We were referred to Julia by a mutual friend and it was one of the best things that ever happened for our family. Julia's vast knowledge of the child welfare system and the inner workings of the Department of Children's Service made her indispensable to us and our family as we navigated the winding and bumpy road of foster parenting and adoption. She was kind and patient but always honest and never sugarcoated anything. Thanks to Julia, our adoption was smooth and the paperwork fast and easy. I would not hesitate to work with her again should the need arise and encourage anyone looking for an adoption or child custody attorney to call Julia immediately. She is prompt to return emails and phone calls, always answered our questions thoroughly and patiently and did everything she said she would do (and more) quickly. I have no doubt that our family is complete today because of the help we had from Julia. Thank you so much.

After speaking with many attorneys in the Blount County area, I met with Julia Spannaus. She was very knowledgable about the adoption process and her advice opened many options of where we should go moving forward. She was very thorough and professional. Also, I have a particularly hard schedule to work around and she went above and beyond to make everything work out. We are grateful for her work with us and will be using her services on a second adoption in the the future.

The professionalism that I observed when working with Julia as an interpreter convinced me to hire her services for my son's conservatorship. She was honest, thorough, knowledgeable, and very respectful of my son's special needs and family's circumstances. We were granted conservatorship very speedily. Thanks, Julia!

I worked with Julia at the Department of Children's Services and she eventually became my supervisor. She is very knowledgeable and is a very zealous advocate for her clients' interests. During my time with the child support office, I referred her multiple clients as I knew she would handle their cases with the utmost respect, knowledge and professionalism.
