I have practiced law in several jurisdictions including Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia.  I focus my practice on helping families through difficult periods.  I have extensive experience in family law, juvenile law and crimnal law.  I have tried numerous jury trials as well as bench trials.  My experience as a former public defender enables me to evaluate cases and advise clients on the best avenue to pursue their matters.  


Since I have had extensive exposure to the military, I am skilled at guiding both service members and military dependents through the process of a separation, divorce or custody proceeding.  While living Naples Italy from 1998 to  2001, I was an adjunct professor for the University of Maryland University College.


My experience as an adjunct professor in the areas of paralegal studies and criminal justice gives me a unique perspective on the role of an attorney in civil or criminal matters.  Whether you are seeking to resolve your matter through an uncontested divorce, a contested trial in the civil or criminal courts, I have the experience temparment and skill to resolve your matter in a reasonable and just manner.  My office is located in downtown Rockville and is easily assesible by metro, bus or car.

Strongly recommend !!
I received quite a few scary unsolicited letters in the mail from some lawyers claiming that I had a serious offense, I'd better be using their services or I could face jail time. Fortunately I did my research and found Ms. Lynndolyn Mitchell, she was very kind and calmed down immediately after listening to me situation, she explained to me that I did NOT even need an attorney to handle my case. She offered me free consultation over the phone instructing me what to do step by step. I followed her advice and my case was dropped !! Ms. Lynndolyn Mitchell strikes me as a honest and sincere person with extensive legal experience, I strongly recommend her to anyone seeking legal services in the metro D.C. area.

Excellent Attorney
My first lawyer ever was a woman who proved to be a perfect choice for my case. I met Lynndolyn Mitchell PC. though a trusted persons recommendation. She is a woman that has a gentle mannerism and passion for the respect of the law. That combination is what I needed to settle my bills that a under insured drivers insurance company would not pay. I was struck and knock 10 feet off my bicycle by a PU truck ( that also crushed the bike) while riding on the sidewalk. She settled my medicial bill nightmare that I had for more than eight months. She guided me though the handling of an insurance company that was trying to cut their losses.Standing her ground with that Insurance company, she reached out to the medical bill companies to settle my case. I feel fortunate to have found Lynndolyn Mitchell PC. , a lawyer who was an advocate for me. I received an unexpected compensation due to her willingness to stand up for me. - Jim 09/2017
