  • Deborah R Lush

    Julia is a quality lawyer. She is professional, courteous - to all parties, and generous in time and spirit. Her background as a therapist gives her a unique ability in both her mediation and her estate planning practices, as she is able to pinpoint the issues in a gracious manner and aid the parties to find collaborative solutions.

  • Stephanie F Wilson

    I have had Julia's assistance on many of my cases, resolving difficult issues between my client and the opposing party. Julia has saved my clients a lot of attorney fees by facilitating agreements and drafting thoughtful and detailed documents outlining those agreements. I highly recommend Julia's services to my clients who want to pursue mediation.
