About

Julie Gentili Armbrust

Attorney-Mediator

I was bringing an end to a 31-year marriage. Julie almost immediately recognized that my ex-husband and I had different communication styles, and so she communicated with each of us in the way that we could best relate. He is the analytical one and I am emotional. She nailed it, giving each of us confidence. She was both knowledgeable and reassuring. I am grateful for her guidance and highly recommend her in the difficult process of ending a marriage.

Divorce Client

Divorce is one of the most gut-wrenching experiences anyone can endure. How do I know that? I’ve been in your shoes.

If you can save your marriage… do it! But if your circumstances require a divorce, then choose a divorce process that will respect you, respect your spouse, and protect your family. Divorce mediation is that process.

Because I’ve been through it myself, I know you need to be heard, I know you need to think, I know you need guidance, and I know (at times) you need to be pushed.

Here’s my truth… 

The mediators think I am too evaluative. The attorneys think I am too woo woo. I believe in research and data. I also believe in faith without proof. 

The conservatives think I am too liberal. The liberals think I am too conservative. 

The truth is I am fair. In most disagreements, I see both sides… as a seasoned mediator should.

It means I have the experience to know ego from need, the intuitiveness to recognize fear from anger, and the wisdom to guide people to a fair resolution for everyone.

In short, I help divorcing couples cut through the emotional baggage of divorce and settle their matter outside of the courtroom… keeping their dignity,their privacy, and their wallet intact.

Here’s the fancy stuff you may want to know: I am an attorney who has been exclusively mediating family matters for over twenty years. I have taught thousands of lawyers the art of mediation. I have been recognized as a leader in mediation by my peers with the Sid Lezak Award. I am also a former professor of mediation at the University of Oregon School of Law. 

The biggest feather in my cap is that I have been cited in a United States Supreme Court Writ of Certiorari as an expert in special education facilitation. 

I am also the mother of two amazing sons and two furry girls. (The latter have been fired by two puppy trainers, but I still love them.) I’m an avid cook who loves food and hates exercising — but I’ve been known to work up a sweat on the trail if there’s a waterfall at the end!

I want to help you find your peace.
