Great Divorce mediation Process!
Julie and her team were most pleasant to work with. Her process of getting the parties to agreement and all the documentation completed was most supportive. She completed our Divorce in a very timely manner and the cost was very reasonable. She prioritized our children in the process and gave us all the tools we needed to get through the process. I would advise anyone going into divorce to at least get a consult with Julie before going full into any other process.

Creating a Coherent Co-Hab
We fully appreciated Julie's support in creating our co-habitation agreement. Ironically, we both had worked with Julie to finalize our divorces from our former spouses, and it was an easy decision to ask her to help us with our documents, moving forward in our new relationship. Julie is incredibly smart, thoughtful, and thorough. She asked fantastic probing questions which made us think carefully about many components of our co-hab: supporting children, navigating former spouses, distributing property, and combining finances. She led us through a series of "what-if" questions and scenarios that helped us understand the ramifications of our agreement. She was clear, direct, and kind and promptly sent us several drafts to consider. Julie uses a fantastic combination of heart and head smarts to support her clients and we would recommend her work for a variety of circumstances.

Excellent communicator
I was bringing an end to a 31 year marriage. Julie almost immediately recognized that my ex-husband and I had different communication styles, and so she communicated with each of us in the way that we could best relate. He is the analytical one and I am the emotional. She nailed it, giving each of us confidence. She was both knowledgeable and reassuring. I am grateful for her guidance and highly recommend her in the difficult process of ending a marriage

A Great Mediator
Divorce is anxiety, sadness and frustration. It can feel as if everyone is against you. As a man, even thinking about going to a female divorce mediator wasn’t the plan. But I had information that Julie would be professional, skilled, non-judgmental and fair. My experience with her was confirmed 110%. Her demeanor toward both of us made the difficult process far easier, less stressful and extremely efficient. Thank you, Julie.
