Does anyone have a phone # for the Real Estate department or Right-of-Way easement group at AT&T?

Right of ways are controlled by your local government, either city or county. The size and placement of easements aren't controlled by any utility.
I'm looking at an easement given to SouthWestern Bell (now AT&T) in 1952. I have secured hundreds of easements on behalf of utilities in the last few years. No government entity was involved in any of these easements.
Don't know what to tell you, that's who controls utility easements, it's not the utility companies. If they had their way they'd be a heck of a lot wider and more prevalent than they are and it wouldn't take months to have them issued. So if you've secured hundreds of easements as you say than you have the inside track on how to do it.
Still hoping to find contact info for someone within AT&T's Real Estate or Right-of-Way group.
Those groups don’t interact with the public in my experience.
Constructive, may I ask you, if AT&T wanted to obtain an easement in Texas, then someone representing AT&T would have to contact the land owner. Any idea who would act in that role?
They contact the municipality in charge. Then the municipality contacts the property owner.
What exactly are you trying to accomplish?
I have a right-of-way easement granted from an individual to SouthWestern Bell in 1952. The easement is no longer being used. The poles have been removed sometime in the past. I have another outfit that wants to cross that right-of-way, but they aren't comfortable doing so unless AT&T releases the 1952 easement.
So, I am hoping to get a release of that easement from AT&T.
