Teresa A. Minnich


In any dispute, it’s my goal to provide legal knowledge and analysis that empowers clients to make intelligent, practical, and principled decisions about their professional careers and the future of their businesses.

My Background

As a member of the firm’s litigation team, I focus my practice on the resolution of business disputes, with an emphasis on the defense of medical service providers. I have defended physicians in medical malpractice disputes, and assisted physicians in the resolution of contract disputes.

I also frequently represent individuals, business owners, and business entities in a variety of civil disputes, including:

  • estate and trust litigation
  • business disputes arising from breach of contract
  • breach of promissory note litigation
  • restrictive covenants
  • breach of fiduciary duty
  • defamation
  • alleged employment violations

To fully advocate for clients who are involved in litigation matters, I readily immerse myself in the medical science (for my healthcare clients), or the relevant industry conditions for matters across other business sectors. I welcome the analytic and strategic challenge of applying legal statutes and precedent to unique facts and circumstances. Through that approach, I work to identify practical, effective solutions for my clients that allow them to return to the business of their business.
