TCLF Friendly and Never too Busy To Answer Questions
A few years ago I was approached by several gas companies regarding gas leasing. I knew I would need some legal help. Not really knowing a lawyer, I saw an ad in the local paper for the Clark Law Firm. So I gave them a call, I was very pleased how friendly they were and eager to help. So I gave them a try. Since then I have recommended them to several people and would do so again. They handled my gas leasing with the most professional care always making sure that my contract was in the best of my interest. After what seems like a hundred phone calls with questions I would have, they were never too busy to answer them. I highly recommend The Clark Law Firm.

Doug is Straightforward Offering Sound and Clear Advice
As a landowner in Wyoming County, PA and having no experience in gas leasing I was fortunate to find the services of Doug Clark. He was straightforward with sound, clear advice and was responsive when I had questions. I feel Doug negotiated the best gas leasing contract he could for me and did it for a reasonable price.

You were both very helpful in answering any and all of our questions and concerns about the lease and the addendums. We felt very comfortable in having you represent us and will use your firm again.

Felt Great to have Doug Clark – A Landowner Lawyer
The Clark Law Firm helped my brothers and I get a great leasing agreement with Cabot for our family property in Susquehanna County. Our final lease looked nothing like the lease originally offered from Cabot. He was able to address our property concerns about leasing our longtime family farm. I was very hesitant to sign a lease at first, but with Doug’s help, I knew it was the right thing for our family and our future. Doug and Marceea were very accessible and kind. It felt great to know that we had a landowner lawyer who looked at things from our perspective. Doug did a great job and I would gladly recommend him to any landowner in the future.
TCLF Bests Other Law Firms
Jan and I think you did an excellent job with our lease agreement. It was handled in a professional and timely manner. The protections your office negotiated were much better than leases secured, by other law firms for some of our neighbors. We were well served by you and your highly trained staff. Marceea provided not only invaluable expertise but some comic relief for a very stressful situation.

Couldn’t Have Been Happier with Doug’s Knowledge and Efforts
Our family contacted Doug Clark based on the recommendation of friends he negotiated a lease for. Our family owns over 225 acres in Susquehanna County. We couldn’t have been happier with his knowledge and efforts. Doug kept us in the loop as he negotiated with several companies. We were able to increase our bonus offer and royalty percentage with Doug’s help. He also addressed our concerns about environmental issues and helped us feel confident we were protecting our family’s property for future generations. Our entire family is grateful for all Doug’s efforts and assistance during a confusing and stressful time. We were extremely pleased with Doug’s reasonable fees, efforts and assistance. I feel very fortunate that we found him to represent us in leasing our property and welcomed the opportunity to write a testimonial for his services.
Hopes More Families Will Hire TCLF
I was introduced to Doug Clark's work at a seminar he hosted in Wellsboro, PA. I was impressed with his experience. I had gone to meetings hosted by natural gas companies in the past. No mention of potential pitfalls were brought to my attention. After the seminar, I was better prepared to talk with a land man. I knew what I wanted for the future of my land.After weeks of attempting negotiations with a landman, I could see I needed someone with more experience on my side. The negotiations were not going well. The other side did not want to budge on terms in the contract. This was problematic because the terms could hold the land in a non-producing state. I thought of the seminar that Doug Clark hosted. With his help, my contract with the natural gas companies is solid. I hope more businesses and families in the area will hire The Clark Law Firm for the negotiation process.

Recommends TCLF “To All Who Will Listen”
Thank you for the Oil and Gas Lease you negotiated for us with the Cabot Oil and Gas Corporation. You managed to incorporate details in our favor that we are sure we wouldn’t have been able to on our own; in fact, some we didn’t even know about. We are recommending your services to all who will listen. Thanks again.

Landowners Owe it to Themselves to Call Doug Before Signing Gas Lease or Anything Related
When I signed my initial gas lease in 2006, I was totally unaware and was ignorant of what was all involved. I signed with the belief that the landman was being honest and upfront with the terms and explanations of the lease and that I could trust that he was looking out for my best interests. I could have never been so wrong! As I later found out, many things were incorrectly explained and represented regarding my gas lease. It was at that point I decided that if I ever was presented with any gas lease renewal or anything natural gas related, I would seek out legal help before signing anything. In May of this year, my opportunity came. A company that was working with the company I originally signed with offered a top lease. At first I decided to talk with the landman myself as I had educated myself alot through internet webinars and various websites about things I should ask for. After about one week of trying to negotiate with the landman and basically being fed a bunch of bologna, I decided that I needed to find an HONEST, REPUTABLE, and EXPERIENCED gas lease attorney. I spent several hours online and on the phone searching for someone that I was comfortable with representing me. I wasn't comfortable with the first two attorneys that I spoke with. One charged on a royalty percentage basis, and the other made me feel like I was wasting his time. Luckily, Attorney Doug Clark was the third attorney that I called. I spoke with Marceea and she was very friendly, knowledgeable, and gave me all the time that I needed to answer any and all questions that I had. I knew from that conversation that I had found the right attorney for the job! My first conversation with Doug lasted well over an hour and he explained many of the terms of the gas lease and addendum as well as answered all of my questions. He was very concerned with what I wanted from the lease and what protections I hoped for in regards to my property. If any question or concern arose after that, I simply either emailed or called Doug and it was addressed very quickly. I can sincerely say that I am VERY pleased with The Clark Law Firm! I am confident that I made the right choice in selecting Doug to handle my gas lease negotiations. I have already recommend him to all of my friends and neighbors, at least two of which I believe are also going to be clients of Doug. I feel that anyone that has a gas lease or anything related owes it to themselves to call and speak with Doug before signing anything.

David and Lynne Zavetsky, Happy Royalty Gas Lease Owners
Following a referral by a neighbor, my wife and I engaged The Clark Law Firm to assist in a gas lease in Susquehanna County just as the cauldron was beginning to boil. We subsequently had the firm review two pipeline agreements. Our experiences were favorable.The gas field activity was very dynamic at the time and we ended up with offers from three gas companies and family members with different goals. Doug and Marceea were both professional and practical throughout the entire process. I feel that we could be poster children for many of the unique situations which the firm has chalked up to experience.Having over the years worked with different attorneys in a variety of legal issues, I’d remind every client that you are the employer and the product a law firm furnishes you is subject to your perusal and approval. Do your homework to the best of your ability and make sure you review every word and that it meets your expectations. And don’t hesitate to ask questions.While the criteria and intricacies of the “gas rush” in Pennsylvania continue to evolve, I can go to bed at night knowing that we achieved the best possible agreements, with the most benefits and protections that were available at the time. That’s a job well done and The Clark Law Firm fulfilled their roll admirably.
