John R. Caraway

Upon graduating from Texas Tech University School of Law in 2010, Mr. Caraway began his career in the oil and gas industry working as an independent petroleum landman in the Permian Basin.  As a field landman, he managed a variety of projects, ranging from title research and due diligence, to leasing and curative, gaining valuable experience in the Permian Basin.  In 2012, Mr. Caraway joined the Fort Worth law firm of Brashier Crosby where he led a team of experienced West Texas attorneys and rendered hundreds of title opinions for the acquisition and development of, and payment of proceeds from, oil and gas properties throughout the Permian Basin, Oklahoma and North Dakota.  Additionally, Mr. Caraway provided general legal counsel to oil and gas clients, including handling ad hoc legal requests and generating sophisticated lease amendments, operating agreements, purchase and sale agreements, and the like. His experience has exposed him to intricate and multilayered legal issues with upstream to downstream implications, involving complex mineral, royalty and leasehold ownership, pooling and allocation wells, JOAs and participation agreements, Indian titles, and easements and surface use agreements.  Mr. Caraway has also been involved in the exciting process of locating and acquiring mineral and royalty interests in the Permian Basin and providing legal assistance through transaction closure. In March of 2018, Mr. Caraway partnered with longtime friend and colleague, Adam Abert, in the founding of Abert Caraway, PLLC.  Mr. Caraway enjoys spending time with his beautiful wife, Stephanie, and his three fun-loving children, Truitt, London and Carter.  They enjoy skiing, hunting, golf and exploring the outdoors together.
