Background

Ms. Julian is a partner in the firm’s Family Law and Commercial Litigation groups and serves as Chair of the Family Law Group. Her family law practice serves clients in a wide range of matters including divorce, equitable distribution, alimony, child support, and child custody. In addition to her diverse family law background, Ms. Julian has significant experience in complex commercial litigation matters, including those concerning limited liability company member disputes, limited partnership disputes, shareholder oppression and related conflicts.She is also a qualified NJ Ct. R. 1:40-12 family law mediator able to assist clients in resolving their differences through mediation, a more amicable alternative to litigation.

In addition to traditional matrimonial issues, Ms. Julian often assists clients to navigate the impact of divorce upon closely owned businesses. She frequently handles matters involving dissolution of commercial entities, buy-outs, and the challenges of planning to operate a family business post-divorce. These cases can require business valuations, assessment of true cash flow and income, and sometimes even negotiation of employment terms for former spouses once a divorce is final.
