Trusted Legal Guidance

Charles G. DeMakis established his law firm to help his clients facing various legal issues and problems. For 15 years, individuals and businesses throughout Minot and North Dakota rely on his legal services in business planning, commercial and real estate transactions and banking.

The past several years have seen increased economic activity in North Dakota when it comes to oil, gas and mineral rights. The "boom" that North Dakota has experienced has required our law firm to place more of an emphasis on the complex laws that govern the energy industry.

Specific aspects of this ever-changing area of the law include the following:

  • Division order drilling title opinions
  • Probate
  • Mineral leasing
  • Lease negotiations
  • Mineral title curative

Combining experience and in-depth knowledge, specifically drilling title expertise, the founder of DeMakis Law, PLLC, represents clients in hundreds of legal matters. He has also developed positive, long-lasting business and legal relationships with oil, gas and mineral professionals throughout North Dakota.

Additional legal needs arise beyond drilling, leasing and title work. The significant amounts of money generated by rights purchasing and drilling activities have led to estate planning and wealth management needs that require the attention of a seasoned lawyer. At DeMakis Law, PLLC, our lawyer also represents clients in related estate planning matters involving mineral trusts, revocable living trusts, health care directories and powers of attorney, call 701-838-2080 today.
