Jeffrey Mitchell Joins Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth
Washington-area based telecommunications, media, and technology law firm Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth has added Jeffrey A. Mitchell. He brings with him more than two decades of telecommunications experience both in private practice and in multiple roles for the Universal Service Administrative Co.
The constant for these endeavors is his interest in rural broadband and universal service. With USAC, he directed a $100 million compliance audit program of participants in the Universal Service Fund under close oversight from the FCC’s Inspector General. After leaving USAC, Jeff helped persuade the FCC to enlarge and modernize the Rural Health Care Federal Universal Service program — thus ensuring that health care providers would have the broadband capabilities to properly treat their patients.
Mitchell received his law degree from the Georgetown University Law Center. While there, he was a member of the Georgetown Journal of Law and Policy in International Business. He also earned an undergraduate degree from the University of Washington, majoring in English.
