Firm Overview

You can count on us to treat each one of our clients with respect, dignity and a sense of fairness. The whole staff strives to always do the right thing and help our clients make the best choices for their lives and future security.

We help you survive financial attacks from your creditors and your "ex" and we help preserve your relationships with your children and provide for your family in the near and distant future by protecting your assets and possessions.

The law firm was established in 2004 in Cape Coral, Florida. We understand the uncertainty and frustration that comes with your legal issues or lawsuits as well as your need to discuss your issues, needs, and case quickly. We provide rapid and extensive consultations, in person (or by telephone for some types of cases), so that you can better understand how to proceed with your issues or case with wisdom, knowledge, and insight.

We strive to protect your freedoms, rights, and security and provide high quality legal services to you in a professional, respectful, realistic, and honest manner.

We offer evening consultations also.

Eliminate your debts and Get a Fresh Start! If your wages, finances, cars, and houses are under threats of being taken away and seized by creditors and lawsuits we will help you understand how bankruptcy could help you keep them and help you survive by stopping garnishments and levies.

The same assets may be threatened by your spouse in a divorce case. Your relationship with your children may be in jeopardy or you may not be receiving the child support you need. We can help you understand your rights and risks under the law, and fight for you and your children, and for your rights to child support or preserving your assets. Call for a consultation so you can make an informed and wise choice.

Services Offered For Fixed Fees?

Bankruptcy cases have flat rate fixed attorney fees, as do most of the Wills & Trusts (the simple typical ones). Bankruptcy chapter 7 flat fees are $1400 for singles, $1500 for married couples filing together. Chapter 13 fees are $3500 for a 3 year Plan; $3900 for a 5 year Plan (but between $1500-$2500 down before filing) depending on the factors of each case. We have payment plans for chapter 7 and 13 and you can start the bankruptcy case process for $500 down (sometimes less- we are flexible in many cases). If hourly fees are needed in bankruptcy (rarely occurs) for extra legal work beyond typical cases the hourly rate is $250 per hour. Clerk filing fees and costs (about $350) are extra and additional to the attorney flat rate fees stated above.

Divorce
Divorce, Paternity (unmarried), Child Custody & Visitation, Child Support, Alimony, Division of Assets and Debts, Modifications, Enforcement, Prenuptial Agreements, and Family Law.
We are a divorce & family law firm practicing in the areas of divorce, paternity cases, alimony, parenting plans/timesharing plans (custody / visitation), child support, distribution of assets & liabilities, modifications, enforcement, name changes, prenuptial agreements and all other aspects of divorce and paternity cases (unmarried child custody and support). Attorney Mitchell has practiced extensively in this area from 2003 to the present. Dealing with divorce, custody, visitation, timesharing/parent plans, child support, and the other issues arising out of the termination of a marriage can be emotionally devastating and often financially draining. Obtaining a quality divorce lawyer to represent you and protect your interests is essential. We also handle paternity cases involving the children of unmarried parents to determine parent plans/custody, timesharing, and child support. We do our best to try to ensure our clients receive the best possible outcome.

Estate Planning
Wills and Trusts
Planning for the inevitable things in life is a very important consideration when thinking of your family and loved ones. You want the best for them. Making plans ahead of time gives you the peace of mind that your family and loved ones will be properly cared for because all your affairs are in order and they will not be burdened with unnecessary problems and court litigation upon your illness and/or death.

You may not actually need a Trust and may only need certain documents. Perhaps you may only need a Power Of Attorney or Health Care Surrogate in your situation. Whatever your needs our experienced and knowledgeable staff and attorney will customize the documents based upon your needs, desires, or circumstances.

Creating and setting up a Will, a Living Will or a Trust lets you focus on the truly important things like family, friends, and yourself. A consultation with the attorney will help you understand the benefits and costs to creating a Trust or Will or other documents that prepare for the future.

Bankruptcy will discharge most kinds of debts and liabilities, including most types of taxes (based on some factors). Many people view bankruptcy as almost morally evil, like they are stealing from their creditors. However, most of the commercial creditors have already made their money and profits from you. Most people file due to circumstances beyond their control. They want to pay their debts but they are unable to and the "hounds" do not stop "barking at them". Bankruptcy could not be evil when the law authorizes it and it was commanded by God in the Old Testament (Deut. 15) so people would not be extremely materialistic and not care about people anymore. Some creditors could not care if you have to live under a bridge, just pay them their money! People worry that filing for bankruptcy will ruin their credit rating and hurt their financial future. But, nowadays credit and loans can be obtained very quickly, often within a year or less since so many people have filed in the last few years and now one can only obtain a chapter 7 discharge once every 8 years. Call us to learn the facts and details!

Bankruptcy is often a better choice than credit consolidation programs because in bankruptcy all discharged debts are not considered income with the IRS on your tax returns. Forgiven debt or smaller paybacks through lower interest rates in consolidation programs are usually required to be stated as income on your federal income tax returns. Call us to discover which would be better for you!

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

We started off practicing primarily in divorce/family law in 2004. When the economic collapse hit in 2008 and business started to become much slower the law firm decided to assist people in bankruptcy as the slow economy hurt them as well. Attorney Mitchell and the Law Firm knows and understands how you feel and suffer in these slow economic times. We also began offering services in Wills & Trusts as attorney Mitchell had studied these subjects much in law school.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others

The law firm has over ten years experience in divorce & family law and four years in bankruptcy handling approximately 200 bankruptcy cases.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

We provide our services to our clients in the best reasonable manner we possibly can and serve you in your case the way we would want to be served and worked for. Attorney Mitchell is a born again Christian who realizes his labor, work and efforts for you will be evaluated by the Lord who wants us to "consider others better than ourselves". What we do for others and our clients is what we are doing for the Lord, so we strive to provide you the best quality attorney services that we can.

I seek to maintain a high quality professional relationship with each of my clients. Being a sole practitioner attorney allows me to give each of my clients more personal attention. Communication is the key to the success of a client's case and we try to communicate all important issues to our clients so they can make an informed and wise decision. We provide our client's with copies of all documents we receive on their case. We have the latest technology to ensure the most reliable and cost effective methods in legal research and client communication.

I graduated from Regent University School of Law in Virginia Beach, Virginia in May 1993. Regent was an excellent law school that taught law based on the Christian and Biblical viewpoint. I am licensed to practice law in Florida and I have been a member in good standing with the Florida Bar since May 1994. I was an associate attorney practicing family law and divorce for one year in Fort Myers at a family law firm in 2003-2004. I started my own law firm in May 2004, which began operations from home based on funding and it soon expanded into the current law office on Del Prado Blvd. in Cape Coral. Prior to law school I graduated from Florida Bible College in Hollywood, Florida after attending Florida State University in Tallahassee.
