About Jill L. Mullins
Having worked as a volunteer, paralegal and prosecutor, Jill Mullins brings a wealth of legal experience to McKinley Irvin.
Before joining McKinley Irvin's Seattle family law office, Jill worked as a prosecutor at the Family Support Division of the Benton County Prosecuting Attorney's Office. But it was Jill's own family that inspired her work in family law. Blended and diverse, Jill experienced firsthand the changing image of the modern family.
"Family law is my passion and not just my career because of my personal experiences and those of my family and friends. Every family is different, which means every family law case is different. But regardless of the case, I believe in working with clients to understand their needs and achieve results that work for their families."
It was after witnessing the multiple challenges a friend experienced when she lost her partner that Jill started putting her energy into educating the LGBT community on same-sex family law matters. She convened panels about powers of attorneys, adoption, breaking up, and death and dying. This led to her work with the QLaw Foundation in creating the GLBT Legal Clinic.
Jill also believes that whether it is a traditional family or one with a more modern slant, every family law case requires its own focus and plan.
Jill is the Past-President and current board member of the GLBT Bar Association of Washington Foundation (QLAW Foundation), is on the Safe Schools Coalition Law and Policy Committee and is a member of the Washington State Legislative Bullying Workgroup.
When she is not practicing law or volunteering her time, she can be found skating around Greenlake, enjoying a show or musical, reading for book club, working on her novel or taking dance classes.
