SD&M attorneys John Hicks and Olga Kobzar successfully represented a royalty owner in an appeal involving competing claims to a mineral estate based on adverse possession, statute of frauds, and estoppel by deed. Their client had represented himself pro se in the lower courts but after the opposing party filed a petition for review to the Supreme Court of Texas, Hicks and Kobzar agreed to represent the client through the Texas Supreme Court Pro Bono Program.
