M. F. Connell Mullins, Jr.
Connell Mullins represents a wide range of clients in business disputes. He has acquired substantial bench and jury trial experience in federal and state courts, as both lead and local counsel, for plaintiffs and defendants in a broad array of contested matters, including financial services litigation, products liability and personal injury cases, regulatory proceedings before Virginia's State Corporation Commission (SCC), contract and business tort cases, employment litigation, intellectual property litigation, and a variety of other business disputes.
Prior to joining the firm, Connell served as a law clerk to U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson and to M. Langhorne Keith of the Fairfax County Circuit Court. This unique experience of having clerked in both the Eastern District of Virginia (aka the "Rocket Docket") and in one of the busiest trial courts in the Commonwealth of Virginia enables him to evaluate the needs and concerns of his clients with efficiency, to advise his clients on pre-litigation strategy considerations, and to provide practical and effective representation from the beginning of a case all the way through discovery, development of fact and expert witnesses, motions practice, trial, and post-trial motions practice.
