Found her after firing the attorney I had who did nothing, nothing for me but take my money on a divorce case. She was very upfront and told me that it would be difficult to prove my case for spousal re-imbursement of my funds he had spent, but she worked tirelessly and was very patient with me. She was amazing and extremely knowledgeable during the mediation. I left with a lot more than I thought I would get. She was always quick to get back to me re phone calls or emails. I would definitely use her again !!

Julia handled my divorce after a 30+ marriage. She was very responsive to my many phone calls and emails (I was probably a little too bothersome); she kept me apprised of what was going on with opposing counsel (or lack of opposing counsel's work); she referred me to another attorney for another matter that came up during the divorce (he was very good too!). Even though the divorce took much longer than I ever dreamed it would, or should, I think Julia stayed on top of things and kept things going despite my now ex-husband changing divorce attorneys in the middle of it all, AND filed for individual bankruptcy. Thanks Julia!

I simply can't say enough good about Julia. When going through the most painful time of my life--a divorce from a marriage of 30 years--she was my light in the darkness--a friend and desperately needed legal advisor. Though she saw and understood my pain, she consistently kept me on track. Through the whole process, she helped me, advised me and diligently and persistently kept me protecting myself, which at times, without her, I was completely unable to do. She is loving, kind, persistent, gentle but firm, honest and truthful. I was in so much pain and grief that I'm sure I took up much more of her time than I should have, but she remained patient, knowledgeable and kept me on track with my eye focused on the truth, which I desperately needed. Because of her advice and diligent concern and care for me I am moving on to the happy and rewarding life I deserve. Like I said, I can't say enough good about her...simply can't. Without question, I will definitely keep her as my attorney for all my future legal needs!

Talks a good game. Is easily out-maneuvered by opposing counsel. Doesn't follow through timely. Frequently dictates her beliefs into the situation without carefully listening to the client. Claims to be an excellent mediator/trainer but doesn't get results for her clients. Again, decides for the client what the outcomes of the mediation should be rather than listening to her client and following through on the clients' objectives. She is also excessive in billing her fees.

I was divorced in November 2010. Without Julia I would have not had the confidence and knowledge to properly get through this challenge. I completely trust Julia as she is best in class for her law knowledge to her client relations to driving for the best results. Before my divorce I had no idea of the laws but with Julia guiding me through the process it was not overwhelming. I strongly recommend Julia.
