Attorney Profile

Caring, personal representation with a special emphasis on resolving complex financial and property issues is the hallmark of Julie Ellen Landau, who has practiced family and divorce law for more than 35 years. Julie represents individuals in all matters related to the negotiation of  prenuptial agreements, divorce, custody, alimony and division of property, and related matters. Julie has published and lectured widely on family law and related topics. Although she prefers resolution of legal issues by alternative dispute resolution (and is a certified collaborative law professional and mediator), Julie is an effective litigator often requested to teach continuing legal education on litigation tactics and strategy. Julie is AV-Preeminent rated, the highest rating available from Martindale-Hubbell.

Julie’s active involvement in several local philanthropic organizations evidences her commitment to helping the community as well as her clients.  She currently is a board member of the Equal Justice Council, an organization dedicated to securing funding for Maryland Legal Aid, so that the indigent can receive legal representation. Julie also is active in local bar association activities, and has been appointed to serve on both the Baltimore City and Baltimore County Bench Bar Committees.  In November 2012, Julie was recognized by The Daily Record for her accomplishments, and received its distinguished Leadership in the Law Award.

Congratulations to Julie for her inclusion on the Super Lawyers Top 100 Lawyers list and Top 50 Women list for 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.
