About Thomas

Learn Thomas’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Probate
    I routinely conduct dependent and independent estate administrations as well as heirship proceedings in Harris County and the surrounding counties.

  2. Oil and gas
    I routinely perform title and transactional work related to the oil and gas industry for large corporations as well as for private landowners.

  3. Estate planning
    I routinely draft wills, powers of attorney, hipaa releases, and other estate planning documents.

  4. Wills and living wills
    I routinely draft wills, powers of attorney, hipaa releases, and other estate planning documents.

I am a proud graduate of the University of Texas School of Law and am Board Certified in Oil, Gas and Mineral law by the TBLS. I specialize in oil and gas title and transactional matters and routinely work with large oil and gas companies on complex mineral title issues. I also consult with private landowners regarding their mineral and real property interests.

My wills, estates and probate practice involves estate planning and the drafting of wills. I routinely conduct heirship proceedings, and independent and dependent estate administrations. I excel at deciphering complex, multigenerational intestacy issues due to my extensive oil and gas title experience. 

When not in the office, you can find me fly fishing in New Mexico and Colorado, spending time with my beautiful wife, Kathleen, or walking our two toy poodles, Teddy and Beau.

Oil and gas Attorney | Sep 28
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"TC Turner is a talented, thoughtful, focused, detail oriented, and skilled attorney with unimpeachable ethics. TC is a passionate attorney who is dedicated to his clients. He is also very easy to work with. My probate and estate planning practice often intersects with oil & gas law, and as such, I have hired TC several times to work with me and my clients on a variety of oil & gas matters. Each time I worked with TC has been such a positive experience. TC’s billing is also very competitive and surprisingly lower than other attorneys I have worked with in the past (a real plus for any prospective client looking for a reasonably priced attorney!). For these reasons, I wholeheartedly endorse TC Turner for any legal matter involving to oil & gas, whether in Texas, New Mexico or Louisiana."
