Sealy Yates is a Christian literary agent with the Yates & Yates Literary Agency. Sealy says: “I am the senior partner at Yates & Yates, a firm that is the continuation of the one I founded October 1, 1969. After graduating from law school, I started my professional career as a lawyer with a small general practice law firm in Orange County. After a year, I decided that it would be much better for me and everyone else if I opened my own law office. Over the next 20 years I developed and operated a very successful business law practice. Part of my work during those years included intellectual property matters primarily related to copyright issues. I did a lot of work for Christian publishing houses, Christian authors and I had the privilege of doing the legal work to establish the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (“ECPA”), the trade association of Christian publishers. I then served ECPA as its general counsel for over 16 years.
In 1988 I became the first literary agent in the Christian publishing industry representing successful authors. I have now been representing Christian authors for so long that some have called me the “godfather” of Christian publishing. I now have the joy and privilege of having two of my sons as my partners in Yates & Yates. I have known since I was 17 that God had made me to be a Christian lawyer. However, I would never have guessed what an incredible life of ministry it would turn out to be, nor could I have had any idea that I would ever become an expert in book publishing or that I would lead the best literary agency in the world, to the glory of God.
My partners and I are blessed to have had my beautiful wife, Susan, as office manager for Yates & Yates since 1990. Susan is definitely the reason that I have been able to serve so many great and godly communicators, so successfully, and for so many years. I graduated from Baylor University with a Bachelors in Business Administration in 1965 and from UCLA School of Law with a Juris Doctor in 1968. It has been my joy and privilege to serve on the boards of directors for some of the most excellent and successful ministry organizations in the world since my first year in the practice of law, including, among others, Open Doors International, Insight for Living, Turning Point Ministries, Ransomed Heart Ministries, as well as the Pepperdine School of Law Board of Visitors. I have been married to Susan Proctor Yates since 1965. We have four amazing adult children, 3 sons and a beautiful daughter, and we have the most amazing 9 grandchildren God ever created.”
