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

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 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 to his 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.

Ford Law Office was opened in 2002, after attorney William Ford, relocated to Clarksburg, West Virginia.

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 was ready to lend his 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.
