Julie Weis received a B.A. degree in biology from Baylor University in 1987, where she was a National Merit Scholar, followed by an M.S. degree in biology from the same institution in 1990.  After spending a few years doing doctoral work in ecology at the University of Georgia and its affiliated Savannah River Ecology Lab, Julie obtained her J.D. from Northwestern School of Law, Lewis and Clark College, in 1997.

While in law school, Julie obtained a Certificate in Environmental and Natural Resources Law, earned a spot on the law school’s acclaimed National Environmental Law Moot Court Team two years in a row, and held the position of Articles Editor for Environmental Law.  Upon graduation, Julie was inducted into the law school’s Cornelius Honor Society and joined the Haglund Kelley team.

Julie practices in a variety of civil litigation areas with a particular emphasis on environmental and natural resources law and litigation.  Julie’s approach to the law is grounded in science.  That sound foundation has enabled Julie to support her clients in pursuing their goals and having their voices heard in regulatory and judicial proceedings for more than 25 years.
