  • Dina Kay Steele

    Julia is a wonderful mediator. I have used her services on several occasions in high conflict cases. Julia did a wonderful job of calming the parties when emotions ran high and ultimately resolving the issues without having to take the case to trial. I highly recommend Julia Kerestine.
