About Mitchell Keiter

Mitchell Keiter is a graduate of Stanford University and UCLA School of Law. He started his career with the California Department of Justice as the youngest deputy attorney general in the Criminal Division statewide. He briefed hundreds of cases before state and federal appellate courts, and has argued six times before the California Supreme Court.

He was invited to join the Supreme Court as a Chambers Attorney. There he drafted dozens of opinions in civil and criminal cases. The experience familiarized him with the full spectrum of procedural and substantive issues shaping California appellate law. He saw firsthand how the Court selects cases for review and how it decides them. He remains involved with the Court through his volunteer work on the Board of the California Supreme Court Historical Society, for which he has published several articles on California’s legal development.

He returned to Southern California as an associate professor at Western State University College of Law in Fullerton. He taught courses in evidence, criminal law and procedure, and appellate advocacy. He coached all the school’s moot court teams, training young attorneys in the art of appellate practice, and supervised the Law Review’s annual review of California Supreme Court decisions.

Now in private practice, he represents clients before state and federal appellate courts. The State Bar’s Board of Legal Specialization recognized him as a Certified Appellate Specialist in 2010, one of only 290 statewide.
