    Robert Mitchell is amazing - and I cannot thank him enough for his good care and hard work. My financial advisor made a catastrophic mistake and refused to admit that it was his fault - and this betrayal caused grief that cannot even be measured. Robert spent time to listen and care when I needed help and protection. Robert took my case very seriously and handled all of the steps required to make this right expertly. Without Robert’s good care and kindness, I would have suffered enormous loss.
