Law Clerk Juli D. Crider has been in litigation since 2002, with her years of experience almost exclusively dedicated to family law. Her areas of expertise include divorce, child custody and parenting time modification, child support modification, legitimation, paternity, contempt, adoption, temporary protective orders, high-asset litigation, and separate maintenance actions. Her professional background also includes selling real estate and flying the friendly skies as a flight attendant in her early years.
Juli began her legal career working in personal injury and family law in addition to juvenile court cases, probate, criminal, and other civil litigation. She worked as a Paralegal for the late John C. Mayoue with Warner, Mayoue, Bates & Nolen, P.C. in Atlanta, where she gained invaluable training in the area of high-asset litigation representing celebrities, professional athletes and affluent clientele. Juli attended law school part-time in the evenings and during that time, she also interned at the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation in the Fulton County Safe Families Office at the Fulton County Courthouse. She assisted Domestic Violence victims in helping them to obtain Temporary Protective Orders and advocated on their behalf under the Third Year Practice Act learning and improving her trial skills.
Juli was raised in Peoria Heights, Illinois and moved to Georgia after meeting her husband, Mark, on an airplane to Hawaii back in 1990 when she was working as a flight attendant and living in New York. The couple have a grown daughter, Isabella, and they reside in Bartow County. Juli received her Paralegal Certificate from Kennesaw State University, a BS in Management from Covenant College, and her J.D. from John Marshall Law School. Once she passes the Georgia Bar, she plans to continue practicing family law with Aaron Thomas Law, LLC.
