She resides in North Yarmouth with her husband and two daughters. Mueller received her JD at The University of Connecticut School of Law.

The Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings are an objective indicator of a lawyer’s high ethical standards and professional ability, generated from evaluations by other members of the bar and the judiciary in the United States and Canada. The evaluations are based on legal knowledge, analytical capabilities, judgment, communication ability and legal experience.
