Company Description

At Jeter Law Firm, our practice is as diversified as the rural regions that we serve. From large commercial operations to family farms; from complex estate planning to simple wills; and from big oil to independent operators, we offer representation with exceptional, client-centered service. Successful oil and gas operators know the myriad of legal pitfalls that loom with every project. Jeter Law Firm’s experienced oil and gas attorneys provide a spectrum of services to help get projects up and running, including title examination, drilling opinions, document drafting, joint operating agreements, lease assignments, and regulatory opinions and assistance. When necessary, our attorneys can also litigate if things do not work out as planned.

Partner Tyler Turner has an extensive background in agricultural and mineral law, focusing his practice primarily in oil and gas. His passion for the oil and gas industry took hold when he returned to Kansas as a landman researching mineral ownership and lease availability in 2008. That passion led him to Washburn University School of Law, where he earned his law degree and served as an adjunct instructor. Tyler is a frequent presenter to bar association groups on the many problems and issues of mineral ownership and title examinations. He represents oil and gas producers in all aspects of exploring for, producing, selling, and transporting oil and gas. Tyler is admitted to practice in Kansas and Nebraska.

Partner Michael Baxter practices in several areas of law, including real estate, probate, and civil litigation, with a focus in oil and gas law. Michael's representation in the oil and gas areas includes not only representation of operators, but also landowners, oil and gas suppliers and contractors, as well as mineral interest holders. Michael is admitted to practice in Kansas, Nebraska, and Colorado.

Tyler and Michael are both members of KIOGA, the Wichita Association of Petroleum Landmen, and the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation.

Jeter Law Firm has served Kansans for more than 80 years; the firm includes six attorneys and has offices in Hays, Stockton, Plainville and Wichita, Kansas.
