In 2011 and 2013, Mitch was again nominated for OCTLA “Trial Lawyer of the Year” and in 2011, nominated for the Consumer Attorneys of California for the “CAOC Street Fighter of the Year” award.

Several earlier recognitions include Mitch being named as a “Southern California Super Lawyer” and an ability rating of 10.0 or Superb by the AVVO lawyer rating system.

In his spare time, he's served as a Judge Pro Tem and arbitrator with the Orange County Superior Court. He also served as a fee mediator for the Orange County Bar Association.

When Mitch is not trying cases, he enjoys sharing law, business, tech tips and ethics with other professionals. He's been active in the local and national legal community including the Orange County Bar Association, Orange County Trial Lawyers Association, Consumer Attorneys of California, American Bar Association, American Association for Justice, and National Trial Lawyers Association.

Outside of the courtroom, Mitch enjoys family and friends. As a fourth generation Rotarian, he serves his community through Rotary International (Past Club President 94-95; Past Assist District Governor; current Rotary Interact Chair).

Mitch enjoys speaking and writing and is a consulting expert in the new book “Shame Nation” by Sue Scheff with the forward by Monica Lewinsky. He's also a consulting expert in the California State Bar’s "Effective Introduction of Evidence in California- Chapter 54 Electronic and Social Media Evidence." His recent book (2019), "The Ultimate Guide to Social Media for Business Owners, Professionals and Entrepreneurs" was an amazon best-seller in two categories.
