AIPC Energy, LLC Case Summary

Case Summary:

This lawsuit was filed against AIPC Energy by mud operations workers that it paid using a “day rate pay plan, with no overtime premium, and that it had classified as independent contractors. Filed as a collective action, this case seeks to recover unpaid back overtime wages for the entire class of Solids Control Consultants, Mud Engineers and other similar workers employed by AIPC who were not paid time and a half for all hours worked in excess of forty per workweek.

AIPC is in the business of providing oil field personnel to operators and other oil field services companies in need of alternative project staffing for mud operations. It typically scheduled workers for 12 hour shifts up to 7 days per week, resulting in significant amounts of overtime for which workers did not receive time and a half their regular rate of pay.

The case seeks to recover unpaid back overtime wages for the three year period prior to filing, along with an equal amount for liquidated damages, plus attorneys’ fees and costs.

Client Reviews


A situation that involves attorneys is emotional - Mike Lore is an attentive listener and really helped me come to the terms of my situation. He used his understanding of the law to construct a case that was grounded in fact and skipped the needless 'finger-pointing' and 'he-said/she-said' back and forth. Mike's professionalism with me (the client) and the opposing attorney moved the case forward quickly with a successful result.

After talking to HR and trying to find answers to my questions about the overtime laws online, I was so confused. I contacted the firm and spoke to Stacy. She was so nice and took the time to review my pay stubs. She explained what the law requires and how it applied to my job. Turns out I do not have a case. Even though I didn’t have a case, she sent me a follow up email with even more information. So glad I called them.

We live in another state, but my husband's company sent him to work in Texas for 6 months. With the laws being completely different from our home state, it was nice to speak to a professional that could put us at ease and explain the laws to us.
