Beyond the Law
Beyond the Law
A South Carolina native, Julie moved to Richmond for law school and decided to never leave. Julie is a lover of crossword puzzles, reading, and cooking fun dinners (always with a glass of Grenache in hand). In her free time, she can be found at the park with her husband Mitchell and toddler daughter Nora or frequenting Richmond’s amazing restaurant scene with friends. A fun fact about Julie is that she attended an all-girls school for college.
