Since 2000, I've been working with companies of all sizes within a wide range of industries. The first part of my career was mainly focused in marketing within the software industry, while my most recent experience has evolved and expanded to general business management. I've been part of SFL since the firm opened its doors, so I've had the opportunity and privilege to help the firm grow and serve over 1,200+ clients since 2008. Today, I continue to manage the firm's operations and leverage new technologies to help maintain efficiency with our systems, policies and procedures.
Whether it's at work or at home, my experience has taught me that people are stronger when they work together, so finding the right fit with people is the key to success - both professionally and personally. Nobody's perfect, but I believe a perfect balance of strengths and weaknesses within a team brings out the best in people, which is at the core of how we hire people and work with clients at SFL.
The legal process is a new experience for most people, and just like other industries, the legal industry also has it's fair share of good and bad professionals, so finding the right fit with a family lawyer is the most important decision you'll make during the process. The reality is all lawyers have a professional obligation to the Law Society of Ontario, but not all lawyers have an obligation to keep clients happy and satisfied with their experience. This is where SFL is different because we apply modern business rules and best-practices to help keep our clients happy and satisfied from start to finish, which is probably one of the reasons why we have the most client reviews than any other family law firm in the city.
To help minimize risk and reach positive results in family law, I always encourage clients to interview different lawyers before retaining one. It's a bit more work up-front, but finding the right fit will make them happier in the end.
I was represented by Julie Stanchieri during my recent separation and divorce and could not have been more pleased with the outcomes. Julie and her team which included Ashley and Katelynn handled every detail and concern with a high level of care and expertise. Everyone at the firm is extremely professional and efficient as well as a pleasure to deal with. Going through a divorce is a highly emotional event in one’s life and Julie and her team approached everything with compassion and understanding. Her diligence and attention to detail ensured that my settlement was fair and protected my best interests.
Without hesitation I would highly recommend Julie and the entire team of professionals at Stanchieri Family Law!
Julie represented me with my Family Law case. My particular file was very much financial based involving complicated valuation issues. I was extremely impressed with Julie’s mastery of the valuation issues. It was evident to me that she has a particular aptitude for financial cases involving complex valuation issues, including forensic accounting and other related areas of expertise. Her depth of knowledge was quite apparent at trial with her questions and follow through questions in chief and particularly on cross-examination. If you retain Julie, you will find her to be honest, extremely hard-working, and a genuine advocate on your behalf. In addition, her legal support staff are outstanding people that share Julie’s view on a client centric practice.
Julie is honest, reasonable and sensible.She will give you the best advice. Although lawyers are expensive, she will try her best to save you some costs. I have gone through probably one of the nastiest divorces and it still trickles along, she has been supportive to the best of her abilities.And she is persuasive. Her staff is very nice and prompt.
The Stanchieri Family Law practice is an exceptionally competent and high quality firm. I was very impressed with their professionalism and how they really really cared about my family and I as they navigated through my extremely complicated divorce. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs a compassionate and resourceful attorney.
Julie & her team were exceptional. Timely, expert, efficient and understood my requirements clearly. I would & have recommended her firm.
People are stronger when they work together, so finding the right fit with people is the key to success - both professionally and personally.
