Julia Quinn has been practicing family law exclusively for more than seven years and with a special focus on domestic violence.
Education & Humanitarian Work
Julia graduated with honors from Saint Mary’s College in 2008. Before attending law school, she moved to Vietnam where she volunteered at a center for orphans and children with disabilities. She then attended the University of San Francisco School of Law.
Before she began practicing family law as a certified law student, Julia worked for the Cambodian Centre for Human Rights, focusing on the wrongful imprisonment of human rights advocates. She also worked with the Center for Justice and Accountability on the Khmer Rouge trials. Later, Julia would present research on the right to food at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.
In her second year at law school, Julia interned at Bay Area Legal Aid where she began practicing family law in and outside the courtroom as a certified law student. There, she was mentored by award-winning family law specialists.
After passing the Bar on the first try, Julia returned to Bay Area Legal Aid where she continued to practice exclusively family law with a strong emphasis on domestic violence advocacy. During that time, Julia established case law in the case of Gou v. Xiao, which clarified a mother’s right to seek a domestic violence restraining order.
Julia began her own practice but eventually wound down that practice to work for Miller & Associates, Attorneys LLP, which was voted “Best of the Best” in Placer County each of the four years she worked there.
In 2019, Julia returned to her home of San Francisco. She continues to work tirelessly to advocate for her clients. Julia understands that family law is a unique area of law and that it is usually the worst time in someone’s life when they are seeking the assistance of a family law attorney. Julia prides herself on being able to empathize with her clients while being a vigorous advocate to help them assert their rights. In addition to being an experienced family law attorney, Julia is also a licensed officiant. She has married three couples, all of which are still happily married today.
