Julia M. Hagan

For Julia, children are the foundation, not just of the family structure, but of her approach to family law. Grounded in a positive family life, she knows the importance of stability and consistency for children. Julia's prior experience in juvenile court and in criminal cases gives her insight in approaching difficult family matters. She is creative in crafting solutions for families so they can move forward in a healthy way.

As a family law attorney, Julia is also committed to assisting families in restructuring their lives financially. Julia sees her relationship with clients as a partnership, one where she assists them in defining their goals and developing their options. She is tenacious in advocating for their interests and protecting clients financially.

Julia loves living in the Pacific Northwest, hiking, and traveling with family.
