Join Julie and Lanique on March 17, 2021, from 4 pm to 6 pm to learn the best tips and tricks to find and land your first job as a family lawyer.
Julie focuses her practice on family law matters including divorce, child custody, support, asset division, prenuptial agreements, and international custody. Julie also has experience in mediation and collaborative law. Julie’s practice approach is to provide clear, open communication with her clients regarding expectations and outcomes. She helps her clients sort out the legal aspects of a case from the emotions that are invariably involved so they are able to make the best decisions for themselves and their families. When necessary, Julie will fight on behalf of her clients to achieve the best possible legal outcome in court.
