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 since 2021, he's been listed in The Best Lawyers in America in Labor and Employment Litigation.  Kevin primarily represents management, although he occasionally represents executives and employees.  He also serves as a neutral mediator for the Nuclear Regulatory Agency's Whistleblower ADR program.  

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.  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 the former Chairman of the Austin Bar Association’s Labor & Employment Law Section, a member of the Austin Bar Association’s Construction Law and Alternative Dispute Resolution Sections, and a board member of the Austin Chapter of the Federal Bar Association.  Kevin is also a Sustaining Life Fellow of the Texas Bar Foundation, an honorary organization that annually invites only 1/3 of 1% of Texas attorneys to join its ranks.

In his spare time, Kevin runs, lifts weights, reads spy novels, coaches his daughter's basketball team, cultivates his taste for Tex-Mex cuisine, and enjoys outdoor pursuits with his family (often in Angel Fire, New Mexico).  Kevin avidly supports the Eanes Education Foundation, Operation Smile, and other charitable organizations.
