The ownership and management of mineral rights can be a complex process. While there are companies that make a business out of buying and selling mineral rights, many mineral right owners acquire their interest as a result of a real estate transaction or an inheritance from a relative. The mineral right gives the owner the ability to explore for, develop and produce any minerals that may exist on the property. In the oil and gas industry, the mineral owner frequently signs an oil and gas lease with a company specializing in the exploration and production of oil and gas. Kinney Law Office can help mineral owners develop a strategy to use their mineral rights to achieve their personal and financial goals. We believe that every mineral owner should benefit from the development of their resources in a way that protects their interests. Contact our office today to find out how we can help you!

These technologies come with a unique set of challenges and proper evaluation and structuring of renewable energy projects is critical to ensuring their long-term success and viability. Our strategic location on the wind-swept plains of Wyoming had provided an opportunity to work with state governments to address these challenges from the very beginning. Kinney Law Office understands both the unique sets of issues and benefits for landowners, private companies and utilities that come from development of renewable energy projects.

Do you have the right documents in place to protect your family?

Our process begins with a Family Wealth Planning Session. Before the Session you will complete homework that will have you feeling more organized and put together than you have in a long time. Maybe ever.

Not ready for a Family Wealth Planning Session? Schedule an initial consultation to get your questions answered and get a feel for our firm.

During the Session, we will look at what would happen to all of what you have and everyone you love if anything were to happen to you. Then we will create a plan together to make sure everything goes the way you want it to – you are always in control. Your family will always know just how much you care.

Should we decide there are things we can do to take care of your family better than they are taken care of now, we will present you with planning options that allow you to decide on your fee and the level of service that is right for you and your family.
