He is often retained to represent clients during all stages of the criminal process from investigation into alleged criminal matters, to trial, appeal, and post-conviction relief.

Additionally, Julian has extensive experience representing clients charged with the possession and distribution of controlled substances in prosecutions commenced by county district attorney’s offices as well as the Attorney General of Pennsylvania. Notable successes include the suppression of 30g of cocaine and a firearm following an unconstitutional search of a client’s home, representation of an individual during the investigation into a homicide which resulted in no charges being filed against the client, numerous acquittals at trial, and countless favorable plea negotiations which have resulted in clients who were charged with violent felonies avoiding jail time altogether.
