About me

Richard Mulhearn has more than 25
years of experience as a trial lawyer. 
His passion for justice and his professional manner have earned him the
respect and admiration of clients, peers, adversaries and judges.  He started out as an Assistant Prosecutor (Assistant
District Attorney) in New Jersey.  Since
relocating to Massachusetts in the 1980’s, he has been actively engaged in
trial practice, mastering the law in a number of legal areas.  Overall, his specialty has been representing
individuals against large and powerful entities.  Mr. Mulhearn brings that passion and skill to the defense of
persons accused by the Commonwealth of drunk driving or OUI.  Drunk driving defense is a highly technical
and frequently changing area of law. 
Mr. Mulhearn studies with the top experts and practitioners in the
country to stay on the cutting edge and to be able to provide the best defense
and advice to his clients.  He is
passionate about protecting people from the increasingly harsh and
disproportionate penalties of the drunk driving laws, including long periods of
license loss.  He believes that being
charged with OUI can happen to just about anyone and that it often comes from
being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
