About Julia

Learn Julia’s areas of practice.

I am very passionate about my job, and I take pride in managing client expectations and obtaining results that are fair and just for my clients.  Navigating someone through a difficult transition in their life is not always easy, but it doesn't have to be a negative experience. To the contrary, a clear focus on goals and providing a clear understanding of the process and the law for my clients increase the chances of achieving positive results, especially when my clients heed my advice and stay in contact with me on a regular basis.  These things are crucial, not only to have a compatible attorney-client relationship, but to also achieve goals and meet reasonable expectations for both myself and my importantly, my client.

Client
Ms. Pendleton was able to get court ordered spousal support for me from my ex-husband after waiting 11 years. She was very professional and she gave me updates through from the beginning to the end of my case. I was very satisfied.

Great Attorney with a Great Team
Mrs. Pendleton has been a much needed relief in my high conflict custody case. I have never seen an attorney more prepared everything she steps foot in the court room. She has represented me in a few different matters and every time the decision was in my favor. Her team has been nothing less than amazing also.

Simply Amazing!
Mrs. Pendleton and her legal assistants were simply amazing. They made sure to keep me up to date with each and every detail that was going on in my case to the point that it did not even feel like I was out of state. She was understanding, informative, and affordable. I am glad that I hired Mrs. Pendleton and would recommend her to anyone that is searching for a family law attorney in the Greensboro area!

Amazing Attorney
Julia did an amazing job representing me in a very important case. She not only is dedicated to her clients, however she is also compassionate, as is her entire staff. If you want an attorney that will fight for you and your case, she's who you want. She is the Legal, "The Devil Wears Prada". A class act, yet knows how to handle a court room!!!

Absolutely Amazing
Exceptionally skilled attorney with incredibly good people skills. I hired her to manage my Child Support case and she was not only wonderfully reassuring throughout the entire process and answered all of my many questions and concerns, but she was also impressively successful in achieving goals. Would recommend her to anyone needing services in her field.

Excellent Lawyer
I contacted Attorney Pendleton to represent a family member in a domestic violence matter. From the consultation through the successful resolution of the case Attorney Pendleton’s compassion, confidence, and exceptional command of the law were evident every step of the way. While no one wishes to find themself in family court, I can think of no one better to retain then Attorney Pendleton. Her preparation was meticulous. She was fluent with all the facts of the case. This was exhibited when she presented exhaustive evidence at the hearing. Communication was extremely important to our family. Attorney Pendleton was timely in her responses to our many questions. It was a time of great stress, and her poise, kindness, and legal expertise helped us all through a very difficult time. I recommend her without hesitation. She is a superb lawyer.

Separation Agreement and Child Custody
I was very apprehensive about seeking counsel regarding my issues but Ms. Pendleton allayed all my anxieties and professionally addressed my concerns. I am so thankful for her empathy and the manner in which she legally represented me in obtaining such a favorable and optimal outcome.

Thank God for Julia Pendleton!
My experience with Julia lasted about 18 months through a contentious divorce battle. She never let me get bullied around, understood the issues and the law thoroughly, was always quick to respond to my questions and concerns. She and her paralegal Tammy are incredibly organized. They know their stuff, and they are hands-down the best legal team I could have asked for. The end result of my case was better than I could have ever hoped for - and it's because of these two. Ruthless when she needs to be, didn't back down or allow me to get pushed around, but also wasn't afraid to tell me what to expect. You won't regret hiring Julia.

Extremely efficient and Honest
Hired Mrs.Pendleton to handle a ridiculous divorce situation and she fought for me until the end. She helped me understand what I needed to do and she always returned my phone calls asap. We communicated in various ways which was a plus for me since picking up the phone wasn't always something I could do. She is honest...her staff member Tammy is on point and works under and abides by the powerful and strict ethics of Julie. If you want someone who will tell you like it is...work diligently...answer all your concerns through the process...and keep you focused...call Mrs. Pendleton today. She is the best. Living witness.

Best Lawyer In Greensboro.. Hands Down
Mrs. Pendleton is the best!!! With my situation being extremely complex. Not only did she represent me extremely well but, I won. I depend heavily on Mrs. Pendleton. Her staff is phenomenal... Tammy is prompt and extremely patient and professional. When it comes to questions regarding family matters, I depend heavily on Mrs. Pendleton's advice. If you hire her as a lawyer, you will not be disappointed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Mrs. Pendleton, I appreciate all you have done for my family.

An Attorney and Friend
I don't know quite where to begin...I have been going through a nasty divorce. But for me, it has actually been a pleasant experience because of how Julie has handled my case. She emails me daily, and that is no exaggeration. I know exactly what is going on with my case and I trust her advice and experience. So far she has not let me down. I have tremendous respect for her and have recommended her to several of my friends. The two that I know of who have also hired her would say the same thing. You can't go wrong with Julie!

Attorney Pendleton is a great lawyer and resource
I am currently going through a custody case that has been trying physically and emotionally. Attorney Julie has been a great support system through this. She has helped me get through this situation, a situation that I thought would never happen to me. Just like any law firm, it is a little pricey but she is worth every penny. She is prompt, courteous and empathizes with you. I would not know what I would do if I did not have her for a lawyer. My intentions when I made my initial call, was to go with another partner within this firm but the staff heard my situation and informed me that Attorney Julie would be the best fit. I know that I should wait til my case is over but if I lose or win, I know that Attorney Julie had did her best because she already has exceeded my expectations as a lawyer. I would recommend her to anyone and would be a reference if she ever needed someone to justify her credibility as a lawyer.

Great experience
Have been using her services for over a year now for domestic/family court, support, custody issues, Julie is caring, compassionate, ethical, and has a good standing with her peers and court staff. She knows my case as well as I do. I will never go to court again without her, ever. I appreciate that she will work as a team with her clients and does not approach or pursue lawsuits frivolously. Absolutely worth every penny!
