Paul B. Miner


Paul B. Miner received his juris doctor, cum laude, from Chapman University School of Law, where he served on the Moot Court Honor Board, the Mock-Trial Honor Board and the Alternative Dispute Resolution Honor Board. Mr. Miner also served as a Staff Editor of Nexus: Chapman's Journal of Law and Public Policy.

Since joining Barritt Smith LLP in January 2009, Mr. Miner has focused his practice on representing both employees and employers throughout California in a wide variety of employment-related actions, including those in state and federal court and before administrative agencies. Mr. Miner also frequently advises management clients on a wide variety of issues including wage and hour issues, reductions in force, leaves of absence, discipline and termination matters and general management matters including the development of workplace policies, employee handbooks and employment-related agreements.

Mr. Miner has successfully defended employers in wrongful termination and employment discrimination litigation, including sexual harassment, race, age, national origin, gender and disability discrimination. Mr. Miner has also represented dozens of employees over the years and he has developed a reputation of being a reasonable, but aggressive and highly skilled litigator.  His experience has led to the negotiation of many successful resolutions for his clients.  These resolutions have often been achieved after hotly contested litigation. 

Mr. Miner is admitted to practice before the courts of the State of California and the U.S. District Court for the Central and Northern Districts of California.

Mr. Miner speaks Portuguese and Cape Verdean Creole.  He enjoys skim boarding with his kids and cheering them on at weekend soccer tournaments.  He is a master homemade pizza maker and enjoys time spent at home with his wife and children.  He is the only brother (of 3)  in his family not to have become a police officer.  His only sister is an editor of novels and biographies.
