Eagle Ford Lawsuits


The Eagle Ford Shale oil and gas boom is creating record numbers of court docket cases across Central and South Texas. The incredible amount of oil and gas exploration has generated a tremendous rise in Eagle Ford Shale area related litigation. Generally, oil and gas litigation cases tend to be filed after about five years and oil and gas exploration has been occurring in the Eagle Ford Shale region since 2009. Initially parties involved tend to be focused on development and exploration of resources. However, businesses and landowners are reaping record profits from the amount of oil and gas deposits in the region resulting in both parties wanting to ensure they protect their profits. Eagle Ford Shale has seen a nearly 100% rise in litigation over the past three years.

Mineral rights have been a major contributor to legal disputes and the paperwork for mineral rights usually dates back many decades causing disputes among families that are generally resolved in the courthouse. Additionally, mineral owners often dispute partnerships between oil and gas companies and what the drilling companies should receive, resulting in litigation. As more and more income is generated, disagreements will continue to occur over how the income will be distributed among all interested parties.


If you or your company is in a business dispute, contractual dispute or facing litigation or the need for litigation, call Carabin Shaw.

Our Firm is available to discuss your case. In San Antonio call 210.222.2288 or toll free 1.800.862.1260. Our expanded Business Law Legal Team is different from most other Texas law firms. While we can, like every other business services firm, provide the business litigation for an hourly basis, but we may be able to provide needed legal services on a contingency basis. Meaning that we are only paid, if we win your case. Or we may be able to offer a Hybrid, where we charge less per hour and a lesser percentage. While not every business dispute case can be worked or accepted on a contingency based fee, we can evaluate the case and discuss options.

We may be able to provide legal services on a contingent-fee basis, for business disputes, contract disputes and business litigation. Depending on the specifics of the case or dispute or situation we may be able to provide legal services on a contingency basis, where we charge no attorney's fees unless we win your case.

If the case cannot be accepted on a contingency basis, we will charge a fair fee.
