    Client Comments

    "Besides being knowledgeable, beyond anything I ever expected, Jeffrey Mitchell was compassionate and understanding. He always listened attentively and with interest when I had reservations, a question, or just needed something clarified for my own understanding. He always made me feel a part of my case, not like he was running things no matter what I was feeling or what my opinion might be. He gave me the greatest respect. He understood why our family felt this lawsuit was necessary and he supported us in every way possible. I never sent him an e-mail that an almost immediate response did not appear in my mailbox. He really amazed everyone in our family. He gives lawyer jokes a bad name. He is the personification of what ALL lawyers should be."
