Nurse-Attorney and Associates Serving the Legal Needs of Families in Northwest Indiana

I am Julie R. Glade, a personal injury, criminal defense and family law and divorce attorney serving clients in Lake County, Indiana, Valparaiso, Chesterton, Merrillville and across other areas of Northwest Indiana. As a licensed attorney and a registered nurse, my career path has allowed me to develop a deeper empathy for my clients. I have a heightened understanding of the medical and emotional aspects of their cases and form a relationship built on trust and respect with each of my clients. For example:

  • My nursing training and experiences are beneficial in personal injury cases involving medical malpractice, car accidents, slip and falls and wrongful death, where my client’s injuries need to be properly analyzed, understood and demonstrated to an insurance adjuster, judge or jury.
  • When appealing a Social Security Disability denial, my nursing background allows me to highlight those aspects of my client’s medical records that best demonstrate his or her entitlement to disability benefits.
  • In a child custody dispute, the judge may order the parents and children to undergo psychological evaluations. My experience as a former mental health nurse allows me to interpret and present to the court those aspects of the evaluations that benefit my client’s interests. I also use this experience to understand the totality of the circumstances involved in complex family disputes; this understanding allows me to identify effective strategies for my clients.
  • If you lost a loved one, we can guide you and your family through the Indiana probate administration process.
  • I also represent clients in many different types of criminal defense matters, including misdemeanors such as traffic tickets and OWI.

Whether you are looking for a conscientious Lake County family law attorney to negotiate a settlement in your divorce or family law case or a dedicated advocate who will stand up for your rights when your health and well-being are at stake in court, I am here to help.
