Absolutely amazing experience
I'd say that Mitch is one of the people in a legal world that is up to speed with technology, understanding the business processes and how to treat and build relationships with clients. You can expect the in-depth understanding on his domain expertise because he is an all-star pro but more importantly an honest and open conversation about your issue or question. I highly endorse Mitch and would recommend him to all my friends who need legal services.

I reached out to Mitch for help with a contract issue. He was able to help me resolve the issue quickly. His attention and dedication went beyond my expectations. I trust his legal advice completely and will absolutely hire him should I have another need. I highly recommend Mitch and his firm!

A Unique & Informed Perspective
Mitch bridges the gap between influencers and legal advice. There can be a fear of the unknown when it comes to due diligence and social media and Mitch's informed and friendly presence helps people stay in the know with great advice. Mitch's perspective is long overdue and much needed in the online/livestreaming world. It's a bit of the Wild Wild West with livestreaming and influencer programs and many people are operating blindly. I consulted with Mitch for a particular client which was incredibly helpful. Looking forward to future content & consultations with Mitch!

Uniquely Skilled in New Media Law
Mitch Jackson is uniquely skilled in all areas of New Media Law including social media and live streaming. Not only does his background in business help him when advising clients, but his vast understanding of the use and culture of New Media is impressive. Mitch has been a pioneer in live streaming and social media as a user and creator. This allows him to intimately understand how the law is applied and interpreted. When I consulted with Mitch he was helpful and informed. It was important to Mitch that he give me the best advice and service possible - and he made it a point to keep the door open should I need any other assistance, which was appreciated! Mitch is the consummate professional with a very friendly and personable way about him. In working with Mitch, it's clear that he values integrity and doing what's right above all else.

A Voice you can TRUST
Mitch Jackson is an attorney with a heart for people and delivering value. The Live Streaming community has been made safer and easier to navigate with him as a resource! I've consulted with Mitch on a number of occasions and gotten stellar, direct, actionable advice that is clear and focused. His compassion for fellow live streaming enthusiasts and the predicaments that can sometimes occur with others lack of ethics, bullying or even fraud has made him the "go to" resource in the community. I am appreciative of Mitch and highly recommend his services.

Mitch Knows Small Business!
I met Mitch through social media. Yes, I said social media! He is known as the "Livestreaming Lawyer" to me and many of our peers. Not only does he provide hours of free content on social media but he's also sound counsel when needed! I recently asked Mitch to help me with converting my social media experience to small business opportunities. He gave me great advice and I really hope to work with him in the future. Thank you Mitch! I appreciate your time, experience, and your trustworth and intelligent nature!

My patients received prompt, professional, and ethical legal assistance-- and so did I...
"As fellow Rotarians since I joined Rotary in 1993, I have known Mitch Jackson and Lisa Wilson of the Jackson and Wilson Law Firm for several years. During this time, I have had the pleasure of referring to Jackson and Wilson my patients who were in the need of a personal injury law firm. My patients received prompt, professional, and ethical legal assistance in the hands of Jackson and Wilson, and were quite pleased with the attention to detail—and results-- they received. A few months ago, I found a need to refer myself to Jackson and Wilson. After my bicycle accident versus an automobile in 2000, it seemed that the other person’s auto insurance was not interested in settling my claim— they didn’t respond to my letters, and I felt that they just hoped I would go away. I brought attorney Mitch Jackson of the Jackson & Wilson law firm into the case, and he was able to get an immediate response from the other party’s insurance. Within a few weeks, Mitch was able to negotiate a settlement for me that was over three times the other party’s original settlement offer. All of this was done by phone and by fax, with just one settlement conference—and we were able to settle out of court, without litigation! With my busy schedule, time is critical. Jackson and Wilson, thank you for your professionalism, and thank you for saving me precious time! " -- Sincerely, Dr. Frank M.

