Julie Ann Garber, J.D.

Julie Ann Garber, J.D. is an experienced estate planning attorney turned bank trust officer dedicated to helping you understand why planning for the possibility of mental incapacity and certain death should be made top priorities in your life. On her GuideSite Julie strives to take the mystery and "legalese" out of estate planning and instead explain it in easy to understand "plain English." She also encourages her readers to make a plan now and then review and update the plan frequently because this will save time and money in the future and ultimately prevent family discord.


Julie began practicing in estate planning in the Washington, D.C. area in 1995 and was in private practice as an estate planning attorney for 18 years (in Maryland and then Florida) before joining Fifth Third Private Bank as a Senior Trust Officer in sunny Southwest Florida in January 2014.

By Julie Garber:

I have a thorough love for what I do and enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience with anyone willing to listen. I view estate planning not as a one time transaction but as a life long process that must change as the law, clients, and lawyer change. With this as a back drop, one of my professional goals is to convince people to see lawyers in a different light by making them understand the real value that their estate planning attorney can add to their lives and the lives of their families. I want my readers to see their estate planning attorney not only as their lawyer, but as their trusted advisor.

You may contact me via email: willsguide@gmail.com. However, please note that due to the number of emails I receive and the restrictions placed on attorneys by state bar rules and the attorney-client privilege, I may not be able to personally respond to your inquiry.
