I will never go anywhere else
Never once did I doubt I was in the best possible hands. I not only recommend attorney Elise Mitchell, but I'm sure that once you have used her services you too will look no further. I'd recommend Elise Mitchell for most any legal matter and she has given me some of the "Best" legal advice I have ever received. There were no empty promises made just to keep the client happy which I know sometimes occurs when seeking counsel. Perhaps the thing that impressed me most about Elise was nothing was "sugar coated". She was very straight forward and told me what to expect each step of the way. Going through Family court, custody, and eventually our adoption case. Elise has been my lawyer for over three years and has done an excellent job in not only fighting FOR me, but also PROTECTING my interests! I highly recommend her for any family court needs or Adoption case you may have. There is no other attorney that will work as hard for you. I have used Elise Mitchell for custody, Adoption and various other matters and she is a wonderful attorney I could not have been happier and I will never go anywhere else! From start to finish, Elise and her team kept me informed of each step and what the options were. Elise is aggressive, knowledgeable and effective. She made the process so much easier and gave me peace of mind in a stressful but successful outcome. AN EXCELLENT ATTORNEY

The Best Lawyer
Elise is the ambassador of truth. She might not be able to answer all your simple questions when you would like due to her busy case load and popularity. Trust that she is busy because she is honest and good at her craft. Connected in the community and knowledgeable beyond measure. She follows the letter of the law to a T and I trust Elise fully.

An awesome lawyer
Having to go through a custody battle and amongst other things is never easy. I’m glad I was able to have Elise by my side through this tough time. Although at times I felt that she was a little to busy for my case she ended up doing a phenomenal job at the end of. It took a while but I’m glad the way things turned out. Trust me, you will not be making a mistake if you hire her as an attorney. At times things can get frustrating but I know she had my back the entire way. Thank you Elise for keeping me apart of my kids lives. David

Thank You So Much Elise!!!
Im a loving dad that was going through a custody case that was very difficult and emotional. After retaining Elise and seeing how she fought for me I felt so,so much better. She does not mess around and is serious and right to business. I'm so grateful someone recommended her to me!! Couldn't picture anyone else to have by my side. If I ever have any legal issues again she is the #1 person I'm calling. Thank so much Elise!!!!

So glad we found her!
My Husband and I were going to court to get more visitation with his son. It turned ugly real fast and the only thing that made this big mess feel ok was Elise. Talking to her put our worries at ease. She Made us feel confident in our case. She is definitely a firecracker in the court room and it’s very obvious she is well respected by judges and her peers. She is definitely someone you want in your corner. Our case ended up very fair and we were very pleased with the outcome. Couldn’t have done it without Elise.

Rude and abrasive
This lady is very unprofessional. She has unnecessary attitude and is very arrogant. I was sent a bill for her services and it was so unreasonable, especially when she literally only spent 20mins on my case. I just can't get over how ugly her attitude is... be aware!! People like her make it hard to trust a lawyer to fully represent you and not just take your money

unprepared, never punctual, disorganized, abrasive,rude,
I made a mistake in hiring her as my divorce lawyer. Initially she impressed me in our first meeting only to find out that she only wants to be paid. She's abrasive and unprofessional. She was unprepared and was always late. She worked against me and did not represent me at the end. I found myself defending my rights. She encouraged me to settle and left with nothing but debt. She wanted the proceedings to be done as soon as possible as she was fully paid. I was asked if I would recommend her services, I simply said, no.

Extremely poor attorney
I hired Elise Mitchell about three years ago. She was the worse. She has a very nasty attitude. In the initial consultation she was rude but I took that as she was tough and I thought I needed a tough attorney. She was not tough at all just a rude person. She was never prepared for court and was rude in court and did not listen to me. She did absolutely nothing to help me. At times I felt like she worked against me. She did return calls only to bill me for them and not be ready during court. I would not recommend Elise Mitchell. If you need document completion only; then maybe but to represent you in court and fight on your behalf, she is not good at all. But absolutely wanted to be paid.

I made the tragic mistake of hiring her for my divorce case. While she was very kind during the initial free consultation, it was all just a trap. After I signed the written contract, her attitude completely changed. She constantly ignored my calls and did not respond to my emails for days. The only meaningful conversations we had where on the days immediately before the court date; the court appearances were a complete mess. On two separate occasions she forgot to bring documents that were essential for my case; she made inaccurate statements on my behalf and often forgot the most important points.
