Julie is a Solicitor and member of Resolution, who deals with every aspect of family law practice, together with wills, trusts and probate matters.
Julie is friendly, approachable and explains complex issues clearly. She has an understanding of how traumatic and emotional relationship breakdown can be, and offers a sympathetic approach.
Julie represents local individuals and business owners, and has helped clients based in locations throughout the UK and overseas. She has assisted many parents as they sought to resolve difficult issues regarding residence and contact with their children. She has also acted for grandparents who wish to have contact with or residence of their grandchildren.
One of Julie's clients recently commented:
“I have been very impressed with the exceptional service you have provided. As I am sure many of your clients in similar circumstances have said, this is a particularly difficult time, but your clarity and the efficient way you have dealt with the process, has at least made the legal process considerably less burdensome.”
Before qualifying as a Solicitor, Julie worked as a financial controller for a multi-national company. This prior experience helps her to give particularly efficient and cost-effective advice to clients in relation to the vital financial issues involved in the breakdown of a relationship. She graduated with a Law degree from University of Cambridge in 2005 before joining Gross & Co later the same year.
Julie regularly provides legal advice on BBC Radio Suffolk on topical subjects or changes in the law. Recent subjects include Pre-Marital Agreements and Child Maintenance. She also contributes to the Gross & Co newsletter. Please click here to read a selection of Julie's recent articles.

Julie recently won a competition with the Pestana Chelsea Bridge Hotel to play tennis with former Wimbledon champions, Pat Cash and Goran Ivanesevic and the Harbour Club, Chelsea. Pat and Goran were in London for the AEGON Masters at the Royal Albert Hall and partnered Julie and another competition winner for a game of doubles. Julie is pleased to report that the Cash/McDonald pair won the match!
