Addressing Oil And Mineral Rights Disputes That Arise During Probate

Oil and gas drilling has boomed in Ohio, which has created many opportunities – and challenges – for people who hold or wish to obtain mineral rights. The term “mineral rights” refers to a person or entity’s ownership of the solid materials, oil, gas and any other minerals on a property.

As individuals and corporations rush to profit from the extraction of oil and other minerals, it is essential that those with property interests in mineral-rich areas protect their interests. When property tied to mineral rights is involved in a probate dispute, take care to work with a team with extensive experience in similar cases.

At Zigray Law Office, LLC, we have helped people in Ohio protect their rights relating to deposits in both the Marcellus and Utica Shale. In nearly 30 years of experience focusing exclusively on inheritance disputes and litigation, attorney Daniel Zigray has helped many mineral rights holders and their families ensure these assets are handled properly after the loss of a loved one.

Oil and mineral rights may be passed down in estate documents that are unclear or unknown to other parties. They may be divided among family members or managed by a trust. Inheritance disputes involving mineral rights are common, but the right help can help you resolve them as swiftly and painlessly as possible.