Mitch’s reputation, litigation techniques, and access to trial resources made a HUGE difference!
I’ve known Mitch, Lisa, and their firm, Jackson & Wilson, Inc. for more than 20 years. During this time, I’ve worked with them on numerous legal cases. Several specific matters that come to mind are two difficult wrongful death cases Mitch and I worked on together. The first case involved the tragic wrongful death of two young men in an automobile accident. After the attorneys for the insurance company representing the other side initially denied liability, Mitch and I worked together and litigated the case resulting in a seven figure settlement on behalf of the surviving heirs. In another wrongful death case involving what we believed to be was the avoidable drowning of a young high school track star, we once again joined together to focus our legal efforts to protect the legal rights of the surviving family and, to help make a local lake safe for swimming to the general public. In a fashion similar to the above, I’m proud to say that Mitch and I worked hard to take a difficult case with the other side denying responsibility, to a final settlement of almost one million dollars. In both cases, it was a pleasure to work with Mitch during the litigation and pre-trial preparation. In addition to our hard work, I believe Mitch’s reputation, litigation techniques, and access to trial resources and experts helped us resolve these difficult cases for maximum value. I would not hesitate to recommend Mitch, his partner Lisa, and the firm of Jackson & Wilson, Inc. to anyone looking for experienced counsel in any matter involving catastrophic injury, wrongful death, or business litigation.

Mr. Jackson obtained a million dollar plus verdict for us after we were offered only $1 to settle...
"I would highly recommend the law firm of Jackson & Wilson to my friends and family. The firm of Jackson & Wilson handled several cases for my family (a wrongful death case and a personal injury matter) and at all times I was kept informed and updated on the progress of the cases. In the wrongful death case, Mr. Jackson obtained a million dollar plus verdict for us after we were offered only $1 to settle. In the other personal injury case, he managed to recover a substantial settlement in only a short period of time!

Thank you Mitch for all you've done for us
It really was a pleasure to have worked with Mitch on my wife's case. He was honest, straightforward, timely in his responses to our questions, and very hard working. I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend him to anyone. It is comforting to know there are still people who conduct themselves in this manner. Thank you Mitch for all you've done for us.

Thank God for civil rights and Mr. Jackson...
First of all, it is a wonderful profession to be a defender of the law. This is especially true in the area of civil rights and defense. We think of these lawyers (and of course our own Mr. Jackson) as being the defenders of the public at large who take on the concerns and protect the defense and civil rights of people who would not otherwise be heard. Thank God for civil rights and Mr. Jackson. I would like to say that Mr. Jackson is very professional and hands on type of lawyer. He was also helpful in areas of law that we did not actually hire him for. He is always supportive and always willing to listen and give advice, even if he his opinion was different than ours on any particular matter. It was a long journey in getting justice for the death of our son (Arthur Lewis Jr.). The civility is great with the legal team of Jackson & Wilson (Lisa also because we know as husband and wife, she was a great asset to the legal effort and team). Giving God of course all the glory and sharing the victory with Mr. Jackson and all staff. -- Arthur and Jessie Lewis

"I endorse Mitch Jackson. Mitch is one of Orange County's best Personal Injury Attorneys. Not only does Mitch obtain consistently high awards for his clients but he is also as generous of a man as you will ever meet. Personal Injury attorneys normally don't endorse each other because it is such a competitive practice area. However, I practice Personal Injury Litigation & not only do I endorse Mitch as a Personal Injury Attorney for anyone in need of such services but if I needed my own Personal Injury attorney, Mitch would be the first one I would call. Mitch is old school regarding treating clients with respect & dignity but is on the cutting edge of technology, which benefits his clients tremendously. One needs only to go to his website to discern that this man has what it takes to be an effective advocate & communicator. However, the best thing about Mitch is that he is passionate about representing his clients well. Mitch is a bright star in our community & I strongly endorse him."

"I had the pleasure of meeting "Mitch" Jackson several years ago -- as opposing counsel. I found him to be professional, bright, and most importantly, compassionate and committed to the rights of his client. Whenever I would meet with Mitch, his clients would not be far away, as Mr. Jackson was always keeping them apprised of the happenings in our case. Albeit we were opposing counsel and both fighting hard for our clients, Mr. Jackson's warmth and professionalism allowed us to amicably handle our case together. The commitment and attention Mr. Jackson gives to his clients is unparallelled. I would highly encourage his legal services to anyone in need."

This demeanor, however, cannot completely hide the fact that Mitch is a fierce advocate for his clients, and his results in trial speak volumes. I did not hesitate a second when considering this endorsement."
