|Comment||This was a very complicate question and Marsha was extremely patient and understanding as I attempted to explain everything. She clearly explained why hiring a landman would be the most cost effective way to resolve this issue and even proceeded to guide me through the process of finding someone who would be qualified to help. By including this, she sketched out a plan of action that will save time and additional research.|
