If I need a lawyer to review a contract, what area of expertise should I look for in the Attorney? '

I have a piece of property and they are drilling near by my land for oil/gas here in Texas, which I have the mineral rights. They are sending a contract for some potential oil/gas under the land I own.

Should I look for an Oil & Gas Attorney to review the contract?
Hello friend. My name is XXXXX XXXXX welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice, and, (2) there may be a slight delay between your follow ups and my replies.

If I need a lawyer to review a contract, what area of expertise should I look for in the Attorney?

You would look under the following areas of law:

"business"
"contract law"
"general practice."

If this is oil and has relates, then "oil and gas" should also be an option.

Should I look for an Oil & Gas Attorney to review the contract?

The answer is yes. Oil and gas contracts are notoriously complex and it is highly recommended to have an attorney review it before signing anything.

May I recommend the Texas Bar referral program - here. The attorneys are vetted and qualified. You should be able to find an attorney you are confident with and whom you can trust, and who is available ASAP.

Best of luck.
