O’Mullan Gets Resolution from Freeholders

O’Mullan served for nearly 30 years as an assistant and special counsel appointed by the county freeholders. He was then named Acting County Counsel in 2008 and was appointed as the county’s permanent chief legal advisor in 2009.

He was honored with a special resolution by the freeholders on June 24, in the presence of his wife, Helen, and two sons, Michael and Matthew.
“Dan O’Mullan served with great dedication, intelligence and integrity, and with the best interests of Morris County in mind,’’ said the resolution read by Freeholder Director Kathy DeFillippo.

Before working for Morris County, O’Mullan was an attorney for the Federal Trade Commission, a Special Deputy Attorney General, and an Assistant Hudson County Prosecutor. The Fordham University Law School graduate was appointed an assistant Morris County Counsel in 1980. 

O’Mullan, who also has long been a partner in the Cedar Knolls-based O’Mullan and Brady law firm, will be replaced as county by attorney John Napolitano, of Randolph, who will take the oath of office today.
