"Family law is not about winning a legal battle – it’s about ending the conflict..." - Julie R. Mack
“Family law is not about winning a legal battle – it’s about ending the conflict, finding workable solutions and reconnecting the pieces of your life in a way that allows you to build a new future.”- Julie R. Mack, CLS-F
Julie’s work is to guide you in unraveling your conflict and generating options, so you can visualize new, very freeing possibilities for yourself. Her approach leverages her profound gift to stay neutral, to see all the pieces of your divorce puzzle and make the connections others just cannot see.
Julie believes that all divorces have the potential to be contentious. It is the attorney’s job to be able to manage the conflict and reduce it so the parties are able to make rational and reasonable decisions to move forward. She does not take on your emotion, so she can see a full 360 degrees of all the intricacies in the connections and the potential to open up more options for you.
You will experience a team approach of goal setting, case strategy and case management based on your individual needs and circumstances as she and her team work to:
As a former social services worker, Julie appreciates clients’ needs for solid communication, strong advocacy, emotional support and efficient case management. All driving principles of her approach and team work ethics.
Experience and Qualifications
Julie has a unique ability to recognize what pieces need to be woven together and how to weave them to get a good resolution for all involved. That comes from over 18 years of exclusive family law experience working on more than 1,500 client cases and matters. She especially enjoys working with complex financial, business and property issues.
In all types of family law matters (i.e., mediation, litigation, collaborative, consulting, agreements), Julie is a master at weaving connections that create possibilities for people to see their lives for what they can be.
In 2010, Julie was certified as a Family Law Legal Specialist by the California State Bar Board of Legal Specialization. Her path has included graduating Magna Cum Laude from California Western School of Law in 1996 and joining the firm in 1997 as an associate attorney, becoming partner in 2006. Among her academic achievements, Ms. Mack received several American Jurisprudence Awards in law school and is a published writer.
Giving Back to Community
This altruistic spirit is also evident in Julie, who has volunteered at the YWCA legal clinic and Legal Aid during her years in law school where she gained valuable experience working with domestic violence victims. Mack combines her background in social work with her career as a family lawyer. “I have the best of both worlds here,” says Mack. “I get to work on a one-on-one basis with my clients, so I actually see my work pay off with tangible results.”
