Mitchell McCrea feels a deep respect for and duty to his clients and works tirelessly on their behalf to ensure their hard work is repaid in full. He believes it is his calling to serve those who have been injured, and it is his responsibility to return them to the greatest degree of normalcy possible.
Throughout his law career, Mitchell has ardently supported those who most need his help across a wide range of industries, including oil and gas, trucking, aviation, healthcare, and environmental disasters. His teams have negotiated hundreds of settlements worth tens of millions of dollars against corporations like (i) BP, Transocean and Halliburton on behalf of individuals and businesses adversely affected by the 2010 BP Oil Spill; (ii) automobile, tire, and seatbelt manufacturers on behalf of those injured in crashes because of faulty tires, roofs, and/or seatbelts; and (iii) Syngenta on behalf more than 1,000 affected community water systems that supply water to over 37 million Americans whose water was contaminated by the weed killer Atrazine. In the latter case, McCrea’s team negotiated a $105 million nationwide class settlement against Syngenta and, for his role in the case, McCrea was named a Finalist for American Association of Justice’s Trial Lawyer of the Year, one of the nation’s highest legal honors.
Born in Roswell, New Mexico and having grown up on a working cattle and sheep ranch in between Roswell and Ruidoso, Mitchell is no stranger to hard work and commitment. Mitchell and his brother still own and operate their family ranch today. As a child, time not spent in school, playing sports, or doing chores on the ranch, was filled with 4-H, FFA, livestock shows, and junior rodeos. His interest in the law started in high school when he worked as a runner for the Hinkle law firm in Roswell. Channeling the hard work ethic instilled in his youth, Mitchell earned a Bachelor’s Degree in History with Honors from Principia College, a Master’s Degree in History from the University of New Mexico, and a law degree cum laude from Texas Tech.
The diligence and character developed growing up on the ranch has never left Mitchell, professionally or in his commitment to improving his community. He is currently the President-Elect of the Texas Horse Park Foundation and on the Board of Directors of the McCrea Ranch Foundation. He is a past member of the Executive Board of Directors of the Texas Stampede Rodeo (that served various children’s charities) and an active parishioner of Munger Place Church. McCrea met his wife, Kim, in law school, and they have two elementary school-age children.
If something WRONG happens to you, let Mitchell be the RIGHT…by your side.
