In this blog, we are showcasing Kelsey Mulholland, Esq., who is counsel to our firm. Kelsey has been designated as a Certified Matrimonial Law Attorney by the New Jersey Supreme Court, an honor bestowed to only 2% of statewide attorneys. He’s been repeatedly selected as a Rising Star in New Jersey by Super Lawyers Magazine. In 2015, he was named as one of the “10 Best Family Law Attorneys for the State of New Jersey” by the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys. He is both a masterful trial lawyer and a skilled, effective mediator.
Want to know what everyone in our office thinks about him? Check it out:
Laura Ruvolo Lipp (Partner): "Kelsey has the perfect combination of qualities for a family law attorney. He is a skilled and experienced litigator, yet he can work with his adversaries and mediation clients to settle even the most difficult and contentious cases. Kelsey has a calming effect on not only (understandably) stressed clients but on his co-workers and colleagues…And no one can change a water cooler faster than he can. No one. I feel incredibly fortunate to have Kelsey on our team and I look forward to working with him for years to come."
Jessica Wall (Legal Assistant): "Kelsey goes above and beyond to make sure that the client’s voice is heard. He is also the 'muscles' of the office."
Kristin Marchaterre (Legal Assistant): "Kelsey treats all clients with respect and understands their individual needs as well as those of their family. He thinks about their immediate AND future needs. He is extremely dedicated and continues his legal education to give his clients the best possible representation. He is fully invested in what he does. He is also very well-respected among the legal community. . . . At all times, he is a snappy dresser too! Plus, he really really loves his office plant."
Cindy Ball Wilson (Attorney): "Kelsey always provides a thorough legal analysis. He assesses all arguments and then creates a great strategy going forward. He is very thoughtful in his advice. . . . and he dresses very cool."
Michelle Levin (Attorney): "Kelsey is a rare find in family law. He knows the facts of your case inside and out. He can explain the law in a way that makes sense to his clients. Most importantly, he cares about what is best for his clients and their families."
Melissa Ruvolo (Partner): "It’s not WWJD, it’s WWKD. Whenever I am confused about the right course to take in a case, I think 'what would Kelsey do,' and I walk into his office. He has all the answers. He is even-tempered and reasonable, which is why he is so well-liked among attorneys and judges. It also makes him a successful mediator. He has a sensible, calming effect on everyone around him. Kelsey and I worked together early on in our careers, but we eventually moved on to work at different law firms. I jumped at the opportunity to have him as part of our team. He is the epitome of not only the perfect lawyer, but a great friend. Amazingly, I don’t think he’s ever worn the same tie more than once. He has hair that would make any man (or woman) green with envy."
So, take it from us. You want Kelsey on your side, whether it’s as your lawyer or as a mediator. After all, we spend almost every day with him, so we would know best.
