Honest, Knowledgable and very kind lawyer
Julie was an absolute pleasure to work with. I had an estate issue in Colorado, but I am from another state. My budget was very limited and she kept within that budget. She was very professional and helped me through a major milestone in the estate process. Thank you so much for all your help Julie.

Excellent service!
Julie recently prepared estate documents on my behalf. After interviewing several different attorneys, I found mostly large firms intent on selling me services I didn’t need. Julie carefully reviewed my situation and provided excellent guidance. Her attention to detail and follow up was top notch. She carefully explained each document she prepared and guided me through the process, patiently responding to each of my questions. I highly recommend Julie and will definitely return to her for future needs!

Friendly, knowledgable, and efficient.
We are very pleased with the work Julie Myers did on our estate planning. She took extra time to explain (and re-explain) concepts about wills, deeds, and other inheritance issues. Once we decided how to proceed, Ms. Myers prepared our documents for signature and processed them very quickly.

Enjoyable and Informative
I contacted Julie to review an employment contract and guide me through what avenues to travel once it expired, specifically a non-compete clause. Julie put my mind as ease about the future and explained what lies ahead. It was a very knowledgeable experience and enjoyable, as well. I highly recommend Julie for any contract or business needs.

Compassionate, Smart, Transparent
Julie Myers helped me handle my mother's estate during a very difficult time. She accommodated our changing schedule, visiting our home twice, and was very kind—and never condescending—to my elderly mother. Julie explained our options clearly and presented her very reasonable prices upfront; she was true to her word. I wholeheartedly recommend her and her estate planning services.

Excellent for my Business Consulting and Contract Needs
I needed a lawyer to consult with for my photography business questions as well as contract creation. I contacted several Lawyers in the area and Julie stood out immediately in my initial phone conversation with her. She validated my concerns for my small business and assured me she new Colorado Law and that she would be able to help. I hired her and she immediately got to work on researching my particular business needs and contract wording. I felt relieved at her level of professionalism and prompt responses to my needs during our time working together. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a professional, personable Lawyer who goes above and beyond to help her clients.

It's all in the Investigation and Preparation
Ms Julie Myers performed everything that we wanted, and things we did not even dream of, above any expectations. She prepared so much behind the curtain, that by the time we arrived in court, there was little for the judge to say or do. She prepared books with all the exhibits for all participants, and even had all the stipulations prepared. What could the judge say but 'if there are no further questions, I rule in favor....'

J. Myers was very professional but kind in the preparation of medical powers of attorney, financial powers of attorney, and wills for my husband and me. She carefully explained each step prior to any signatures and the entire process was superbly and painlessly accomplished. We are recomending her services to all our friends and family.

An Attorney With Integerity, Honesty and Willingness to Help You
If you are looking for someone to work with you and be honesty and give you the right legal advice I would recommend Attorney Julia Myers. I had worked with a couple of attorneys in Colorado on an estate case in probate court in Colorado. With me being out of state I was not being advised properly, thousands of dollars later. I sought our Ms. Myers and the pleasant attitude and knowledge was breath taking because for 3 years my family had been mislead. I would highly recommend her! Thank you for your help!

I contacted Ms. Myers because I needed an Agreement for my services drafted. Ms. Myers was very professional and timely in her communications and work product. I explained what the scope of work for my services would be, provided her with a job description of what a TC does, and she was able to draft a document that I am very pleased with. I would recommend her services to others without reservation.

Wonderful Service!
Ms. Myers agreed to work with me on obtaining guardianship for my father. I live in another state and Ms. Myers customer service was exceptional and she is very willing to listen and delve into the details of what type of legal services exactly were needed. When I met Ms. Myers in person she was very personable and provided the support and legal advice I was looking for. She has the ability to pinpoint the issue and suggest the appropriate legal services I needed. I would recommend Ms. Myers to anyone and believe she is extremely intelligent and takes an interest in the individual and focuses on the best solution possible.

Working with Julie was absolutely amazing from the moment she shook my hand at the beginning of my free consultation through the completion of my case Julie made me feel like I was her only client. Julie’s attention to detail made me completely confident each and every single time we headed into court. Her knowledge regarding each aspect of the law backed up with her ability to anticipate the other sides strategy just shows that Julie is an expert in her field!

Needed an attorney
My husband and I had some very difficult legal issues and we needed help. From the moment that we stepped into Mrs. Myers office our anxiety over the situation was cut in half. Her attention to detail and making sure that we understood what was going on. What our next step was and what we needed to do, made all the difficult moments throughout our legal issues bearable. Mrs. Myers court presence and her professionalism is hard to match, we weren't just another client, she fought for us like we were family. Her knowledge combined with attention to detail, communication, integrity, and work ethics I would definitely retain Mrs. Myers again.

Great Work On Our Wills
We were recommended to Julie and couldn't have been happier with her work for us. She really listened to what we wanted and provided separate wills for my wife and I. The turnaround was prompt and exactly what we requested, Julie was always available for questions.
