I have had a few occassions that I needed a lawyer to handle some divorce situations and Julie is is one of the, if not THE, best I have ever encountered! She advises, counsels, and stands up for her clients with everything she is made of--there is no plowing this woman down! The best thing is that I have sent numerous friends--men and women--and she has represented both sides fairly and vehemently, regardless of their "side" of the divorce. Be honest with her, bring ALL your documentation (even if you think it might be a silly thing, bring it) and share EVERYTHING with her--the more she knows the better she can advise you! Once I became her client there was nothing any other lawyer could try to send me that would make me nervous, she handled all the letters (communication), affidavits, documents, court dates (sometimes I had to go, sometimes not) and did not worry at all. One time I had an ex throw me the proverbial "curve ball" in court, but when Julie finished with them we were more than victorious!!! Nothing ruffles this ladies' feathers, you can't make her blink, and cannot surprise her, she has seen it all! I love her and will send people her way until she retires!!!
