Where to Turn When You’re Too Hurt To WorkTM in New Orleans
No other place is like New Orleans. And no other people are like New Orleanians.
We’re a proud group. And at Mitchell & Associates, we believe in fighting for our neighbors when they’re struggling.
If an injury on the job has taken you off the job, workers’ compensation is supposed to be there to help you recover and move on with your life. But we’ve seen employers, insurance companies and lawyers stand in the way of people getting all the benefits they deserve.
That’s why we made it our mission to secure every resource we can for individual people in need. We’re a family firm, helping other families.
Dedicated to the People of New Orleans
You can tell when a lawyer has the right values to forcefully represent a regular, hardworking person like you. At Mitchell & Associates, we don’t stop trying to make our community better when we leave the office.
