Julie Cotant specializes in business and commercial litigation, probate administration and litigation, and estate planning. Julie enjoys helping clients through difficult times and advising them on the “big picture.” “Legal problems never happen in a vacuum. The best solution considers the client’s circumstances beyond the immediate legal issue.”

Julie has been with the firm since 2008 and can’t think of a better place to practice law. When she is not working with her clients, Julie is most likely outside goofing around with her husband and three kids. She loves her family, Michigan football, self-improvement, good food, and spending time with friends.

"The best part of my practice is establishing strong relationships with clients. Earning a client’s trust and loyalty is the highest compliment."
