  • J Rhea Tannehill Jr

    Mitchell Driskell and I have on opposing sides of several cases in litigation. Mitchell is forthright, honest and an excellent advocate on behalf of his clients. I believe that Mitchell is one of those attorneys that cares about his clients, and does not unnecessarily bill his time. I would recommend Mitchell if you are looking to hire an attorney for litigation purposes.
