. He has also served as General Counsel and Land Manager for an independent oil and gas company.

     Members of the oil and gas industry are particularly good at judging risk as that is what most do on a daily, or at least a prospect, basis.  However, when your oil and gas company is facing litigation or has a claim that needs to be enforced, don't risk your case by choosing counsel who cannot communicate with you on your terms.  If you just hire any lawyer to represent you in an oil and gas issue, chances are that you will have to "upgrade your prospects" sooner rather than later to protect your interests.

    Many oilfield service providers have provided valuable services only to have the leaseholders fail to pay in a timely manner if at all.  However, the Texas Property Code allows for the placement of a mineral lien in many situations; Gary Holloway has experience in utilizing the mineral lien statute to collect outstanding amounts due and protect the client's interests.  If you have unpaid invoices which could be collected through the mineral lien process, do not hesitate to contact Gary Holloway to discuss how this firm may be able to help you collect.

     Whether you are an operator, royalty owner, working interest owner, service provider, Lessee, or Lessor, you need an attorney who has a grasp of issues that affect you.  The focus of this firm's practice is on litigation, administrative law and transactional matters including corporate formation; allow me to assist you with your oil and gas legal needs.  Gary Holloway has handled Administrative matters at the Railroad Commission.  If you need an easement drafted, a pipeline right of way reviewed, or a mineral lien filed, this firm can provide the representation your company needs.   

If you have any questions or comments regarding this firm's energy law practice, please do not hesitate to call or email.
