Great Job!
I do not feel that bankruptcy is a fix all, but sometimes things happen. I went through a divorce that left my finances in ruin (I wish I had used Mr. Mitchell then) and when it can down to taking care of my kids or starving, I choose to file bankruptcy. Scott Mitchell and his staff were so helpful and treated me with care (I was embarrassed). It really went well and now I get a chance to start over!

Very good lawyer
My ex was playing games with our custody case and wouldn't cooperate with simple things like pick up and drop off. Scott helped me go back to court to resolve the issues and I came out with more time with my kids and a more clear custody order.

Skilled, Effiecient and Informative
" When after four years, I realized that the economy is not going to improve soon enough for me to stay in business, I made the most difficult decision of my life, to seek out an Attorney and file bankruptcy. I have interviewed four Attorneys and after much consideration, decided to chose Scott Mitchell in Stockton. Scott and his paralegal staff were most professional, friendly, polite and explained the process after Scott determined that Chapter 7 was the proper avenue for my situation. Along the entire process, they were extremely detail oriented and asked for, reviewed and inspected all information that I gave them. Their attention to details and preparing the documents for the court was flawless and no doubt Scott's reputation is involved with every case he handles. After my experience, if anyone finds himself in a similar situation, without hesitation I highly recomending Scott Mitchell's legal services. "

Very Helpful !
A few years ago Scott Mitchell Law Office handled my divorce. Attorney Mitchell was accommodating, affordable and answered all my questions. He handled my divorce case and it couldn't have gone smoother. He explained things in detail, helped me decide what was the best option for me, I felt that he really did have my best interest in mind at all times. I was thrilled with the service I received and I do refer others to Scott Mitchell Law office for their legal issues. Recently I had some additional questions on a different legal matter, and as always Attorney Mitchell spoke with me and helped me consider all my options.

Great Attorney
I went through a terrible custody battle. Scott Mitchell was informative, he explained the process. I felt confident going in to mediation. Scott fought for my rights, I was very happy with my outcome.

Child visitation
I went to this Attorney because I was going through a Divorce and didn't have tons of money. I met Mr. Mitchell and really liked him. I paid my money and was disappointed after with the paralegal that didn't do the paperwork like she should have and I had to keep calling, the paper ended up being filed the night before the hearing. Then I had to work with another attorney from his office and this attorney did nothing for me, he even forgot to show up on a court date. The judge let me call him and wait. There was many times that this Attorney could have said something and just sat there drawing on a yellow pad. Like he was in deep thought and yes I elbowed him several times. When we left the room he told me I know what women like you want. I have no idea what that means. I would like to thank him for standing up for me and my daughter! (NOT). A little research and found out why he seemed to be out of it. His Step daughter was killed and he was in the process of suing the city. I'm so sorry for his loss, but really feel that Mr. Mitchell should have given me someone else and in my opinion he is responsible for who he has in his office.

Michael Kalanta hasn't worked here in over two years. Not that I agree with your comments, but if your issue is with him, why do you continue to post reviews on my profiles when you know Mr Kalanta doesn't work here anymore. I hope everything goes well for you in the future. Scott MItchell
