West Virginia Mineral Law Attorneys
What Are Mineral Rights in Virginia?
Our state of West Virginia is known for being rich in natural resources, including coal, oil, and gas, and as a result, there are many individuals who own land and minerals. Mineral rights are the ownership claims for natural resources located beneath a plot of land.
Some may have a good grasp of their mineral rights, having worked in the industry for years, while others have inherited mineral rights from their families and are unsure of what their rights entail.
If you own land and looking to transfer a lease, are having a dispute over royalties, or simply want legal advice on titles, our West Virginia mineral law attorneys can provide counsel.
Persinger & Persinger, L.C. has worked in the energy and natural resource industry for decades and can be trusted to advocate on your behalf.
