Courtney Mitchell knows the potential pitfalls of end-of-life planning. With nearly a decade of experience in elder law, she offers her clients a unique and comprehensive perspective for planning for life’s contingencies.

Courtney’s practice is largely focused on estate planning, probate and trust administration, asset protection, and Medicaid and special needs planning.

Her background in elder law helps her spot issues in estate planning that other trust and estates attorneys without the specialty might miss. She is dedicated to helping her clients understand complex legal processes and ensuring they are well-informed of legal issues throughout their work together.

She is experienced in advising individuals and families on protecting assets from the expenses of long-term care, planning for individuals with special needs, and serving in various fiduciary capacities.

Courtney also assists clients with transactional matters including contract drafting and review, real estate transactions, business formation and governance.

In her transactional practice, her aim is to ensure small and mid-size business clients are set up for success from the start. She works to simplify their legal issues and shift the burden of the legal issues away from them so they can focus on their businesses.
