LEARN FROM THOSE HAS HAS REPRESENTED5 / 5 stars
My husband was in a very difficult situation with an old criminal case and Mr. Mitchell was able to vacate those cases that wore over 10 years old and through the whole process Mr. Mitchell always kept us updated and explained to us the entire situation a step at a time. He not only gave us hope, but he won the cases. Mr. Mitchell is a man with a heart of gold that will fight for you and treat you like family. There might be many lawyers in Miami but there is only one that will truly work hard to win your case. He is very knowledgeable and aggressive in fighting for you. He has gone far and beyond my expectations. I highly recommend him to everyone and I will be forever grateful for everything he did to keep my family together.

5 / 5 stars
Attorney PJ Mitchell is a brilliant top-notch attorney that impressed me beyond words. He handled a negligence matter for me that was very difficult for me to face or discuss. Mr. Mitchell's confidence and strategy to prove my case was not only exceptional, ethical, and accurate to me but also to colleagues, mediators, and Judges. PJ believed in me since day one. He obtained evidence that no one would imagine possible. The significant hard work, dedication, and intellect of a brilliant attorney obtained me a settlement of $1.6 million dollars. I am forever thankful to Mr. Mitchell for his huge success in my case and how diligently he handled a case against a very powerful entity. The amount of evidence in my favor proved that my case was true and was a huge victory. I highly recommend Mr. Mitchell and often remind him how thankful I am to have had him represent me and not give up on me. Forever thankful PJ, you know who I am and do not reveal my name because you also protected my identity. Top attorney.
