Biography

Kevin S. Mullen is board certified in labor and employment law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. He has been named a Texas Super Lawyer in Employment and Labor Law by Thomson Reuters every year since 2016 and he is listed in the 2021 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America in the category Labor and Employment Litigation.

Kevin grew up in San Antonio, Texas, attended the University of Texas at Dallas (on a full academic scholarship), and, after spending a year abroad (in Montana), obtained his law degree from Texas Wesleyan University School of Law (now Texas A&M) in Fort Worth, Texas.

Before deciding to open his own law firm in 2017, Kevin spent eight years as an equity shareholder in the world's largest labor and employment law firm representing management (Littler Mendelson), and he co-founded its Austin, Texas office. Before that, he worked in Dallas as an associate in a national insurance defense firm, handling employment, contract, tort, and other litigation matters. As a newly licensed attorney, Kevin was offered a position in the Texas Attorney General's Honors Program, Class of 2001. In that role, he defended the constitutionality of state programs and statutes and represented state agencies and employees in employment discrimination, constitutional law, negligence, and intentional tort cases.

Kevin is a board member of the Austin Bar Association's Labor & Employment Law Section and a member of the Austin Bar Association's Alternative Dispute Resolution Section and the Austin Chapter of the Federal Bar Association.

In his spare time, Kevin runs, lifts weights, reads spy novels, coaches basketball (his elementary-age daughter's team dominates the league!), cultivates his taste for Tex-Mex cuisine, and enjoys outdoor pursuits with his family (the preferred venue is Angel Fire, New Mexico). Kevin is married to Angela, and they live in the Westlake area of Austin, with their two children, Jackson, future NBA star and civil engineer, and Haley, future Olympic gymnast and animal lover.

The Mullen Firm PLLC is a proud supporter of Eanes Education Foundation, Bridge Point Elementary School, Operation Smile, and the Central Texas Food Bank.
