In general, I'm not a very big fan of attorneys and I pretty much believe that they deserve every bad joke that's ever been told about them. Julie has been my attorney for several years now and I can honestly say that I've never once felt that she falls into that category. She is an excellent attorney, but just as important to me, she is also a good person and she has a good heart.
Julie has several qualities that I admire in a person and they carry over to her professional work. Among her best qualities is that she has a strong sense of what is right and what is wrong. Too many attorneys will gladly disregard all ethics and morals in order to chase a buck. I would never believe that Julie would do that. She knows what is right and she always takes the higher road. Along with that, Julie is one of the most tenacious people I know. When she believes in something, she is like a bulldog. She absolutely will not give in. Those two qualities combined make for an excellent attorney.
My case is an ongoing affair with an ex who has nothing better to do than to cause problems for me. Julie has ALWAYS been there for me throughout the never ending drama. She is never too busy to help me, she has offered me advice more times than I can count, and on some occasions when I was ready to give up, she has even been the rock that has steadied me and gave me the strength to keep going. She has more than once given me advice that ended up leading to a better outcome for me, but less money for her. That is integrity and it is very much appreciated. If she were not my attorney, I would be honored to call her my friend.
We've had many successes together and we've also had a few setbacks along the way too. I've received more than one scoldings from her, she doesn't always agree with me, and a couple times things did not go our way, but never once did I doubt my choice, her ability, or her dedication to my case. I've always appreciated Julie's honesty and because of it, I always know where I stand so I am able to make the best decisions for my case.
Julie has my full confidence and I intend to keep her as my attorney until either my ex straightens her act out or hell freezes over, whichever comes first.

She stepped up for me during a very difficult time in my life. I was being stalked and harassed by someone. She was so professional......yet I felt totally reassured that I was going to be ok. What a good person she is. I would highly recommend her. I have had some very brutal and totally unfair treatment by lawyers who didnt protect me. Nor were they concerned about the impact it had on my life at the time........or future ramifications that still affect my life. Julie is the best as far as I'm concerned. I would highly recommend her as a true professionsal who cares and gets the job done. She is great!!!!!

I had originally contacted her husband to be my divorce attorney. He took a position as a judge in Farmington and I was forced into using Julie. Mrs. McCarver is a sub-par attorney at best. She took my case and drug it out way longer then it needed to be. She never kept me informed of what was going on in my case unless I called her and asked. Then she billed me for listening or reading my emails asking her for an update on my case when she had failed to do her job. I understand I am was not her only client but weeks would go by with no contact from her office unless prompted by me. She was very unprofessional when I told her I disagreed with her billing techniques she basically told me that it is what it is and I needed to pay her in full. I refused to pay her until she corrected the bill. She sent me to collections and when her attorney contacted me we had this resolved in two phone calls. I paid exactly what I thought I should have paid when the case was complete and the billing was corrected not the incorrect bill she was claiming. I immediately paid her and am glad to be rid of her and the whole situation. I wouldn't recommend her just for this primary reason and if you do hire her keep track of all your phone calls and emails with her as she will try and over-bill you for services not rendered. If you do choose to use her and she does this to you I would recommend contacting the Attorney General.

I have used this attorney for ticket, municipal cases and my custody cases. She has been my attorney since 2004 or 2005. She got me exactly what I wanted out of my custody case and now I have sole custody of my children, which is great! I would recommend this attorney for custody cases or criminal cases.

I have used this attorney more than once for my divorce, modification and contempt cases and she has been consistently great. She worked very hard for the result that I wanted and was always available to communicate with me. I would absolutely recommend her to anybody going through a divorce or custody case!
