Julie Cornell began her estate planning practice with a particular purpose in mind – to assist people in protecting their families, preserving their assets, and planning for the future.  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.

Julie believes that estate planning is more than meeting with a lawyer for a couple of hours in order to sign some form documents that you don’t understand.  It is about protecting what is most important to you and passing on your legacy – including your spiritual, intellectual, and human assets.  Julie listens to each client and helps identify the client’s goals, needs, and concerns.  She then creates a plan that ensures the safety and well-being of her clients and their families.  Julie’s clients find peace of mind knowing that their plans will actually work when the need arises.

While a Tennessee native, Julie has lived in many different places over the past fifteen years.  She believes that her diverse experiences – from working for a judge in Uganda to starting a law practice with her husband – have made her the well rounded attorney that she is today.  She received her J.D. from Pepperdine University School of Law and her B.A. from the University of Virginia.  Julie’s law practice focuses on estate planning and probate, and she also assists clients with drafting, reviewing and negotiating prenuptial agreements.  Julie and her husband, RJ, love taking their son, Jack, and their dog, Poppy, to the park, spending time with friends and experiencing all the great restaurants that Nashville has to offer.
