prenuptual agreementDefinition: Prenuptial Agreements
A prenuptial agreement is a written contract created by two people planning to be married. The agreement typically lists all of the property each person owns, as well as their debts, and it specifies what each person’s property rights will be after they tie the knot. Prenuptial agreements often specify how property will be divided — and whether spousal support (alimony) will be paid — in the event of a divorce.

Topic Expanded: Prenuptial Agreements
In today’s gender equality environment and people sometimes putting their careers before their married life, it is not that uncommon for one or both spouses to come in to a marriage with considerable assets. With that in mind, it is not unreasonable for one or both spouses to guard most if not all their assets if the marriage doesn’t work.

Recommendation: Prenuptial Agreements
Hiring an attorney that can appropriately draft a document to guard their client’s pre-marital assets from becoming marital property is a must, even  if the marriage lasts “til death do they part.”  Peace of mind helps the marriage. period.

So what will the attorneys at Mullen, Schlough & Associates do for me?

Whether you have a criminal case, drunk driving or some type of family law case like a divorce or custody matter, our attorneys have been handling these type and only these type cases for the better part of 14 years.  With that kind of experience comes “strategies and techniques” that we’ve found either work, work well or don’t work at all.

For example:

Telling the district attorney we’re going to take the case to a jury trial right from the start might get you a better offer from the start….and it might not.

Telling the district attorney we’re going to take your case to trial after we win an important motion or do some other “case altering event” will probably get you a better offer.

Telling the district attorney we’re going to take your case to a trial after receiving some damaging evidence motion hearing or losing an Important motion hearing WILL NOT get you a better offer.

OR

Telling the judge you’ve moved out with your kids one night without letting you wife know, moved in with your girlfriend and told your kids to start calling her Mom right in the middle of the school year while yanking your kids out of their school and enrolling them in a new school 200 miles away WILL NOT win a lot of bonus points with the vast majority of judges.

Reading these examples without living them seem pretty straight forward.  However, you as our clients will be living in the situation.  Most if not all our clients do what they do for a reason.

For example, I had a client that was enjoying a football game and the multitude of beer that went along with it.  During the 3rd quarter, he received a phone call, got in his car, drove 150 miles and got a DUI.  Seems straight forward and somewhat stupid right?  What if I told you his daughter was in a terrible car accident and on life support in the emergency room?  You probably won’t read about that in the drunk driving police report.

Though the district attorney didn’t have a lot of sympathy, a jury sure did.

THE POINT:  KNOWING WHAT TO DO WITH THE FACTS OF THE CASE WILL MAKE THE DIFFERENCE EVERY TIME.

What can you guys do for me that I can’t do myself?

We know what to do with the facts of your case.  Did you know that the police officer has to have his emergency lights off when he gives you the HGN {or also known as the “stare at the pen”) according to the National Highway Safety Manual?  If the cop didn’t, we can file a motion to have the field sobriety test thrown out. If the field sobriety test is thrown out, the entire case may be dismissed as well (whether you were drunk or not).

“Technicalities” like these are why we get cases dismissed before jury trials.  The district attorney is not going to help you find them.  The district attorney IS NOT going to point out what a poor job the cops did unless he has to.

Why is our firm better than the other ones?

Most trial attorneys know or have some idea what do with the facts of a case and “technicalities” as I’ve previously mentioned.  Some attorneys are, of course, better than others.

But why us?

  • We don’t believe in paralegals and staff. Therefore, when you call your attorney, you will speak directly to your attorney.
  • When a motion is filed, your attorney researched and filed it. Your attorney is going to argue it so they should know it inside and out.  That’s what you are paying for.
  • When your ex or soon to be ex does something, your attorney needs to know, not some secretary. The secretary is not going to argue the case in court, the attorney is.
  • If you have any billing or legal service statement issues, Attorney Mark Mullen, President and founding member of the firm answers the phone….always. He does the books, issues the checks and makes the financial calls on your case. If you call the main number, it will be him you talk to, period.
  • We encourage payment plans. Most of our clients are not rich and therefore cannot put down the entire amount of the retainer at the time of hiring.

What kind of money am I going to have upfront to hire you guys?

If you have a job or a credit card, we ask for half of the quoted retainer.   When you’re serious and ready to proceed with your case, putting SOME money down lets us know you’re serious.  When your serious and ready to go, so we.
