My divorce was a little different as I was military stationed overseas and my (now ex) wife was in Florida. Joanna handled this divorce flawlessly, making sure what certain military allowances should and should not be considered for the final judgement. The way she handled herself in court was impressive, to say the least. I would definitely recommend her to anyone in a similar situation.
I was a client of hers and its was an awful experience. She allowed the opposing counsel to degrade and say awful things about me without any proof until the judge had to act as my attorney. Just bad bad bad, all around. I would ask for a public defender instead if I had to do it all over again. Please do not waste your money. Now I have an attorney worth every penny.
Back in June 2012, I contacted miss Joanna Mitchell by phone free 45 mins consultation. After in our good conversation, I hired her as my legal attorney since. Until now I am still using her as my attorney for the second time for "child support modification".
She is very friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, understanding and very professional with her work. Her price also is not bad. I would highly recommend her to every one . Excellent job! Keep up the good work.
Joanna is a very thoughtful, fair and knowledgeable attorney, she handled my divorce and still represents me on an as needed basis when situations arise. She is very professional, and walked me through the whole process, explaining things in a way that I could easily understand, she was very diligent in protecting my rights and ensuring a fair and balanced settlement, she provided me with excellent counsel when I was unsure on how to handle certain aspects of my case, so that I could make the best decisions for my particular circumstances. Joanna made a very difficult time much easier to coup with so that I could move on with my life. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of the services that she provides, she didn't encourage confrontational situations just so she could rack up more billable hours, she is more about getting in done as efficiently and fairly as possible.
MS. Mitchell is an excellent attorney. I contacted her by phone when my divorce initially began. I wasn't sure what to do because this was my first time being involved in anything like this. She spent 45 minutes on the phone with me, giving advice, even after I told her I wasn't going to be able to afford her. I later hired her and she was very knowledgeable and meticulous in her methods. I would recommend her services to anyone. I felt as though I had a friend sitting next to me in the courtroom.
Outstanding job in what she does. Very knowledgeable and understanding. Never failed to inform me of anything. Highly recommend her to anyone....
This attorney represented herself well upon consultation and initial visit. Once the retainer was paid, the communication became less proactive and no longer acted as a guide throughout the divorce process. The communication came more as a reaction to questions I had, often times after feeling like I was left in the dark about the status of my case. Subsequently, this attorney did not even notify me that the final judgement of my case had been finalized and ordered until I found out through my ex, 15 days after being finalized, where I emailed this attorney and she stated she had been busy with family issues and indeed the judgement had been issued. She promptly notified me via email that her services to me had been fulfilled and our business had ended.
I am so thankful for having Attorney Mitchell by my side from beginning to end. She is the only lawyer that truly gets it (and I have had a few in the past that clearly didn’t). She is a “Team Player” all around! A client will never feel that they have lost ALL control of their case with Attorney Mitchell. When hiring an Attorney to represent you, please consider hiring Attorney Johanna Mitchell. I am proud to say that I did and will again if need be in the future.
Joanna I a fighter. If you want an attorney that looks at your problems and can see a reasonable solution and is willing to work her hardest to make it happen then this is the attorney you want. I can even say that when she sees an injustice she strives even harder to make it right for you. She takes the right of the children personally. She is awesome. I just wish she would have been the first attorney I hired in Florida.
Joanna helped me with my divorce. She was always there answering my e-mail and phone calls and always had a great attitude and professional work ethics. She knows her work very well!
