My father, Dan M. Fergus, Sr. was an oil and gas attorney. I worked for him when I graduated from law school. He taught me about title issues including how to prepare a Drilling Title Opinion and Division Order Title Opinion. He was a marvelous mentor-since he had extensive experience. I attempted to emulate his incredibly successful work ethic. He was a lawyer’s lawyer and we have continued to follow his example.
