About Michael D. McMullen


“Knowing the law is important, but it just as important to get to know the client.”

Michael Dennis McMullen established this firm in 1998 and since then has helped hundreds of clients through criminal charges. It is what he always wanted to do.

Before that, he gained valuable experience as a prosecutor.

He has handled cases in virtually every county in the State of South Carolina, knows on a personal level almost every Solicitor, and a great many of the Judges in the State. He has developed relationships and a reputation for honesty and straightforwardness with many of those who work in law enforcement. This helps him give good advice and get good results.

Reasons To Hire Michael D. MCMullen

The McMullen Law Firm handles almost exclusively criminal defense cases.

Criminal Defense Law is not for part-timers. It is a complex area of the law that–to do it well–demands a lawyer’s full attention. Laws change or are amended. Court decisions change the law. An effective Criminal Defense Lawyer must keep up with these changes.

No lawyer can guarantee a result. To do so is unethical. What Michael does guarantee is zealous representation, putting the client first, and working to obtain the best possible outcome.

Further, Michael will always keep his clients informed of any developments in the case. He prefers telephone or in-person contact to e-mails and text messages.

Michael thinks outside the box.

When meeting a new client, he first listens. He asks questions. He gets to know them and the facts of their case.

He cares.

Michael never judges or criticizes those who come to him for help.

Michael’s Life Experiences Set Him Apart

He has worked since he was 14 years old in all sorts of jobs. He has been a busboy, dishwasher, waiter, and cook. He worked taking looms apart in the summer heat in Greenville, SC. He has worked with customers as a clerk in a hardware store. In college and in law school, he worked as a bartender.

Between college and law school, Michael investigated complaints of employment discrimination, working for James Clyburn, who is now the third ranking member of congress.

Since becoming a lawyer, he has worked as an administrative hearing officer. He has served as a municipal court judge, conducting jury trials and bench trials, accepting pleas, hearing and deciding contested cases.

When you hire the McMullen Law Firm, you will always deal directly with Michael. He answers his own phone. There is never a filter between him and his client. When you have to be in court, Michael will be in court with you. He will be with you every step of the way.

Michael follows the Golden Rule. He handles his clients’ cases the way he would want an attorney to handle his.
