"Chad had the expertise or was quick to locate the expertise within or outside of his firm, was very responsive at all times, understood our business objectives relating to the litigation, and took costs into consideration. The integrity he projects reflected well on our company. I would strongly recommend J. Chad Mitchell as a strong litigator."
