About Julie

Learn Julie’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Family
    Divorce with or without children from start to finish (temporary orders, discovery, parenting evaluator, property valuation, mediation, settlement or trial). Parenting plans and child support for unmarried parents. Post-decree disputes over unpaid child support/spousal maintenance or reimbursements. Modifications. Relocations. Third party custody actions.

  2. Mediation
    Offering lower hourly rate mediator services for family law disputes ranging from parenting plan disputes to the entire case. Will serve as a mediator for pro se parties who do not have lawyers.

As a family law attorney, my job is to listen to you so I can turn your story into a strategy and solution.  My professional area of interest is representing people who are involved in high conflict parenting and financial disputes.  I know what to do and how to get a client through the process.  I am effective in settling cases and in court because I know the law and how to present the facts of my client's case.  A good client for me is one who wants a lawyer with my type of straighforward style.  My areas of practice include:



  • Parenting Plans
  • Child Support
  • Spousal  Maintenance
  • Property Division
  • Modifications
  • Parentage Actions
  • Relocations
  • Post-Decree Matters
  • Third Party Custody


I am expanding my practice to to serve as a mediator in low cost mediations for people without attorneys. It is better to settle your case than have a judge make decisions for you. I believe that my style allows people to be heard and work through the tough issues to get to those final orders.

Complicated Divorce
Hiring Julie Park as my attorney was one of the best decisions I made during one of the toughest times of my life. Julie's straightforward, no-nonsense approach kept me focused during a very complicated divorce, from parenting issues to complex financial issues as well. Julie is prompt at returning emails, calls, and was very thorough and efficient in every aspect of my case. She has a very sharp mind when it comes to finances, helping me wrap my head around things I was almost too overwhelmed to confront during such a difficult time. We ended up settling my case with an outcome I was very satisfied with. I'm grateful and couldn't recommend her enough!

Julie Park is an excellent attorney
I highly recommend Julie Park to anyone who is faced with a divorce. She is extremely smart and highly capable. In my situation, things were very emotionally charged and I struggled to maintain my composure while my family and assets were split apart. Julie's vast experience and deep understanding of the law provided the protections I needed to close this chapter of my life and move on.

If you want an EXCELLENT lawyer.....
I hired Julie to take on my case after my original attorney pulled out, because we found out who my opposing counsel would be. It was a blessing in disguise. The best thing that could have happened for me, was to come across Julie Park. Julie jumped immediately into action. She is very quick on her feet and knows exactly what she is doing and talking about. Julie has her own strategy of knowledge that made her expertise a winner for me. Listening to her suggestions will put everything into place in the end. Julie kept me informed, was always available when I needed her. She prepared everything keeping us on track. Julie is very professional. She is excellent in handling any obstacles, which came up many times. I thought this could be an amicable divorce; unfortunately, there were some unexpected obstacles that arose. Julie was very professional in those hard times and handled each situation with expertise and respect for all. Julie knows how to get results in a sound and ethical manner without jeopardizing the integrity of the profession. She is someone I would highly recommend to anyone who needs a strong, well educated, professional attorney who can handle the situation. Julie is also very understanding. Rating Julie from a 1 to 10, I rate her 100+

Excellent and professional
I hired Julie to take on my case after my original attorney suddenly passed away. I was about 6 months into the action and left with a pending court date and a potentially lost opportunity to positively resolve my action. Julie jumped immediately into action. She will drive you to help yourself if necessary and also save you some money, be prepared and listen to her. She will explain why, what and when very clearly. My situation was a bit unique. She pursued, at my request, a summary judgement which is not always easy or the normal proceeding but her knowledge and experience said this course was worth pursuing. It was very inspiring to watch her work and follow her knowledge of law. She really does listen to you and will advise you on how to proceed. She is Very good and Very knowledgeable at her profession. I cannot say enough about her ethics. Win or lose I knew I had one of the best in my corner. It is in your best interest to at the very least, interview her for representation of your particular situation. Hiring Julie was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Highly Recommend Julie Park
If you ever find yourself facing any legal family issues, I would highly recommend hiring Julie Park. No one ever wants to be a party to divorce, as it can be a very overwhelming experience. Julie is not only experienced in all aspects of family law but her calm demeanor helps to alleviate the stressful situation. I hired Julie for what was supposed to be an easy and amicable divorce; unfortunately there were some unexpected obstacles that arose. Julie not only handled each situation with expertise and respect for all parties but she also kept me informed of each phase of the process and made me aware of potential outcomes. Julie knows how to get results in a sound and ethical manner without jeopardizing the integrity of the profession. I also cannot stress enough how she makes herself available to her clients, whether it be email or telephone, I always knew that she would be prompt in responding to any and all of my concerns. I should also note that my ex had hired an attorney from a large swanky downtown Seattle law firm. This may have intimidated some solo practitioners but Julie was unfazed by opposing counsel and the end result was a fair and reasonable resolution.

