Professional
Kipp is the best! He is professional, courteous, clear and concise. Typically the litigation process is overwhelming but Kipp made it seamless and easy. I am more than satisfied with his work and with the outcome of my case.

Great decision to have Kipp represent me
Working with Kipp was a good experience. This was one of the most difficult times of my life. I felt heard, supported, and represented. Kipp made sure to communicate with me every step of the way, making sure to answer any questions I had and clarify anything I didn’t understand.

Exceeded my expectations
Kipp exceeded my expectations. He was thorough, communicative, and most importantly, I felt seen and understood. I had a lot of stress around my case, and Kipp was always there to walk me through the process and answer all my questions. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome of my case and working with Kipp.

Wonderful and comforting consultation
I spoke to a handle of lawyers, and not many of them were as empathetic and as genuine as Kipp. I was unable to hire him for my particular case unfortunately, but provided great insight into things I never thought of. Needing to use a lawyer is a really scary time, and he does a great job in making you feel like everything will be okay. He's very knowledgeable. You can really appreciate his concern and authenticity to help. I would definitely recommend him to others.

Kipp is an impressive attorney: as someone who has worked in the legal field myself, I definitely see him as a standout professional. He is extremely responsive, professional, and clearly has strong expertise in employment law. Not only did he take the time to thoroughly understand the potential case and my questions, but was very perceptive in quickly understanding the issues and offering potential solutions. He made himself available to speak when there was an urgent matter requiring an immediate response on my part, and that meant a lot. I would highly recommend Kipp- he has the best interests of his clients at heart, and certainly has the expertise to follow through. Thank you, Kipp!

A caring man and BOSS attorney!
In getting to know him, I have learned that Kipp champions his vision of a better world, by challenging inequality with a smile. his demeanor is cool and collected, yet his heart is full with compassion and fight. It was his sincerity and composed approach that contributed to making one of the world's most powerful music companies in the world to address the devastating effects sexual harassment can have on both women and men. He is a great listener and he I felt like he really understood me. Kipp is highly intelligent on both an intellectual level and emotional level, and I found him to be an ideal confidant through to the end. As a current associate of one of Los Angeles' most revered female attorneys, Mika Hilaire, I have a feeling he is going to continue to achieve great things on his journey. Communicative, knowledgeable, earnest, and brave...Kipp had my back and we succeeded. I highly recommend him. Thank you so much.

Will fight for you and get you a great resolution!
I hired Mr. Mueller in August 2017 because I was not paid what I was owed by my previous employer and I was also being harassed by him. Mr. Mueller stood up for me against a very aggressive, harassing and unprofessional employer. He stepped in and resolved my dispute and got me the resolution I was looking for. Dealing with my past employer was very stressful for me. He took all that on and I am so grateful to him for fighting for me and taking the burden off my shoulders. If you need a great professional lawyer who will fight for you, Mr. Mueller is the way to go. Thanks again!

Excellent and Efficient Employment Lawyer
Mr. Mueller helped me through out my unemployment process from the time I was laid off until I received a separation agreement and severance. He was always prompt and reliable. He continuously made me aware of all of my options and what to expect each step of the way. He was also always two steps ahead making sure I was prepared for what would happen next in my legal process. In short, he looked out for me and my best interest as if he was handling the case of a friend or family member. Through his spot on work, he helped make a very stressful time less taxing. His services were invaluable.
