“The Department has greatly benefited from Mitch’s 20 years of legal experience and his well-reasoned defense of the agency in the courtroom and appellate briefs. Always willing to provide feedback and support to support co-workers, his generosity of spirit is quite refreshing. Informed by his military experience, he quickly sorts through a myriad of facts to identify the salient issues. His contributions, kind nature, and interest in the well-being of co-workers makes the office a better place to work. I am tremendously grateful I have had the opportunity to work with Mitch!
