I had a Probate matter that was very complex and difficult and that made me feel helpless and hopeless, and no other attorney was willing to tackle. Mitch Port came to my rescue and hung in there even when a settlement was not guaranteed, and previous negotiations before he substituted in were unsuccessful. He is very compassionate and treats his clients with a lot of patience and a willingness to listen. He is a tough negotiator from his years of experience handling cases, and knows just the right thing to say and do to get past the barriers and get results. I highly recommend him and his superb legal expertise.

Mitch helped my family with our trust and will planning. He listened to what we wanted to accomplish and then helped create a program that would do just that. I appreciate his honesty, knowledge, and responsiveness.

Mr. Port was a pleasure to deal with. He did the estate planning for my parents and then for me. Great advice and counsel on making decisions and sorting through any number of issues. A wonderful, grounded guy who listens and cares.

Mitchell Port has handled my Brother's Probate in Los Angeles, California. I live in Spring, Texas and had to make many trips to Los Angeles in connection with my Brother's Estate.
After my first meeting with Mitchell, I was so impressed that I hired him the same day. He explained every step before I had to decide what to do and advised me correctly throughout the the entire probate event.
The probate process went very smoothly thanks to Mitchell's guidance and expertise.
I would highly recommend Mitchell Port to anyone who is seeking a probate attorney who is trustworthy and very capable.

Mitchell handled my friend's probate. He was professional, trustworthy, and handled himself with integrity. He explained every step before we had to decide what to do, he "held our hand" while being patient and compassionate. Our probate went as smoothly as it possibly could without any of the delays other attorneys might cause. We appreciated his guidance and experience and would recommend him to any of our friends or other family members.

I recommend Mitchell to my colleagues, friends and family because of his high integrity, good moral character and client responsiveness. He relates well with all types of people, he explains himself in understandable terms, he is generous with his time (often without charge) and the quality of his work is impressive.
