Julie was amazing during my case, even helped me with the possibility of another case by aiding in finding another lawyer (since she isn't able to handle the 2nd case). First, when I initially called her voicemail it stated that she was out of town and wouldn't be back until after my hearing date- if an emergency to call her cell. I decided to leave a message and hope she got it instead of calling her cell. At the time, I didn't know her and I didn't exactly thought it was an emergency. Julie called me a few hours later, she immediately jumped on my case which was greatly appreciated and a little shocking considering what you hear about some lawyers. Julie certainly took her time with me, she knew I was nervous about my hearing and made sure she went over everything with me. Julie even went over questions with me so I felt comfortable on the phone. She went over the order that the hearing would go so I wouldn't be surprised by anything. Julie basically held my hand throughout the whole process, because she knew that is what I needed (since it was my first time). In the end all her hard work paid off and she won my case. I couldn't have done it without her!
Julie helped me with my Unemployment Benefits Appeal for Voluntary Quit on a job where my employer was doing illegal activities and asking me to do the same. She was upfront, knowledgeable and affordable. Julie took quick action for me and took the headache out of wondering what to do or what was going to happen. She was very clear on her instructions and answered any questions I had quickly. We won our case hands down, and I'm very thankful for her help. Heaven forbid, I should ever have to go through that again.....but if I did, I would hire Julie Oberbillig in a heartbeat.
Thank you so much Julie!
She did a wonderful job at helping me with my concerns about unemployment and union dues question. Explained what I should do and maybe what I could expect to happen. She answered me very quickly and I appreciate all her help. Now I feel a little better, having more hope that I may have a chance to receive some payments from them and not be completely disqualified.
I came to Julie with not a penny to spend. She read my statement, met with me for free, gave me some preliminary advice, obligation free, and then offered to take my case on contingency. She attended court with me when I had to get a sexual assault restraining order put through for my protection. I can NOT tell you how helpful it was to have her there. There were several instances where filing fees were necessary, I again, did NOT have any money to put towards this. Julie fronted the costs and put them into our written agreement.
As soon as any new information was available in our case, she updated me and offered to answer any questions I had. She took over communications with my employers and informed me of my rights, which allowed me to get out of the unsafe environment and be free from any hassle. She enabled me to begin separating myself from the incidents and begin recovering right away.
Within a very short amount of time, I believe less than 2 months, both parties had reached a settlement and I was awarded funds. The business has made some staff changes that would have otherwise not been made and hopefully it means a safer workplace for all current and future employees.
Julie was beyond helpful and very sweet. She helped me feel relaxed and confident during a very tumultuous time in my life. If you need help, GET IT! AND I recommend Julie. She is wonderful.
I can't say enough wonderful things about Julie. I was referred to her by another attorney I had previously worked with. She handled my case with professional ease. She answered all of my questions promptly, took the time to listen to my concerns, was very thorough, organized and detailed orientated. She also took the time to inform me of my options, while making her fee structure amenable to my financial situation. After meeting with her in person the day of the hearing, I truly felt her passion for her work. If you are in need of a lawyer to help you fight Unemployment Securities denial of your benefits, she is the one to go to!!
I hired Julie Oberbillig to represent me in an appeal when my unemployment compensation benefits were denied because my former employer lied about the reason for my termination. After filing my Notice of Appeal myself, I realized that I was at a distinct disadvantage handling this on my own against my former employer, a law firm! When we met for the first time, Ms. Oberbillig was already working for me, having that morning put in her Notice of Appearance on my behalf.
In the telephonic appeal hearing, Ms. Oberbillig was very professional and skilled in asking questions of the employer, resulting in the judge requesting more details which when left out made it appear that I was terminated for cause. The judge seemed annoyed when she got the clarification she asked for and the truth was revealed. A few days later we received notice that we had won the appeal and the denial of benefits had been overturned.
One important thing I learned from Ms. Oberbillig was that documentation I believed would support my position was, in fact, lacking in some details which could actually play into the hands of the employer, giving them "evidence" that they could manipulate to support their lies. Had I not had Ms. Oberbillig handling my case, keeping me from providing factual documentation that could be wrongfully manipulated against me, I likely would have lost my appeal.
Without reservation I recommend Ms. Oberbillig to anyone needing an attorney who is knowledgeable, effective and personable while still being affordable. I especially recommend that she be retained early before the client unwittingly provides "evidence" that can be manipulated against them. Ms. Oberbillig is efficient, professional and caring, and I felt her fee was incredibly reasonable. She did a great job for me!
Julie represented me in an unemployment hearing. My previous employer did some illegal things such as discrimination. She helped me stand up, tell the truth and defend my rights. I really feel truth and justice won in my case because of her knowledge, hard work, and simply just being awesome at what she does. She went above and beyond many times.
I was so happy to find Julie. She had a limited amount of time to review my case, she was punctual and I felt very confident in Ms Oberbillig's legal advice. The thought of the hearing made me very nervous and Julie made me feel at ease. The day of the hearing came and Julie was a true professional and I was very impressed with her preparation. The hearing went well and I couldnt be happier with the outcome. I checked around with friends of mine in the legal profession and I found Julie's fee was more than fair. I would highly recommend Julie for any unemployment issues.
Julie Oberbillig is an outstanding attorney who focuses on problem solving. It is rare to find someone of Julie’s caliber and professionalism in this day and age. Her down-to-earth attitude makes her easy to talk to. I felt she cared and was really interested in me as a person, not only my case. She always took the time to work on problems and she explains legal matters to a non-expert in understandable terms. Her friendly, personable manner makes her a pleasure to deal with. She has high ethical standards and she does a terrific job for her clients. I would recommend her to anyone who wants a highly skilled, ethical, honest attorney.
Julie has definitely shattered my negative opinion about the legal profession, and in my opinion, the world would certainly be a better place if everyone had the ethics and skill Ms. Oberbillig does.
The outcome of my case was much better than I expected, thanks to her. I would highly recommend her to anyone that needed a good lawyer. She is a true professional and very honest.
Thank you Julie, for your wonderful service!
Julie was professional and responsive. From the beginning, I felt Julie had my best interest at heart. She was prompt in returning calls and answering questions. Her follow-up was excellent.
