Mitchiner Law, LLC

Mr. Mitchiner decided to start an employment law practice because in his experience most employment lawyers have never actually worked a blue collar job. Most of them went to college and then straight to law school. Mr. Mitchiner did not take this path. He has worked a job like yours and he understands the pain and the issues you are going through.

Mr. Mitchiner started an estate planning practice because he believes there is a large segment of the population, that believes that they do not need an estate plan for whatever reason, and also believes that they cannot afford an estate plan. Mr. Mitchiner is hear to tell you that you do need one and you can afford it!! Contact Mitchiner Law, LLC today to get the process started.

Thomas H. Mitchiner graduated from Vermont Law School (VLS) in 2014 with a Juris Doctorate. In 2015, after an internship at the Environmental Protection Agency Region 8 in Denver, CO he obtained his Master’s in Environmental Law and Policy from VLS.

He was born in Albuquerque, NM. His first homes, in Sandia Park on the East side of the Sandia Mountains, was only 6 miles from Sandia Peak Ski. Proximity to skiing would influence every important decision in his life from that time forward. He excelled at skiing and in high school he moved to Vail, CO to ski race and train. He achieved some success in ski racing at the junior level and learned how to ski extremely well. After burning out he returned to Albuquerque, NM where despite his best efforts he graduated from Manzano High School in 2000.

Initially, he decided not to attend College, a decision that did not make his parents, with a PH.D. and a Master’s Degree, very happy. He worked for nearly a year as a door-to-door salesman selling trinkets to businesses around central New Mexico. He worked hard but did not make any money, and did not get to ski much. Realizing, that to have the life he wanted he needed some education he decided to go to school. He attended the University of Utah (the U), at his father’s suggestion, because of its proximity to the Wasatch Range.

Attending the U was great for him. He had a season pass at Alta, and he could ski any day he wanted. Eventually, his friend convinced him to try telemark skiing. This changed his life. He learned what it was like to learn something new. He had to become a beginner again at something very similar to what he was an expert at. He stuck at it, skied with some of the best telemark skiers in the world and got pretty good at it himself.

After graduating from the U in 2004 with a Bachelor of Arts in English, he briefly returned to New Mexico, and eventually moved to Jackson, WY to sell cars. If the Wasatch was undergraduate skiing for him, in the Teton’s he got his Ph. D. He made a few trips to South America, and after quitting his job selling cars, he used the money to spend a summer/winter in Las Lenas, Argentina.

He returned to Jackson, where he worked as a housekeeper at the Four Seasons until he decided to go to law school. His work as a housekeeper influences his work today. The work was extremely hard and thankless, and the Four Seasons treated its employees extremely well. This made him wonder what it was like for other employees with not so great employees.
