I was born in Manhattan, New York in 1960. I grew up in Brooklyn, Long Island and North Jersey. After attending Boston University and graduating in 1982 I attended Rutgers Law School in Camden, New Jersey. I graduated in 1985 and began working primarily as a criminal attorney at the Law Offices of Jeffrey Evan Gold. In 1987 I moved to the firm that eventually became known as Garber, Kasten, Jarve and Mullen. I began as an associate concentrating in Family Law. In 1995 I became a partner in the firm and at the time I was practicing exclusively Family Law. I became a Certified Matrimonial Law Attorneys. I continued with Garber, Kasten, Jarve and Mullen until 2002 when I started my own firm. In 2003 I was joined by Brian T. Reagan, Esquire and the firm Mullen & Reagan, LLC was formed. That entity ended in December, 2014 and Mullen Law was formed. Currently I practice Family Law and Mediation, which includes divorce, custody, parenting time, child support, domestic violence, step-parent adoption and guardianships. I also handle residential real estate and landlord eviction procedures. I have been involved in interstate and international custody disputes. I have handled divorces involving complex business interests and closed corporations. I have represented thousands of clients both male and female and my practice does not discriminate based on gender, age or any stereotypes. I seek to advise my clients realistically as to what outcome they can expect in their matter in order to have a well informed client base and keep their legal fees manageable.
