Review Michael Mullin

About Me

After decades of practicing as a trial attorney, I came to the realization that mediation was a less expensive, less stressful, and quicker process for my clients than traditional litigation. So despite my love of the courtroom I transitioned my practice to conducting mediations full-time. Now, having conducted more than 2,000 mediations in numerous states across the country, I have become even more passionate about the mediation process. I would like to think that I am one of the hardest working mediators around, frequently conducting mediations on Saturdays and Sundays to accommodate those who wish to retain me as a mediator. Almost every night of my life is dedicated to reviewing and understanding the materials submitted for the next day's mediation. While I suspect that few people would willingly follow my work schedule, I consider myself extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to practice a profession that I love almost every single day of the year, and to have a wonderful family who have permitted me to devote so much time to my profession.
