It has been my pleasure to come to know Julie as she has come into our office. As a fellow criminal defense attorney we have shared numerous legal discussions, analysis and have even worked together on some minor cases. Julie's attention to detai, stamina, and talent at finding the weakness of both the witness and the prosecutor are unmatched. She gives every case 110 percent and the results always show.
