Oil, gas and mineral law in Louisiana is one of the most complex areas of law around. In addition to knowing the regime of oil and gas law in Louisiana, a competent oil and gas attorney must understand property law, family law, succession and probate law and other arcane bits of law such as those dealing with cemeteries, schools and churches.
