I consulted Mitchel Port as I was in need of an attorney in a probate case.
After the initial call Mitchell Port kept ignoring my calls, and when I finally got a hold of him he was very rude in answering my questions - like I should know better... If i did know CA probate law I would not be in need of a lawyer!
The outcome was that I did not hire Mr.Port nor would I reccomend others to contact him. Probate cases can be very hard to deal with as a person is dead - the last thing needed in such a situatuon is a person talking down or being arrogant towards You.

What a disappointment!! I’m from out of state. I was the designated person in our extended family to check into the distribution of assets of a distant relative of ours who passed away. I left messages with a couple of highly rated Yelp probate attorneys with hopes of meeting them before hire. After leaving a callback number at Mitchell’s office, I noticed a chat box on his website. After my initial introduction in the chat box, I started typing my concern to see if this was the person who could help me. Before I even finished my sentence, I received a response to my introduction in the chat box that it would be $400/hr to ask a question. I erased what I typed and retyped that I would like an interview before hire. I was immediately told “Good Day”, and the chat abruptly ended. I don’t know if this was the attorney answering, or the hired help.
I received a call back within an hour. Mitchell was just as rude to me as the chat. After finally explaining my situation, he advised me to drop the investigation I was doing, it wasn’t worth pursuing. He offered me no hope or suggestions. Everything he told me was very negative. It wasn’t until I spoke with another highly rated Yelp attorney that I was finally able to resolve my situation with that attorney’s direction. I guess my case wasn’t lucrative enough for Mitchell to consider helping me.

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.

We had a new attorney handling our case in court, and the person we were battling for a settlement just laughed at him and no progress was made. We knew then that we needed a tough negotiator that was thoroughly knowledgeable and experienced and firm, who would handle the case better and gain some respect for our argument. Mitch Port was that and more. His 33 years experience coupled with his aggressive pursuit of our claim, convinced the other party to settle, agreeing to the full requested settlement that we asked for. He knows how to play hardball if needed and is a superb negotiator with excellent negotiating skills both verbal and written. We highly recommend him!

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.

I used Mitchell Port both to design my Family Living Trust, but also to handle a sticky probate situation for my Ex Husband's estate. Mitch, was very good about explaining what to expect from the process, and educating us about the choices we would need to make. His fee's are very reasonable and he delivers a high quality service. I would highly recommend him.
