Mary A. Mr. Mitchell is an excellent employment lawyer. Ignore the fake negative reviews. Mr. Mitchell was hired for my employment case in state government. He responded quickly. We met for a business lunch. He is very articulate and thorough in his interview and review of your documents. He quickly contacted my employer in writing and is handling the matter. I have not had any more harassment at my job to date. In fact, my employer has tried to offer me a promotion. For Your Information (FYI): The negative reviews are from fake clients. 1. Real clients don’t make “inquiries” when they contact a lawyer. That’s not how the legal business works. 2. Real clients pay money for a consultation fee to meet with the lawyer. 3. Real clients sign a retainer agreement and pay a retainer fee for representation. 4. Fake/Broke clients don’t want to pay for legal services. 5. Google and some other sites allow anyone to make reviews without proof that the person actually hired the lawyer. So the sites can’t be trusted. 6. Fake reviewers are trying to blackmail my lawyer for money. Not going to happen. 7. Don’t believe the fake reviews, Mr. Mitchell is a great lawyer!

Mr. Mitchell took on my case which was against Howard University Graduate School. He was able to present a position strong enough to minimize the politically motivated and destructive bullying and threats from administrators meant to disqualify me thus allowing me to complete my program.

Great Attorney
In April of 2019. I hired Mr. Mitchell for a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. I was able to discharge nearly $50,000 in debt. Mr. Mitchell did an excellent job. Now I'm going to hire him to do my employment case. Mr. Mitchell had also given me an excellent rate and met with me outside of his office to avoid the hassle of traffic and parking. As a client, patience and trust in Mr. Mitchell's performance as an attorney is worthwhile. If you are in need of a great and very knowledgeable attorney, you should hire Mr. Mitchell.

Mr. Mitchell helped me to resolve my problem with a dental fraud case. He guided me in contacting news channels, tracking down the dentist who was involved with the insurance fraud, contacting the dental board, and speaking with the FBI about the case.

Knowledgeable, Ethical, Dependable
Unemployment wreaked havoc on my financial standing, leaving me the recourse of last resort: bankruptcy. I was in search of a lawyer who thoroughly understood the process. More importantly, I also sought an ethical lawyer who had patience with his clients and would walk you through the steps of the bankruptcy process. Andrellos Mitchell came through for me. Due to his actions, I can look foward to working on the road of recovery to restoring my financial status to a decent level.

Andrellos Mitchel is an Intelligent, Dependable, Aggressive Lawyer Who Gets Good Results! He Provides Sound Legal Advice
I have sought the legal counsel of Mr. Mitchell on several matters. One such matter concerned Estate Planning. In the estate matter Mr. Mitchell cautiously counseled me about the importance of updating my mother’s will as well as informing me of options I have to assist my mother with her personal and financial affairs as she becomes physically and/or mentally incapacitated. He informed me of the option to Petition the court to become my mom’s Guardian and/or Conservator to assist her in handling her estate. He also gave me sound advice about the uses and purposes of a Power of Attorney and Trusts. After consulting with Mr. Mitchell I felt a great sense of relief about my legal options in the estate planning of my family. In another matter I sought Mr. Mitchell’s legal advice about a real estate matter involving a neighbor who was in violation of the rules in my housing community. I followed Mr. Mitchell’s advice and the matter was resolved without me filing the lawsuit I had anticipated I would have to file in order to get the proper legal relief. Finally, Mr. Mitchell consulted me about some concerns I had on my job. I followed his advice and my concerns were easily put to rest.

Excellent service
I met Mr. Mitchell quite by accident. He immediately spotted there was something seriously bothering me. He invited me to lunch and I got a chance to tell my story. I did not even realize I had any recourse until after I spoke with him, and he assured me my case was winnable. Without much fanfare Mr. Mitchell crafted my case very skilfully. He was very attentive to the facts of the case and asked many questions regarding the background of the case. Winning the case was not easy, as we were up against seasoned lawyers with substantial interest in preserving their reputation and their business. His courtroom demeanor was exemplary, and drew respect from the federal judge, who complimented on his grasp of the technicalities of the law. And yet Mr. Mitchell is not combative. This probably encouraged the opposing party to settle, and we were able to reach a very satisfactory settlement. His all-round approach in litigating my case took a big burden off my back. I was made whole again.

Exceptional Lawyer (experience)
Mr. Mitchell is an exceptional lawyer in my opinion. He has great customer service skills and understanding for persons not familiar with the legal system. On several occasions I have observed Mr. Mitchell maintained his professionalism during difficult circumstances while engaged with other parties who were not so professional. I was very impress with his demeanor and it truly spoke to his character as being a true professional. Mr. Mitchell was able to have an unbiased opinion of my families situation. I felt he cared and was interested in helping me with my case. I trust this letter as informed the next client of Mr. Mitchell abilities a one of DC exceptional lawyer.

Tremendous Services
Mr. Mitchell helped me through, quite possibly one of worst, most stressful situations I have ever dealt with in my work environment. Not only did we reach a successful conclusion to my situation, we did it without having to go to court and dragging out an already taxing situation. I do not give praise easily. I believe there is always room for improvement. But there is honestly nothing more Mr. Mitchell could have done to top the services provided. I am every thankful for all he did.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I am an attorney practicing in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area practicing in the elder law field.
