Edmond, Oklahoma 73013
Started two companies dealing with the public every day negotiating oil and gas leases, settling surface damages, expert witness testimony, city permits, seismic permits, BLM permits, right of way and title curative. Work without much supervision needed. Ninety percent of the business I have gotten over the years has been referral from other clients. If you have a smaller project, you can give it to me and I can handle it start to finish. Strong sales and communications skills, with follow through needed to close deals, without being to pushy.
