It is with heavy hearts that we mark the passing of Paula Leonard. Paula recently retired after over thirty years with Mulhern and Scott. She will be dearly missed by all of us. Visiting hours will be held at the Farrell Funeral Home at 684 State Street in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, on Thursday, September 8th, 2022, from 5:00pm to 8:00pm.
Mulhern & Scott’s newest attorney, James Mulhern, was recently featured in the New Hampshire Bar Association’s newsletter in an article written by Kathie Ragsdale.
The article features James’ many accomplishments, from graduating from the Schulich School of Music at McGill University in Montreal, to earning a master’s degree in Accounting and Finance from the London School of Economics and receiving his law degree magna cum laude from Harvard Law School, to authoring 20+ crossword puzzles in the New York Times. “What makes him such a unique talent is his preternatural intuition,” he [Ashton Anderson] says of his friend [Mulhern]. “He has an incredible ability to consider a complicated thing, divine its essence, and render a quick and accurate judgment on it. This intellectual compass almost always guides him in the right direction, but he will also complement his instincts with deep analysis to ensure the quality of his work.”

After thirty- one years with the firm, Paula retired this past June from her role as paralegal.
Paula joined Mulhern & Scott in 1990 as a member of our estate planning team. For over 30 years she specialized in drafting and amending clients’ estate planning documents and assisted clients in re-titling their assets in the name of their Revocable Trusts and preparing sophisticated beneficiary designations for client’s life insurance, retirement accounts, and annuities.
Paula was a valuable member of the Mulhern & Scott team for many years. Though it was a bittersweet transition, we wish her all the best in the next chapter of her life.
