When Life Gets Legal SM


Julie A. Dialessi-Lafley

  • Shareholder

"There are many practitioners in the legal industry, and I know as a member of the legal profession, the best way in which I can differentiate myself from my peers is through the high quality of my representation and the level of service which I offer to my clients. My philosophy is that I am here for my clients and it should not be the other way around. I strive to service my clients in the most professional and efficient manner from both a time and cost perspective, while ultimately achieving the desired end result. A successful attorney/client relationship is one of trust, hard work, communication, service and accomplishment. By establishing long term relationships with my clients, I am able to give back to each individual."
