    I am a local attorney and have known Julie for over 10 years. I just referred yet another client to her and thought I would take a second to explain why. Julie has impressed me since the first time I saw her perform in law school. Over the years I have learned that she is more than just a great attorney; she is a consummate professional and heck of a nice person. Because she focuses in bankruptcy, I hope I never need her personally, but she would be the one I would call. You owe it to yourself to sit down with her before you hire anyone else.
