A True Expert1
Joe was fabulous! Joe did remarkable work for me with my case. I was very pleased and pleasantly surprised with the outcome he got me. I would highly recommend Joe to anyone facing a criminal charge, and I will use him in the future for any legal service I need. Joe is a true expert, he knows the in's and out's of the Philadelphia court system and I felt very comfortable going to court with him.

Helped me recover after my car accident!
Joe was a wonderful and courteous attorney! He helped me through every step of way, from making sure I was treating and recovering properly to explaining the PIP application process and handling the incessant calls from insurance claims adjusters. I would absolutely recommend him and will use him in the future.

He's on the Money!!
Joe really dug in deep for my personal injury case. I was out of work for months and quite literally had no idea what to do. Joe was there every step of the way to educate me and to provide me with the best service I could ask for. When the case settled I was overwhelmed with the sum Joe was able to fetch. I'm really glad I picked up the phone and called!

In a league of his own
Attorney Joseph S. Mitchell is hands down the go-to lawyer for a personal injury case. I had visited Attorney Mitchell's office in hopes of finding a lawyer I could rely on to win me a compensation payment that justified the pain and suffering I had gone thru with my case. If there is one lawyer you would want to give a call, I would recommend it to be Attorney Joseph Mitchell. He is a Harvard AND Stanford grad, so if there is anyone that you should feel confident and comfortable with to win you your case, it is Joe Mitchell!!! I would refer all of my friends, family, neighbors and complete strangers to his offices if they were looking for a lawyer to defend them in any sort of matter.

not obama but yes he can!
I never wrote a review for anyone, wow this sounds like a commercial. It doesn't matter for Joe I'd do anything. I came to him facing a drug charge because I was with someone that had drugs. The put me in cuffs threw me up against the car and then shoved me in. It was crazy because I never felt that much hurt in my life. Not only physically but mentally, like how could I be hurt by the people that I trusted to protect me and my community? Well Joe took my case. He showed me respect, said I could trust him, not only was he a lawyer but he was a consular for me. He said " David not only am I going to win your case but I'm going to see to it that we get you back in school". As a man of his word, we won the case. I'm now going to CCP this year after almost three years out of school, and I have a clean record. Would I recommend Joe? NO! That's not good enough. I be willing to tell the world, go on tv, and demand that they get Joe! He is a good person what better to represent someone in court.(plus the 20 years of work don't hurt)
