Julie A. Gafkay practices law throughout the state of Michigan and is located centrally in Saginaw County, Michigan. She has been in private practice since 2003. Although the main focus of her practice is employment discrimination law, she also focuses on personal injury, whistleblower protection and estate planning. Ms. Gafkay has won several high-profile cases for her clients.
In a 2009 case, Ms. Gafkay represented a client whose fractured leg resulted from an auto accident caused by a negligent driver. The defendant's insurance company offered a settlement of $100,000, which Ms. Gafkay and the plaintiff promptly rejected. She fought tenaciously for her client and won a more suitable judgment of $750,000 for the plaintiff.
She has served as President of the Saginaw County Bar Association and director of the Pro Bono Committee. Ms. Gafkay successfully balances the state's legal interests with the needs of low-income clients by graciously donating her time to help those in need. Her years of experience and dedication to righting the wrongs of discrimination, which include seven years as an associate with a Flint law firm, are testament to her total commitment to her clients.
Ms. Gafkay is a member of the Frankenmuth Morning Rotary Club and contributes heavily to that organization's charitable efforts. A member and director of the Chamber of Commerce, she also sits on the board of directors of the Frankenmuth Community Foundation. She completed her Bachelor of Arts at Michigan State University's James Madison College in 1992 and finished her Juris Doctor in 1996 at Whittier College in California.
