Meet Peter Mullin of The Law Office of Peter J Mullin


Attorney Peter J. Mullin has his Juris Doctor from The Massachusetts School of Law. His law practice is located in Lowell, Ma. but for your comfort and convenience he will meet with you in your home or office. 

Atty Mullin concentrates his practice on Estate Planning and Elder Law. While most people know that they should take steps to plan for what happens to their assets and belongings after they die, an alarming number of U.S. adults don't even have a will. People may avoid drafting a will and the estate planning process in general for a variety of reasons. Fears related to their own mortality, simple procrastination and feeling overwhelmed are all reasons why people avoid starting an estate plan. Atty Mullin will put your mind at ease and work with you to create the best plan possible for you and your heirs 

What is an Estate Plan? Will I benefit from an estate plan? How does an estate plan work? Do I need a will and a trust?  Why? These are all questions Atty Mullin is waiting to answer for you. 

Contact Attorney Peter Mullin at Phone: (978) 441-9200 | Email:

Luciana Calvin Photography, Lowell MA will join with PPA Charities to promote “Celebration of Smiles Day.”

On April 22 local photographer Luciana Calvin Photography will join with PPA Charities (the philanthropic arm of Professional Photographers of America) to promote “Celebration of Smiles Day.” 

This national fundraising effort will benefit Operation Smile, which treats children around the world who suffer with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities.

On that day, participating photographers will offer the gift of an individual portrait session and a desksize portrait in exchange for a $24 donation to Operation Smile. This donation represents one tenth of $240, the amount needed to help fund a single surgery. 

According to Michigan photographer, Lori Craft, President of Professional Photographers of America (PPA), “Celebration of Smiles Day” is the perfect opportunity to have your portrait made or that of a loved one, because in doing so you are making it possible to truly change the lives of children who would otherwise face a lifetime of pain and rejection.”

Founded in 1982, Operation Smile is a worldwide children’s medical charity dedicated to helping children and young adults born with facial deformities. In as little as 45 minutes, one cleft lip surgery can change a child’s life forever. Every three minutes a child somewhere in the world is born with a facial deformity. One in ten will not survive to see their first birthday. Those who do survive often live in isolation and pain. Each year, more than 100,000 children are born with a facial deformity in Operation Smile’s 26 partner countries. Tens of thousands remain untreated. “Recording smiles is what photographers do,” says Vassar, Michigan, photographer Tina Timmons, who serves as president of the PPA Charities Board of Trustees, and who was instrumental in developing the Celebration of Smiles promotion. “It’s hard to imagine a more appropriate charity for our members to support. And when parents participate in this event, it’s a wonderful way to teach children the value of reaching out to others. Even small children can understand the importance of Operation Smile’s work, and they are eager to help these needy children.”

Learn more about Homeopath

Hello, my name is Susan Keefe, CCH. I am a professional Homeopath and a Shamanic Practitioner. I went through extensive training for four years, including premed classes and a six-hour certification exam. I am very proud to be #778 as a professional Homeopath in this country. Although, it is not mandatory to be certified to practice; for me it was the correct thing to do. I continue to study to stay current in new practices in Homeopathic care and in allopathic medicine.

Homeopathy is an alternative health modality that has been in use for over 200 years. It is used worldwide. In this country it is becoming more understood and as the understanding grows, so does the use of it. Homeopathy is based on the idea of Like cures Like. A good example would be giving hyperactive kids coffee in the 70’s to give their bodies a chance to relax. Coffea Cruda, as coffee is known as a remedy today, has an excellent effect of helping those who cannot sleep or relax.

There are many reasons to come to my office. It may be that you do not want to use what your doctor has suggested; the idea of painkillers or psych medicines may not be the direction of cure that you are looking for. There are also many clients who come in that have had all the tests and “nothing” is found. Now what? As a Homeopath, I work with your symptoms; that is what I base the choice of your remedy on. Of course, I do the research to understand what is or could be the problem. There are many clients that I work with their doctors to treat the client together. Lately there has been an increase of people who are opting out of paying for expensive Health Insurance with high deductibles. Working homeopathically and treating all of the physical, mental and emotional symptoms together, the end result brings you back to your whole best health. Not specialist by specialist.


I work with all ages from infants to 93 years old. There is the anxiety that causes stomach aches. The grief that causes headaches and backaches. The stress that causes migraines. As a homeopath, I completely understand the connection. Menopause, Toothaches, Colic, ED, Surgical support, Migraines, Eczema the list is endless. My office is in Georgetown, Mass at 28 West Main Street. is the website. Office phone is 978-207-1686.
