Magazine as one of the Nationwide Leading Attorneys in Medical Malpractice.
Only 19 attorneys nationwide were featured overall and only 11 were featured in
the area of medical malpractice. Mr. Mitchell was also selected for inclusion in
the 2012-2019 editions of The Best Lawyers in America. Selection to Best
Lawyers is based on an exhaustive and rigorous peer-review survey comprising
more than 3.9 million confidential evaluations by top attorneys. Mr. Mitchell
was also selected for inclusion in the 2012-2010 editions of Louisiana Super
Lawyers in the area of medical malpractice. Only 5 percent of the attorneys in
the State of Louisiana are named to the very prestigious list. Mr. Mitchell’s
law firm, The Cochran Firm- Metairie was a recipient of the 2014-2016 Litigator
Awards, which honors the top 1% of lawyers in this country. The awards are
based on actual “Verdict & Settlement” dollar achievement rather than peer
popularity making them perhaps the most rigorous and openly judged Award Ratings.

Medical Malpractice Section of The Cochran Firm; Mr. Mitchell has served as the
President of the National Brain Injury Trial Lawyers. Mr. Mitchell has authored
