Julie was born and raised in Southern California. When her parents divorced, the sunshine outside did not match the emotions inside. Julie understands the emotional pain you and your children are going through. She is a supportive ear and fierce advocate. Upon her graduation from University of California at Santa Barbara, Julie began a successful career in the television and film management side of Los Angeles' entertainment industry. Julie negotiated employment contracts for television and film stars and worked with top agents and managers. She was accepted into the Academy of Television and Film as a member, and is still a member. After ten years, she set out to advocate for those more in need.

Julie finds working with parents and foster children in juvenile dependency extremely rewarding. She helps mothers and fathers tackle real world issues such as substance abuse and helps reunite them with their children. Julie enjoys fighting for the best interests and educational rights of the foster children.

Julie's talents in trial advocacy and dispute resolution make her an excellent choice to represent you in your family law or juvenile dependency case. She is up to date on current laws for probate and family law guardianships and conservatorships, adoptions, child custody, restraining orders, and divorce issues. Julie will work with you to draft a pre- or post-marital agreement, a surrogacy contract or a sperm donation agreement.

I highly recommend Julie!

She helped us win
Julie Wolff doesn’t tell you want you want to hear, she tells you what you need to know and understand. Even if you don’t like what she is saying, listen because she knows what she is talking about. She helped me take the emotions out of it (which were high) so that I could understand the law and what we needed to focus on. She fought to uphold the law, which in our case was against CPS and social workers recommendations. We WON! I’m so so grateful for Julie. She took our case last minute and plowed through it. Our family is so happy we won’t lose another relative to the system. ( we’ve been here before with another lawyer and lost) If your family is as important to you as mine, HIRE HER

Efficient, cost-effective, smart advice
Julie was efficient, cost-effective, and gave me smart advice on a family matter involving 4 other attorneys. Plus, she worked on a very tight deadline and was a pleasure to work with. I would recommend her for other family matters including those needing a mediator.

Child Support And Visitation
I had been struggling to be heard at child support court. I got tired of the court being unfair. My sister highly recommended Julie Wolff. I reached out to her and i was so pleased at our consultation that i hired her to represent me. Sure enough the court heard my side of the story and Julie Wolff was able to get my child support reduced and my visitation increased. I am very happy with the outcome and just like my sister I highly recommend Julie Wolff.

Shes honest and very humble! She truly cares about helping you. I would recommend Julie anytime!

Thank you Julie
Been trying to serve papers for years. All the other attorneys only spoke of upfront fees and costs but not Julie Wolff! Not only did we discuss that stuff later, she explained so much more in detail to reassure me that this would finally be done correctly. I'm so happy she was referred to me and I have already referred her two of my relatives for custody cases. Thank you Julie!! Thank you so much for really taking the time to explain everything and making me feel like I matter.

Bias and Negligent Minor’s Counsel
Bias, gross negligence and made discrimination against my home based i protected criteria. She said in court 6-18-2021, “””minor (Jacob age 3), should spend more time at father’s home, because at mother’s home there is young sibling with autism and grandmother is busy with THAT BOY (joseph age 10). She said this after receiving all medical and academic records of both thriving children, thriving under the care of the mother and grandmother. I have reported her to the Bar and am I calling for the incarceration of Julie Wolff for the malicious intent , discrimination and harm caused to my family and I. - she harmed 3 generations of the Casanova Family, - attorneys are trained in anti-discrimination laws, she has no excuses. - she retaliated and lied to the judge about the minors medical records to push father’s agenda against the minor (Jacob’s) medical diagnosis. Basically they went after mother by using discrimination of the siblings autism + the denial of the minor’s autism . A MINOR SHE REPRESENTS as a minor’s counsel. I am calling on the incarceration of Julie Wolff for the harm cause to my family The Casanova Family
