“Bucky” Duranti, Jr. Joins LGCR's Natural Gas Practice; New Office Opened In Morgantown

Lewis Glasser Casey & Rollins PLLC is pleased to announce that veteran natural gas lawyer R. P. “Bucky” Duranti, Jr. has joined the firm as a member and part of its growing natural gas practice. Bucky’s law colleague, Angela C. Ramsey, also is joining the firm as an associate. Bucky and Angela will bolster Lewis Glasser’s capabilities to meet continued growth from clients involved in natural gas drilling and production activities. We also are pleased to announce that Lewis Glasser has opened a north-central West Virginia office in the Morgantown area.

Bucky will be based in this new north-central office along with two other LGCR lawyers – Bernie Worley and Nathan Austrian – and other legal support staff. The north-central office is expected to expand significantly over the coming year. Ramsey will continue to work out of a Beckley location, and Mark Sadd, a member in the firm, will continue to oversee the firm’s mineral title and real estate activities.

The hiring of Bucky and Angela -- and the opening of a Morgantown office -- are part of Lewis Glasser’s strategy to expand its capabilities to meet the needs of existing clients and our growing list of clients with interests in north-central West Virginia. Bucky’s knowledge and experience will be a perfect fit for helping LGCR meet the needs of its expanding client base, particularly with acquisitions, natural gas title work, lease and mineral ownership matters and real estate/commercial transactions.
