I am the managing partner of Mueller Law, LLC a national law firm, with my office here in Montclair, New Jersey. I specialize in complex litigation matters pending in the courts all over the country. I am a former federal prosecutor and an adjunct law professor of law at Seton Hall Law School.
I was born and raised here in New Jersey. My father was a police officer and my mother a teacher’s aide. My parents instilled in me the importance of public service.
While in Washington, D.C., I worked for a United States Congressman and a Member of Parliament in the British House of Commons. I also served on the staffs of three offices of Independent Counsel with the United States Justice Department: investigating allegations concerning the United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development; investigating allegations concerning the United States Attorney General; and investigating allegations concerning the United States Secretary of Agriculture.
I have had the privilege of representing the First Ward on the Montclair Town Council for the last eight years, where I also served as the Deputy Mayor in 2016 and now again in 2020. I have also been a member of the of the Montclair Board of School Estimate for the last eight years.
Before, and during my council service, I served on numerous town boards, such as the Montclair YMCA, Northern New Jersey Red Cross, Outpost in the Burbs, National Youth Recovery Foundation, the Family Services League and the Town’s Capital Finance Committee. I value the time I have spent serving these varied interests serving our community. I have been very active in the Montclair School District and I volunteer to support the many events and fundraisers held for the schools. I presented Goldilocks v. The Three Bears, a mock trial for elementary school children where they learn firsthand how the court system works as a non-violent means to settle disputes.
I lived in Montclair for twenty-two years. I am proud of the fact that my two children are graduates of the Montclair public school system. I consider myself lucky to live and work in our great town!
