Deane Minor began his career as a private practitioner in 1984 alongside Tom Tuohy, with whom he worked for 24 years. In the first decade of their partnership Deane worked in family law, estate planning/settlement, and adoption law. While in partnership with Tom, Deane diversified his practice to include real estate and business law; two areas Tom worked in extensively. After Tom passed away in 2007, Deane and Kara Kruse began sharing office space and collaborating on projects. On April 1, 2008, Deane and Kara formed Tuohy Minor Kruse PLLC, including Tom's surname in his memory.
Before forming Tuohy Minor Kruse, Kara practiced law in Spokane, working in Indian gaming law in California, and ran a solo practice in Everett from 1997 to 2007. Renee DeFreece has worked with Deane and Kara since the start of Tuohy Minor Kruse PLLC. Melanie Griffin joined the firm in fall 2011 after having worked on several cases with Tuohy Minor Kruse.
In March 2014, Tuohy Minor Kruse expanded its practice to include a satellite office in downtown Mount Vernon.
