Attorney Gregory Mitchell, the fourth generation of a local pioneer family, has returned and recently joined Marshall Grant, PLLC in Boca Raton.
The Mitchell family has a 96-year legacy here. His great-grandfather J.C. [Joe] Mitchell was a founder and Boca’s mayor for 11 years. He’s credited with bringing the Army Air Force base to Boca during WW II and returning the land to local residents and businesses afterward. J.C. Mitchell Elementary School was named after him. His wife Floy Cooke Mitchell was the first woman council member and helped found the Boca Raton Historical Society & Museum. Society curator Susan Gillis chronicled the couple for Palm Beach County History Online.
His father Bill Mitchell is the popular senior pastor at Boca Raton Community Church, where Greg is active in BocaLead. That’s the monthly gathering of 400 movers and shakers to discuss ethical business standards.
Q: How long did you work somewhere else?
A: Prior to joining Marshall Grant, PLLC, I worked for a boutique law firm in Palm Beach Gardens. I chose to return to Boca Raton because I wanted to work in the community where my wife and I plan to raise our family. It’s the city where I was born and raised and where my family has such strong ties.
Q: Why did you join Marshall Grant, PLLC?
A: Marshall Grant, PLLC has a way of focusing most on the client rather than billable hours, which is so attractive to me and unique in this industry.
Q: What kind of law do you practice?
A: I focus most of my practice on helping businesses and individuals with their corporate and real estate needs. I love helping families and businesses grow into their full potential, whether that is helping a family buy or sell their home or working alongside business woman and men to help shape the legal framework that will structure their business for success.
Q: I see you recently joined the board of Boca Helping Hands.
A: Yes. I am blessed to serve on the board of Boca Helping Hands. Although Boca is affluent, there are still people who need a loving, caring hand. I have been privileged to volunteer at Boca Helping Hands with my church but wanted to do more for the community that I love. I am excited to see how I can continue to serve and work with the team at Boca Helping Hands.
Q: How seriously do you take your role as a fourth-generation Mitchell?
A: I want to build into our community even more and see the people and families of our town prosper. We have a legacy in Boca and I know as a part of that I need to work hard to ensure that I leave the city of Boca Raton better than I found it.
