In 1995, Julia graduated from the University of Colorado Law School and became licensed in Colorado. Prior to attending law school, Julia worked in marketing for both for profit and non-profit ventures. Her work focused on branding, product development and product management, all of which peaked her interest in brand protection, contracting and business systems. After law school, Julia was fortunate to begin her practice as an attorney with a local boutique law firm that provided both civil litigation and commercial transactional services to its clients. Through that experience, Julia learned about how and why certain business deals work and certain deals fail.

Now, with literally decades of experience advising for small, closely held businesses, Julia has assisted hundreds of companies through their formative processes and through the myriad issues that arise as businesses develop over time. Many of those same clients have achieved their targeted success and have since worked with Julia to sell their businesses or develop strategic plans to transition company ownership to employees and family members. 

After practicing for many years on Pearl Street in Boulder, Julia’s office is now located in downtown Louisville, Colorado, with easy access to clients in Boulder and all over the Front Range.  Julia has had the pleasure of living in Louisville since 1992 and currently resides there with her family.

Q: If you could offer one piece of advice to someone starting a business, what would it be?

Julia: High quality, targeted, practical legal advice early in the process of starting your business makes all the difference.  It will save you time, money and stress, and it will also set the stage for you to get the best possible return for your effort.  Great legal advice and a relationship with an attorney you trust is just as important as buying insurance or any of the other things you do to make sure you and your business are protected and positioned for success.

Q: What do you love most about helping small businesses?

Julia: Small business advising is a place that I can have a concrete, positive impact directly on people’s lives.  I also happen to love entrepreneurs.  It takes a special kind of courage to start a company, and my passion is helping people see that courage through.
