About Attorney Julie Phebus

Julie is an experienced trial attorney that is comfortable advocating for her clients in the courtroom. Prior to moving into a family law practice, Julie worked for nearly ten years as an insurance defense attorney. She tried numerous jury trials to a successful verdict.

Though Julie enjoyed being in the courtroom, she knew she wanted to move into a practice where she could work more closely with clients and assist them during difficult and trying times in their lives.

Family law is a perfect fit for Julie because she can use her tremendous advocacy skills and courtroom ease to advocate for individuals and families going through transition and crisis.

Not only is she comfortable in the courtroom, Julie is also a skilled negotiator, who enjoys working with other people to try to resolve cases without having to go to trial.

Julie's goal in her family law practice is to always be her clients' voice and do what she can to alleviate any fear, worry, and uncertainty her clients may have regarding the legal issue or proceeding they are facing.

Julie graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from the University of Iowa in 2001 and obtained her law degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2005. While in law school, Julie interned for a Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice. Julie has been a SuperLawyer Rising Star since 2012 .

Julie was born and raised in the Milwaukee area. She lives with her husband and Cockapoo dog, Indiana. In her free time, Julie enjoys traveling, hiking with her dog in Wisconsin's beautiful state parks, and spending time with her family and friends.
