Elizabeth “Becky” Miller


Becky has practiced exclusively in the firm’s oil, gas and energy practice since she joined the firm in 1981. She began by handling regulatory matters before the Railroad Commission of Texas. In the late 1980s Becky moved to oil and gas litigation when she joined just a handful of lawyers Board Certified in Oil, Gas and Mineral law who litigated oil, gas and energy law cases full time. In her career she has tried cases in North, East, South and West Texas, wherever wells are located. She has argued before appellate courts in Houston, Corpus Christi and San Antonio, the Texas Supreme Court and the 5th Circuit. Her practice has included all types of litigation arising out of the oil, gas and energy business (except tort claims for personal injury). She has represented operators, lessees, non-operating working interest owners and lessors. Becky has served as an adjunct professor at the University of Texas School of Law where she taught oil and gas law, and oil and gas leasing and regulation. Becky’s practice also includes work as a mediator and arbitrator, particularly in regard to oil and gas related cases.
