Summary

Julia A. Pucci, managing partner with Pucci Pirtle, focuses her practice in the areas of divorce and custody litigation. Ms. Pucci attended Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington, Illinois where she received a Bachelor of Arts, cum laude, in Sociology and Political Science. Ms. Pucci subsequently earned her Juris Doctor from St. Louis University School of Law in St. Louis, Missouri. During her law school career, Julia taught legal research and writing as a teaching assistant and was also active in the mediation clinic where she obtained her mediation certification. As a certified mediator, she mediated court-ordered child custody matters and assisted parents in drafting parenting and custody agreements. After being admitted to the Bar, Ms. Pucci was employed as an Assistant State's Attorney for the County of McHenry where she worked in the civil division, enforced child support orders and handled other civil matters for the County. Ms. Pucci was then employed with a large Schaumburg firm where she concentrated her practice on domestic relations matters and continued to do so as a partner with Schwarz & Pucci, LLC and now Pucci Pirtle. Ms. Pucci obtained advanced training in mediation and firmly believes that mediation is an avenue that many parties faced with tough domestic relations issues may benefit from, both in the area of custody matters and also financial issues. Because of her training, she is more proficient in negotiating fair settlements for her clients. However, Ms. Pucci also understands quite well that some matters simply cannot be settled by way of mediation or other negotiation tactics and thus, if the matter must be litigated, she has a strong courtroom presence and is well respected by the Court. Ms. Pucci approaches every case with the goal of problem solving while understanding that each client has a unique set of circumstances.
