Mitchell Smith
Attorney

Aut inveniam viam aut faciam, “I shall either find a way or make one”, once uttered by Hannibal seeking a path over the Alps, is the code by which Mitch approaches the practice of law.  Blessed with tenacity, creativity, curiosity, and native ability Mitch takes seriously client advocacy. Coming to the law from a diverse background in a number of roles in various industries including movie making, real estate brokering, and energy consulting, provides Mitch a depth of insight and experience into people and systems.  Following internships with Colorado’s Fourth Judicial District Attorney’s Office and Colorado’s Fourth Judicial District Court, Mitch graduated from Washburn University School of Law with honors.  Upon admission to the Colorado Bar Mitch began practicing with Anderson & Travis, P.C. in diverse practice areas.  Mitch then opened his own firm, where his practice focused on civil litigation in a number of areas including real estate, probate, personal injury, commercial, and domestic matters.  As fate would have it, Mitch returned to Travis Law Group, PLLC where he continues his advocacy for clients.  Not only does Mitch serve his clients, but also serves his community as evidenced by his tenure as a Commissioner on a County planning commission, ten years of coaching high school mock trial, and serving as a board member on a not-for-profit youth soccer organization.  Abraham Lincoln once said “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the ax.”  Mitch regularly sharpens his ax at the National Institute of Trial Advocates (NITA).  As a disciple of the age old tradition of learning through the spoken word, Mitch is an avid storyteller that employs his love of storytelling to both entertain and persuade.
