Whatever Family Law Challenges They are Facing
Julie is a local girl born in Hammond, Indiana, raised in Highland and settled in St. John. After graduating high school in 1998, she attended Ball State University. In 1992, she graduated cum laude with a B.S. degree in Psychological Science. After college, she earned a Master’s degree in Psychology from Valparaiso University. Before attending law school, Julie worked as the Director of the Sexual Assault Recovery Unit for the Porter County Prosecutor’s Office.
After working with attorneys in the Prosecutor’s Office, Julie decided to enroll at John Marshall Law School in Chicago. Not ever shying away from taking on something at full task, she contemporaneously started her family of two children. After she graduated in 1998 from law school while holding the hand of her toddler girl and pushing a stroller of her 5 month old son, she worked her way to partnership at a local law firm. After fifteen years of working in a firm, she has moved forward to own her own law practice in 2013.
Julie is licensed to practice in the State of Indiana, the Northern and Southern District of Indiana and the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. Julie is also active in the Women’s Lawyer Association of Lake County. Julie enjoys participating in her community as a frequent speaker at local middle schools on Law Day, acting as a legal liaison for Scott Middle School in Hammond, Indiana helping teenage children learn skills of mediation during times of conflict.
