October Monthly Mixer
Catch up with Log Cabin Republicans of Phoenix at our monthly mixer at Sazerac in Downtown Phoenix! We will be joined by Rachel Mitchell, our current acting Maricopa County Attorney and candidate for Marciopa County Attorney.
Rachel Mitchell is an Arizona native and a veteran prosecutor with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office. For the past thirty years, she’s dedicated her career to protecting families by prosecuting crimes against children, ensuring the integrity of our legal system, and leading teams of prosecutors to hold dangerous criminals accountable.
She has served at all levels of the office. She has overseen teams of prosecutors for 17 years, including the sex-crimes bureau, which prosecutes crimes that involve child molestation and adult sexual assault. Mitchell has prosecuted hundreds of complex offenses, including charges against high-profile individuals.
In 2020, Mitchell was responsible for the creation of the MCAO Prosecution Integrity Unit, which is responsible for overseeing conviction integrity and concerns involving law enforcement misconduct. She has advocated strengthening crimes against children and sex assault laws in the state and has pushed for changes in the courtroom to comfort victims testifying in abuse cases. She regularly teaches on a variety of criminal justice topics and is a nationally-recognized speaker on sex assault and child abuse prosecution.
In 2019, she served as the acting Maricopa County Attorney after the appointment of Bill Montgomery to the Arizona Supreme Court. Previously, she was the Chief Deputy County Attorney, and Chief of the Special Victims Division.
In 2018, Mitchell rose to national prominence when she was requested by the Senate Judiciary Committee to serve as Nominations Investigative Counsel and question both Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh during Kavanaugh's widely publicized confirmation hearings for Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.
Mitchell received her law degree from Arizona State University and has an undergraduate degree in public administration and justice studies from Grand Canyon University.
