About Our 30-Year History

Payne & Fears was founded in 1992 in Orange County, California, by attorneys James L. Payne and Daniel F. Fears. The two young attorneys shared an entrepreneurial spirit and a successful experience working together at a large national law firm. They decided to team up and establish a new, more nimble law firm in Orange County, leveraging their Big Law backgrounds and pairing high-quality business representation with the agility of a smaller firm. Right out of the gate, the firm sought to establish long-standing client relationships and foster a culture of collaboration.

After losing sleep over the intimidating sound of their combined surnames, they tossed a coin to decide whose name would come first in the firm’s name, and the law firm of Payne & Fears LLP was born. The novelty of this law firm’s name was wild enough to attract attention from late night talk show hosts. Jay Leno once quipped, “Why, here’s a frightening law firm. These are not people you want to meet in court!” Today, as our tagline indicates, “Our name gets attention. Our attorneys get results.”
