Welcome to the Karen Julian Law website. I have designed this site to provide you with an overview of my new law office and the focused legal services I provide in the areas of family law, end-of-life planning and residential real estate.
After practicing family law for over 33 years, primarily in the traditional litigation model, I have concluded that there is a better way. Many people going through a separation or divorce are afraid of the legal system, and they hesitate to retain an attorney. They fear the cost, and they fear that attorneys will increase the conflict between them and their partners. They want to be fair to their partners, and if they have children, they want to be able to raise their children together.
I have come to believe that it is best for parties and their families if they can work out their family law issues directly with each other, with the support and assistance of appropriate professionals. I am both a registered nurse and an attorney, and I have had substantial training and experience in both mediation and the collaborative law models. I wish to focus my practice in these models for my family law clients. I also enjoy helping clients make their end-of-life health care and financial decisions, and preparing the necessary documents for them.
I hope you find the site interesting and informative. Please do not hesitate to call me if you have any questions or concerns.
