As it turned out, because of the details of my [first ever] arrest, there was not much Scott, or any attorney for that matter, could do to get me off the hook for this misdemeanor DUI (besides bribing the judge or something like that). He explained the details of the law to me, but I didn't always understand everything which, probably isn't his fault, since I have very little education in law. He did everything I hired him for but, in hindsight, I might have chosen a cheaper lawyer considering that there was nothing that could be done to get me off the hook. The judge hasn't ruled yet so maybe I will get the minimum penalty instead of the maximum which will be well worth the (relatively low) premium I paid for him.
Two and a half months after my DUI arrest, I have new, unrelated and different misdemeanor criminal charges against me that may be more serious and hopefully don't affect the penalties in my DUI case. I would like to work with him on this new case if the price is right and he thinks he is the best person for the job. It also depends on the timeliness of his response since the court date is very soon.
Probably the only criticism of his business I can allege is that a receptionist for his (after-hours) answering service is, in my opinion and another person's opinion) very rude, but I've only recently let him know about it and hopefully he takes care of that.

I am very pleased with the outcome of the matter that Mr. Mitchell handled for our family. He came highly recommended to us, and did not let our family down in his representation. We were pleased with the outcome of the results and were very pleased with the way he handled the case for us, his time spent dealing with the issues, and his thoroughness and knowledge in handling the matters at hand. He kept us well informed at all times on what was going on in our case. He was always very up front with us on what he perceived could be the worst scenario, but always assured us that he would try to negotiate a better outcome, and he did not let us down in this regard. We have used him on two occasions and would use him again if needed to. His office staff was also very courteous and kind when dealing with us at all times.

To keep this short, I felt as though he did not care about my case at all. I did not feel that he did anything for me that I could not have done on my own. Waste of time and money, and expertise.
