Mitch is dedicated to working hard and advocating fairly for his clients with the goal of making the community a safer place for everyone. The simple truth is that unless dangerous systems and people are held accountable when they hurt others, dangerous behaviors will continue to hurt all of us.
Mitch’s practice treats each case as though it will go to trial but also works hard to come to fair settlement agreements when possible.
Mitch takes all of his personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis so that his clients can pursue their injury claims regardless of their income level.
Mitch understands that most people do not want to take their case to trial. In injury cases, Insurance companies and other institutions are able to pay their attorneys large amounts of money in order to avoid taking responsibility and force injured parties to undergo invasive scrutiny during the trial process. These same powerful entities can also afford to pay for expensive witnesses to testify at trial, often blaming the victim or claiming that the victim is dishonest. This is intimidating for anyone.
Most jurors in personal injury cases never get to find out who is financing the litigation, how much insurance the parties have, or even whether the defendant has been involved in similar dangerous conduct in the past. Despite these challenges, Mitch focuses on obtaining justice in every case and does his best to help clients through the tough, but very important litigation process.
