Ms. Coons earned her undergraduate degrees from the University of Oregon in 1998 and 1999 in biology, chemisty, French, Spanish, German, and Psychology.  In 2002, she received her law degree from the University of Oregon.  She spent a year working as a cell biology research assistant, and then left that employment to prepare for the Oregon bar examination.  She spent the first four years of her career practicing with her father, Allan H. Coons, a well-regarded Oregon workers' compensation attorney, and also working for Martin J. McKeown.  Upon Mr. Coons' retirement in 2008, Ms. Coons continued their practice on her own, continuing to represent workers' compensation and social security disability claimants throughout western Oregon. 

In her off-work hours, Ms. Coons enjoys spending time with her two daughters and husband, reading, sewing, watching movies, taking long walks (she completed the Portland Marathon in 2010, and has participated in and completed numerous half marathons since 2007), rollerblading, dancing, looking for things to photograph, and listening to music.

excellent attorney
I hired Juliana to help me with my SAIF claim. I injured by back, and SAIF accepted a strain. I had a lot more problems than that, and she got my other conditions accepted. She and her staff worked tirelessly on my case, answered my questions, and explained how the system works to me. Thanks to their work, I got a good permanent disability award and I am being retrained. At the end, I could not believe they had done all that work and because of the law, not get paid. In spite of that, Juliana and her whole staff were kind and gracious and treated me with respect at all times. If I ever need a lawyer again, she's the first call I'm going to make.

thank you!
When Juliana took my case, I felt believed and I didn't feel so alone. She stood up for me - what a great gift - and we won my case.

very good lawyer
She was responsive and caring, very polite, and even when she didn't have an exact answer to a question, she kept me informed and explained why she couldn't give an exact answer.