Excellent Choice!
Julie is smart and does an excellent job for her clients. I have been consistently impressed by her ability to use her knowledge of the law and the court rules to best help her clients, and by her common sense, no nonsense approach to family law issues. She is willing to tackle the difficult problems, and does so with top notch legal skills.

You should hire Julie
I have never reviewed anyone online for anything - as I often find that these type of reviews are often generic, are unflinchingly glowing, or written by people who are angry they didn't get exactly what they wanted. That being said, I felt compelled to write a review for Julie as I cannot reccommend her more highly. She is extraordinarily knowledgeable, ethical, efficient, realistic, and responsive. She was particulary helpful in responding in a measured, yet appropriate manner, when my ex's counsel was particularly aggressive during the mediation process. I think many attorneys could have used this as an opportunity to respond agressively- ultimately resulting in many more billed hours, but her/our response was very direct, unflinching and no-nonsense. Ultimately this was the breakthrough in my divorce that led to a fair and reasonable (and suprisingly amicable) settlement that avoided a great deal of stress, additional money spent, and ultimately allowed for a much better relationship as co-parents moving toward the future. If you need someone with a huge office in a high-rise building (and the hourly rate to go with it), Julie may not be for you. If you are looking for someone who truly knows what she is doing, has the respect of her peers, and will communicate with you at every turn in this very stressful process- you really should talk with Julie.

Posted by Marcia, A Divorce Client | March 25, 2011
I would strongly recommend Julie S. Park for anybody who has the misfortune of experiencing the ordeal of divorce, or for anybody who finds themselves considering a divorce. Julie was my lawyer throughout my divorce. Her knowledge of Family Law was exceptional. My divorce included many details that are normally not a part of a divorce case, however Julie was knowledgeable and could assist me. The best interest of my children was always considered. She was very responsive to my communications, she kept me informed with what was going on in my case, she would always ask how I felt about the direction we were going to take as we proceeded. She always explained the risks and uncertainties. Her paperwork was complete, well-organized. I always felt very comfortable and at peace throughout the entire process.

Excellent strategist - informed, responsive, professional, connected and affordable
I would strongly recommend Julie Park for anybody who is considering divorce, or for anybody who finds themselves unexpectedly in a divorce. I wish I had Julie for my lawyer all throughout my divorce, the way she tidied up the mess left by previous incompetents was very impressive (yes, I sued the previous lawyer and won for malpractice, but it was still awful). Throughout the time she was my lawyer, she was very responsive to my communications, she kept me very informed with what was going on in my case, she let me help as much (or as little) as I wanted to, and she was very good about describing where the risks and uncertainties were all along the route. Her paperwork was complete, well-organized, and extremely well-written. Julie really knows what she's doing. What I liked most about Julie is that she knew when to dig in and fight at all costs, and when to let things go. She's not a lapdog or a bulldog, but she can shift gears and play either role, depending on which will work best for my end results. I felt very comfortable trusting her.

Knows what she is doing!
The difference here is that she doesn't just know the law, she "gets" it--she understands what you are going through, what you are dealing with, and what you are trying to accomplish. That is priceless. Oh, and she answers her phone and email right away (also priceless)!

Professional and efficient!!!
Julie Park literally came to my rescue. My original attorney refused to deal with my ex's attorney ever again, and the next attorney quit as well. I was faced with a lawsuit over mistakes made by the ex's attorney, but that did not stop Julie. She got me through a very difficult time. She guided me right through it, knowing it would not be easy . Julie knows what to do and does it well!!

Family Attorney | Apr 12
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Julie is whip smart and well-prepared. I first met Julie as she presented family law content in a seminar for lawyers who practice in different areas of law. It was clear that she was compassionate, knowledgeable, and creative in solving the unique and complex problems that arise in the family law context. Since that day, I have referred many clients to Julie for assistance in family law matters. This area of practice is fraught with stress, conflict, and high emotion. She maneuvers clients through with grace and skill and manages to be both comforting and straightforward. I have consistently received strong reviews from those who have used Julie for family law matters, and I always look forward to collaborating with her when our areas of practice intersect. You can't go wrong in hiring Julie."
