Oil and Gas Attorney in Nampa

Joe Frick began his legal career practicing oil and gas law in Montana, North Dakota, and Wyoming at a large law firm in Billings, MT. During law school, his main area of study was natural resources, earned a certificate in Natural Resources Law with distinction, and earned the CALI Excellence for the Future Award for oil and gas law.

He has assisted oil companies and individuals to work through complex oil and gas and title issues.

Oil and gas law is a complex mix between real property law and contract law to form its own unique, complex area of the law. Each state has different subtleties regarding its application. Joe Frick Law, PLLC serves clients in Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, and Wyoming.

Title Opinions

There are various types of title opinions which all serve different purposes, but the main purpose is to determine who owns the oil and gas underlying a specific parcel of land. In order to determine the title, a lawyer must examine the title to the land from the date the land was patented from the United States government to the present. During that time frame, a number of title issues can arise. Joe Frick has experience in examining title and identifying any issues that may exist regarding any individual’s title to the land and coming up with a concrete plan to resolve said issues. Specifically, we have the experience and capability to draft the following detailed title opinions in an efficient and cost effective manner:

  • Drilling Title Opinions
  • Division Order Title Opinions
  • Supplemental Title Opinions
  • Acquisition Title Opinions

Title Curative

As discussed above, a title opinion’s main purpose is to identify the title to a specific parcel of land and identify any defects that may exist regarding said title. One of the most frequent issues that arise are missing probates from one generation to another. In order to resolve a missing probate or inadequate inheritance, an individual must obtain a proper probate proceeding where the land is situated. This may involve multiple steps, especially if the individual’s estate that must be probated was a resident and passed away in another state.

In some situations, the title defect may be much more complicated and need more extreme steps to cure the defect. In those situations, it may be appropriate to initiate a quiet title action to conclusively determine the title to whole parcel of land in dispute. This process is much more intense than simply initiating a probate proceeding, but is the only appropriate measure in certain circumstances.

A probate proceeding and a quiet title action are only a couple of ways to cure a title defect. At Joe Frick Law, PLLC, we have the expertise needed to cure any title defect that may arise regarding your interest to an oil and gas producing parcel of land.
