Julie Canter Law
Julie is a Professional that is dedicated to helping her clients. She is not your typical lawyer in that she wants to do what's right for you and guide you the best way possible during hard times. I cannot stress enough how important it was that I found her when I needed a lawyer (never thought I would need one). Julie is great to talk to and help you understand the situation and your options. She is extremely professional but if the situation warrants it she will dig in and fight like no other. I don't think it's possible to find a better lawyer in the tricities.

I hired Julie to represent me on felony drug charges. She was able to get my charges reduced to misdemeanors

Fighting for You
I was charged with a felony & Ms. Canter was recommended by a friend. This was the first time I had ever been in trouble. I was scared, nervous & felt helpless. After I met with Ms. Canter I was more at ease. She was upfront with pricing (which was fair) & what my options were. She fought for me & kept me updated with any new changes that happened to my case. In the end, we won my case & the charges were dropped. If you want someone who will fight for you, she is the lady you are looking for.

Excellent attorney.
Julie Canter did an excellent job on my case. While at the DAs office in Blountville she was invaluable in bringing justice for me. Very professional, kind and considerate. She brought my childhood abuser to account for those terrible years. Very genuine and sincere person. Highly recommend.

I had a BK-7 on my TransUnion report. The date is incorrect. It shows from 2016 but BK was in 2012. I also had 60 days late on a car loan from 2019, no collection and charge off Citi bank from 2019 paid. Started rebuilding December 2021 with 522 FICO 8 but none of the strategies worked. I have to look for a credit repair company which my colleague at work recommended to me as a PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST to me. I believed her because I knew she was having a bad credit score but that day she showed me her credit score was above 800+ I contacted them immediately to be honest I was not disappointed. Within 6 days PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST wiped out all baddies on my credit report and increased my FICO SCORE to 811 I’m so EXCITED for what they did for me on my credit report. If you need help in fixing your credit, I will recommend them to you via: [email protected]

On at three separate occasions I have personally recommended Ms. Canter to individuals needing assistance with legal issues. After consulting with Ms. Canter, each friend hired her and was well pleased that they did. Ms. Canter knows the law, she is extremely experienced and most of all, she will fight for her clients.

Ms. Canter is extremely knowledgeable of the law and she worked diligently to resolve our case. She left no stone unturned and her determination proved to be a game-changer. She was very responsive to us and we were able to rest easy during an otherwise difficult time. Her diverse legal experience is unmatched and I can confidently recommend her for any legal issue you might face.

Divorce and child custody
During my divorce case Ms. Canter always made time for me when I had questions during this difficult time. She worked tirelessly and always returned all calls, emails, and texts. She cared about my case and me as a person. Will definitely use again

Excellent Attorney
Julie prepared several legal documents for myself and my husband. She didn't do as most attorneys and have someone else take care of the paperwork. She made sure, herself, that all was done correctly, we were happy with the content, and she did it with both kindness and professionalism. I can honestly say, I've never met an attorney with her integrity, knowledge of the law, along with showing such respect for her clients. She explained everything in detail and in a way we could fully understand, never once being inpatient. She would certainly be my recommendation to anyone seeking legal help. She goes above and beyond to do whats best for her clients.

Domestic Abuse Victim
In 2011 the DA’s office was appointed to prosecute my husband in a domestic abuse case. Ms Canter worked at the office during this time. She and the team worked very hard on my case. Ms Canter treated me with kindness and respect. And my case resulted in a guilty verdict. Thank you.
