Get to Know Julie

Julie completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Development and Family Studies at Colorado State University.  She earned her law degree from the University of Wyoming.  Julie repeatedly attained honor roll status and was recognized with an Excellence in Advocacy award at graduation.  Following law school, she clerked for the Honorable Clarence A. Brimmer, United States District Court Judge for the District of Wyoming.  Although Julie was offered a position as associate attorney at a prestigious corporate law firm in Denver, she instead chose to pursue her passion in working to improve the lives of children and families.  Julie is a member of the Colorado Bar Association and the Heart of the Rockies Bar Association.  She has been a licensed attorney in Colorado for more than 8 years.  Every year she attends legal conferences and seminars which focus on the needs of children and families in the State of Colorado.  Much of her caseload is devoted to representing children and parents in Dependency and Neglect cases.  Julie is a certified mediator and also volunteers with the San Luis Valley legal services clinic.  She accepts cases in the 11th and 12th Judicial Districts, to include Chaffee County, Fremont County, Park County, Alamosa County, Saguache County and Conejos County.

In her free time, Julie enjoys spending time with her husband and their beloved rescue animals.  She loves to ski, hike, camp, and kayak.
