About Our Firm

About Cotton Bledsoe Tighe and Dawson, P.C.

In 1974, six attorneys in Midland, Texas, joined forces to establish a law firm that would provide quality service in legal representation to the oil and gas industry, financial institutions and other businesses and individuals in Midland and other areas of West Texas.

Today, we have around 40 attorneys and an office that utilizes the most current technologies to provide cost-efficient and highly effective legal services to our clients. We continue with our original mission of service, delivered with a friendly, team-oriented approach. We offer our clients creative, cost-effective, and common sense solutions to complex legal problems. Our clients appreciate receiving the level of service of a larger law firm within the atmosphere of a smaller firm.

A Local Law Firm With a Nationwide Client Base

From our offices in Midland — in the center of one of the major oil and gas centers of the Southwest — our attorneys provide legal services and litigation support to companies and individuals throughout Texas and across the nation. We take pride in our ability to simultaneously provide legal representation of the highest quality to our local community and travel as necessary to represent our clients' interests in litigation and transactions nationwide.

High Legal Achievement and Community Leadership

Our law firm is AV®-rated* under Martindale-Hubbell's peer review rating system, and our attorneys are leaders both professionally and in the community. More than 20 of our lawyers are certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in one or more areas of specialization including Oil, Gas, and Mineral Law; Estate Planning and Probate Law; Personal Injury Trial Law; Civil Trial Law; Farm and Ranch Real Estate Law; and Tax Law. We have numerous attorneys licensed to practice outside the state of Texas as well.

Over the years, many of our lawyers have been named by Texas ''Super Lawyers'' magazine as among the top five percent of attorneys in Texas. We have members who have served as chair of the State Bar of Texas Oil and Gas Section, State Bar committee members, Texas Young Lawyers Association directors, and on several statewide boards, committees and task forces.

Our attorneys are in demand as authors for legal publications and as speakers to industry and legal groups.

We have served the local school board, the local city council, as well as other local professional, charitable and civic organizations as officers, directors and volunteers.
