Julia M. Garwood • Certified Family Law Specialist

Testimonials the Family Court hearing on November 9, 2009, Julia brilliantly argued my case before the Judge in such a convincing manner that we received a favorable ruling beyond our expectations. Subsequently, she negotiated a settlement to the case that met my goals. I have been very pleased with the Law Offices of Julia Garwood. You really made a difference in the quality of life for me and my children.

Julia, I just wanted to take a second to thank you and your office staff for putting up with me through this incredibly difficult time. I really loved my wife and the depth of hurt went beyond what I showed. [...] Please tell your staff for me that I greatly appreciate all that they did and though not communicated by me personally, my gratitude is heartfelt. What you and I do as lawyers is emotionally divergent, but my respect and admiration for you and your office deep. Thank you.

I am writing to express my sincere thanks and gratitude to you and your incredible staff for your guidance and support during the most difficult time in my life, my divorce and child custody dispute. Your thorough knowledge of family law in addition to the time you, and your staff, takes to explain what to expect during each step of the process relieves so much stress and puts me at ease. Since this began, I have felt extremely comfortable discussing any issues that arise, knowing that all my concerns and questions are addressed quickly and with a personal touch. Feeling completely prepared as we go through each step, from mediation to completing Declarations, is just one of the many ways your firm makes the process easier. The ability you have to anticipate the opposition’s next move is uncanny, consistently keeping us several steps ahead. Additionally, I am immensely impressed by the quality and timely documents that are produced by your office. I have always felt that you are reasonable and attempt to work things out with opposing counsel in an effort to settle matters out of the courtroom, which is always my first choice. However, when we do have to go to court I could not be happier that you are in my corner. For me, being a client means knowing that I am not in this alone. I am backed by your firm’s extensive knowledge, guidance and support, ensuring the best possible outcome. I feel that you and your staff truly care about me and my daughter and our well-being. Thank you, once again, for everything that you, Rebekah and Andrella have done for me and my daughter. I am eternally grateful.

Your valuable efforts on Wednesday mornings have assured that the litigants of East County have their matters promptly and fairly resolved with aid of an experienced mediator. The service you have provided to the judicial officers is invaluable as well. We could not function efficiently without your help.

I simply cannot state strongly enough what a valuable resource Ms. Garwood is. Her character and integrity are above reproach. Her knowledge of family law is vast and complete. Her empathy and compassion when working with parties and attorneys within the settlement arena, coupled with a sense of fairness and balance, have enabled her to settle almost all cases that she has worked on.
