"An injustice anywhere is an injustice everywhere."
Attorney John Mueller was born and raised near Milwaukee, Wisconsin, John graduated from Purdue University (’91) and Saint Louis University School of Law (’94). His early success in appellate law sparked his career as an appellate attorney. While a full-time law student working part-time for the Federal Public Defender Eastern District of Missouri, John drafted an appellate brief that resulted in the reversal, on sufficiency of the evidence grounds, of a client’s conviction and 10-year federal prison sentence.
Following law school, John accepted a position as a Judicial Law Clerk to the Honorable Thomas M. Welch, Illinois 5th District Appellate Court. John spent 12 years as an Appellate Law Clerk, reading hundreds of briefs, engaging in extensive research on a broad range of legal issues, and drafting numerous dispositions. During his tenure as an Appellate Law Clerk, John not only fine-tuned his already exceptional legal research and writing skills, but most importantly, learned what constitutes a winning brief and what arguments give a client the best chances of success on appeal.
