Eye-opening

Judie tackles tough issues that can be difficult to hear and process. She helps her listeners through in a way that balances the emotional challenges with the legal issues. A true resource.

Legally Brief

Judie has a way of eloquently presenting difficult topics which challenge us as parents at all levels. She is committed to presenting facts and provides the victims as well as the families of the victims a forum to listen as well as digest the shared, unfathomable circumstances. Unfortunately this is reality.
