About Ford Law Office: Your West Virginia Oil and Gas Attorney and More

William “Bill” Ford’s exposure to the oil and gas industry predates his education as a lawyer. Bill learned about the oil and gas drilling process while serving as a deckhand on offshore oilfield supply boats in the Gulf of Mexico out of Venice, Louisiana for two summers in college and law school.

Just a couple of years out of law school, Bill and Lisa assisted oil and gas developer clients with title searches and lease negotiations until OPEC dropped the price of oil in the spring of 1984, putting the oil and gas industry into chaos. Due in part upon the oil and gas experience, Bill was offered a position with the Fort Worth Regional Office of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission as an enforcement attorney.

Bill spent the next three years investigating and prosecuting securities law violations in connection with multimillion-dollar oil and gas investment programs. And Lisa spent the next 23 years with the U.S. Department of Justice’s Immigration and Naturalization Service before retiring therefrom in 2010.

Ford Law Office was opened in 2002, after attorney William Ford and his wife, attorney Lisa Furbee Ford, relocated to Clarksburg, West Virginia, Lisa having been raised in nearby Bridgeport.

Ford Law Office first located in the Goff Building in historic downtown Clarksburg in 2006. In November 2016, the firm relocated to the historic Bastable-Koblegaard House built in the 1850s and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Although Bill’s legal career shifted to other species of insurance, corporate and business litigation for several years, with the advent of the Appalachian Marcellus play in 2008, Bill and Lisa were ready to lend their experience to the royalty owner side of the oil and gas equation.

Today, the firm specializes in West Virginia Oil and Gas contract law, helping clients maximize financial and personal interests by fighting for the West Virginia Oil and Gas rights of property owners. Attorney Bill Ford also assists families in Florida and West Virginia with estate planning and estate litigation when disputes arise over property or assets.
