About Me

I attended Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad School of Law.  While in law school, I was the executive editor of the Law Review and a member of the moot court and I graduated magna cum laude in 2004.  Since my second year in law school, I have practiced bankruptcy law and commercial litigation.

  • Scott D. Smiley

    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.
