My guest today is Jourdanton-based attorney, Trace Blair. Trace is an Aggie alum, graduate of Texas Tech University School of Law, and a partner at Wigington Rumley Dunn & Blair. He practices in a number of areas, including agricultural law, oil and gas law, and catastrophic injury litigation.
He has drafted agreements for numerous landowners who want to allow others to hunt on their property and even paid for college by guiding hunts.
We discuss a number of issues to consider, including thoughts on whether hiring an attorney to draft a license is good practice, the difference between leases and licenses, key terms to include in a lease, and liability issues and waivers.
Trace offered up several great restaurant recommendations. He says the best high-end dining experience around is Bohannan's on Houston Street in San Antonio. The same chef owns Peggy's on the Green in Boerne, Texas. Lastly, if you ever find yourself in Trace's hometown of Charlotte, Texas, he says Galindo's is the place to go for good Mexican food.
