A Message from Founding and Managing Partner, Mark E. Minyard

Building a Great Place to Work: The Minyard Morris Mission

For many years, the central vision of Minyard Morris has been to create more than just a law firm, but a great place to work. A place where our team not only excels professionally but enjoys genuine job satisfaction. As the founding and managing partner, my personal goal has always been to contribute to each individual’s success, job satisfaction, and daily enjoyment at Minyard Morris.

Reflecting on the Pandemic and Our Firm’s Future

The pandemic was a time of reflection and decision-making for many, including myself and our firm. We witnessed numerous retirements and relocations, presenting us with a crossroad decision: continue with our successful and satisfying path or make a bold move. After considering our firm’s role and impact on our clients, I realized that our mission needed to expand – to offer our superior services to more people in Orange County.

Expanding Our Team to Serve More People

This realization led us to grow our team significantly. Since the onset of COVID-19, we have welcomed five outstanding lawyers, and our plans for expansion continue. Our goal is to serve more people effectively, and expanding our talented team is the key to achieving this.

Hiring Family Law and Civil Litigation Attorneys with Diverse Skills

We are committed to hiring family law attorneys who are passionate about handling a full caseload, including those who thrive in the courtroom as trial lawyers and those who prefer working in our office. Interestingly, our team also includes seven lawyers who were  civil litigators before joining our firm, showcasing the diversity of experience we value. We are interested in interviewing family law attorneys and also civil litigation lawyers who are rethinking their careers  and have a desire to explore family law and the difference that family law attorneys make in the lives of their clients on a daily basis. We have found that civil litigation is a perfect background for a career in family law, in that knowledge of the evidence code, the civil code, the code of civil procedure and discovery practice are fully translatable.
