What Makes Minyard Morris Unique as an Orange County Family Law Firm?

While each of our clients is represented by a respected and experienced family law attorney, they also benefit from the firm’s robust collaborative team approach. The firm’s lawyers meet regularly, in person, three times weekly to analyze, evaluate and brainstorm the unique aspects of our clients’ cases. The analysis and strategy of our cases is impacted by the extensive and specialized experience of our 19 Orange County divorce lawyers.

We know when a case should be settled and when it should be tried. We have a “sense of urgency” to resolve our clients’ cases and we have a reputation for having the highest skills both at the negotiating table and in the courtroom.

Minyard Morris has limited its practice exclusively to family law matters filed in Orange County for over 47 years.  We proudly represent clients in dozens of Orange County cities from Seal Beach to Irvine to San Clemente.

Our team is comprised of 19 family law attorneys who have combined experience of almost 300 years and is the largest and one of the oldest Orange County based law firm who limits its practice exclusively to family law. We not only limit our practice to family law, we limit to matters file in Orange County.
