Julie C. King
Solo Practice
I'm a solo practice attorney in Champaign, Illinois. It is a general practice, but I focus on wills, trusts, estate planning, powers of attorney, and corporation and partnership formation.

In prior general small firm practice, I performed primary work on successful creditor-side bankruptcy cases involving up to $6,000,000 in secured interests; successfully defended multiple civil cases involving real property, contracts, and torts in Tennessee and Georgia courts against motions for summary judgment; served as counsel for a local bank regarding civil cases; assisted clients with clearing up fraudulently damaged credit reports; assisted clients with charitable estate donations of real property, and trained new associates with regard to research and writing skills.

I have extensive experience with alternative dispute resolution, having been a registered neutral in Georgia for years, able to assist parties with mediation and arbitration efforts. In addition, I assisted a nationally recognized labor relations arbitrator and mediator with case review and award drafting.

I was part of a small team of attorney consultants in Chicago that managed various document review and analysis projects for insurance industry clients, including review of Superfund site cleanup liability and liability for reinsurance of bodily injury claims for asbestos and silica exposure. My work helped produce analytical support for a potential savings of approximately 57% ($111 million) of claimed costs for the insurer client for three Superfund sites, a proposed 50% aggregate reduction (approximately $75 million) in the liability of a joint defense group of insurers for a manufacturer of asbestos-containing products, a potential 50% ($5 million) reduction in the liability of an insurer of a manufacturer of asbestos-containing products, and a potential 70% ($3.5 million) reduction in another insurer’s liability to a manufacturer of asbestos-containing products. I also co-managed operations for the company for six months, including handling of client relationships, development of project proposals and budgets, and development of marketing strategies.
