I recently hired Julie to provide legal advice, based on a recommendation from another family member. I found Julie to be a true professional in all aspect of of the Legal process from the start to the end. She was a true advocate during a very stressful and challenging period. I would not hesitate to contact Julie for additional legal services.,

Julie is a great lawyer. She always responded to my questions in a timely manner. My divorce was the first time I have needed to deal with the court system and Julie always kept me informed and let me know what to expect next. That was something that I really appreciated. Also, if she wasn't sure about something she would be sure to contact the correct people to find out. I would recommend her!

My honest review of Julie (she's great)
I have had Julie retained for about 5 years now. She is and always has been an awesome attorney through out the entire process. She's on top of her game, she informs me immediately of any information that I need to be aware of, she's a great communicator, and I always feel safe knowing that she's representing me. I'm a very unbiased and objective person, but I really can't think of anything negative to say about Julie; she's not only a great lawyer, but she's also a very nice person and easy to work with. For whatever your legal needs are, I can say from personal experience that using Julie's services will be a good investment!

Julie Pawluk A+++
Julie has been my family attorney for 14 years. We have had several court hearings throughout and our case has been successful every single time we have been in court! She is great at what she accomplishes. She is thorough, fair, and keeps her clients updated in the process every single minute of the way. She has also represented a friend of mine and was successful in that case as well! For as long as my family will need legal services, Julie will have our backs!

I Recommend Attorney Julie Pawluk
Julie Pawluk has been our attorney for more than 25 years. She is honorable and trustworthy. When we have questions, Julie speaks with authority. Because of the areas of expertise available in her law firm she has the resources available to define information, and never answers questions without being certain that her replies are accurate. Julie is supportive of her clients, always putting their best interests at the top of her priorities. I recommend attorney Julie Pawluk.

"I endorse this lawyer. Julie and I are long-time colleagues. We have had several divorce cases together and I found her to be very competent and thorough.
