Friendly & Experienced
Julianna helped my fiancé with his Divorce. We called for a free consult and by the end of the call we hired her! We did not need to look any further. She ensured us a great outcome in the end and she did just that!! The fears of having to get a divorce and now knowing where to begin was very unsettling until we meet Julie and she came highly recommended!! We thank her so much and will be celebrating our nuptials this year and it was all because of her!!! Her knowledge and reassurance helps ease the process.... We recommend Julie!!!!!

Effective and Experienced Attorney
Julie took on 2 cases simultaneously for me and we reached favorable terms in both cases. During a very stressful time, speaking to her brought comfort and confidence that things would be ok. Her experience and wisdom were apparent when she made good recommendations on how to best approach each case and made accurate predictions on where things were headed. In the end we reached a resolution sooner than I had expected and I would definitely hire her again if ever needed.

Recommendation for Julie Smith
Although this is the first time I have had the need for the services of a family lawyer, I am able to make comparisons with experiences that a friend recently had with her divorce. I found Julie to be very patient with me, taking time to explain terminology, process and meanings of words. Julie was articulate and didn't fall back on legalese when pressed for an explanation or further information. I appreciated Julie's ability to lay out options for me, when the situation took an interesting turn and I had to consider my daughter's medical condition. This became further complicated when my daughter wanted to have nothing to do with her mother and Julie provided different strategies that we could use All in all, I felt very confident that Julie would always have my best interests at heart, which I think is something very reassuring when going through the emotional roller coaster that is a divorce. If I had to critique Julie on one area, it would be that her responsiveness can at times be improved. On occasion she would come back to me 2-3 days after I had sent a question and apologize for being really busy, or indicating she hadn't seen the message. In my business, we use our assistant's to review and prioritize the requirements for the manager to provide feedback. Even a quick response, indicating she'd seen the note but will only be able to respond within a certain timeframe that would go a long way to managing her client's expectations. That said, if I had to do this again, and I surely wouldn't want to ever do this again, I would definitely contact Julie again

Highly recommender Julia
It was my first marriage and the divorce was heartbreaking. In the past 12 months, I've been so down and I felt into the lowest point in my life, due to some issues caused by my ex-wife before and during the litigation process. As my attorney, Julia was kind-hearted, professional, patient, and willing to help me out. She proposed good legal suggestions, and tried best to solve my difficulties. She is a great listener and communicator. I think she was able to see through the mess and help me find the clue and next steps. She is also diligent and responsive. I highly recommend her to whoever is suffering in their marriages.

Great to work with
Julie was great to work with at all stages of my case. She not only explained the process but also took great care of checking what the adversary lawyer is sending our way. She is very approachable and always made a point to notify whats good for us and whats not, to calibrate steps forward. Overall, it was a pleasure working with her. Would definitely recommend to hire.

I totally recommend her
Working with Julie was a pleasure, she has been very understanding of me when I was going through my difficult time, she was empathetic and would actually listen to what i wanted as an outcome and deliver on it . She is very efficient as she identifies, understands and delivers on the nuances of your case even before you have processed everything. She is very well adept with the knowledge of her field and the best part is she is prompt in her responses, concise and to the point. She makes you feel confident going through with all the legal processes and she has your back. She is dependable, reliable and you feel paid attention to and taken good care of. More importantly, she makes all this seamless. I appreciate all your work Julie. Thank you so much!

Knowledgeable, Friendly, and extremely hard working
Julie was such a pleasure to work with. She never complained or made me feel like my issues were petty and I appreciate that in an attorney. I had never worked with her prior and so I did not know her well but yet she was very welcoming to my phone calls, and took the time (sometimes late at night and on weekends) to work on my case and bring resolution. She certainly fought hard for me and I am very happy with the outcome. I would return to her in the unfortunate case that I would have another legal matter.

Very pleased with Julie's work
I worked with Julie after initially hiring Bryan Freedman and his wife Tanya to represent me. Tanya moved to a different practice and brought Julie with her. Julie did the lion's share of work with me during the divorce process. It wasn't a very contentious divorce as far as things go, but I feel Julie knew the law, knew my rights, and knew me and my positions. She kept in enough contact to make me feel in the loop but not so much that I felt pestered. She is a lovely, happy, friendly and warm young woman who is professional, efficient and kind. If you have a divorce and are looking for a capable person, I would recommend Julie with no reservations. Weiner Lesniak is a very good firm, by the way.

Skillful and Knowledgable!!!
Julianne Smith took over my case when Tanya Freeman was unable to continue due to personal reasons. She handled the transition very professionally as this was a very stressful time for me. Julianne took on the case confidently and all dealings were handled in a timely matter and as if she was my lawyer all along! All paperwork was handled and I truly felt that I could trust her throughout the process. Tanya eventually came back onto the case but in the interim Julianne filled the spot successfully. For a young and newly licensed lawyer, Julianne Smith has the knowledge and skills to take on the case as if she is a veteran to the field! I truly believe that she will become a top rated lawyer in time. I am very grateful for her taking care of myself and my family throughout this case!
