“I had asked a friend for the name of the attorney that he had used during his divorce and was given the name Jared Julian; the single best referral I have ever received. He and his associate Lindsey Wilson were guiding, counseling, and advising me every step of the way. The entire staff all showed genuine care and understanding for what I was going through. It sounds odd to say, but theirs is the best service I have ever received, that I hope I never need again. I hope that no one ever has to go through a painful divorce. But if you do, you will not find a better advocate than JulianJohnson, P.C.” -C.P.

“Mr. Julian and his staff did a wonderful job representing myself and my child. He is an exceptional lawyer, and a great man. His staff was very well put together and helped us in every way possible. His excellence in his field and integrity is commendable!” -M.B.

“I would highly recommend Jared Julian! My positive experience started with my initial meeting with Jennifer Cline. She was professional, experienced and guided me through the process with care and understanding. Jared’s knowledge and experience was truly remarkable and I felt he always had my best interest in mind with every step of the process. Divorce is one of the most stressful things a person can go through, and Jared and Jennifer partnered, counseled and guided me through the process with care, authenticity, and urgency. I knew I could depend on them with 100% confidence and they were the best for my case. Thank you, Jared and Jennifer, for all you did and provided for my case!” -M.P.

“Mr. Julian is an experienced attorney that listens to his clients. I could not have been happier with him as my attorney. He went above and beyond, and I came to trust him and rely on him for his expertise and judgement throughout my legal proceedings.Jared and his team were very responsive to my calls and he was excellent in walking me through each scenario step by step without overwhelming me.Despite being in some potentially challenging positions, his advice was always sound, unbiased and in my best interests. I was continually impressed by his responsiveness, helpful insights and follow-through on questions I had and issues that arose throughout the proceedings.” -C.B.

“We were referred to Jared Julian by a friend in 2013. We live in Arkansas and had a custody case come up that involved Dallas Court. We called Julian immediately from our car and told him our situation and it was a very complicated one, at least to us. Julian trusted me on the phone without meeting me. We also felt very confident with him immediately. We met at his office a couple days later. You could feel Julian’s genuine concern, it was not just a court case to him. He was going to do everything possible to help us. Julian was so professional throughout this long case, over 3 years. He is the best in his field. He always kept us updated and was always available for consult. His staff was awesome, especially Jennifer, she always knew how to keep us calm and reassure us that it was going to be ok. They worked long hours to see a little boy was safe and secure. My husband and I cannot find words to express our respect for Julian. We were so blessed and thankful the day God led us to Mr. Julian and his staff. We still stay in contact with Julian and staff and always will. He is one guy to have on your side.” -R.C.

“Best law firm team I ever have had was Jared Julian’s. He is the best attorney that I would highly recommend!! To anyone He spent a lot of time on my case, and kept me informed of all new events, even though he had other cases to work on at the same time. Very ethical He was great at keeping me focused on the end result and helped me put things into perspective. He was friendly and calm even when I was not. He fought hard for me and my family in court and was my voice during a very stressful time in our lives God bless all of you guys make the best law firm team I could ever ask for.” -A.S.

“In 2010, I filed for divorce from my wife of 18 years. This was an extremely contentious and painful saga that lasted two and a half years. I knew we were headed for a custody trial, so I needed the best litigator that I could find. Julian was certainly that. I am fortunate that a friend referred me to him. I, a father, was awarded custody and was named the sole managing conservator of my two children after a three and a half day jury trial. This is nearly unheard of. My, now ex-wife had made choices that put my children in imminent danger. The legal battle continued for another year and a half or so, with Julian advocating for me every step of the way. We were even awarded attorney’s fees a few times at various hearings. Today, my kids live with me full time and they are safe. Julian kept me focused on the important things throughout the process and worked tirelessly to ensure the children were protected. It is a crazy emotional time and it is very easy to get distracted by the emotions and heartache. Julian’s knowledge of the law enabled us to get a very favorable final order. Things do get better after divorce, but while you are going through it you need the best legal representation you can get. Julian is not focused on how many hours he can bill you. Instead, he’s focused on doing what is best for you and your family. I recommend Julian and have sent many friends to him.” -C.L.
