Houston Oil and Gas Transactions Lawyer

When you are involved in business dealings involving oil and gas matters, you want an experienced attorney to protect your rights. These matters can get complicated in a hurry. You want an attorney with comprehensive knowledge of the law, the process and the industry: someone who has seen it from both sides and who has successfully helped others in circumstances similar to yours.

At the Law Offices of Gerard J. Swonke, P.C., Mr. Swonke has been involved in legal matters related to oil and gas issues for more than 40 years.

Swonke, P.C., we practice law with the knowledge that we can anticipate the strategies and tactics companies in general, and oil and gas companies in particular, will take. It is with that insight we can protect your interests.
