Do Not Go To Court Without an Attorney
After dealing with attorneys, judges and caseworkers as foster parents, we hired Chris Mulligan to be our voice in the courtroom. As a foster parent, you are often ignored or even bullied by attorneys and caseworkers, but Mr. Mulligan always made sure we were heard. He was clear and blunt with us regarding our adoption process. He never gave us hope where there was no hope and he was always straight-forward when it came to answering questions. He understands the adoptive and foster parent process, and he does not mince words when it comes to dealing with DCF or YFA or any of the case management services. He waded through the paperwork and made sure that the courts, the caseworkers and the attorneys understood our position. He fought for us and for the little boy we're adopting even when the courts reunified the child. Once the child came back into the "care" of the courts, Mr. Mulligan took every step possible to make sure we were not ignored or pushed around by DCF. When you hire an attorney, you want one who isn't afraid to protect his clients. Christopher Mulligan will and did fight for us every step of the way. Going to court with an attorney changes everything. We are extremely pleased with Mr. Mulligan's services and would never consider fostering or adopting again without him in our corner.

Custody case
Awesome lawyer!!!! I feel very secure with Christopher Mulligan as my attorney. He is very intelligent. He is aggressive yet respectful in court. His arguments are difficult to respond to a lot of times. He knows the law. You never will feel like you are not being heard in court with this man at your side. Very well liked and extremely recommended! ! If you feel that you need GREAT to happen for you in the courtroom-- Chris Mulligan is your attorney. Try him once and you will never have to wonder who to call for your legal needs again.

An attorney who has heart.
I have hired Mr.Milligan several times and he always goes above and beyond to do what is needed. It is very hard to find an attorney who actually cares about his clients . I have found that an attorney who genuinely cares for people is one who will fight your battles with you.that s what you get from this attorney. you can see it in his work and his outcome of his cases. I would recommend this man to anyone out there that needs an honest and hard working lawyer. Thank you Mr.Christopher Milligan you have helped make my family whole and I know you will continue to do great things.....

I didn't hire him but...
I received a consult with this attorney, he actually contacted me with concern regarding my legal issue. Bottom line, if I hadn't hired another attorney I would consider this attorney based on his character and knowledge. Thank you very much for your advice Mr. Mulligan!

Elite level professional
When trying to find the right lawyer, I spent days researching bios, reviews, and referrals. I decided to find someone who has the same interests I do, and puts their family above everything else. Chris does just that, and it shows in his work. He helped me start my business, helped my wife with a custody case, and pointed me in the right direction when it came to taking on my homeowners insurance. My family will be forever grateful, and I know who to call in the future. Thank you Chris. You have forever changed my idea of what a "lawyer" should be.

Chris was my attorney during my divorce. My now ex-wife had me baker acted during our proceedings, which prevented contact with my attorney. He decided to drop me as a client due to failure to communicate. I am INCREDIBLY DISAPPOINTED in how my case was handled. My ex-wife was given our house that my father gave her $10k for, she was given full custody of my son, and I was given "visitation at the mother's discretion". Since my divorce, I have TRIED to communicate with the attorney, who has simply said that I am SOL and that he WILL NOT represent me (despite already having taken the retainer and doing NO ACTUAL WORK). I have also only seen my son a handful of times, all supervised by the mother. I am fully paid up on my child support, and I am SICK OF GETTING WALKED ON BY MY EX-WIFE, THE LEGAL SYSTEM, AND MOST OF ALL, THE PEOPLE WHO WERE PAID TO REPRESENT ME. WILL NOT RECOMMEND.

Response from Christopher Mulligan January 30, 2020
I have spoken with this client on numerous occasions, free of charge, regarding the issues he had during his divorce that resulted in my firm having too withdraw. We made several attempts to reach out to the client to no avail during our representation. Divorce and custody disputes are oftentimes the most difficult situation we will deal with in life. We specialize in dealing with the types of cases that can cause heartache on all sides.
