Summary

I started Mitchell & Associates because I wanted to be able to do more for my clients. Up until that point I worked at a prestigious law firm representing big, corporate and insurance industry type clients. My job was to defend them at all cost, even when they were wrong. I did my job, and I did my job well. In 1999 I walked out of the Firm with one file, a case where my client was seriously hurt in a car accident, determined to practice law the way I wanted to and for the clients I wanted to. I was able to sit down behind my desk and take as much time as needed to learn a person’s case inside and out. I was able to find the details other attorneys would miss. I was able to make sure I did all I could to make sure my clients got what they were entitled to under the law. As my practice grew I had the opportunity to spend time handling many different types of cases, each with its own unique set of facts that had to be completely understood. Years later, after having represented families whose loved ones were mistreated in nursing homes, patients that were hurt when doctors were supposed to heal, and hundreds of people exposed to toxic mold in a run-down office building, my Firm stands ready to represent you and your loved ones. If you need an attorney to help you with your insurance dispute, case against a nursing home, on the job accident or any injury caused by someone else’s fault, please call me.
