My clients are great people to work with. I am so gratified that I can make a positive difference in my clients' lives. I am commited to the best outcome for each person and I often find that I can even help with non-bankruptcy aspects of financial problems that the person did not know could be improved.
Bankruptcy: I know from talking with my clients over the years that stress is the number one reason why someone finally makes the call to see a bankruptcy attorney. My goal is to lessen that stress at your first appointment by explaining the debt relief for which you are eligible. The sooner you have your appointment the sooner you will feel more in control of your life and future.
Landlords: Regarding my landlord/tenant work, I represent landlords only, so that the property owner's rights are protected and rental management is made less stressful.
Fees: My fees are very competitive and you can always count on meeting with me, not a paralegal or secretary or lesser experienced associate.
Call me for a free, no obligation appointment. If your work hours are an issue, after 5pm and weekend appointments can be scheduled. I look forward to talking with you.

Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
I endorse this lawyer. Julie is a thoughtful and careful attorney who knows her stuff and how to handle cases. From the perspective of opposing counsel, my experience has been that she knows what needs doing, and keeps her word. Cases that could become highly conflicted - don't. I'm happy to have her cases come in because I know that if an agreed resolution is possible, we'll get there. Elizabeth Powell
