About mitchell family law

Compassionate counsel for your family

Firm Overview

Based in Indianapolis, Mitchell Family Law P.C. is dedicated to protecting the best interests of families going through a divorce and other legal family matters. With over three decades of experience, I am prepared to tackle any complicated family situation and work towards a just resolution. I offer compassionate legal representation for you whether you need representation in a divorce or legal separation, emancipation, or visitation or guardianship issue.

 

As an experienced litigator, I know how to get results. I believe that alternative dispute resolution is best for families to solve their problems quickly, but if your case needs to go to court, I will fiercely advocate for your rights.

 

I recognize that each case is unique, but my objective for every case remains the same: to help you determine all the possible outcomes in your particular case, safeguard your finances, and secure the best results possible for you. I will employ cost-effective and client-driven strategies for your individual needs. I strive to remain ahead of the curve relating to changes and trends in the law, strategies, and technology. You can expect transparency in all areas of access and in information sharing regarding your case, and I will promptly respond to any communication, question, or concern from you at any time. I do understand how difficult and challenging these situations can be on your emotional well-being and I will do my best to assume burdens for you during this time and alleviate your stress.

With broad experience in all matters of divorce and family law, I can assist clients with pre- and post-nuptial agreements, planning with divorce proceedings for traditional and contemporary families, and modification and post-dissolution matters. No matter what you are facing, I will help you achieve a fair resolution for your needs and will explore all your options to reach for the best possible outcome.

 

Reaching your best outcome does not always involve going to trial. In fact, I believe the best outcomes can often be resolved out of court with the help of alternative dispute resolution methods.   I will assess all the details of your case and develop the most cost effective and results driven strategies to help you achieve your goals.  If the solution that you need cannot be reached without going to court, I will vigorously defend your rights in the courtroom as well. Throughout the process, I will always keep you informed as to developments and communications relating to your case and give you the peace of mind of knowing that an experienced counsel is on your side at all times.

Philosophy

My philosophy is that each client is equally as valuable. I value my clients’ time as much as my own and realize that the issues you are dealing with greatly affect your life. I do not take that lightly. I am genuinely interested in learning your situation and am also dedicated to ensuring your future success. I want to equip you with the tools to move forward in your new phase of life— no matter what it looks like. I will be honest about what I think is in your best interests, but ultimately the choice is yours. Each client has a right to determine the possible outcome of their case.

About Gloria K Mitchell

Born and raised in Indiana, I am proud to give back to my community by providing strong, sound legal counsel to families in need. In my experience, I have seen how the process of going through a divorce or any legal issues involving finances, children and your feelings can be very difficult. I believe that anyone going through such situations should be served with the utmost respect, and deserves dedicated attention.

 

In my first job as a lawyer, I was a public defender and I loved it. I had the opportunity to explore interesting areas of law, represent people in need, and did public appellate work for the firm I worked for at the time. When an influx of family law cases came into the practice, I felt that I had finally found an area of law that resonated with me. I began to see how I could help families and divorcing parents navigate the challenges that arise with any family law matter. Further into my career, I began looking to connect with resources and people that could help me shape a more holistic approach to legal situations.
 
For over three decades, I have been using my legal expertise to help people across Indiana with their legal troubles. Driven by the opportunity to be part of the solution to their problems, I genuinely enjoy assisting families to get through hard times with focus and clarity so they can seamlessly transition to their new normal.

Beyond the Courtroom

Passionate about what I do, I have volunteered my services to various projects and civic organizations that could benefit from my knowledge and skill set. Some of these experiences include:

  • Domestic Violence & Shelter Counseling
  • Various projects with the Bar Association
  • Assisting local non-profits to secure their corporate and tax status

 

In addition to volunteering my time, I have also published works for numerous legal seminars and speaking events. Through these varied avenues, my work as a lawyer has been recognized much throughout my career. I’m proud of the work I have done so far and am committed to continuing providing strong, high-quality counsel for my clients.
