Julie Sagers believes passionately in the importance of family and protecting the rights of her clients, whether at mediation or in court. Julie focuses her attention on the children of divorcing or separating parents, and how to protect their best interests and shield them from parental conflict as much as possible. Dedicated to public service as well, Julie regularly volunteers at the Salt Lake Family Law Clinic, and the Third District Court’s pro se calendar.
Julie is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin Law School. Julie also graduated Cum Laude from the University of Utah with a Bachelor of Science in Sociology and a Certificate in Criminology.
Prior to law school, Julie was Congressman Jim Matheson’s Legislative Correspondent in Washington, D.C., and also managed the Congressman’s educational platform. Living in Washington, D.C. was a once in a lifetime experience, but Julie’s interest in the law compelled her to go to law school in 2010.
During law school Julie had the opportunity to study abroad at the University of Sheffield in the United Kingdom. Julie also volunteered at the University of Wisconsin’s Protective Order Clinic and tutored undergraduate students in English and History. She also interned at both the Utah Attorney General’s Office and the Salt Lake City Prosecutor’s Office, which greatly broadened her legal experience and training.
Julie’s practice focuses on family related issues and she is an active member of the Family Law Section of the Utah State Bar. Julie is licensed in both Utah and Wisconsin.
Julie lives in Salt Lake City with her husband and their Golden Retriever, Marley. She enjoys coaching and judging “mock trials” for children at local middle schools too.
