The Marcellus and Utica Shale formations stretch from southern New York through Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Ohio, have created an impressive boom in drilling and extraction of oil and gas. Landowners need to be protected when they are approached about oil and gas leasing, as the companies involved know every trick in the book for getting the better end of the deal against unsuspecting citizens. If you are a landowner and you are approached by a company about your rights, you need to hire an attorney to negotiate the best possible deal for you and protect your rights. If you have already entered into an agreement and you feel the gas company is trampling on your rights, Bordas & Bordas handles cases in that area as well. This specialized area of law makes it hard for ordinary folks to know what the company can and can’t do. Bordas & Bordas makes it our business to know so that we can help you get the best deal and make sure your rights are not trampled on by oil and gas companies.
