Julie Dialessi-Lafley

"My philosophy is that I am here for my clients and it should not be the other way around. A successful attorney/client relationship is one of trust, hard work, communication, service and accomplishment. By establishing long term relationships with my clients and with the community through civic involvement, I am able to give back to each individual and the community as a whole."
