I Am Focused On Your Future

I am attorney Julie A. Stephens of Stephens Law Firm, P.C. I am committed to helping my clients overcome whatever family law or estate and probate-related challenges they are facing. I understand how personal these matters can be. I know that it is difficult for most of us to bring others into matters that are so personal. I am honored when people choose me to help them face the legal difficulties they are facing. I repay my clients for the trust they place in me by dedicating myself to providing them with the exceptional representation they deserve.

Many lawyers focus on the cases before them rather than the lives of their clients. I know that I serve my clients best when I learn who they are and where the current situation they are in fits into the larger picture of their lives. Without that context, it is all too easy to accept a solution that may resolve the case while not doing anything to improve the person’s situation.



The team at Gittens & Associates is comprised of a highly skilled and knowledgeable group of professionals. Our vision is to put our clients first through excellence in customer service, client-lawyer relationships, and proven results.

No matter the type of legal counsel or representation you’re looking for, our team has the expertise to handle any case.

There are endless reasons you might need a lawyer: marriage disputes, a car accident, inheritance—the list can go on and on. You wouldn’t hire a divorce lawyer to handle a malpractice lawsuit, but if the lawyer has experience with both, it’s as if you’re getting two lawyers in one.

Divorce and family law are intensely personal areas of the law, and that’s why it’s important to select a divorce attorney who you feel confident and comfortable with. Legal issues in these areas often represent some of the most important transitions in life. Decisions made during divorce and family law cases can have lasting implications for years to come.
