  • Andrew Nicholas Wilson

    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.
