About Michael

Learn Michael’s areas of practice.

My primary focus is representation of clients in divorce and family law matters.

I provide frank and honest advice as to both the benefits, and more importantly, the challenges that will lie ahead.

I have extensive exposure and experience in the negotiation and drafting of many types of marital agreements including pre-nuptial agreements, post-nuptial agreements and separation agreements.

My spirit and passion for a clients needs permeates my work product; and thus allows for the efficient and effective completion of their case.

Ethics is of paramount importance at The Mueller Law Office. What sets me apart is that I always give the same honest advice to my clients as I would my own Mother.

I am an aggressive advocate for my clients. I am the founder of the Mueller Law Firm and I'm dedicated to providing my clients with personalized legal advice and one-on-one attention. As an experienced practitioner of family law, I know that no two family disputes are exactly alike. That is why I work closely with each client to understand the details of their case and establish a personal relationship. I provide the individualized legal advice you need to successfully resolve your dispute. I'll work hard to answer any questions you may have and guide you through every aspect of your case from start to finish.

Mueller is a great attorney who goes above and beyond. He knows his craft very well and goes above and beyond for his clients. He makes you feel very comfortable and is very professional in how he handles his business. Greatest decision I’ve made was to hire Mr. Mueller !

Choose Mueller!
Mr. Mueller takes time to listen to what you have to say and explains his strategy to you thoroughly. No matter his case load, Mr, Mueller always made himself available to discuss my case with me, whether it be an update or to discuss hypothetical scenarios. Mr. Mueller has a strong knowledge of the law and was able to help alleviate the stress my divorce had on me.

My lawyer really took the time to understand me and my complicated situation. He is attentive, smart, and really goes all out for me. I am very content with my results and couldn't be happier with the choice of attorney's I made.

Honest and judicious
I know Michael had my best interests at heart. He was always realistic. He always explained my options so that I could make my own decisions. When I first met with Michael I just wanted to get a settlement over and done with. The initial settlement would have been to my husband's benefit. When Michael fully understood my husband's and my situation, he did tell me I was leaving a lot of money on the table and that the laws were in my favor, but in the end it was my decision. I decided to go after what I was entitled to, because I felt Michael had my back. Our relationship felt like a true collaboration and I could not have gone all the way to the end without him. Michael won't waste your time or your money. You might have to chase after him every now and then, but I have no regrets about hiring him to handle my divorce and I am happy with the outcome.

Custody/child support
Mr Mueller addressed all my issues every step of the way. He stood by my side everytime I needed him. He was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Without Mr Mueller I know I would have not made it through trial as successful as I did. Thank you for all you've done for my kids and I.

Honest and Efficient Lawyer
Michael is a good lawyer. I have made a very good decision by hiring him. He always answers me promptly. He gives you personal attention. He is honest and efficient: he doesn't do the sales pitch nor he does sugarcoat of what he can do for you. He just do it! And do it very well! He will tell you exactly what you should expect and not expect from him. I will also do a follow-up rating once he closes my case.

An Answer to a Prayer
In my first with meeting Michael, there is a level of comfort and understanding. During such a difficult time, I felt frazzled and anxious. Michael was able to explain things to me clearly and was patient and kind in understanding my specific dilemmas and concerns. I was terribly frightened before meeting Michael. Prior to our meeting he was very responsive to my messages and calls and continues to connect with me in challenging times. I now feel that I have an intelligent, capable advocate and that things will take time but they will turn out fine. I have confidence in him and rely on him for advice and recommendations. For certain, he is an intelligent and capable attorney--it's the type of person that Michael is that makes all of the difference for me--kind, caring, compassionate and understanding--a good listener--a good heart.

Way to go!
Michael made this very unpleasent experience so much easier! He was great all around , very knowledgable, always reachable and way less expensive than other attorneys.

Caring Attorney
Michael has given me legal guidance that has prepared my in many ways for the long arduous process of divorce. I was not aware of so many things, and thought I would not be able to afford the kids without a second income. I am not only mentally prepared but have the tools to overcome this obstacle in my life. I don't know if the money that I pay you is enough, as having you by my side has been priceless. I hope you have a very successful career!!!!!

Negotiator
I am an artist and had the benefit of having Michael in my life. He was reffered by a friend and he helped me negotiate a contract with a large gallery that would have normally ate me for breakfast. I am an artist not a negotiator or someone that understands the dynamics of contracts. I am so thankful and I apologize for not putting up this review earlier but I have been so busy due to my work being displayed in the gallery. Thank you Michael. You will always be a friend that has good art work in your home!

Great Experience
Michael Todd Mueller is a gem. I came to him during a really bad time in my life and he made the experience a lot more pleasurable to than I had envisioned. I highly recommend Michael and will continue to use him for other legal matters.

Great New York Attorney!
Michael Todd Mueller is an attorney with moral ethics unrivaled by others in the industry. I trust Michael without exception. As far as being responsive, I am able to get Michael on the phone in the middle of the night to offer expert legal advice. He even goes to the extent of reviewing case law on his off time. I highly recommend Michael and I think you will be satisfied with his services. I am highly critical so my recommendation should carry extra weight.

Watch out
Mueller failed to finish filing my divorce and did not communicate this to me. In fact, he refused to communicate with me at all. He did not answer emails, texts, or phone calls. Five to six months after I should have been divorced, I had to hire a second lawyer to finish the job. Mueller ignored three requests (mine, my second attorney, and the court's) to turn over my file. It took another year for my divorce to be finalized. In addition, I had to "negotiate" reimbursement of my additional legal fees with Mueller. Lastly, I, the injured party, had to sign a waiver before Mueller would consider reimbursing me for the additional legal fees. All in all a costly and very traumatic experience. I do not recommend this attorney.
