So glad I found her!!!
Ms. Fortunately was truly a Godsend! I was at a low point in my marriage and NEEDED out! I was concerned because my now ex husband was incarcerated and I didn’t k ow where to begin. I saw a billboard one day while heading to Atlanta and I sent an email to Ms. Fortin and that is where the magic began. It took 5 months from start to finish ONLY because my ex was dragging his feet about signing the papers. Not only was she an excellent and diligent attorney; but, when I was emotional, she encouraged and consoled me. She said she understood! The personal touch was evident and felt. I never met her in person and was able to handle my entire divorce via email and phone calls. She knows her laws, she knows what it takes to get it done and she helps guide you during the entire process. She constantly keeps you updated on the progress of your divorce and i would recommend you do yourself a favor and retain her for your legal needs. She was also quite affordable! Thank you Attorney Fortin for such excellent and professional service!

Great Service!
Julie was incredibly responsive and extremely detailed. She made my divorce process move incredibly smooth and as quickly as possible. Her prices were reasonable (and stated upfront) and her work without reproach. I highly recommend her services and will not hesitate to use her again in the future.

Excellent!!
I hired Julie Ernst-Fortin to help me through my divorce and she exceeded my expectations. I was thrilled by her efficiency and diligence concerning my case. My uncontested divorce took no time at all to complete. I had no need to speak to Julie in person because everything was thoroughly explained to me via email and I followed her directions precisely. One month later my divorce was finalized and I couldn't be happier. Ms. Ernst-Fortin really relieved me from any normal stress a divorce would entail. I highly recommend her for a quick, stress and drama free divorce.

Quick, easy, low cost divorce
I found the uncontested divorce process to be extremely uncomplicated since Julie Ernst-Fortin PC provided easy to follow step-by-step written instructions along the way. Julie answered my emails promptly with clear, concise responses, and let me know the anticipated timeline for every milestone in the process. I thought about trying to file the paperwork myself but I am glad that I didn't do that because it seems that it would have been confusing to do on my own. Without a doubt I would recommend Julie Ernst-Fortin PC to anyone considering a divorce.

Excellent Choice for an Attorney!!
Julie Ernst-Fortin is the best attorney you could retain for your divorce! She is very organized and detailed oriented! Julie always kept me updated on my case. The process took approximately 7 weeks from the time I filed to the time I received my final decree. She made a difficult process run very smoothly! On top of her excellent customer service, the cost was within my budget.

She'll get the job done! Don't do it yourself & mess it up....Julie povides Step-by-Step Personalized Service for Budget Minded.
Can't say enough. She provided the service she advertised for far less than other Attorneys. I'm glad I went through her rather than attempting to do it myself because I now know that I wouldn't have been able to complete the steps required without a glitch or two. I probably would have ended up paying much more in the long run. She advetised a very tempting, low cost personalized servce and she came through. I very much appreciate her honesty and resolve to provide the service advertised without charging unnecessary fees. Thank you.

Quick & Easy Divorce
Julie made my divorce process very smooth and quick. With her detailed emails and instructions, I knew exactly what to expect, what to do and approximately how long everything would take. When I had questions, she always responded in a timely manner. From initial contact, start to finish, for me, was only about 8 weeks which was really great. I couldn't have been more pleased with how smoothly everything went.

Highly Recommended
Julie was my lawyer through an uncontested divorce and she could not have made the process any easier. I did a lot of research and not only were her rates the lowest I could find, but she had plenty of clients in the area to leave her great reviews. She laid out every step for me, included me in everything, and also only contacted me when something was urgent or needed to be attended to immediately. My ex and I had an uncontested divorce, but we had no idea where to start -- Julie broke down the entire process and was with us every step of the way. I am so thankful for her, especially in such an emotional time, that she was there to guide me through it. I highly recommend Julie and her services -- if you're looking for economical, prompt, and painless, she's your lawyer.

Prompt and fair
Julie's response time to questions was appreciated. In my case; an uncontested divorce, trying to not spend too much money yet know that all paperwork was complete and fair, Julie was great!

Quality, affordability, and expediency
Was a pleasure working with Julie through a difficult time in my life in going through a divorce. She kept me in the loop throughout the entire process and had all feedback to me in a quick manner. It is clear that Julie values her clients' time and respects their wishes. The cherry on top is that her rates are very reasonable. Would highly recommend Julie's services.

Best Resource for Sound and Professional Advice
I think in any divorce, things happened that people aren't prepared to deal with. Julie advised both of us as to what was fair and equitable. In my opinion, her advice definitely helped to save us both from a financially bad experience. She demonstrated that she knows the system and provided services in a timely, sensitive and professional manner. I recommend Julie to anyone faced with such an important and difficult situation. Thank you for assisting me and helping make the tranisiton more bearable.

Divorce
Julie was great! She made my divorce really easy! She did absolutely everything and explained everything very clearly! She was extremely affordable and very nice. She responded to my questions and concerns very quickly! I didn't even have to show up to court which was great! All I had to do was fill out paperwork and send them right back to her and she sends clear instructions on what you have to fill out. I would recommend her to anyone if you're looking to get a divorce. I'm sure she does a great job with other types of cases as well.
