Julie is a commercial litigator, pursuing and defending primarily contract-based claims on behalf of her clients in the construction, real estate, health care, and financial services industries. While she enjoys all aspects of litigation, Julie appreciates the assessment and negotiation process the most, where she evaluates the precise contract language, analyzes the applicable law, and applies both to the facts to assess her client’s claims or defenses. This meaningful process utilized at the beginning of the engagement and throughout the case has saved clients precious time and resources, and provides a unique learning opportunity for future contracts.
Julie routinely represents owners, general contractors, subcontractors and suppliers in construction claim disputes, often involving bonds and lien enforcement. She handles all aspects of asset recovery for financial institutions, including foreclosures, claim and delivery, receiverships, and deficiency actions and post-judgment special proceedings. In this capacity, she commonly defends lender liability counterclaims. Julie is also experienced in handling quiet title actions for lenders and title insurance companies, as well as commercial lease disputes and transactional negotiations for landlords and property managers.
Within the health care industry, Julie represents health care professionals before occupational licensing boards. She also works with hospice and long-term care clients, advising them on specific contract and regulatory issues.
Julie serves on the firm’s Summer Clerk Committee and Associates Committee, and is committed to mentoring new hires and challenging her colleagues to maintain a dynamic workplace.
