"I enjoy helping families work together, whether it is with parents and children trying to figure out how to manage the mineral interest they inherited from Grandpa, with siblings trying to negotiate as a block to get the best deal on a mineral lease, or with divorcing couples trying to learn to communicate for the sake of their children."
- Leslie Dolliver
I firmly believe that God has a sense of humor. When I was in law school, the two areas of law that were at the bottom of my list were oil and gas law and family law. Well, here I am practicing both, which to most people seem to have nothing in common at first glance. My oil and gas practice is focused on assisting people with the negotiation of a mineral lease, the sale of a mineral interest, or advice about how to manage a mineral interest. Often, these mineral interests are passed down from one generation to the next, with the older generation sharing little to no information with those next in line to manage them. My family law practice is limited to those who choose the collaborative process, which allows people to make very personal family decisions in a very structured, private manner.
With my personal interest in family history and sharing stories with the next generation, I find great pleasure in helping families through what can be difficult times--whether that means helping to negotiate a mineral lease, a sale of a mineral interest, advising a group of siblings as to how to keep a mineral interest intact so that it remains valuable for their children, or negotiating a prenuptial agreement or a collaborative divorce.
