Who We Are

Choosing a lawyer to represent you when you sustain an injury can be challenging. Most people — including many of our clients — have never required the expertise and services of a lawyer. Many people are hesitant to consult an attorney. They may be intimidated, or they may not know what a lawyer can do for them, or they may be worried about paying the legal fees.

The attorneys at Joseph T. Mullen, Jr. & Associates are here to expertly guide you through the legal process and recover fair compensation for any wrongdoing you have suffered, more often than not on a contingent fee basis — if we not do recover money for you by verdict or settlement, you do not owe us any money.

We have recovered in excess of $350 million dollars in settlements and verdicts for clients over the past 35 years. Our attorneys have almost 100 years of combined legal experience.
