As a parent, your number one concern has to be the safety, welfare and happiness of your children. Sometimes, even children with the most attentive and caring parents end up running afoul of the law. Juvenile law doesn’t always involve a simple slap on the wrist, either, especially if a child goes virtually unrepresented during their case. If your child has been charged with any sort of crime, it is essential to consult with a juvenile law attorney as quickly as possible. Doing so can lessen the odds of your child facing more serious penalties – and may even result in reduced charges.

The client was charged with Substantial Battery against his spouse. Attorney Mullen was able, through his knowledge of the court process and how the system actually works, to get the case totally dismissed.
The County could not show Attorney Mullen’s client physically assaulted a fellow inmate during a preliminary hearing. Upon suggestion a continuance would be granted in order to allow the State time to prepare their case, he convinced the court not to allow it thereby ending the prosecution of the alleged felony. Immediately afterwards at the next preliminary hearing scheduled that day, Attorney Mullen established a sexual assault was not committed by showing the elements of the crime were not met. Within thirty minutes, Attorney Mullen had won two preliminary hearings ending two felony cases.
Eau Claire County vs. Citizen Accused of Operating While Intoxicated and Operating with a Prohibited Blood Alcohol Level (BAC) at a .09 Level
Attorney Mullen established, through cross examination of the State’s own expert witness during the jury trial, the defendant’s blood alcohol level was between .05 and .07. Through a chronological “walk-through” of when each alcoholic beverage was consumed, the exact volume of each drink and other important factors necessary for the expert to form a calculated blood alcohol level estimate, Attorney Mullen got into evidence an expert witness opinion showing when the defendant was operating the vehicle, he/she did not have a prohibited blood alcohol level in his/her system. Even though the official blood alcohol results showed a prohibited blood alcohol level, it was established such a level was obtained only AFTER the defendant ceased operating the vehicle.
