I'd give her 10 stars if I could
We started reaching out to lawyers by email on a Sunday morning. Julie called us back before lunch. She's responsive professional and aggressive in court. And we didn't just hire a lawyer, we made a friend. Julie genuinely cares about her clients. She treated our situation like it was her situation and almost a year later still keeps in touch. If you need the best there is, call Julie Camden.

Excellent Service from Beginning to End
The firm of Camden and Meridew expertly saw my wage and unjust enrichment claim through from initial offers to settle out of court, through court proceedings and then the recovery of my claim. The team was always professional, courteous, responsive to questions and forward thinking. My proceedings involved special circumstance given my employer had dissolved the business that owed my back wages and other reimbursements. However, attorney Julie Camden, had the foresight to lay the groundwork during court proceedings to prove that the cooperative veil had been pierced as my employer had not kept personal and business funds separate. As a result, the owner was personally responsible for the payments ultimately awarded by the court. Had she not done this additional time and resources would have been required after the initial proceedings to make this case. I highly recommend the firm.

Most Effective Attorney I've Ever Had - by Far
Short Review (Long Review later): Just hire her. Just do it. She takes your problems and makes them her problems and then she solves them with you. She is a no-nonsense professional that will not blow wind up your skirt to give you false hopes. She will give it to you straight, offer you advice, and then stridently represent you and your interests. Long Review: I hired Julie for a family law case. I had 3 different attorneys over 7 years, and they all could not achieve what Julie did. Speaking with others on the exact issues of the case, people kept asking me why things were still the same? Why have these problems not been fixed? Why is the court continuing to allow these things to happen? Well – they’re because I had not hired Julie Camden yet! In just over 4 months she got things accomplished that I only dared to believe were possible. Julie assessed the situation, the attorneys, the judge, the guardian ad litem, the parenting coordinator, and advised a best course of action. That course of action was not always what I would have imagined, but it all worked out! I did not get a temporary fix – I got a permanent fix. The solution that the court has ordered is the best for the children. And the solution is also the best for me too (and I would argue my ex-wife as well). She argued coherently and truthfully…and did not let the other side play the victim effectively, which had been done in the past. She was logical, organized, and got many points presented to the court that I was unable to show earlier. I could go on and on – but I would not hesitate one second to hire her again. She also does not try to get extra fees. Julie takes her client seriously, as well as that client's expenses!

10 Million Stars Is Not Enough
I retained Julie to handle the adoption of my daughter. From the moment that we contacted her, she was able to meet with us the same day, due to our time sensitive and urgent circumstances, and had begun the process of drafting the paperwork for filing almost immediately. She was so knowledgeable of the process, and so in tune with us the whole time. She knew the minute details of our case, understood the urgency of our situation, and fought tooth and nail for not only us, but for our daughter's well being, safety and happiness. She represented us at every level, Trial Court, Appellate Court, and Supreme Court. I cannot say enough good things about Julie and her firm. Not only did we get the desired outcome, but in a big, big way! I highly recommend Julie to anyone that is seeking help with an adoption!

Family Law/Child Custody
Julie did an excellent job preparing my family law case. She went above and beyond to achieve the results we were awarded in the end. Although things didn't end the way I had planned, I am 100% confident that Julie held our children's best interests and would recommend her to anyone, anytime.

Fantastic legal experience
My wife and I hired Julie to prepare our wills and estate documents. We loved working with Julie, she is knowledgeable, she is kind, compassionate and enjoys the work she does and you can tell with the pleasant client experience we received. I would highly recommend Julie for your future legal needs.

Great Attorney
I had met with several attorneys and was not having any luck when meeting with them about my case. With not having any luck I decided to search outside of my county and found Julie Camden. Julie is an excellent attorney. She is straight forward, honest, truthful, and will do anything she can to help you with your case. One thing I really liked about Julie is her honesty because it is so hard to find in an attorney these days. My case was a little difficult with the way things were setup already for custody and visitation for my son, but Julie was able to get everything we were needing changed and way more than I could have imagined. I would recommend everyone to Julie!!

Puts "Family" in family law
Julie has been my attorney for almost 10 years. She has always delivered positive results. Recently, when I discovered an action was being taken that could potentially break apart my family, I reached out to Julie and she took my call while on a personal family vacation.

Family Law case
Julie accepted to work on a complicated family law case. This case had been started by well regarded local law firm who, in my opinion, had not taken the time to understand the complexity of the situation and fumbled the ball when we got to court. After leaving the court house very disappointed after the preliminary hearing with this law firm, I was referred to Julie. She took the time to listen, ask good questions, and help flush out the strategies on how to fix the mess from the prelim hearing. During the months that have followed, Julie has been attentive to my questions, phone calls, and has allowed me to collaborate in the legal strategy. When preparing the briefs and at the hearings, Julie has always been extremely prepared. Her attention to detail is outstanding and her ability to think on her feet is very remarkable. I think more than anything, Julie cared about my case. She was emotionally invested and that gave me a lot of comfort as I knew she was not going to cut any corners and I would get 100% from her. I feel very fortunate to have met her and have her working on my case. I only wish I had been introduced to her before my case was started. I only have praises to give her and her team.

