Mitchell Pritchett is a serious, low key kind of guy. In other words, he's the exact opposite of his partner, Cameron. But opposites attract and Mitchell seems to have found the perfect counterbalance for his sometimes uptight, worrying ways. Mitch is an outstanding attorney who won an award for distinguished service in the field of environmental law which sat on the mantle next to partner Cam's bass-catching trophy.
Mitchell has always been a little competitive with his sister, Claire, and he knows that his dad, Jay, isn't completely comfortable with the fact that he's gay. Guess that's why it was so hard for him to tell the family that he and Cam adopted a beautiful baby girl. Of course, his family welcomed Lily with open arms. Mitch and Cam's attempts to adopt again have been an uphill struggle that took an emotional toll. That's too bad. Any baby out there would be lucky to have such a cautious, worrisome, overprotective, completely loving dad like Mitchell Pritchett.
