Mitchell & Associates began in 1988 as the sole general practice of Gloria (Grinnan) Mitchell, located in downtown Indianapolis, and in association with Landwerlen & Rothkopf and Pardieck Gill & Vargo. Ms. Mitchell later joined with Gayle Mack and Robin Niehaus, in an association of attorneys that focused primarily on family law and related issues.
In 2001, Robin Kelly joined the association and in 2002 Ms. Mitchell relocated her practice to the northside of Indianapolis and formally became Mitchell & Associates. In 2005, Laura Gaskill and Amy Carson joined the firm.
The firm relocated in April 2008 to its new office at 9959 Crosspoint Boulevard, Indianapolis, Indiana 46256. The new location provides expanded space, multiple conference rooms for mediations and free parking on site.
