Family Law for the 


As popular parlance goes, we "get it." At Mitchell Law, we get that times have changed and many couples seeking to resolve vexing, family legal matters want and need resolution without "war" and the total destruction of lives, relationships and families that comes with it. 


They understand that pursuing a"zero sum" outcome in child custody cases, divorce and separation can often times undermine their own self-interests. Many in our conflict weary society are more interested in amicable settlements that lends to overall well-being of the family. 


However, when settlement is not possible, we are experienced litigators and will skillfully protect the assets, interest and rights of our clients.
