Biographical/Historical Note

The law firm of Mitchell and Mitchell developed from the partnership of Eugene Muse Mitchell and his brother Gordon Forrest Mitchell. Eugene Muse Mitchell (1866-1944) graduated from the University of Georgia in 1885 and completed professional courses from the University of Georgia Law School in 1886. Gordon Forrest Mitchell (1872-1956) received his Bachelor of Law degree from the University of Georgia in 1891. The Mitchell brother began their careers in criminal law and later specialized in probate and equity practice. The firm's prestige in real estate law developed in the early years of the twentieth century and continued throughout the careers of Eugene and Gordon Mitchell.

Stephens Mitchell (1896-1983), the only son of Eugene Mitchell, joined the firm in 1919 and, like his father and uncle, developed a keen interest in real estate law. Stephens Mitchell was a graduate of the University of Georgia and attended Harvard University Law School until April 1917; his studies were interrupted by entry into the armed forces. Upon discharge, her returned to receive a L.L.B. degree from the Atlanta Law School in 1919. He taught real property law at the Woodrow Wilson College of Law in Atlanta beginning in 1935 and authored Real Property in Georgia.

The firm of Mitchell and Mitchell dissolved in 1956. In 1957, Stephens Mitchell, Clarke, and Anderson formed and this firm evolved by 1960 to Mitchell, Clarke, Pate, and Anderson.
