  • Graham Lee Hartung

    I asked Julia to help with a case where my client was in danger of losing his business. The importance of having an attorney who sees "the big picture" cannot be overstated. That includes having a sense for when (or when not) to settle, tax implications and the post-judgment process. Knowledge like that only comes from experience, which Julia brings to the table. I feel comfortable referring a client to Julia anytime.
