    THE Mitchell Leeds, LLP GUARANTEE

    Peace of Mind

    A lawyer's success and business used to depend upon their work and reputation in the community. A Law Practice has become multi-jurisdictional, many law firms have emphasized expensive, templated advertising.
    At the Mitchell Leeds, LLP we believe that the true assessment of a lawyer's skill, ethics, dependability, and effectiveness is measured by their clients’ testimonials. We have been blessed to receive positive feedback from some of our clients and are happy to share it with you here.

    “I have known Jeff for many years, both personally and professionally. As a fellow trial lawyer, I wholeheartedly recommend Jeff in all areas of personal injury and wrongful death, particularly for medical malpractice cases. Jeff has a vast knowledge of medicine and has the ability to present complicated medical issues in an understandable manner to a jury or arbitrator. He is one of the best lawyers I know in trial because he competently thinks and reacts on his feet when confronted with the inevitable surprises of litigation. He is a real fighter for the injured.”

    “When an attorney opposes a case in which Jeff Mitchell is representing the plaintiff, he or she must expect the unexpected. Jeff is insightful, relentless, fearless, and aggressively committed to his clients. I know Jeff as an adversary, but I would not hesitate to refer my closest family members and friends to him for representation in a personal injury claim. He is, simply put, one of the best trial lawyers I know.”
