My sisters and I inherited Mineral Rights in Texas. The person we inherited from lived and died in California. During a legal Mediation the interests were split with different percentages and different land areas. I have filed the mediation agreement in Texas. I have written a Stipluation of Ownership of Interest for us to sign to clarify the mediation agreement but would like an attorney to look it over to make sure it is correct. I asked our Attorney here in WA state but he felt I'd need to check with an Attorney in Texas or California who specializes in Mineral Rights.
Question: Since the Mineral Rights are in Texas do I have to use a Texas attorney or a Calfornia attorney since the previous owner lived and died there?
Any suggestions of who to use?
