ROCKY MOUNTAIN PARALEGAL ASSOCIATION
Oil and Gas Law
About our Presenter:
Simon is the managing attorney of Mountain States Energy Attorney & Advisors, PLLC d/b/a Tolbert Law Office, PLLC (“MSEA”). Originally started as a natural resources boutique law firm, the firm has expanded to include related general areas of law including: trust & estates, contracts, real property, and tort law.
Simon grew up in Texas and got into the oil and gas business coincidentally after running into an old friend from high school who worked for his uncle who worked as a crew manager for a rig. The next day they started together working as a landmen running title and negotiating leases in the Barnett Shale. Simon learned that if you have the right work ethic, organizational skills, and attention to detail anyone without any prior experience can likely have a long-term career in the oil and gas industry. Simon coupled his landman career with his service as a logistics officer in the United States Marine Corps Reserves. Simon deployment to Iraq in 2008 as a logistics officer for an infantry battalion, and as an unintended result broadened his education for practicing law to solve potential conflicts in the courtroom in a similar way to solve some of the complicated conflicts in a theater of war. Thereafter, he began using his law license in Denver working for a law firm based out of Houston and later another out of Salt Lake City. The decision to start a law firm was simple, “to provide the best representation for his clients.” Simon’s favorite axiom that he repeatedly reminds his clients is that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” especially in regard to legal proceedings.
