    I feel comfortable and fortunate to have Lisa as my attorney. A special thanks to all her workswith my case. I made a wrong mistake during my stressful time of my life. I was scare and did not know how to handle. It was my first time I ever run into situation. I had a bad experience with attorney in the past when was helping friend tried to find attorney. I found Lisa's from her website. I contacted and sent her messagei. I feel comfortable after our first meeting with Lisa. She was able to explained and answer all my questions patiently. She also provided me recommendation and proposal and the outcome of result. Lisa was patiently listen my side of story what drove me make wrong mistake at that time. I feel completely comfortable to trust her works.

    • I recommend Mariko Mulligan.

    A few months ago, I was approaching my first court date with no attorney, and I didn't feel like I could tell anyone, or ask for help out of embarrassment. Finally I looked around, and found Lisa through a mutual friend once removed. I cannot even say how grateful I am to have found Lisa. I've never needed to hire a lawyer before, but if I ever do again, I know where to look. Lisa is kind, professional, understanding, honest, and very good at what she does. She worked hard to make sure the court proceedings went well, answered all of my questions without seeming annoyed at all, and has been more than fair regarding her retainer. With these legal troubles behind me I can sleep a little easier, but only thanks to Lisa.
    Thank you Lisa.

    • I recommend Mariko Mulligan.

    All of the sudden I ended up in a situation where I needed a lawyer. It was a stressful time. I am so fortunate that someone referred Lisa to me. She really was there for me. She understood and anticipated what I needed and really got the job done. She was available by phone, email, and text, and took the time to listen and explain things patiently. My wife was impressed by her also.

    I was equally impressed by how fairly she billed. She sent an itemized bill showing the time spent and was very generous. Another lawyer was going to charge me a flat rate that was twice as much.

    She understood the court we were dealing with and I know she got me the best result possible.

    I'm happy to recommend Lisa to anyone.

    • I recommend Mariko Mulligan.
    • I hired Mariko 6-12 months ago.
    • Mariko handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I feel uncommonly lucky to have found Lisa Mulligan when I needed a criminal defense lawyer for the first time in my life, a situation I would have never anticipated before and felt entirely unprepared for. During the initial visit to her office I met a smiling, gentle and discreet person ready to give her unreserved and sharp attention to her client's case. She listened with sensitivity and understanding of a professional psychologist, nonjudgmental, astutely looking for all factual details that might have both positive and negative impact on my hearing at court. She considered potential extenuating circumstances and people we might turn to for professional opinion that could influence the course of action undertaken by the prosecutor. Her explanation of what I could expect at every stage of the court proceedings and what the most likely outcomes might be helped me to regain lost sense of control. Her calm, competent, sympathetic presence greatly helped to reduce overwhelming anxiety and gave me ability to cope smoothly with demands of the case and my normal everyday responsibilities.
    Subsequently Ms. Mulligan arranged the schedule of upcoming court hearings so that it a month-long visit to my aging mother. She kept me informed of all developments occurring in pursuance of the plan she had prepared. She was always accessible, promptly responding to e-mail or phone calls, ready to meet face to face. Throughout the case I felt secure knowing that I am in experienced hands expertly working for the best possible outcome. Eventually she was able to obtain the order of continuance which, after a specified period of time without violation of criminal law, ends in dismissal of the case and leaves my records clean.
    THANK YOU Ms. Mulligan!

    • Mariko handled my Domestic Violence matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    The Meriam Webster's Dictionary defines the word excellence as, "exceptionally high quality," and "a quality that gives something special worth." This description perfectly and effortlessly defines Lisa Mulligan. When I was allegedly charged with Domestic Violence, I knew I was wrongfully accused and I needed someone to believe and fight for me. When I first met with Lisa, she immediately put me at ease and gave me the confidence I sorely needed that the case would be handled appropriately. That is exactly what took place in the case, and I am freely able to write a review about Lisa today because of it. When considering Lisa Mulligan to represent you, keep in mind that you are going to have a first-rate attorney in your hands. I HIGHLY recommend Lisa Mulligan to anyone, and you should have full confidence that you are retaining someone that will give you the upper echelon of service.

    It is so very important to chose an attorney that you have chemistry with. Lisa is very attentive and listens and understands. She expects honesty from her clients and no games. She really practices what she preaches and with such devotion for getting her clients true justice.
    In my case she represented me perfectly resulting in dismissal of a false charge.
    Thank you Lisa

    • Mariko handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Ms. Mulligan is a great example of a truly caring and Trustworthy Person and lawyer. My case was caused by a mistake I made with a Relationship that had ended. I have never been in trouble with the Law before and had never had to deal with a situation were I may of had to face Jail Time. Ms Mulligan was understanding, Responsive, knowledgable. She helped keep my mind at ease, Kept me informed continually and always was on time. Since I lived 200 miles away she worked very hard to limit the impact on my Personal and work life. There was never one time that I felt rushed in a conversation via phone or in person. From the First phone call before my arraignment She showed complete caring and patience. She also was very upfront with all of the Legal ramifications both Positive and Negative. She was 100% knowledgable with how each and every court date would go. The ability to overlook and understand that good people make mistakes was refreshing and greatly appreciated. The outcome of my case was dismissed and Charges dropped. This wasn't because I wasn't at fault in my case but the fact that Ms. Mulligan understood the specifics. She was able to work with the DA and judge for the best outcome possible. No Jail, No Bail, No impact to my present or Future. It was Nice to find a lawyer in the legal system that didn't give the impression it was only about Money. If you are looking for a Lawyer that is genuine in her profession and as a person Ms Mulligan will be the best Choice for your needs.

    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Ms. Mulligan is clearly an effective attorney. I believe her strong advocacy skills and attention to detail hastened dismissal of my case. But two things in particular struck me.

    She has unusual empathy for her clients. Ms Mulligan really seemed to have concern for my plight. She listened to me, and took the time necessary. At no point did I feel rushed. My case was not among the more serious charges she has handled. Yet she gave it the care and attention to achieve the best possible result, and in a timely manner.

    Furthermore, she was accessible. I have occasion to deal with various professionals (only a criminal defense attorney once, thank goodness), so I know how difficult they can be to reach. E-mails and phone messages were always promptly returned - that is, if she didn't pick up right away as often was the case.

    The ordeal of this criminal charge was stressful, But Ms. Mulligan's demeanor and responsiveness gave me such confidence I was in the best of hands.
