Gaston & Strain was founded in 2002 by W. Clayton Gaston and Wesley B. Strain. Our law practice is comparable in quality and complexity to that of the largest firms in the nation. We represent public and closely held companies, individuals and families locally and throughout the nation, with practice in the following areas:


Mineral leasing, farmouts, farmins, acquisitions and divestitures, joint operating agreements, exploration agreements, participation agreements, representation of service companies

Civil Litigation

Commercial litigation in all Texas and federal courts, arbitration, mediation

Corporations, Partnerships and other Business Organizations

Formation, mergers, dissolution, contracts

Real Estate:

Acquisition and financing of shopping centers, office buildings, farms, ranches; development and leasing of real property


Representation of creditors and borrowers in a variety of secured and unsecured and securitized transactions

Estate Planning, Probate:

Wills, powers of attorney, trusts, family limited partnerships

Non-profit Organizations:

Although our practice is sophisticated and our clients are diverse, as a small firm, we believe we are better able to respond to our clients’ needs. Close working relationships with our clients, as well as an appreciation of their business goals and styles, enables us to quickly and effectively respond to their business opportunities.
