Julie M. Sheldon
Julie M. Sheldon is an associate attorney at Alter, Wolff & Foley LLP. Julie’s practice includes all areas of family and matrimonial law including divorce, property distribution, child custody, parenting time, spousal support, child support, and prenuptial agreements. Julie has extensive experience litigating complex financial matters, including those involving business interests, real estate holdings, professional practices, vested and unvested stock options, and family or inherited wealth.
Julie appreciates that, in some cases, settling out of court can be the best course of action, and she helps her clients amicably resolve their matters when possible. When a tough legal battle is required, Julie is equally as capable and zealously advocates for her clients before trial and appellate courts.
Julie provides solution-oriented, compassionate counsel. She works with her clients to understand their particular legal, financial, and emotional goals. She takes care to thoroughly explain the divorce process and various strategy options to her clients, and to answer all of their questions.
