More About Mitch

After a traumatic injury to his eye, he was forced to take time off from baseball. During that time off, he sharpened his academic skills and applied to law school in 2014. He was accepted into the inaugural class of UNT Dallas College of Law. At UNT, he received an academic scholarship and CALI award in Evidence. After passing the bar, Mitchell put up his spikes and hung out a shingle deciding to focus on a new passion—Representing catastrophically injured victims in personal injury cases. His passion for helping injured victims continues today. 

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  branched out on his own. His ability to describe mechanisms of harm to juries makes him a key attorney to have on your litigation team. His baseball background is an inestimable asset having consistent exposure to sports medicine and training.  In Texas, he has tried 17 civil jury cases to verdict with the majority as plaintiff’s verdicts. He is a warrior. He will face the toughest cases with an unwavering desire to pursue justice. He will work tirelessly on getting you compensation you deserve.
