Peter J. Mueller
Mr. Mueller has been practicing law for forty years and is licensed in California and Illinois (Retired). Graduating with honors from Loyola Law School in 1972, he was selected to associate with Chicago’s leading corporate firm and was also invited to become a Visiting Professor of Corporate Law at Loyola, where he had held the position as Assistant Dean of the Business School during his law studies.
At Loyola Law School he taught third year law students the core course in business law while he worked for General Motors, American Oil Company, The Chicago Tribune Company, and the Catholic Bishop of the Chicago Archdiocese while associated with Kirkland & Ellis. Mr. Mueller is also listed in Strathmore’s Who’s Who.
In 1974 Mr. Mueller was invited by Overton, Lyman & Prince of Los Angeles to join the firm to provide insurance defense legal services generally and in medical malpractice cases. In 1977 he opened his own law office in La Jolla and Rancho Santa Fe as a member of the firm, Woolley, Mullin & Mueller, focusing his practice on family law and civil litigation.
Mr. Mueller founded Father’s Rights Law Center® following the break up of his family through divorce in 1982. From this personal experience, and with encouragement from United Fathers of America, colleagues and clients, he established Father’s Rights Law Center®, and has specialized his practice for the professional father ever since.
In his position as director of Father’s Rights Law Center®, Mr. Mueller, a Certified Family Law Specialist, benefits from his early litigation training and experience and will involve when needed, qualified and respected expert child psychologists and psychiatrists, business economists, certified public accountants and vocational counselors in San Diego to assist Father’s Rights Law Center® clientele to obtain balanced and equitable custody sharing arrangements and property settlements.
As the father of seven children, ages twenty-two to forty-four, Mr. Mueller brings to his family practice the personal experience of his own family’s break up by divorce. The calculus of that experience has defined Father’s Rights Law Center’s® promotion of its specialization for the benefit of fathers and husbands, not only as a career resource, but as a lesson learned in the trenches where more than reputation was at stake.
