Celebrating their 10th anniversary this year, the Tigger Stavola Foundation recently honored Shareholder Mitchell Ansell. Involved since the foundation’s 2013 inception, Mitchell was recognized for his unwavering support and efforts to increase awareness of opioid addiction’s tragic effects. Aside from his personal connection to the Stavola family, he vigorously defends parents and children affected by substance abuse when they face legal challenges. Mitchell has donated his time to educate students about underage drinking, DWI, and possession of controlled dangerous substances during prom season for nearly 20 years.
As chair of the Firm’s criminal defense department, Mitchell devotes his practice to criminal defense and municipal court defense. Over three decades of practice, he has worked with well-known clients on high-profile cases. Mitchell is a past president of the Monmouth Bar Association and actively gives his time to various local charities.
The Tigger Stavola Foundation is dedicated to combating the opioid epidemic and changing the stigma surrounding addiction.
