She focuses her legal practice on domestic issues including separation and divorce, complex custody suits, child support and alimony, modifications to existing agreements, property distribution and valuations, contempt and enforcement, and pre- and post-nuptial and separation agreements.
Julie is driven to ensure her clients maintain the steadfast belief that she is their advocate and champion. To that end, she envisions each client as a partner, listening to their needs, communicating regularly, and advising them every step of the way as she works to help them achieve their goals. Julie brings a calm and soothing demeanor to what is often a frenzy in the setting of a family or marital dispute. A strategic problem-solver, Julie enjoys figuring out creative solutions to concerns involving financial and asset protection so that her clients remain in secure standing.
Julie is especially passionate about shielding children from the inevitably disruptive features of divorce and resolving custody battles in a child-focused manner. Julie is trained to represent minor children in the courts.
