Neil M. Mullins
Neil M. Mullins was born in Hudson, New York on December 31, 1962. He graduated with honors from Hudson High School in 1981; from SUNY College at Buffalo, cum laude in 1985; and obtained his Juris Doctorate from the University Oklahoma College of Law in 1988. While in Oklahoma Neil became an avid Sooner fan to add to his fanatic following of the Boston Red Sox. His law office Red Sox collection of signed and authentic Red Sox memorabilia is admired by all but Yankee fans, and even they appreciate the collection.
During law school, Neil earned the distinct privilege under the Oklahoma State Bar Student Practice Rule to serve as student law clerk to the Honorable Chief Justice John B. Doolin of Oklahoma Supreme Court during both his 2nd and 3rd years and during the summers.
Neil was admitted to the Nevada Bar and to practice before all Courts in the U.S. Ninth Judicial District in 1988. Neil is a Nevada Board Certified Family Law Specialist. He is also a Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. Neil is AV rated (pre-eminent distinction) by Martindale-Hubbell; and was named a Super Lawyer in 2016. Neil is a member of Clark County Bar Association; the Nevada State Bar-Litigation and Family Law Sections, and the Trial Lawyers Association of America.
From 1988 to 1990, Neil tried his first 4 jury trials and several bench trials while an associate at Rawlings, Olson and Cannon where he practiced insurance defense, and was the only family law practitioner of the 30 attorneys. In January 1991, Neil founded Mullins Law Firm where he practiced family law, personal injury, business and real estate litigation until 2000, when his practice focused nearly exclusively on family law. Neil has extensive trial and family law experience. Neil has tried more than 12 civil jury trials, more than 100 bench trials; and he has represented more than 2500 family law clients over the past several decades. He has served as a private arbitrator and mediator to assist with case resolution for the courts in the areas of personal injury and family law litigation. Neil’s former law partner, and wife, Michelle D. Mullins still practices with Mullins Law Firm.
In August 2014 Neil was privileged to join his distinguished colleague and friend, Ed Kainen, as a partner, at Kainen Law Group, an AV rated firm. Neil is proud to complement a group of talented and highly ethical family and divorce lawyers that have achieved distinction and excellence within the Nevada Bar. Thanks to great clients, great colleagues and their referrals, and a terrific and thriving business and cultural environment to complement the dynamics of a divorce practice in Las Vegas, the mecca of matrimonial law, Neil is proud to continue to serve the community and the family bar.
