Julia graduated from the University of Colorado Law School in 1995 and became licensed in Colorado that same year. Prior to attending law school, Julia worked in marketing, which peaked her interest in brand protection, contracting and business systems. After law school, Julia began her practice as an associate with a Boulder law firm that provided both civil litigation and commercial transactional advising and services to its clients. Through that experience, Julia learned about what creates a solid business transaction and why certain deals fall apart. That knowledge informs her ongoing practice every day.
Julia made the choice to go solo in 2000 and has never looked back. In the last 20 plus years of combined solo and law firm practice, Julia has provided formation services to literally hundreds of ventures. As ongoing general counsel for many of those same companies, she has assisted clients in planning for the myriad challenges that can arise as a business develops, grows over time and transitions to either wind down or sale. She also helps clients plan for the unexpected by working with them to thoughtfully and intentionally address the risks created by the death or disability of a business’s owners.
Regardless of the stage of your business, Julia’s goal is to help you have peace of mind so you can focus on the work you want to do and not on the worry created by legal issues or lack of effective planning for the unexpected. After all, that’s why you became an entrepreneur.
