    I endorse this lawyer's work. I worked with Julie for many years in Georgia's busiest State court. She was the finest DUI prosecutor the office has ever had. She has remarkable negotiating skills, is fully versed in the law and is a skilled researcher and appellate advocate.

    Julie Kert is a fantastic lawyer. As prosecutors in Atlanta, I was co-counsel on hundreds on cases. I had the opportunity to watch her up close and I learned many valuable skills from her. More so than anyone else, she is tenacious in her preparations. She is someone that I greatly admire.
