Mary E. Mullin, Attorney at Law

The death of a loved one can be so traumatic that you never really fully recover. My Dad died when I was three. You might say that my experience with probate and decedent’s estates started there.

He was only 33 when we lost him, and unfortunately, he had made few provisions for his family. Because my father had no formal plan, his estate was greatly reduced by court costs.

When I meet with clients, my life experience in this matter, combined with a law practice of nearly a quarter of a century, enables me to offer them personalized service that meets their unique needs. (I have also taught at the university and college level and am quite familiar with the nuances of probate law that affect your bottom line.)

Clients want to see the value of the legal work for which they are paying – to clearly understand the documents they are signing. I believe clients can make better choices once they know the pros and cons – and consequences – of the legal decisions confronting them.

I especially enjoy breaking down walls of confusion and clearing up mysteries about the law. The law, after all, is designed to serve the interests of the people. But that can only happen if they understand their legal rights and responsibilities.

I became a member of the local community almost 30 years ago, when I moved to California after graduate school. Every time I use my skills and expertise to benefit my neighbors, fellow church members and those who live and work in our surrounding communities, I feel a deep sense of joy and gratitude. Probate law may not be a topic of everyday conversation, but its proper application can make a big difference when the need of it arises.

I received my Bachelor's degree and my Master's degree from the University of Maryland. After teaching for several semesters at local colleges, I obtained my Juris Doctor from Western State University College of Law in Fullerton, and was sworn in to the California Bar in 1992.

The doors of my practice opened in Santa Fe Springs, California in 1993. Although I handled a variety of legal matters during my first 10 years of practice -- Family Law, Business Law, Bankruptcy, Civil Litigation, Collections, Landlord-Tenant Law and more – I’ve been fortunate enough since then to focus on Probate (Decedent's Estates, Conservatorships and Guardianships), Trusts and Trust Administration, and Estate Planning.

In addition to my experience as an attorney, I bring my experience as a Paralegal Educator to my practice as well, and have some of best Paralegals around working for me.

To sum up, my goal is to help you to understand your Probate, Trust and Estate Planning options so you can make the best choices for your financial future. I want you to be so satisfied with my work that you’ll come back and see me whenever you have other matters to contend with. In March of 2018, I’ll be celebrating my 25th anniversary in this wonderfully gratifying work. My practice has flourished because clients refer their friends and family to me to help with their Probate, Trust or Estate Planning issues, and for that, I offer a heartfelt thank you.

According to Diana, the best things about working as a paralegal for Mary E. Mullin, Attorney at Law are being able to help people in their time of grieving, being able to explain to clients the purpose of each estate planning document, and being able to help people to protect their assets for their love ones when it's time to leave this world.
