Our Office

Experienced Southern Illinois Legal Service

A. Ben Mitchell commenced the practice of law in 1966 with the Craig & Craig oil law firm.  In 1978, he departed and began an independent practice which has evolved into Mitchell Law Office, P.C.  The legal practice has developed into concentrated areas—from the needs of small business, family financial needs and estate planning, and all aspects of the oil and gas industry.  He is a published author and has pursued many appellate reviews of trial court decisions.  He represents professional fiduciaries and lawyers in matters concerning their duties and responsibilities.  When an amicable resolution to a problem is not attainable, litigation is aggressively pursued.   The firm's range of legal concentrations includes the following areas:

  • Oil and gas law—The firm represents all aspects of the oil and natural gas industry, with knowledge of both producer and landowner perspectives.
  • Small business law—The firm facilitates business organization, operational issues, and business growth through ultimate sale or other disposition.
  • Litigation—Mitchell Law Office, P.C. has extensive litigation experience, particularly in business and commercial matters.
  • Estate planning—Basic concepts are gleaned from books, but experience demonstrates the need for care and attention to achieve desired objectives.
