About me

For Julia, children are the foundation, not just of the family
structure, but of her approach to family law.  Julia’s experience as
court-appointed counsel for children in juvenile dependency and
domestic relations cases guides her.  She knows the importance of
stability and consistency in a child’s life.  Julia’s strength as a
lawyer is in developing creative solutions for these children and their
extended families.


As a family law attorney, Julia is committed to assisting families
in restructuring their lives financially, while keeping parents
positively focused on the needs of children. When both goals are met,
Julia knows that families can move forward in a healthy way.


Julia sees her relationship with clients as a partnership, one
where she assists them in defining their goals, developing options and
rebuilding a foundation and structure for their families.
