Serving Individuals Throughout Miami, Coral Gables And Miami-Dade County

When you have to hire an attorney to help you resolve disputes within your family, it is essential that you choose a legal professional who is experienced both in the law and in offering personalized services to a wide variety of families.

I am attorney David B. Mitchell, and I have more than 30 years of experience helping families navigate the complexities of divorce litigation, including judgment modifications and support enforcement. At my firm, the Law Office of David B. Mitchell, P.A., I encourage my clients to consider the benefits of collaborative law or mediation services. Even as a certified family mediator, I firmly believe in the power of litigation, but it is not always necessary. In today’s family law climate, most couples can benefit greatly from working together in an effort to create an agreement that suits their unique needs and goals for the future.

While divorce has become very common, the stigma surrounding it is still highly negative. Many of my clients, especially those dealing with high-asset divorce, prefer to work efficiently and quickly as they dissolve their marriage in a discreet fashion. As we develop your personal legal strategy, I will help you consider both your family’s immediate needs and your long-term goals, including how best to serve the development of your children.

No two families are alike. It is my job to take the time to get to know your family dynamic in a holistic sense as I provide you with the practical information you need to make intelligent decisions about your situation.

Highly recommend
I worked as opposing counsel with David on a contested divorce and custody case, and I respected his professional, yet zealous approach. I have also received good advice and guidance from him on various matters. He comes to mind when I need to refer clients for family law matters, and I feel confident that he will provide great representation for them.

Outstanding, supportive and knowledgeable attorney
Deciding to file for a divorce from my husband after 25 years of marriage was very difficult and Mr. Mitchell was supportive, knowledgeable and understood the challenges I faced. He worked with a forensic accountant and discovered businesses that my now ex-husband had hidden from me, all of which he presented in my divorce hearing, I will be forever grateful to Mr. Mitchell for his hard work and dedication, as it protected my children's future as well as mine.

What a relief! We had to change lawyers half way in our case. Meeting Mr. Mitchell felt like a rescue for us. He handled the case professionally and comfortably. He even has a listening quality, which is very rare for lawyers.
