About Me

I am a trial lawyer.  I have obtained numerous acquittals, or "Not Guilty" verdicts in serioius felony cases.  I graduated in 1997 from Gonzaga School of Law, where I served as an Associate Editor of the Gonzaga Law Review.


I began my legal career in insurance defense.  To gain trial experience, I became a Spokane City Prosecutor.  I fell in love with trial work, and in the years since I have tried more than fifty cases to a jury.  I have earned acquittals before juries in federal and state courts.


After almost fourteen years practicing law as "Julian Elizabeth St. Marie,"in November 2010, I married George Paul Trejo, Jr. , and took his surname.


After several years as a contract defender, I am now taking private clients. My areas of representation are criminal defense, civl rights,and personal injury.


I speak Spanish reasonably well and my staff speaks fluently.  I am available to appear in state and federal courts in Washington.

    I endorse this lawyer wholeheartedly. She consistently provides her clients with aggressive representation and achieves incredible results. Her dismissals and acquittals speak highly for this attorney. Not only has she achieved Not Guilty verdicts in State Court but has done the same in serious felony cases - a feat rarely achieved by the criminal defense bar. She is the type of detailed oriented lawyer you want fighting for you.
