In 1983 with only three attorneys, two secretaries and a part-time real estate abstractor, the vision of Tom Minor, III became a reality with the opening of a small law firm in Dalton, Georgia. By the end of 1985, the firm had welcomed Bill Bell and John Neal, and the professional corporation of Minor, Bell & Neal, P.C. was formed. The name has remained constant over the years; however the firm has continued to grow.


Tom Minor, III is now deceased, but his son, his grandson, and 11 other attorneys make up the Minor, Bell & Neal team.

Minor, Bell and Neal's attorneys are known throughout northwest Georgia, Chattanooga and beyond, not only for continuing the firm's tradition of legal excellence in their practice areas of Business Law, Domestic Relations, Elder Law, Employment Law, Government, Health Care, Litigation, Real Estate, Risk Management, and Wills Trusts Estates, but also for their committed service to their clients and communities.  With over 200 years combined experience among 12 attorneys, the current Minor, Bell & Neal team, like the firm's founders, is recognized for providing expertise, leadership and guidance both within and without the legal profession.
