“I want to say just two words to Gary: ‘Thank you.’ Mr. Mitchell was opposing counsel in my divorce. He was a complete professional and was able work with my Attorney to come to a settlement. Because of his ability to work with my ex wife , my Attorney and myself he saved many additional hours of Court and Attorney time on both sides. He made this very unpleasant situation a little more bearable. I would recommend Mr. Mitchell without hesitation.

-Alan C, Moorpark

Trust-worthy, reliable and available are words to describe Gary and his staff. My divorce was a challenge and probably one of the toughest for Gary. Gary has prosecuted it with poise and patience. In the courtroom, Gary obviously has a long-lasting and respected relationship with the Ventura Court system. He knows CA laws and effectively applies them. Most importantly, he is always friendly and provides excellent service for a reasonable rate. I highly recommend Gary for any divorce.

-Tom of Thousand Oaks

“Gary Mitchell-One of the few attorneys you can trust!! I went to one attorney who charged a retainer of $4000 and did nothing for me. A friend told me about Mr. Mitchell and upon first contact, I knew I had found the right guy!
Gary is efficient and his paperwork is very clean. His approach is personable and when you call him, he is there to help. He has a calm demeanor, which works wonder in court. I now have an attorney and friend for life.”

-Paul, Police Sergeant

“I am honored to write this testimonial for Gary Mitchell. What an incredible impact this man has had on my life. When I engage a professional for any reason I have certain expectations, rarely they are met. Gary Mitchell is the exception. I interviewed four attorneys before Gary, a referral from a close friend. After five minutes I knew—this is a man who loves what he does and does it well—not flamboyantly but consistently, all of my legal issues are being handled professionally; in a timely manner, with fairness, integrity, a sense of humor and great compassion. I could not ask for a stronger advocate and what a priceless comfort during a very challenging period of my life.”
