Attorney Profile

Attorney Christopher R. Musulin is the founder and principal of the Musulin Law Firm, LLC, located in Mount Holly, New Jersey. Serving clients throughout South Jersey (Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Mercer Counties), Mr. Musulin focuses his practice exclusively on family law and divorce, and he finds great reward in helping his clients through some of the most difficult and emotional legal challenges they will ever face.  He is efficient in his practice of law and always prepared for his clients who have such serious legal matters.

Accredited as a professional mediator by the New Jersey Association of Professional Mediators, certified as an arbitrator by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, as well as being an active Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, Mr. Musulin strives to help his clients resolve their conflicts and reach settlement agreements that meet their needs and best interests without the need for expensive and time-consuming litigation. However, he has a sophisticated skillset matched with a depth of experience whenever there is the need to enter a courtroom on his client's behalf and is capable of handling any adversary.

Mr. Musulin began his legal career in 1988 after obtaining his Juris Doctor from Rutgers Law School in Camden and his license to practice from the Supreme Court of New Jersey.  Also in 1988, the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey admitted him to practice, and he is admitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court as well as before the District of Columbia. In 1995, he completed the intensive training seminar in divorce mediation at Seton Hall University Institute of Dispute Resolution and recently, renewed his negotiation skills, in 2017, when he participated in the Harvard University Negotiation Seminar.

Well-versed in all aspects of family law, Mr. Musulin has published numerous articles in the New Jersey Family Lawyer, a scholarly publication, and has delivered CLE lectures on a variety of topics involving divorce, military divorce, alimony, property division, child custody, mediation, and many other related subjects.  He is also heavily involved with his legal community, having served in a number of leadership roles for various family law committees and sections of the New Jersey State Bar Association, the Burlington County Bar Association (he is currently co-chair) and the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, where he also was elected a fellow in 2006.

Committed to his local community as well, Mr. Musulin has volunteered for several local, regional and national charities and nonprofits, and in 1993, he received the Robert W. Criscuolo Award from the Burlington County Bar Association in recognition for his contributions. In addition, South Jersey Magazine named him an awesome attorney from 2008-2018, and NJBIZ Magazine named him a top mediator.  Christopher Musulin was recognized by New Jersey Super Lawyers in 2018 and 2019 and was awarded the Silver Client Champion Award through Martindale-Hubbell, a recognition based on client reviews that is provided to fewer than 1 percent of attorneys.

Christopher Musulin is what one would term a "dynamic lawyer" who has honed his skillset and knowledge of matrimonial and family law for over 30 years.  He became a lawyer because he wants to help people.  He is here to help you through any kind of matrimonial and family law matter.
