Perkins Re-elected to Detroit Bar Association Board of Directors
Varnum family law attorney Julia A. Perkins has been re-elected to the board of directors of the Detroit Bar Association.
The 30-member board meets monthly to provide strategic leadership for the DBA membership. Perkins has been a member of the DBA since 2016, holding her position on the board since 2017. As the oldest Bar association in Michigan and one of the three oldest Bar associations in the country, the DBA serves Detroit’s legal community through networking, practice development and community service.
Perkins leads the Varnum’s Family Law Team, working with clients in family law matters including divorce, child custody, child support and parenting time matters. She has unique experience with international custody cases as well as valuation and division of high net worth marital estates. She is also a certified mediator with a focus in family law. In addition to her practice, she is an adjunct family law professor at Detroit Mercy Law.
Within the community, Perkins serves on the advisory committee for Kids-Talk Children's Advocacy Center, helping abused and neglected children. She also serves on the City of Canton’s Planning Commission and prior to that served on its zoning board of appeals.
"Raising the Bar 2020," the annual meeting of the Detroit Bar Association, will be held virtually on Thursday, August 13, acclimating to the current pandemic. In addition to installing new members, this event will recognize those who have shown exceptional dedication to the outreach and growth of the law, within both the Detroit Bar and community.
