Amy Mitchell, Entertainment Lawyer at Amy E. Mitchell, PLLC, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Lawyers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in counseling in the legal and business aspects of the music and film industries.

Ms. Mitchell founded her boutique law firm in Austin, Texas in 2004 and has prospered as a transactional entertainment lawyer with a focus on music, television, and film issues. She maintains a diverse creative clientele of both established and emerging talent (songwriters, authors, artists) as well as numerous record producers, filmmakers, and independent production companies. She primarily drafts, reviews, and negotiates entertainment industry contracts and provides advice and counsel pertaining to the legal and business aspects of the music and film industries.

After earning her Bachelor of Arts in 1999 in Economics and Spanish with a minor in French from the University of Texas at Austin, Ms. Mitchell served as the Office Manager of the Texas Music Office (TMO) from 2000 to 2001, where she researched, developed, and edited the first print edition of Texas Talent Register and gained valuable insight into the Texas music industry. Determined to become a music lawyer, she left the TMO to attend the highly-regarded University of Texas School of Law in Fall 2001. She then supplemented her legal education by taking coursework in international law and media studies in 2003 at University College London before returning to Austin and completing her Doctor of Jurisprudence in 2004 from UT Law.

In addition to her legal work, Ms. Mitchell is incredibly active in professional entertainment law organizations, having served as chair and/or council member of the Texas Entertainment and Sports Law Section for more than a decade as well as founding the Entertainment and Sports Law Section of the Austin Bar Association, which she chaired for four years. She is also Course Director for the annual Entertainment Law 101 program and Co-Director of the Entertainment Law Institute. Staying true to her musician roots, she has also continued to perform as a vocalist, keyboardist, and ukulele player in several Austin ensembles. This is on top of her biggest job of all – mom of three.

Ms. Mitchell attributes her success as an entertainment lawyer to persistence, networking, self-education, and a little bit of luck, which are the same skills that she encourages her creative clients to nurture. She strives to give back to her creative and entertainment lawyer communities by continuing to serve as an educator, legal mentor, and artist rights advocate. To this end, Ms. Mitchell is excited to launch in 2022, which allows her to further support aspiring entertainment lawyers and serve as a resource for creative professionals using her best “mama bear” voice and without all the legalese.
