Craig Mitchell – Attorney at Law

Know Your Lawyer Before You Sign A Contract

What You Need To Know

You’ve already read your share of lawyer bios. That’s smart. Why? Because you are probably going through one of the most difficult times of your life. There’s a lot at stake, and you need to make sure you find someone you can trust to help you make sense out of all of the paper work, legal jargon and people pulling you in different directions. You may not know who to trust. Who to believe. Which way to turn.

You’re not alone. Many people have had to go through what you’re going through. The ones that did what you’re doing right now – doing your research, understanding your options and not falling for the slick ads and fast talk – probably made it through just fine (even if they lost some sleep along the way). You may have heard this before – you’ve come to the right place. You’ve taken the most important step you can make towards getting peace of mind. You’ve found a group of lawyers who want, can, and will help. My name is Craig Mitchell. I’m an attorney. I’m also a husband, father, neighbor, and friend. I’ve seen much and helped many. And I thank you for taking time to find out how I can help.

How I Got Here

I started Mitchell & Associates in 1999 because I wanted to be able to do more for my clients. Up until that point I worked at a prestigious law firm in downtown New Orleans representing big corporate and insurance industry type clients. My job was to defend them at all costs, even when I thought they were wrong. I did my job, and I did it well. But I didn’t like it. 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. I was able to sit down behind my desk and take as much time as I needed to learn a person’s case inside and out. I was able to find the details other attorneys might miss, and I was able to make sure I did all I could do to make sure my clients got what they were entitled to under the law.
