I have known Mr. Mitchell for over 25 years, and he is simply one of the best lawyers and people that I know. As a lawyer he's highly skilled, diligent, honest, respectful, hard working and is the epitome of all of the best aspects of the legal profession. He is truly a great lawyer. Further, outside of the job he is one of the best people I know. Trigg is a genuinely nice person that cares for his fellow man. The Bar is lucky to have him as a member.

H. Trigg Mitchell has multiple practice areas, including corporate & transaction work, commercial finance, trusts & estates, and tax and finance. Mr. Mitchell and I worked in the same firm for several years, and I found Mr. Mitchell to be an extremely knowledgeable and professional colleague. He is a very ethical and trustworthy attorney, and I would have no hesitation in referring matters to him, and have done so in the past.
