Molly Jo Mullen was raised overseas and in southern Oregon, where her family has lived for generations. The daughter of a visual artist and a history professor, she learned to value the benefits of a free, open and democratic society while growing up in Africa. This early recognition of the importance of free speech and the rule of law led her to the University of Oregon, where she met her husband in Russian class. She then continued on to law school in San Francisco. Molly Jo is an active participant in local issues and spends much of her time championing the development of ethical, responsive and caring young attorneys who will live up to the high standards of the profession. She is simultaneously hoping to impart these same values to her two daughters, with varying degrees of success. Molly Jo finds it an honor and a privilege to represent individuals and their businesses through difficult legal struggles and life events. She hopes to follow in the footsteps of her grandparents by joining the Peace Corps at the age of 65 and leaving Bodyfelt Mount LLP a thriving, dynamic firm full of diverse and purposeful attorneys.
