I hired Ms. Lucio to handle a Suit Affecting Parent-Child Relationship case with my ex who is the true definition of a dad beat dad. I looked at several other attorneys but Ms. Lucio's demeanor and attitude impressed me the most. Her fees were quite reasonable as well. As it turns out, I am very pleased with this decision. Ms. Lucio's knowledge of family law, her aggressive courtroom tactics, and her pure will to win have resulted in judgements in my favor.
Recently, I had an Enforcement of Child Support hearing, in regards to my ex's failure to pay child support. It was such a pleasure witnessing Ms. Lucio expose the lies and wrongdoings of my ex in court. His primary defense was that he had an inability to pay. Ms. Lucio proved this false and he was found guilty of contempt on all counts of failure to pay child support. He was put on probation and now has to make regular payments, including arrears, fines, and reimburse me for my legal costs. She was also able to get his payments for my legal fees included with the child support payments. So, if he doesn't pay my legal fees, it violates his probation.
I would certainly recommend Ms. Lucio to anyone in need of a strong, capable family law attorney. She will fight for you and do her absolute best to get you a win.

I met Julie Lucio when I was at court and I saw how she defended and protected one of her clients who wasn't even present at the time. I immediately contacted and hired her! She was very knowledgable but I loved that she carried her law book to use as a reference if needed. People told me that I wasn't going to be able to protect my child the way I saw fit but with God and her help, everything turned out better than expected! I would definitely retain her services again and I would refer her to my family and friends. She's very tough and fair! I am truly appreciative!

My ex pushed me around for a year and half. She would not let me my nearly enough. I tried to go see my son every single day and she just wouldn't me. I tried to settle outside of court with me ex numerous times and she would never work with me, so we had to go to court. Julie Lucio took charge of the courtroom, and got me everything I asked for and more. I ended up getting more time with my son than I was willing to settle for outside of court (which is very rare for the guy to get in this situation). Julie was the ultimate professional in there. She was extremely well prepared, and she was indefinitely better than my ex's attorney. I would highly recommend Julie Lucio to anyone dealing with a similar situation to me. Because of Julie Lucio, my son will get to spend a major part of his life with his father now. I am forever indebted to Julie for everything she has done for me and my family.

1/02/2011 Julie Lucio was the Lawyer who represented my case in a Dallas Court room. What a PRO Ms.Lucio was! Julie Lucio was so much more prepared and professional than the apposing counsel (whom client was bring a suite against me). Julie Lucio had all her facts in order, showed the opposing counsel he did not have a case. Within 20 min. Julie Lucio had completely turned this case and told the opposing Lawyer we were ready to go before the Judge and WIN! Bottom line is Julie Lucio won this case before the hearing got started! Thank You, Julie Lucio I will brag about you forever! Pass out your business cards forever as well! You are # 1 in my book!
Thanks so Much!!!!

Julie is a straight-to-the-point kind of Lady. She will not sugar coat anything and will be up front and honest if she thinks you stand a chance or not. My ex-spouse bullied me for 12 years, and needless to say, once Julie was done with the case, the ex left me alone (or at least for now). It’s Because of Julie that my son can live life. He now has Braces and is playing in sports and can have the things he really needs. I wish I had her my first time around with my ex. She really opened my eyes to a lot that I did not know t. She Kept in touch with me every step of the way and gave me the strength I needed to get through it. She even made it to a court date the next day after being admitted in to the ER all night. She would call me as late as 9:30 PM if my case needed any extra work. She will make sure she is prepared for anything, and I would also like to say her office staff is AWESOME as well.
She is amazing to watch in the courtroom!!! She has integrity and class. I would refer Julie to my family, friends and Co –works. I will use her again if needed.
Julie, you truly are a blessing from God. <><

I have used Julie for several matters including modifications, enforcements, and now termination of rights. Julie always takes the time to listen to your case and is very upfront and honest about how the case will go and cost. Her prices are a little higher than other attorneys I have used in the past but she is well worth every penny! I recommend her to everyone and will continue to use her in the future.
Thank you Julie for everything you have done for me and my family... you really helped change our lives.

Julie was late to the first hearing by 30 minutes. Julie did notshow up for the second hearing. Julie was pushy and would not listen to me. Julie is unreliable and barely spoke in the court room.

I had been the victim of a bunch of lies my ex told the court and her attorney and as a result I couldn't see my kids. I felt other attorney's had their mind made up that I was a wife abuser. Ms. Lucio listened to me and went through tons of documents and reports that my wife had made to cps and to the court. Ms. Lucio found so many inconsistencies and caught my ex in a bundle of lies, right there on the stand. After 7 months of not seeing the kids, I have a relationship once again. I have learned you get what you pay for. You can't feel secure when you have some flakely attorney. I knew when I met Ms. Lucio, that she was the one. She has a strong personality and a very solid demeanor. You know she means business and I saw results.

Julie Lucio is the best Family Law Attorney that I have ever seen! Hands down! To see her in action , in a court room, "unbelieveable." My case was complicated, because I was dealing with a lot of emotional distress and feelings of betrayal from my ex-spouse. She is a licensed psychologist, as well, so she was able to cater to that side of me as well. She commands the respect from the opposing counsels, at all times, by making sure that everyone is on the same page, during this time, looking out for her client. When I first saw her I was like "WOW"!! She had a "powerful" demeanor about her, that I couldn't put my finger on. When first meeting an attorney, you feel that most of them are "ONLY" about money, which was my biggest fear. I searched for other attorneys, but I kept coming back to her, because it was something about her that I felt was exactly what I needed to fight for my children and also my needs as well. I was a stay at home mother, for over 15 years, and was afraid that I was going to be left to care for my kids alone, my ex-husband was definetly trying to railroad me, because I hadn't worked, as well suffer mentally by wondering how I was going to begin my life again with no job and no money. My ex-spouse didn't care how we were going to manage, but Julie made sure I understood that all feelings had to be placed aside and I had to do what was necessary to win in the courtroom.
She always wanted to do the "right" thing at all times, because she had "genuine" desire to make sure that is done by the book, which I thought was a wonderful display of "integrity and character".
As my ex-husband continued to throw jabs during the process leading to the final trial, I wanted to react to EVERYTHING!! She advised me otherwise, again, the integrity factor.
Before my final trial, I recieved so much support from her very professional staff. A staff that really cared about me and how I was feeling. We became a family and they encouraged me to move on with my life, and they helped me through that very difficult time. I was able to walk in to the courtroom with a sense of peace, knowing that I was covered by one of the best lawyers of our time. I felt protected as if she was my "guard"..almost. She fought for me to the end. I watch her deliver the knock out punch to the other side, and I walked away from my divorce hearing with a ruling from the judge that was unbelievable. It made me feel better about my divorce and that finally I can move on with my life and raise my children, knowing that we are financially secure and that the burden is now lifted. I got stuff that I didn't even ask for!!
I was afraid of "life after divorce", but am now thankful that I was finally able to let go and focus on living my life and being a great example to my daughters and my son. I really learned the value of "you get what you pay for" and I didn't even have to worry to much about that either cause the judge made my ex give some attorney's fees back too!! Life is good and Julie Lucio ROCKS!!!!
