Julie began her love of law and helping clients while working as a paralegal in Denver. Instead of attending the University of Denver Law School, she changed course and married a British husband, moving to England and qualifying as a lawyer there. She spend years honing the skill of immigration case preparation, and was a fierce advocate for clients at interviews, in front of judges and at tribunals hearings regarding asylum and human rights cases. Julie represented clients from all over the world, but mainly worked with Indian and Pakistani clients, as well as assisting clients in the Kosovar Albanian crisis which created a surge of immigration to London in the early 2000s. Julie moved to Monte Sereno, California in 2004 and worked as a City Council Member in 2013, fighting for multi family housing. In 2016, Julie felt compelled to return to immigration law. She seeks to mitigate the plight of immigrants, especially those from Latin America, as she lived and worked In Venezuela. She brings compassion and understanding to her interactions with clients and the struggles they face. Her aim is to be as thorough and proficient as possible to ensure each client's success.
