This review is from a person who hired this attorney.

Very knowledgeable and professional
Mr. Mitchell represented me in an auto accident claim against a very uncooperative insurance company. Mr. Mitchell acted in a very professional, courteous, and ethical manner. He was very knowledgeable of the court system and laws in the case. He kept me informed throughout the process. He was quick to return calls or answer emails whenever I had questions or concerns. I felt that he had my best interest at heart during this rough time. Mr. Mitchell was able to secure a very favorable outcome on the case. I hope that I'm never in need of this type of assistance again....however, if fate puts me in that situation again, I will definitely ask Mr. Mitchell to represent me.

Recalled Medical device
Although I no longer live in Arkanas, I called David after disappointing calls to lawyers in my area regarding a recalled medical device and a second surgery. David's firm was not handling my particular recall but was able to recommend a firm in Jonesboro. I was very happy with this firm and David stayed involved in the case until settlement. Although he was not the lead lawyer, David called and emailed regularly to make sure I was satisfied with the law firm and explain every aspect of the case as it developed. My entire experience was very positive and the settlement was more than satisfactory. I am so grateful for David's recommendation and involvement. I highly recommend David Mitchell to anyone needing a knowledgeable, conscientious, honest, capable and caring lawyer in a personal injury case.

Excellent Legal Service
He has settled several disputes with agencies that have been impossible for me to resolve on my own. He has always proven very knowledgeable but careful and precise in his recommendations and judgement in approaching my problems. One case involved an insurance company who refused to honor my claim---which was resolved in my favor with total payment of the claim. The second case involved excess charges from a cell phone company which was again resolved favorably. I have also consulted him on other lesser issues just for his advice, this advice has always been concise and helpful to me. I think Mr. Mitchell is an outstanding lawyer who exemplifies the professionalism and ethical conduct that serves to enhance the reputation of the legal profession.

If you need a over the top lawyer who will go the extra mile for you then David Mitchell is your Man. I was involved in a car wreck and David went after the man that hit me insurance company and had to go after my insurance company because of all my medical bills.

Hard Worker
David Mitchell worked very hard with me on my case. He stayed in contact with me and let me know what I needed to do every step of the way. If I ever had any questions about what was going on, I knew I could call and get ahold of him on the same day and get my questions answered. I felt comfortable with the whole process thanks to him.
