If you ever find yourself facing any legal family issues, I would highly recommend hiring Julie Park. No one ever wants to be a party to divorce, as it can be a very overwhelming experience. Julie is not only experienced in all aspects of family law but her calm demeanor helps to alleviate the stressful situation. I hired Julie for what was supposed to be an easy and amicable divorce; unfortunately there were some unexpected obstacles that arose. Julie not only handled each situation with expertise and respect for all parties but she also kept me informed of each phase of the process and made me aware of potential outcomes. Julie knows how to get results in a sound and ethical manner without jeopardizing the integrity of the profession. I also cannot stress enough how she makes herself available to her clients, whether it be email or telephone, I always knew that she would be prompt in responding to any and all of my concerns.
I should also note that my ex had hired an attorney from a large swanky downtown Seattle law firm. This may have intimidated some solo practitioners but Julie was unfazed by opposing counsel and the end result was a fair and reasonable resolution.

Julie is smart and does an excellent job for her clients. I have been consistently impressed by her ability to use her knowledge of the law and the court rules to best help her clients, and by her common sense, no nonsense approach to family law issues. She is willing to tackle the difficult problems, and does so with top notch legal skills.

I have never reviewed anyone online for anything - as I often find that these type of reviews are often generic, are unflinchingly glowing, or written by people who are angry they didn't get exactly what they wanted. That being said, I felt compelled to write a review for Julie as I cannot reccommend her more highly. She is extraordinarily knowledgeable, ethical, efficient, realistic, and responsive.
She was particulary helpful in responding in a measured, yet appropriate manner, when my ex's counsel was particularly aggressive during the mediation process. I think many attorneys could have used this as an opportunity to respond agressively- ultimately resulting in many more billed hours, but her/our response was very direct, unflinching and no-nonsense. Ultimately this was the breakthrough in my divorce that led to a fair and reasonable (and suprisingly amicable) settlement that avoided a great deal of stress, additional money spent, and ultimately allowed for a much better relationship as co-parents moving toward the future.
If you need someone with a huge office in a high-rise building (and the hourly rate to go with it), Julie may not be for you. If you are looking for someone who truly knows what she is doing, has the respect of her peers, and will communicate with you at every turn in this very stressful process- you really should talk with Julie.

I would strongly recommend Julie S. Park for anybody who has the misfortune of experiencing the ordeal of divorce, or for anybody who finds themselves considering a divorce. Julie was my lawyer throughout my divorce. Her knowledge of Family Law was exceptional. My divorce included many details that are normally not a part of a divorce case, however Julie was knowledgeable and could assist me. The best interest of my children was always considered. She was very responsive to my communications, she kept me informed with what was going on in my case, she would always ask how I felt about the direction we were going to take as we proceeded. She always explained the risks and uncertainties. Her paperwork was complete, well-organized.
I always felt very comfortable and at peace throughout the entire process.

I would strongly recommend Julie Park for anybody who is considering divorce, or for anybody who finds themselves unexpectedly in a divorce. I wish I had Julie for my lawyer all throughout my divorce, the way she tidied up the mess left by previous incompetents was very impressive (yes, I sued the previous lawyer and won for malpractice, but it was still awful).
Throughout the time she was my lawyer, she was very responsive to my communications, she kept me very informed with what was going on in my case, she let me help as much (or as little) as I wanted to, and she was very good about describing where the risks and uncertainties were all along the route. Her paperwork was complete, well-organized, and extremely well-written. Julie really knows what she's doing.
What I liked most about Julie is that she knew when to dig in and fight at all costs, and when to let things go. She's not a lapdog or a bulldog, but she can shift gears and play either role, depending on which will work best for my end results. I felt very comfortable trusting her.

The difference here is that she doesn't just know the law, she "gets" it--she understands what you are going through, what you are dealing with, and what you are trying to accomplish. That is priceless.
Oh, and she answers her phone and email right away (also priceless)!

Julie Park literally came to my rescue. My original attorney refused to deal with my ex's attorney ever again, and the next attorney quit as well. I was faced with a lawsuit over mistakes made by the ex's attorney, but that did not stop Julie. She got me through a very difficult time. She guided me right through it, knowing it would not be easy . Julie knows what to do and does it well!!
