I have been so blessed to meet Mrs. Julia, her team Laura, Ashley, Stephanie. I have been going through a difficult custody battle. I made some bad choices in life. It took me hitting rock bottom before I was ready to change and turn my life over to God. See God knew I needed an intelligent, caring, quick on her feet attorney, so he led me to her. I told her my story how I had been mentally and even some physical abuse by my son’s father. How I was a recovering addict and used to be an exotic dancer. I told her how God saved me with his grace and mercy. I was so scared of how she and her team would react to me and if they would look down on me. To my surprise they didn’t run me off with a pitchfork. Mrs. Julia and her team sat across from me with caring eyes and a sweet smile. Mrs. Julia told me not to be ashamed, my past doesn’t defy the person I am now. She gave me hope and encouragement to go fight my Goliath. If you’re up against your Goliath, then you should turn to God and throw your stone (my stone was Mrs. Julia) and defeat the giant. God gave me a second chance at being a mother and he used Mrs. Julia to help me. Mrs. Julia and her team are a part of my life now, each one of them has left their fingerprints on my life. They will always have a special place in my heart. With Mrs. Julia Best Chase and her team you don’t just hire an attorney, you find a friend. I pray that God blesses everyone that comes in contact with Mrs. Julia, one of Gods mighty warriors. I can’t put into words how blessed I am for all that you have done and all that you’re still doing. The only thing I know to do is pay it forward every chance I get. Thank You! Thank You! God Bless!

Thank you so much Julia , you are the BEST!!!
