Get to Know Attorney Jim Mullen

Jim Mullen is one of those people who’s genuinely driven by a desire to make a difference for those who need it most. After earning his finance degree from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Jim pursued a role in the corporate world, working as a treasury analyst in corporate foreign exchange, where he achieved notable success. But here’s the thing about Jim – even with all that success, he felt something was missing. There was this nagging urge to help people directly.

So, what does he do? He makes a bold move. Motivated by a strong desire to have a more direct impact on people’s lives, Jim decides to switch gears entirely and jumps into nursing. He successfully completed his nursing education, finishing in the top 20% of his class. Next thing, Jim’s on the frontline, working in some of the most intense settings you can imagine – critical care trauma. Places like Grady Memorial in Atlanta, a hospital that sees it all, and then as a charge nurse at Methodist Charlton in South Dallas.

Through all this, Jim saw up close the ripple effects of trauma. It’s not just the person who’s hurt; their whole family feels it. That insight pushed him even further. He decided to arm himself with a law degree from UNT Dallas College of Law, where, unsurprisingly, he racked up honors and awards. It’s like whatever Jim tackles, he does it full-on.

When he’s not fighting the good fight, Jim’s all about family time with his wife, Gina, and their two amazing daughters. And for a bit of fun? Jim tries to hit the golf course, though he’ll be the first to tell you he’s not setting any records. Plus, he’s a massive football fan, always ready to cheer on his favorite team.

In short, Jim’s the real deal – finance pro turned life-saving nurse turned legal advocate but always with that underlying mission of helping others. Whether it’s in a hospital room, a courtroom, or just being a dad, Jim is making an impact.

Jim is an attorney in our Personal Injury Practice Group. He has been with Chris Lewis + Associates since 2022.
