Ms. Julian is a spitfire, and she's passionate about what she does. When she found out that I wasn't receiving child support for my daughter, she stepped up and told me she would represent me free of charge and all I had to do was give her the information she needed and show up to court. Within a matter of weeks, my case was settled, she tripled the amount I expected to receive.. And still wouldn't take a cent from me. She really is an angel. I wouldn't solely rely on the negative reviews, look at her endorsements.. She shouldn't need to baby people, she's a fighter who knows the law and people really are scared to go up against her- my ex's lawyer included.
She rescued me from an incompetent attorney and saved my sanity and substantial dollars The case took 5 years and she never abandoned me and was extremely reasonable. I highly recommend Pamela Julian if you are serious about justice being served. BTW.. my case ended up in federal court.
I'm sorry to hear about the bad reviews with most of the individuals on here, but I can't help but sit back and think were you also doing everything on your end to make your case successful to win! My husband found out about Pam through someone who actually lost custody of her kids by her! Right away we noticed that she was "different", however I think that's one of the reasons why I liked her. She was very blunt and honest with my husband and told him exactly what he needed to do to win custody of his son the first meeting we had. She also advised him of her pricing but has been willing to take payments with us! Which has made life so much easier. Not only does she know slot of other attorneys and judges, but she knows exactly what to say to get what she needs out of them and ultimately gave the best gift ever to my husband and I...Custody! She's mean, but in a good way! She gets the job done!
She represented my friend and basically threw her under the bus, quit and told her to find another lawyer half way through the divorce
She is cheap. However you get what you pay for!! Be very cautious she will waste your money and does not file paperwork correctly in court. She did not keep me informed and never knew what my case was about when we went to court every time. She will waste your time by having to goto court multiple times for the same thing due to incorrectly filing and informing the other party. When she wrote up my paperwork to turn into court after the trial she did not put correct information so it was thrown out. DO NOT USE HER if you care about getting what you are requesting.
Ms. Julian did show up for our court dates and she did send me specific information. However, when I contacted her (at her request) she was rude, unprofessional, and sarcastic. She hung up on my on two occasions. When I was able to come to an agreement outside of court that would no longer require a hearing she dropped me 18 days before the final date leaving me to find another attorney at the last minute. I would say that if you expect an attorney who will represent you in a manner that is both efficient and professional than you should look elsewhere.
I have been working w Ms. Julian for about three months now after being unhappy with two other attorneys who charged twice as much and basically did nothing much to help me gain visitation rights w my five yr old son. I have an extremely unreasonable, antagonistic mother to deal with who believes it her duty never to allow our son see me nor my elderly parents who long to see their grandson consistently before they die. It is the case from hell and I am out of money fighting a crazy deranged and misguided, drama- inducing, female-supremacy type. Ms Julian fights w passion, can come across as short tempered, and always seems to have my best interest at heart. She does not seem to be in the lawyer game for the big bucks but rather to help imperfect people in imperfect situations obtain equitable access to their families and attempt to add quality to life. Bottom line: We are finally getting some results. Is it perfect yet? No, but we have gained much, and things are getting better. If you want an attorney to spoon feed u while u sit back and expect everything handed to you, go pay twice the rate at a bigger and plusher firm. If you want a fighter who wont back down, hire Ms. Julian. She will never win a Ms. Congeniality Contest, and that is precisely why I need her....to deal with an unreasonable foe.
Pam Julian is knowledgeable. However, she can be unprofessional and rude. Her follow up and communication is lacking. On several occasions I provided required paperwork and documentation for the case but organization is not her strong suit. She does not keep you informed of what is going on. I was the one contacting her to check the status of case and she would ask for me to get back in touch with her versus following up herself. I discovered by my ex-husband that much of the information needed for the case was not provided and produced when requested, thus I ended up with additional legal fees. On one occasion, I found out after the fact, from my ex-husband that I was supposed to be in court on a day which I was never informed of by her. When I tried to address this with her, she was quick to anger and does yell. She even hung up on me once because she was so angry. She lacks professionalism. I had to consistently follow up with her, typically after work (5pm) and she would claim she was at the courthouse?? Didn't make me feel valued as a client. Curious if she has had previous complaints or grievances from other clients. I am sorry to say, i would not recommend her.
I too believe Mrs. Julian is an angel sent down from above. She has truly helped me out with alot of information I did now know, and so far she has charged me nothing. She appeared at court before me, signed me in, and reset the date before I even got there... and I told her the night before my case. I truly love Mrs. Julian and I am exstremely greatful to be working with her. She seems very know her way around the court room and she knows just exactly what she's doing.
i will not sit here and listen to anyone say anything bad about this attorney she is a saint sent from heaven my name is john and thanks to her i am in my little girl angels life now. Most important i got full custody and how good is an attorney when she gets full custody for an dad , but for a dad still on parole. also lets talk about her rates i feel for mrs. julian cause she honestly does not represent for the money. In any case you should do the leg work your self if you dnt know about your husbands finances hire a forensic accountant dont put it off on your attorney to know these things. I love mrs julian and her aggressiveness it shows me it is the practice of justice rather than the payoff that intrest her. So in short you get what you pay for in this world dont complain when your attorney tells you to stop being a baby and learn how to do some things on your own. Mrs. julian dnt listen to what this whinny little girl said about you im sure she got a good deal for your services. And im sure you won the case. Some people are just unappreciative.Mrs julian you are an angel thank you for everything.if you want a good attorney you will hire mrs. juliasn just remember yes maa'am and no ma'am be respectful and she will be respectful to you
