About Me

Not only is Julie Lucio a licensed attorney by the state of Texas, but she is also Board Certified by the board of legal specialization in Family Law.  Less than 1% of all Texas attorneys are board certified in family law.  Ms. Lucio exclusively practices in the areas of Family and Divorce Law. As a mother of two, Ms. Lucio appreciates what is at stake in a family law case. She understands the complexities of family dynamics and the emotions that are involved when your family issues become legal issues. As the Managing Partner of the Firm, she has overseen hundreds of family and/or divorce cases. In addition, Ms. Lucio has a Master’s of Science in Clinical Psychology degree. She has counseled families and individuals before practicing law. She was involved psychology education as a Professor of Psychology for Collin County Community College and Dallas County Community Colleges for 10 years. She brings her expertise to the courtroom with her vast experience in public speaking and teaching in the areas of Psychology of the Personality, Psychology of Adolescents and Children, Abnormal Psychology and Social Psychology. Ms. Lucio attributes her background in psychology to her successes in picking juries, questioning witnesses and negotiating settlements.


As the Founder of the firm, Julie Lucio has maintained the philosophy that attorneys should maintain an exclusive practice of one area of law.
