Probate and Property Deed Clean-up
Julia is an extraordinary Attorney. I went through 3 other attorneys trying to clear up a deed and finally needed a probate attorney. Julia was the best thing that has happened to me regarding my property issues. She whizzed through the probate and was able to assist in clearing up the deed for my property. She is extremely knowledgeable, she listens carefully and simplifies the process and communicates the issues carefully and in an uncomplicated manner. Julia responds to any questions and problems extremely quickly and just get things done. I couldn't imagine any attorney doing a better job and would recommend Julia as one of the best, the very best in her field of expertise.

Estate Planning and Trust
Julia was able to clearly explain the value of a trust in estate planning, and how it would apply to my situation. Based on the consultation, it was clear that it made good sense. So, I hired Julia, and I now feel confident that my estate wishes will be realized.
