Michael E. Mullis, managing partner at Kelley and Mullis Wealth Management in Vestavia Hills, has won a number of awards during his career. He was in the Securities America Pinnacle Club in 2014 and was among Alabama's top 50 financial advisers in 2015.
Mullis grew up in a family that was used to dealing with large financial numbers. From his bio at the K and M Web site:
Michael Mullis is the Managing Partner and Wealth Manager at Kelley and Mullis Wealth Management. Directly after college graduation, Michael followed his father’s footsteps beginning his career in accounting. There is not a time that Michael has not had a deep interest in the financial industry. After two years in public accounting with Arthur Andersen, Michael followed his dream, making the decision to switch careers satisfying his career goals of having a challenging job that he loves, while being able to positively affect peoples’ lives.
Public records indicate Mullis' personal life is not quite as tidy as his professional life appears. He was married to Norma Kay Mullis, and in 2010, they bought a home at 6095 Brookhill Circle, which has an estimated sales price of $716,388.

The Web site ratemyprofessors.com shows that Norma Kay Mullis taught Spanish at Samford and received mostly "awesome" scores from her students.
It's not clear if Michael Mullis is an "awesome" financial adviser, but he seems to have carved out a solid niche in the field. From his bio:
Drawing on the expertise of those he has worked with as a young advisor, Michael incorporates their ideas and philosophies with his experience as a CPA developing a business approach that is focused on listening, understanding and implementing, while using a conservative approach to investing. He knows that there are no two clients that are exactly the same, so always listening to a clients concerns, understanding what their financial goals are and then developing and implementing a plan that allows clients to meet their goals. Michael’s greatest satisfaction comes from the personal relationships that develop through this approach to investment and retirement planning. In 2010, Michael had the honor of being named Managing Partner, transitioning the firm to Kelley and Mullis Wealth Management, honoring Oley Kelley, the man that believed in him from the beginning.
