Julie W. Olmsted has been practicing estate planning for nearly a decade. She deals in death because this area deeply affects families and allows Julie to have meaningful conversations, and develop real relationships, with her clients.  

When she's not busy lawyering, Julie enjoys photography, baking, hiking, and the Minnesota State Fair. Julie was proudly born and raised in Minnesota and currently lives in Richfield with her husband, Brian, their son, Arlo, and their animal menagerie.
