Representing Your Mineral Interests
Mining has turned into a profitable investment for property owners in recent years. However, Pennsylvania law requires both property owners and the mining production companies to comply with strict regulations involving gas, oil and coal. These endeavors also involve a considerable amount of risk.
That is why it is crucial to consult an attorney before you allow companies to drill on your property. The attorneys at Gordon & Dennison have over six decades of combined experience advocating for property owners’ rights in Jefferson County and western Pennsylvania. We share your values and will negotiate on your behalf. Our goal is to maximize your profit and minimize damage to your property.
