Hebert Law Center. He focuses his practice on catastrophic injury cases, including those that involve commercial trucks, industrial accidents, product liability, wrongful deaths, mass torts, workers’ compensation, and more.
A natural problem-solver, Jonathan realized that the law was an intricate and legal way to solve all sorts of problems for people, which set him on his career path to becoming a lawyer. Originally, he thought he would like to be a tax attorney due to the intricacies of that field. However, as soon as he started working for a personal injury firm and meeting face-to-face with clients who had been through awful situations and accidents, he knew that his real calling was to be a plaintiff personal injury attorney.
Like the rest of the team of Chris Corzo Injury Attorneys, Attorney Mitchell believes in the importance of doing whatever it takes to “do right” by his clients. He is known for being a good listener who genuinely cares about what his clients are going through when they come to him for legal help. With his background in finance, he knows to pay attention to the smallest detail in a case, especially when considering financial details like losses, invoices, bills, etc.
Throughout his career, Attorney Jonathan Mitchell has won numerous awards and recognitions, such as being a finalist for the Flory Trials Top Individual Advocates and the winner of the Mock Trial Competition in the Eastern District of Louisiana. He has had the honor of speaking at important legal events, including the Louisiana Association for Justice Federal Tort Claims Act annual meeting and the Baton Rouge Bar Association “Last Chance CLE: Updates on Medical Malpractice Litigation” seminar.
Jonathan grew up and went to school in Louisiana. He serves on the Louisiana State Board of Private Investigator Examiners, a volunteer position that allows him to protect the public by ensuring only qualified candidates receive a license to practice as a private investigator. He has also served on the Greater Baton Rouge Community Tennis Association Board, which organizes tennis leagues around Baton Rouge. He has spent time as a volunteer substitute professor at Louisiana State University and Southern Law Schools. He has also judged Louisiana State University trial advocacy competitions.
When he has free time, Jonathan, an avid tennis player, is often on the court. If he’s not, he is probably learning new obscure knowledge to use in the next local trivia event or get-together with friends.
