Craig Mitchell

You’re smart to be taking the time to read lawyer bios like this one. Why? Because you probably are experiencing one of the most difficult times of your life. You have a lot at stake.

You need to find someone you can trust to make sense of all of the workers’ compensation paperwork, legal jargon and people pulling you in different directions. You may not know who to believe, who to trust, which way to turn.

You’re not alone. Many people have gone through what you’re going through. The ones who did what you’re doing right now – doing your research,understanding your options and not falling for the slick ads and fast talk – probably made it through just fine (even if they lost some sleep along the way).

You’ve taken the most important step toward getting some peace of mind. You’ve found a group of lawyers who can and will help.

My name is Craig Mitchell. I’m an attorney. I’m also a husband, father, neighbor and friend. I’ve seen much and helped many. And I thank you for taking time to find out how I can help you.

You’re going through something that is complicated, confusing and has consequences that can impact the rest of your life. Between me and my wife, ATTORNEY KIANA MITCHELL., we have four decades of legal experience.

CALL US. We’ll talk about how to get the benefits, compensation and results you deserve so you can move forward with your life.

How I Got Here

Before I started Mitchell & Associates, I worked at a prestigious law firm in downtown New Orleans. I represented big corporate and insurance industry clients.

My job was to defend them at all costs, even when I thought they were wrong. I did my job, and I did it well. But I didn’t like it. In 1999, I walked out of the firm with one file, a case where my client was seriously hurt in a car accident. I was determined to practice law the way I wanted to, making a real difference for clients who need help.

I was able to sit down behind my desk and take as much time as I needed to learn a person’s case inside and out. I found the details other attorneys might miss. I made sure I did all I could to get my clients what they were entitled to under the law.
