As your trusted legal advisor, you can count on our personal service and prompt attention to you and all of your legal needs.
I had the wonderful opportunity of conducting a few seminars with Michelle (“Missy”) for Marcellus Shale Landowners. Residents of Northeast PA are very fortunate to have someone with the knowledge base that Missy has in our own backyard! With the impact and complexity that natural gas extraction poses to our region, Missy’s intellect and personable nature make her a valuable resource in the area of Oil and Gas Law. I will continue to refer my clients who are seeking an attorney with Oil and Gas Law expertise.
