"I have known Mitch for approximately 5 years. I know him professionally and personally. Professionally, I know that he is highly regarded amongst the Simcoe County Criminal Bar, academically very qualified and a very successful criminal defence lawyer. Personally, he is a lot of fun and a strong family man. If I needed a criminal defence lawyer, I would call Mitch in a flash."
