Beware of this firm. They charged excessive fees and they did not work on my behalf. In fact, I paid double what my ex-husband paid. They failed to demand complete discovery responses and actually told my ex-husband's lawyer that he only needed to produce income tax returns and social security statements. Since they failed to obtain the proper discovery & told the court that the case was trial ready, I was left at a serious disadvantage. They also sent letters that I did not approve. This firm's philosophy and general practice is to bill excessively and to force their client's into a fast inequitable settlement.

Julie took my case over after months of going through a highly contested divorce. She is very knowledgeable, very detail oriented, very attentive to any concerns and questions. She managed to move my case forward quickly after being at a standstill for months. She stood up for my rights as a mother, and for my children's rights in the midst of bold faced lies. She put a stop to the financial games my ex was playing and he was held accountable. She is a no nonsense, extremely effective professional and I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Prior to hiring Julie I was spending hundreds of hours researching case-law, all while enduring a hostile co-parenting arrangement, and sustaining a demanding career as the sole bread-winner for all parties involved. It seemed futile, whereas I was doing all of the leg-work and my previous attorneys were just an expensive formality. I was exhausted as neither the Plaintiff, my attorney, the local police department, or the courts seemed empowered to enforce my child's best interests.
When I began this journey I was frustrated and determined not to allow anything or anyone to jeopardize my child's livelihood. I needed help with navigating the onslaught of negative allegations, parental rights violations, and administrative hoops that were levied against me as the father and Defendant. How do I ensure the best possible outcome between my child and I? What are my rights? How do I steer around the lies, obstacles, biases, and litany of stigmas that are (and were) inferred about my character from the on-set?
I interviewed a handful of attorneys, some who seemed entirely focused on their payment demands, and others who proposed a cookie-cutter approach with little regard for the details of my case. For me the biggest determinant was whether or not my attorney was willing to leverage these details in order to pursue and defend my child's best interests. Julie was and is THAT attorney.
I'd been writing my own certifications during the initial court appearances. During the first two years of my custody dispute I'd leveraged AVVO.com for the "how-to's" and guidance on how best to manage an extremely contentious co-parenting relationship. My child and I were being alienated from one-another, and during this time Julie (and team) were the primary responders. Their advice consistently revealed opportunities that my previous attorneys' never bothered to consider nor pursue. Ultimately I hired Julie's firm to represent our case, and I have never looked back since.
Julie has been a valiant defender in support of our child with a vast knowledge of the law. She has an even greater knowledge of the social/professional landscape whereas her integrity and experience is evident in the confidence and high regard that her peers (judges, clerks, administrators, and other attorneys) exude. Out of almost 25 hearings over the past 3 years Julie has secured +90% of our expectations/demands each time, regardless of the obstacles presented. This speaks to the reasonableness of her judgment, approach, presented arguments, and certifications filed.
Julie is authentic, credible, authoritative, and tenacious. Custody disputes are emotionally taxing, and I have asked Julie at least 1000 questions over the course of our tenure together. Julie has consistently researched, confirmed, and conveyed each answer in a palatable manner in which I was able to digest. As a result I have been able to successfully course-correct when required.
The Plaintiff was tirelessly manipulative, and took extreme measures to complicate, delay, and extend our case. My character and even fitness as a parent were under constant attack. Throughout each turn of events Julie never lamented or sought the "convenient" compromise. She fought tooth and nail for my child's well-being, likened more to an aunt or close relative as opposed to our attorney. She is a staunch advocate and protector who is unrelenting in the pursuit of her client's best interest. She is an outstanding writer and orator, who's tactical approach, communication style, and keen attention to detail articulately cut to the chase, and dismantle any vague or otherwise less credible hearsay. She get's to the bottom-line and cuts to the bone.
I highly recommend Julie without reservation - best decision you will ever make!
