Payment Plans:

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 you are serious and ready to go, so are we.

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.

How does it work? :

  • Pay 1/2 of the total retainer today either buy check, money order or credit card.
  • Provide a valid credit card or debit card and estimate a comfortable monthly payment. The entire remaining balance needs to be paid within 12 months.

The Catch:

  • Once your credit card or debit card fails in transacting a monthly payment, you have 15 days from the failure to contact our office to work out an alternative payment.
  • If Mullen, Schlough & Associates SC and/or any branch of the firm is not contacted by phone, text, email or mail, your attorney may withdraw from your case at his or her discretion.

OWI Case
Attorney - Mark Mullen
“I just wanted to say thank you for giving me a 2nd chance in life. I was able to overcome the accident, and because of the plea deal that I received, I was able to start over and get my life back. At first, it was hard getting a job, but (some company) gave me an opportunity as an agent, and I’m making the most of it. I hope that the other clients that you serve can be helped as much as you helped me. Thanks Again.”
