I retired from the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) in 2006. During my early career, I was assigned to Hillsborough County, Florida for thirteen years, transferring out due to promotion in 1994. I had numerous bench and jury trials that were prosecuted by [then] Assistant State Attorney Julia Best. She was always fully prepared and highly skilled and one of the most professional prosecutors that I worked with in my 26-year career. During most of those years in Tampa, one of my duties included the recruitment and law enforcement training of auxiliary troopers. These are citizens that volunteer their time to assist full-time troopers in the performance of their duties. At my request, Julia took time away from her busy schedule to teach the law classes. She did this on her own time and at no expense to FHP. She was a truly dedicated public servant and she exemplifies the finest qualities of her profession.

Right from the start Ms Chase wanted to know everything about my case. We discussed what my expectations were and her experience in dealing with this type of issue. She explained everything up front and explained the best way to proceed. She answered all my questions and concerns and wanted to make sure I was confident about the best strategy to implement in order to move forward. There were no surprises and I was kept informed on the process as necessary providing me with the information to prevent any surprises of what could happen in our potential court appearance. As it turned out my case was settled out of court but she was well prepared to represent me with expert to give testimony if necessary. Not only was Ms Chase professional, honest and result driven she had compassion and wanted me to know she was not going to leave any rock un-turned to provide me with the best chance to win my case. Her entire staff were friendly and always willing to help no matter what question I posed. They would find out the answer and get back to me in a timely manner. I have the utmost respect and confidence in hiring Ms Chase again. If you need an attorney and you want someone who will represent you to the best of their ability or if necessary consult with an expert for your best interest there is no other choice than to hire Ms Chase. I know this from spending over 20 years as a law enforcement officer.

It sounds very cliche to say your lawyer was a knight in shining armor, however, that is literally what Julia Best Chase was to my family. In a world where grandparents virtually have no rights and the compassion of others lives between the lines of the law, and the heart, or best interest of the actual child somehow gets lost, this wonderful person, never gave my family false hope and never stopped fighting! She was 100% honest about the potential outcome, but assured us she would stay committed to the case, and that she did! For 3 years, I watched her skillfully research and counsel my family through many ups and downs. She was in constant communication with us about every aspect of the case, her compassion and dedication, we will never forget! Her knowledge in her craft is unparalleled, and my family trusts her with our lives! As I close this review, I am fighting back tears, as this wonderful "knight with a heart", gave my family the greatest gift we could ever receive. I will always pray that God continues to bless her every step. And if you are reading this review, simply stated: this lady saved my family, and for that, we will ALWAYS be grateful.
