Mr. Mitchel has been practicing law for approximately 30 years.  He has joined the firm as a managing partner of the Miami, Florida office.  His belief is achieving excellence in our industry requires collaboration among counsel, carriers and clients.  In each of his cases, he remains mindful of the goals of each of his constituents, the importance of maintaining open lines of communication, and the need for streamlined processes designed to allow all team members to fully participate.

He wakes up every day deeply appreciative for the trust invested in him by the carriers with whom we work and the clients who we serve.  He strives to honor that trust by dedicating myself to obtaining exceptional outcomes through scrupulous attention to detail, thorough and honest case evaluation, and a willingness to go the extra mile in every claim.

Nothing is more important than his clients knowing that their case is in the right hands.  Bringing decades of experience, providing legal expertise as a trial attorney, giving maximum effort to achieving outstanding results, and maintaining regular communications – all for a reasonable fee – serves as the foundation for that relationship.

In a career spanning more than three decades, nothing is more gratifying to him than the many clients who have told him that, although the case against them was unjust and the litigation process was laborious, they felt great comfort throughout because they were represented by an attorney who was always thoroughly prepared, possessed unique skills as an advocate, and who cared deeply about them, their case and its outcome. 

Mr. Mitchel is married with two adult sons and lives in Weston, Florida with his two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.  His greatest joy is spending time with his family and traveling.
