Client Reviews
K. L. April 2, 2024
Miracle Worker Julie took on a very complicated case when I hired her. I thought my case was daunting but she took it head on like a challenge. After I spent 3 months fighting CWS on my own during which I was given conflicting information, ignored, treated like a criminal, and told there was nothing to be done despite my proactive attempts to clear my name and do whatever they wanted for me to prove my kids were my topmost priority. Enter Julie, and this amazing woman accomplished within weeks what I had failed to do for months. And so very much more. She was able to have the finding changed despite having the deck stacked against us.

Biography

I began my legal career as a juvenile dependency attorney.
I spent nearly five years working full-time for dependency parents and children. That experience taught me how to be a strong and compassionate advocate, both in the courtroom and out.

When Child Protective Services are involved, it is crucial to have a skilled dependency attorney working for you. The same goes for a family law case where you finances and valuable time with your children are at risk.

Whether it's a juvenile dependency case or a family law matter, you deserve the time and attention necessary to ease your fears about the process and guide you to a successful resolution.

If you hire me, you will receive the special attention you deserve.
