Alan Huntress Minter, JD, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Lawyers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the legal field.
An award-winning attorney with more than four decades of professional experience, Mr. Minter possesses expertise in legal matters of historical preservation. His work has led him to achieve an Award of Excellence by the American Indian Law Section of the State Bar of Texas, distinction in the Self-Storage Hall of Fame and appointment by the U.S. President with a U.S. Associate Government Appeal Agent Certificate of Appreciation. Driven by a dynamic interest in the law and ethical motivation to do the right thing, Mr. Minter has spent many years advocating for the historical preservation of Texas Indians. Since the early 1960s, he has represented the State of Texas and local historical organizations in preservation matters and the Tigua and Alabama-Coushatta Indians in their land claims. For this transformational work, he became the Tribal Counsel for the Alabama-Coushatta Tribes of Texas following the death of the Honorary Price Daniel (Governor of Texas 1957-1963) and he was inducted as an honorary member of the Tribe in December 1989. Mr. Minter’s professional publications include “The Tigua Indians of the Pueblo de Ysleta del Sur, Volume XLV,” published within the West Texas Historical Association Yearbook and “Preserving Your Historical Legislation,” published as a part of the Texas Historical Commission Reference Series.
Mr. Minter has been in private practice since establishing his career in 1971. In doing so, he has been able to curate a law firm that offers a range of services for general matters for a large clientele in the Fredericksburg, Texas, region. He has demonstrated success in real estate, probate, elder law, divorce, civil and criminal cases. A fellow of the Texas Bar Foundation, Mr. Minter has been very involved in his professional community over the years. He was a vice chairman and member of the historical preservation and easement committee on real property for the American Bar Association, as well as member of its probate and law section. Additionally, he sat on the board of directors and chaired the estate planning and probate law section of the Travis County Bar Association. Mr. Minter continues to support his professional community through his memberships with the State Bar of Texas, the Sheriff’s Association of Texas, the Texas Old Forts and Missions Restoration Association, the Old Trail Drivers Association, the State Association of Texas Pioneers, and Sons of the Republic of Texas.
Mr. Minter was initially on track to become a physician like his father; however, upon taking an elective course in law, he was inspired to establish a legacy for himself in the legal field. A graduate of the University of Texas, he earned a Bachelor of Arts in 1962 followed by a JD in 1965. Shortly thereafter, he became admitted to practice law in Texas and in front of the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Tax Court, the U.S. Court Claims, the U.S. Court of Military Appeals, the U.S. Court of Customs and Patent Appeals, the fifth circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals and the U.S. District Court for the northern, western, eastern and southern districts of Texas. When asked about his success, Mr. Minter shares that his integrity and professionalism allowed him to set a reputation of excellence for himself. He also states that he comes from a generation where a handshake is as meaningful as a legal document. Mr. Minter has always kept his word on every handshake he has given in his professional career. Looking ahead, he intends to continue in his professional excellence as an attorney while seeking opportunities to make a lasting impact on his industry.
