A very sharp highly intellectual Lawyer with a whole lot of HEART
I called her office and Im surprised that she picks up her own calls NO Secretaries! She kept me posted at all times delivers result and I mean even weekends and very late night she's up working on your case. She is not a greedy lawyer, although SHE DOES HAVE A RIGHT TO BE... I tell her accurate info and soon as she asked me to read and review her documentations and letters I do it, and she reciprocate and goes above and beyond her clients cooperation.... THAT'S THE KIND OF LAWYER SHE IS, she does not say a lot at first, she listens to you and lets her client weigh in their options, she wont instigate fight between her client and the other parties just to earn a living... but she surely wont let her client end up as loser.... My ex's lawyer was very greedy and very ghetto... NOT JULIE... she's very calm, classy and as a matter of fact when we were in the court, random people approached her and told her " YOU ARE VERY SHARP AND CLASSY UNLIKE OTHER LAWYERS, THEYRE ALL MOUTH AND YET THEIR BRAINS ARE EMPTY", and when our case has received judgement she even had to help the other lawyer figure out what to do next. She comes in prepared and organize and on time, if not half an hour early. Ive not seen any lawyer ever before like her and my Dad was a lawyer he was very kind and very smart, but JULIE?... I MEAN SHE IS SET APART, I MAY NOT BE ABLE TO FIND ANOTHER LAWYER LIKE HER, at least not my lifetime.

Best attorney we have worked with.
We hired Mrs. Julie Warshaw's for Guardianship and Special Education Law services. Throughout she was kind, understanding, patient and very diligent. Guardianship was completed very efficiently within a few weeks. Even for the special education services her approach was different than others. While discussing the matter she would even use the nicer words for the other party too. Saying let us understand their point of view and resolve the matter. Unlike some others professionals who will bash the other party during the first appointment but will be less responsive once the contract for services is signed. But we saw her same level of commitment as the case went on. As others also mentioned she is really an attorney with a heart! She is extremely knowledgeable about all the topics too. We cannot thank Julie enough for everything that she has done for us. We highly recommend her.

Best thing I ever did!
I was looking for an anti harassment intimidation and bullying attorney and had no idea where to find one so I googled. Do you know that search engine pulled up angels and there was Julie Warshaw. Julie is professional, well respected, and most of all CARES about her clients. She produced the optimal outcome and best of all made me and my son feel protected. It was the best decision I ever made to hire Julie.

Amazing, all I could ask for
I hired Julie after talking to a few other lawyer when I was getting divorced. She was incredible through out the whole process, always going above and beyond, with my rights and preferences in mind at all times. She was kind, understanding, patient and very diligent. I could not recommend her more highly.

An Amazing Professional With A Heart
Julie Warshaw is an anomaly; she is an attorney with a heart. An incredible knowledge of special education and rights, for which I hired her, as well as a deep seated desire to better a faulty system for these young impaired students. She is direct and to the point unlike so many attorneys who know little but showboat much. It is without question that I highly recommend this lawyer for her exceptional abilities on so many legal and personal fronts!

Education Case & Civil Case
Julie has exceptional knowledge in Education Law and she has a passion for helping students who've been diagnosed with various disabilities; she successfully helped us with our son who has Asperger's Syndrome. The school system failed him & she was able to prove that in a Court of Law. We are currently working with Julie on a civil case, and we feel confident that she will present a thorough and well demonstrated case. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Julie has been fantastic!!
Julie has been a blessing from above. Our son was really done wrong by the School / District as well as by the Administrators. Julie has been a guiding force of knowledge, compassion and understanding. The School / District and Administrators failed on countless occasions to provide the services of your son's IEP and Julie was able to successfully obtain these services for him. Words can not express how fortunate we have been that Julie is in our corner. We are still in an ongoing situation that has many levels. To date and as a direct result of Julie, we have been successful at each and every level. When you have the truth, the facts and most importantly, , the expertise of Julie, you know good things will happen. Julie has been so patient in her quest to fully understand everything about our Case and to hear her when she is discussing the Case, you would think that she was there which has been so comforting for our son and Family. She has become part of our Family. We can not thank Julie enough for everything that she has done and without question, she has been and is the best. Thanks!!
