    Medical Malpractice Attorney Jeffrey S. MitchellDetermination, hard work, resourcefulness, creativity, bravery and boundless energy have been the hallmarks of Jeff Mitchell’s life and existence in his accomplished career as a lawyer. If you ask those who know him the best, those are words that you will often hear when he is described.

    Jeff puts those attributes to work on a daily basis on behalf of all of his clients. From the children injured during labor and delivery, to the spouses grieving over the loss of their loved ones, to those who suffer from a life permanently affected by a brain injury, Jeff understands their pain and exactly what it takes to bring some measure of justice to right their wrongs.

    His accomplishments as a medical malpractice lawyer are matched by few—particularly for a lawyer with a lot of time left on the clock. In his very busy career, he has already:

    • attained two record-setting verdicts,
    • secured innumerable six, seven and eight figure settlements
    • and helped shaped the future of the law as it pertains to medical malpractice in California.

    He is a frequently sought after speaker on issues pertaining to:

    • jury selection,
    • cross-examination,
    • argumentation,
    • expert witness utilization
    • and psychology of trial practice in California and throughout the country.

    Jeff’s work on behalf of medical malpractice victims and their families has been recognized by many.

    He is annually listed as a Northern California Super Lawyer, one of San Francisco’s Top Attorneys, one of California’s Top 100 trial lawyers and is rated annually by his peers as one of the Best Lawyers in America. Jeff was also honored as San Francisco’s Trial Lawyer of the Year which is annually given by the San Francisco Trial Lawyer’s Association.

    His work has been covered and chronicled by dozens of digital, print, radio and television media outlets throughout the country. A testament to his work and reputation lies in the fact that many of his cases are referred to him by his adversaries—doctors, defense lawyers, insurance executives; the very people he faces on the other side of the table.

    In his spare time, Jeff enjoys running, skiing, dining with friends, baseball, playing tennis (with limited success), studying British poetry and coaching youth sports. He has two young sons, Benjamin and Maxwell.

    "In over 25 years of practice on the defense side of malpractice cases, Jeff Mitchell is the attorney I fear most. He takes very good cases. Jeff has the medicine and the applicable literature down cold. He is without a doubt the best cross-examiner I have ever seen. I have paid his clients a lot of money over the years."
