Whether it is streamlining his practice to offer the lowest possible rates or going out of the office to meet you at a convenient location, the client is always his focus.

Julian's practice encompasses almost every area of law: small business, wills and estates, employment, personal injury, guardianship, power of attorney, and criminal law, Julian can help you find a solution to your legal matter -- and he will make sure it gets done for a reasonable fee.
