Julie is often asked how she decided to become an estate planning lawyer. The answers are people: Gardy Ray and Diane Wilcox.
Just weeks after her law school graduation, Julie's stepdad died unexpectedly. He had a will, so probate was simple, and the family was able to just grieve. Julie's mom, stricken with a terminal cancer diagnosis, wanted to talk about health care decisions and end-of-life care. Julie guided her through those conversations and served as her health care agent. After her mom died, Julie followed her mom's funeral and burial wishes and helped her brother through probate.
Estate planning isn't just about wills or money or obligations to Julie; it's about having important conversations with the most important people in your life.
