Milwaukee criminal defense attorney Nicole A. Muller has recently joined Birdsall Obear & Associates LLC as an associate attorney. Not only is Attorney Muller a graduate of Catholic University in Washington D.C. where she studied Political Science and Studio Art, but before going to law school also graduated from Columbia University in New York City. After graduating from Columbia, Attorney Muller realized that this country’s criminal justice was severely broken and the world needed more advocates for criminal defendants across the nation. This passion to bring about positive change and to restore justice in a broken system is what brought Attorney Muller to the great state of Wisconsin and Marquette University Law School.

Attorney Muller graduated from Marquette University Law School where she acted as both the Wisconsin State Bar Criminal Law Section Liaison and the president of the Student Animal Legal Defense Fund.  Additionally, during her time at Marquette, Attorney Muller actively worked with the Racine County Public Defender’s office to create a sentencing manual that attempted to reduce racial prejudice from detrimentally impacting a defendant’s sentence. Attorney Muller also worked on issues surrounding the disproportional impact cash bail programs have on Milwaukee’s and Wisconsin’s  urban poor; racial discrepancies in the courtroom and how jury pooling practices ultimately reduce a minority defendant from having a jury that represents a fair cross section of his or her community; and many other issues plaguing criminal defendants in Wisconsin.

Although Attorney Muller is originally from New York, her give-it-all attitude translates well in Wisconsin courtrooms. Attorney Muller decided to practice law in Wisconsin and not return to New York as she believed that there were serious issues that needed to be addressed within the criminal “justice” system of Milwaukee and the greater Wisconsin area. This passion and eternal fire that feeds her drive pushes her to be a strong and zealous advocate for all of her clients.

    • Nicole is the best in my eyes. She talks to you like a normal person and feels like u have known her for years. I had a serious case that could of ruined my life and get lots of prison time. She got the case dismissed by her hard work and knowledge.  I would advise anyone to hire her. The money and time is way worth it.
