Best Complex Business Dispute Lawyer!!
I did some research to find the best business attorney in the area and Brian Mulhall was rated the best. He did more than an OUTSTANDING Job!!!! I had a Very complex business dispute which most attorneys couldn't even wrap their heads around. Not only did he completely understand my case and all the business law surrounding it, but he got me the best possible outcome. I can't recommend someone higher than Mr. Mulhall!!

Simply the best
Brian Mulhall is my new attorney for life. I found him on Avvo and am so glad I did. He went above and beyond my expectations and will be attorney for any of my legal needs in the future. He is caring, reliable, trustworthy and very professional. He has a passion for his clients and for the law and that reflects in the care that I got. I thank him for all of his hard work and dedication.

Legal Assistance
I engaged Brian to provide me with legal options on a fixed fee basis. The options he provided were valuable for my case and he provided these options to me in timely manner. He went above and beyond to explain all of my options and made it very clear that I understood each option in entirety. I am grateful for that commitment that he has to his clients to make sure they are well informed. You don't get that type of service from others in his business. Brian, thank you and I would recommend your services to anyone.

Definitely recommended
I was selling my home and engaged Brian to help me draft a home purchase contract for a sale by owner deal. He was professional, quick, responsive, and knowledgeable even though I needed a few specialty items included. I was selling a property in the DC area and found no issues with his office location being out of town. I would highly recommend using Mulhall Law.

M.P. - in-house counsel at large corporation
Brian was engaged to negotiate complex corporate contracts for our company and performs above and beyond the high level expected of him. He anticipates needs and acts with sound judgement. Diligently working to understand both our business needs and those of opposing parties, he works to find creative solutions. Truly, the most direct thing I can say about Brian is that I trust him greatly.
