Julia E. Edwards
Associate

I approach every case with an eye for both legally significant and emotive facts. This allows me to build an effective and persuasive case for mediators, arbitrators, judges, as well as juries.

Julia Edwards joined Gray Reed's litigation section as an associate in 2018 after participating in the firm's summer associate program. She is often called upon by the firm’s litigators who are going to trial to offer her expertise on voir dire and jury selection.

While attending The University of Texas School of Law, Julia received the Dean's Achievement Award for "Outstanding Student in Construction Litigation" and served as articles editor for The Review of Litigation. 

Representative Experience
  • Consulted on voir dire for unanimous jury verdict for Jani-King in a suit to enforce a settlement agreement against a former Jani-King franchisee.
