Mauri Whitacre Hinterlong
Staff Attorney

Because of my knowledge of title defects and attention to detail, clients trust me to identify pivotal issues by thinking through problems from multiple angles and deliver the accuracy they need to advance projects with confidence.

Mauri Hinterlong focuses her practice in the oil and gas industry. She has extensive experience writing title opinions, which allowed her to hone her skill of researching the law as it pertains to each issue and explaining the legal issues and application of Texas oil and gas law in a concise, easily-digestible fashion. Immediately following law school, Mauri spent two years as a landman in East Texas giving her a unique perspective that clients value.

Along with oil and gas, she also has experience in commercial real estate as it pertains to the acquisition and divestiture of commercial properties.
