“Treat people like they are human beings and not just another number, dollar sign, or case.” —Julie Tolek
Sam and Julie Tolek chat about what it means to be a solo lawyer and how to create a brand experience that doesn’t intimidate clients. Julie also tells us about how she manages her client tasks and what it takes to maintain a work-life balance in the legal field.
A geek by nature, Julie started her own technology consulting and education company, Mac Girl Consulting, in 2008 after she left Apple to pursue her dreams of becoming a lawyer. In law school, Julie earned the privilege of becoming an Academic Excellence Honors Fellow where she worked with struggling first year law students as a mentor and coach, teaching them the art of being a law student, including life and time management skills, and legal analysis and writing skills.
