At the top of the heap
John is an excellent lawyer who will go above and beyond in representation of his clients. He is accessible, knowledgable and direct. He will not mislead. John is what you would call a "straigh shooter" who tells it like it is. If you find a need for crimal defense, car accident claims or landlord tenant issues, don't hesitate to contact John. If you have a solid claim, he will get you solid results.

The Best
Mr. Mulvey is not your run of the mill attorney. He is thoughtful, patient, honest, fair, and incredibly brilliant. He has helped my family and many of our friends without judgment or ridicule. He truly stands out among his colleagues.

Fraudulent Landlords
Mr. Mulvey is a excellent attorney who understands the law, and tell it how it is to his clients. As i was telling my story he was interrupting me and treating me just as i would be treated if I was on the stand. I was renting an apartment and my landlords refuse to give me back my security deposit. I went and filed my lawsuit without any lawyer advice; due to a lack of money, and once I had my first court date my landlords did not show up to court they sent their attorney. The case was switched to the regular court docket so an attorney could represent them and at that point I was told that I should look into getting an attorney. The first thing I did was walk over to The Legal Aid in my area and the informed me that they could not help me. I was very worried because I knew that I would not have a chance at winning my case without an attorney. I was determined not to give up so I went home and began looking for an attorney that would represent me without having any money up front. After calling numerous attorneys and leaving messages to some, and being told that my case was not good enough by others, I was very discouraged and thought about giving up at one point of time until I received a call from Mr. Mulvey. He told me to meet him at his office where he would talk to me for an hour and see if I had a case. After talking to My. Mulvey for three hours he finally decided to represent me. Mr. Mulvey did not waste anytime he began to work on my case immediately. After about a month I received what I was entitled to with the help of Mr. Mulvey. In addition, not only was Mr. Mulvey great to me, but he was great to my children also, anytime I had to come into the office and bring the children he always had a special treat for them which they enjoyed. I would 100% recommend Mr. Mulvey because he is great at his job, and he was willing to help when everyone else tuned me away.
