From the Bakken formation in North Dakota's Williston Basin to the Mancos Shale Oil Reserve in New Mexico, The Hustead Law Firm's attorneys have both a presence and a deep understanding of the types of liability scenarios its clients may face.
Patrick Hustead began his post-collegiate working career roughnecking on oil rigs, from land based rigs in Prudhoe Bay and the Brooks Range to platforms and drill ships in the Santa Barbara Channel. He has leveraged that knowledge into a successful oil and gas practice handling tort liability cases throughout the intermountain west, from common drilling rig accidents to oil field explosions and fires. He has tried a case to a federal jury involving a class action stockholders dispute arising out of the McElmo Dome Gas Formation in Colorado, one of World's largest known accumulations of nearly pure CO².
Please see the HLF Territory Map for an idea as to where we work. The Firm covers the entire Continental Divide from Canada to Mexico. Patrick Hustead is personally a member of the State Bars of North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Colorado. Other Firm members are licensed in New Mexico and California. We do not charge for travel time for the location of a case outside Colorado. We become the local law firm.
