Julie B. Christopher
To achieve the best possible results for her family law clients, Julie Christopher works closely with them using a measured approach tailored to their needs and goals. Julie is sensitive to the devastating impact that separation and divorce has on the family unit. In a time of high emotions she strives to calm tensions. Julie helps her clients identify reasonable goals, and work towards those goals through negotiation and mediation. When necessary, Julie is always prepared to defend those goals in court.
Julie concentrates her practice in the areas of domestic relations, including complex custody actions, child support and alimony, modification actions, property distribution and valuations, contempt and enforcement, pre- and post-nuptial agreements, separation agreements and guardianship actions. She has successfully litigated a broad range of family law issues and regularly appears in the Circuit Court of Maryland. Julie has negotiated complicated and creative property settlement agreements. Julie also serves a court appointed child privilege and best interests attorney, representing the interests of minor children.
Before joining the firm, Julie practiced law for five years in Baltimore, Maryland. Prior to that, she was a judicial clerk for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Maryland, Baltimore Division, and the Circuit Court for Anne Arundel County, Maryland.
As an active member of the Bar Association of Montgomery County, Julie has served in numerous leadership positions, including Family Law Section Co-Chair and Program Chair. Aside from participating in the Family Law Section, she is also collaboratively trained and a member of the Collaborative Law Section. In 2012, the Bar Association of Montgomery County presented her with the Section Chair of the Year award. Bethesda Magazine named Julie as a honorable mention in the 2013 edition of "Top Divorce Lawyers" in the area.
