Scott Mitchell began Scott Mitchell and Associates over twenty years ago, developing innovations in public affairs and litigation communications techniques long before these disciplines even had a name.

Mitchell became the first communications professional in America to offer his litigation and advocacy insights for Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit. Mitchell's pioneering blend of public affairs skills, campaign tactics and trial and litigation support techniques are utilized by many of America's top corporations, trade associations and lawyers.

One other aspect sets Mitchell apart from many in his field: his record of business success. Few other consultants know the field of business and law like Scott Mitchell: not only is he President of his two-decades old firm, but he is also an officer and shareholder of several successful management consulting firms in Texas and Oklahoma.

In addition to his companies, he serves as television and radio analyst for CBS affiliate NEWS 9 and for WKY-AM in Oklahoma City. His firm performs a number of pro bono services for child advocacy groups, voluntary health organizations and seniors' groups in such states as Florida, Oklahoma and Texas. Mitchell is a member of the Board of Directors of Community Health Charities (CHC) and Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) in Oklahoma. He is also an active member in the Association for Continuing Legal Education (ACLEA) and the American Society of Trial Consultants (ASTC), where he serves on the Visibility Committee.

Mitchell is a 1980 Graduate of the University of Oklahoma School of Journalism and prior to beginning his company he was a television news producer at the NBC affiliate in Oklahoma City, and later the Public Information Officer at the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs.

Scott and his wife Kandyce live in Oklahoma City and are raising three children Sean, Liberty and Joey.
