Few lawyers have won so many battles for Christian schools, churches, resisting bank foreclosures – all, plus more, were cases David Mitchell took on. The internationally-watched Noah’s Ark case brought by a sceptic was one of his great victories.
A graduate of the Universities of Tasmania, Oxford, Essex and Strasbourg, Dr Mitchell served British, African and Australian governments. He was more qualified than probably any other magistrate, judge or attorney-general in Australia, yet he never sought prominence. His defence at the United Nations of Lesotho (Africa) in its dispute with South Africa won $113million for this tiny state.
Retiring from public service at 45, he became a minister and served as church planter, pastor and procurator. Continuing to use his legal skills in Christ’s service – he did so, amazingly neither seeking or accepting remuneration for his services. Other lawyers also offer their counsel pro bono at times, but none ever like David Charles Mitchell.
