Julie Kaiser Alley is our newest associate at Hooper, Zinn & McNamee, PLLC. Julie graduated from the Dean’s List at the Nashville School of Law in May 2018 where she received the John B. Downey, Jr. Scholarship related to her academic success. Prior to becoming an attorney, Julie raised two children while maintaining a career as a muralist, artist of fine arts, and an art teacher.  She received her B.A. from Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama.  Julie is a Nashville native, attending Brentwood Academy High School.  She currently lives in Brentwood and is a proud parent of her two adult children who attend Vanderbilt University. 

Every family is unique.  Julie believes every estate plan should also be unique in that each plan meets the needs of each family.  Julie listens to each client and helps identify each client’s needs, goals and concerns to help them establish an estate plan that works specifically for them.  As a trusted advisor to both families and individuals, Julie’s desire is to carefully guide her clients through the estate planning and estate administration process and probate administration.  With the goal of building and maintaining relationships, Julie listens to each client’s needs in order to protect their families, preserve their assets and plan for the future. Estate planning is about protecting what is most important to you and passing on your legacy—including your spiritual, intellectual, and human assets.

Julie seeks to establish ongoing relationships with her clients to make sure that their plans are kept up to date as their needs change over time.  When probate administration is needed, clients trust Julie as she walks the Personal Representative through the entire probate process from start to finish.
