Originally from Weymouth, Digby County, Greg Mullen attended Dalhousie University for both his undergraduate degree and law school.
He was called to the bar in 2002 and joined Burchell MacDougall’s Truro office.
“I chose Burchell MacDougall because it had a good reputation and a good atmosphere,” Greg explains, “And because Truro is a great place to raise a family.”
Greg’s practice focuses on corporate commercial law, tax law, and wills and estates.
“My general interest has always been in corporate commercial law, but everything relates to each other,” he says, “My experience gives me the advantage of understanding my clients’ needs, and the ability to relay to them their options and alternatives.”
Much of Greg’s free time is spent managing his three boys, aged 8, 10 and 12, and transporting them to hockey, soccer and golf practices. In the summer, he likes to play golf himself, and, in the winter, enjoys time at the ski hill with his family.
