We met with Julie and she was very attentive and listened to what we had to say. She was very understanding and she did inform us of certain legal things that we had to abide by and she gave us all the information that we needed to proceed with our divorce. She was very thorough. We had our papers sent in a very timely manner. I would recommend her for her professionalism.

Julia actually came to my rescue twice. The first time, I was fortunate enough to stumble across her website while looking for divorce mediation. We did not have the time or money for court battles; we just needed someone to insert some sense and sanity into what is already a tricky and painful process. Julia was able to make our divorce process simple and straightforward, and we both felt like we were heard! Four years later, I contacted Julia again to help me with the next intimidating process of amending the divorce agreement. Again, I felt like she did her conscientious best to humanize and streamline the process (and save me money!) with her compassion, quick thinking, and thorough attention to detail. And as a bonus: she answered my panicked emails in a timely and kindly fashion.

Julia was our mediation attorney . I can say that through your this difficult process, Julia was composed, calm, professional and guided us well . This helped us make sound decisions during the process . Julia had showed us that mediation is the way to go when people are already going through difficult time in their lives . Julia's knowledge and professionalism were evident through out.
We did not know a lot of information when we started the process . Julia has explained every step with details and what to expect from start to finish.
I recommend Julia to anyone who is looking to go with mediation !!!
