Mr. Mitchell came to the Commission from the Criminal Division of the United States Department of Justice, where he has served as a Trial Attorney since 1991. In 1992, Mr. Mitchell was recruited to join the Criminal Division's Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section. These elite federal prosecutors litigate cases under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act and provide oversight, consultation and guidance on investigations and prosecutions of illegal uses of advanced technology.

Mr. Mitchell is co-author of the Department's intellectual property rights prosecution manual, and he has developed expertise in many aspects of crime relating to computers and computer networks. He has served as a primary legal consultant to the FBI's Computer Analysis and Response Team (CART), and has provided guidance on complex investigations to federal, state and local law enforcement authorities.

On behalf of the Computer Crime Section, Mr. Mitchell has made numerous public appearances, speeches and presentations pertaining to computer crime, electronic search and seizure, criminal intellectual property enforcement, and electronic evidence issues. He has also assumed an active role in the Section's growing legislative responsibilities, drafting and commenting on legislative proposals with substantial bearing on the investigation and prosecution of high-technology crime.

In the international arena, Mr. Mitchell has participated in several inter-departmental working groups assembled by the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative and the Department of Commerce, and has served as the Department of Justice representative on delegation visits to China, Mexico, Ukraine and Russia. He has also served as host to many international delegations visiting the Department of Justice.

Mr. Mitchell earned his law degree from the Florida State University College of Law, where he served as Editor-in-Chief of the Law Review. After completing a clerkship with the Honorable Sidney M. Aronovitz, United States District Court, Southern District of Florida, he joined the Criminal Division of the Department of Justice through its Honor Graduate Program.
