More About Mitch

After a traumatic injury to his eye, while playing baseball in Texas, he was forced to take time off from baseball. During that time off, he sharpened his academic skills by studying for the LSAT and applied to Law School in 2014. He was accepted into the inaugural class of UNT Dallas College of Law. There, he was a scholarship recipient, and top student in Evidence. Upon receiving his law license, Mitchell hung up his spikes and hung out his shingle deciding to focus on a new passion—Representing catastrophically injured victims in personal injury cases. His passion for helping injured people shows through in his representation. 

He worked at several high-volume law firms early in his legal career. After working at one of the most high- volume trial firms in Texas, Mitchell wanted to branch out on his own. His ability to describe mechanisms of harm to juries makes him a key attorney to have on any litigation team. His baseball background is an inestimable asset having consistent exposure to sports medicine and training.  In Texas, he has tried 19 civil jury cases to verdict. He is a warrior. He will face the toughest cases with an unwavering desire to pursue justice. He will work tirelessly on getting you peace of mind, and compensation you deserve.
