Client Comments

Dissolution of Marriage with Children, Modification of Timesharing, Alimony, and Child Support

Honest, Professional and Caring. I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you, Ms. Julia! After your office took over my case, I began to feel secure and confident, for the first time. I truly appreciate all the help, support, and guidance, I received from you, Stephanie, and all of your staff members who helped me reach the finish line. I am so relieved after 7 years of expensive and brutal litigation, my case is finally over. For the first 5 years, I had different attorneys representing my case and I lost a lot during that time. It wasn’t until after you took over my case, that I was able to protect the most important aspects of my life, my son, and the finances that I have to start a new journey. Your experience and advice are exceptional! I cannot thank you enough for your wonderful support and help!

Dissolution of Marriage, Alimony, Criminal Contempt

Compassionate, Caring and an Angel. Julia is literally a Godsend– I was at my breaking point facing criminal contempt charges on a short-term (7 year) no children divorce proceedings — 6 years of depositions and 19 Request for Production of Documents (no privacy ever- had to provide my credit card and bank statements every 4 months) I was beaten down and severely depressed not to mention the financial stress of 6 years of contentious divorce hearings and two trials and an appeal later– Julia came into my life to defend me on the Criminal Contempt charges- yes, I was facing 6 months- to 1 year in jail for not being able to make money during COVID and pay the Temp Support Order which had not been in place for 6 years.. What is Temporary about that? I was very frustrated and lacked confidence in the legal process, courts and lawyers when Julia asked me to trust her. This was easier said than done as I had heard those same words from four (4) previous attorneys who all made my case worse– not better. Julia held my hand and allowed me to cry and be frustrated while continuing to move forward cleaning up the mess that was created by previous counsel and a court system that was not caught up to dealing with a Pandemic. 14 months after meeting Julia– she had cleaned up the mess and officially ended the 6 plus years and Malicious prosecution from my Ex-Wife’s attorney who only saw Dollars in his eyes when he saw me. I have the luxury now of looking back in hindsight and ask myself often how much different the last 6 years would have been had I known and hired Julia from the start? Don’t make the mistake I made – use this review as a “teachable moment” and take advantage of the hundreds of thousands of dollars that could have gone to my retirement instead of opposing counsel’s pocket.

Post-Dissolution Matter – Modification of Alimony

Light at the End of the Tunnel. Julia Best Chase came highly recommended by a family friend. I feel very fortunate to have found an attorney with integrity, genuine concern for my case, and knowledge of family law. Mine was an alimony case which my ex-wife was awarded permanent, life-time, alimony. When her circumstances changed, to her good, we found she was no longer in need of the support. The matter was resolved in mediation through Ms. Chase’s tenacious, professional persistence. We came to an agreement we both could live with and didn’t have to proceed to court. Ms. Chase surpassed my expectations. I was very happy with the outcome and I appreciate the hours Ms. Chase, and her team, worked to get me to this place. I would recommend Julia to anyone in need of great representation!