Excellent Bankruptcy Attorney
I had no idea that bankruptcy could help me as much as it did. While many others had advised me against bankruptcy, Julie suggested that it could help me turn things around. I was so afraid of filing bankruptcy but after talking with Julie I decided it was the best thing to help my financial situation after my divorce. I was able to get a fresh start from all the debt that my ex-wife racked up and I was left with. While going through bankruptcy is an extremely difficult emotional process, Julie helped make it easier by answering my questions and guiding me through everything. She was attentive, helpful, and listened to all of my concerns. Now that everything is final I am so glad that I took her advice.

My Child's Needs Before my Own
Without a doubt Camden & Meridew have changed my life. In the case of a custody hearing, they were able to beat the odds and help a father gain full custody of his daughter! They were professional, honest with me from the start, and made things work when they proved to be difficult. I could go on and on about how they have changed my life, but the most important thing is that they changed my child's life! And for that I will forever be grateful. My family will forever be grateful! If you are looking for a lawyer who will fight for what is right and just, and not just for the highest bidder, then you need to give Camden & Meridew a call.

Excelent!!!
Julie is hands down a professional and extremely knowledgeable in family law. Julie bend backwards in my case and more. In court she hit clearly all the key points that needed to be proving plus woke the judges eyes at times. Her support and honestly is what everyone needs in cases that have children involved. Her confidence in court transfers to her client and the atmosphere becomes relaxing. Another day at the office. Thank you Julie!!!

Great lawyer!
My dad and brother are lawyers. I have dealt with many lawyers in professional and personal areas. I know what a makes a good lawyer, and what makes bad ones. Julie Camden, is one of the good ones! She has both immense common sense and legal knowledge, as well as experience and wears it well. Julie is a lawyers, lawyer. She is able to quickly, extract out the important legal issues, from complicated cases and giver her clients a clear picture of what they are facing, as well as provide sound legal advise on how to move forward. She is also ethical, she doesn't drag out issues or problems, that don't have legal bearing, on the case, just to pad the bill. For a matter of fact, she could bill for much more than she does, on many instances. Julie and her staff are very professional, but warm, and keep clients appraised on progress and developments quickly. She will not leave you wondering, what is happening in your case. She explains, honestly, in very good layman's terms, what is happening and where you stand. I highly recommend her, in all the fields she practices in!

Absolutely Awesome, Professional, Intelligent, Knowledgable and above all Ethical Attorney
I recently hired Julie Camden to resolve a very difficult case, that had been going through 5 years and 3 other attorneys. I have seen my share of attorneys, and have witnessed some pretty unethical behavior. My only regret is that I didn't find Julie sooner. She has done exactly what I have asked, and actually kept me informed, via emails and phone calls, every step of the way, unlike other attorneys I had. I am so grateful for her wisdom and ability to pick up the pieces of this case, and get it resolved, when no other attorney could. Julie is very trustworthy, and worth every penny she earned. Her office and staff were very professional and helped when they could. She and her staff always kept me aware of my bills, so I never had any surprises, as I had been by other attorneys. To anyone reading her reviews, beware, there are attorneys out there that can't compare and will bleed you pocket book empty. There are ex husbands and attorneys who can't stand to loose a case and resort to making bogus reviews. Yes, the very review before mine is suspicious. There are attorneys, who have egos the size of Mt. Rushmore, and don't realize, they are going to be defeated by a experienced, organized, and higher intellect. Julie may be physically tiny, but she is a giant in the courtroom, respected by judges, and no bullies will intimidate her. Julie raises the level of attorneys professionalism and I hold her in very high regard. I'm so glad after such a long battle, I have my champion in Julie.

Best Attorney EVER
Julie Camden is absolutely the best attorney out there. I recently hired her to handle my divorce that was beyond messy. Julie not only handled everything that was thrown at me by my ex, she also kept me calm and took steps to keep my fees down. When all was said and done, I walked away with everything I wanted and 50% custody of my kids. She is straight forward, honest, caring, and will do everything she can for you. The best decision I ever made was to get divorced, the second best was hiring Julie to handle it for me!!!

Trusted advisor and debt settlement attorney
I went to Julie when I was in the middle of a divorce and in a terrible financial situation. She reviewed my income, debts, and overall financial situation. Instead of just thrusting me into bankruptcy, which I was already assuming would happen, she presented me with other options and other paths. She has begun settling my debts for much less than what I owed. I'm really happy with everything she's done.

Amazing lawyer, Amazing results
Julie guided my wife and I through bankruptcy. She was very professional and down to earth at the same time. She walked us through the process and let us know what to expect at every turn. Julie was also very timely at responding to calls as well as emails, and never my wife and I feel we were just another client. My wife and I are going back to have to have our will done. I would recommend Julie and the rest of her firm to anyone.

Getting our lives back.
We were referred to Julie Camden by an Attorney who could not handle the complexity of our case and needs. Julie dove in and gave us clarity on all of our needs and concerns. She was professional, efficient, knowledgeable in all areas of the law and the court system, and caring. I can not imagine that we could have had better representation. We have retained Julie for additional legal matters and would recommend her highly.
