After my son was hit by an Uber driver while we were visiting Washington, D.C. from New York City, it was daunting task to find a lawyer far away from home. Fortunately, a friend who practices negligence law in NYC researched the Washington bar on my behalf and learned about the extraordinary practice of Julie Oliver-Zhang, Esquire.
As a Chinese immigrant not comfortable in English (yes, this comment is written with the assistance of Google translate!), I needed an attorney who could communicate with me in Mandarin. Ms. Oliver-Zhang and her dedicated colleagues explained every aspect of my case to me with the greatest patience. They advised me over many years and were vigilant in standing up to Uber and the insurance company. The result was an outstanding settlement for my son who has suffered greatly and deserved the best legal representation. Thank you to Ms. Zhang and her extraordinary colleagues — Rachel, Amanda, & Kelly. You give a great name to the legal profession. Needless to say, I recommend them with boundless enthusiasm to anyone who wants the finest representation.
I was seriously injured in a horrible medical negligence case. Friends recommended a couple lawyers. As I reside in MD, one of the few states that has laws protecting big business establishments, the couple lawyers did not give me much hope to get justice. Luckily, I got in contact with Julie. She is so different. She listened to my ordeal with compassion. She believed in me. She gave me hope that justice would be done. It turned out my case is a very tough one. I was against a powerful and deep pocket establishment that has the resources to drag the case out to 6 years long. During this lengthy and time-consuming process, Julie and her team never give up on me. Their patience, compassion, professionalism, and legal knowledge are all number one. Julie is amazing. I feel that she was always on top of my case, gave me updates and progress throughout the years, gave me encouragement and hope that justice would be done. If you have a tough case and want justice, I will not recommend anyone else but Julie Oliver-Zhang.
I have been very pleased with the law services provided by Julie Oliver-Zhang in settling a personal injury lawsuit. Several months after a devastating accident while undergoing physical therapy, Julie sat down with us and discussed the options we had in getting my wife fairly compensated. She let us know from the start how long it might take to settle or go to trial, and how our case was impacted by our state’s personal-injury laws which made it even tougher. Julie’s team of excellent legal professionals were soon able to make us feel more comfortable and confident that we were doing the right thing in fighting for compensation for my wife. Julie kept us up to date and helped us throughout the legal fight. I firmly believe that Julie did an excellent job handling our lawsuit. I would highly recommend her services to anyone seeking an experienced, skilled and caring lawyer to help them fight for the compensation they are due.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed working with the Oliver-Zhang Law team for my wife’s application for adjustment of status (from travel visa to permanent resident). At the start, we were simply seeking consultation about our options, but we immediately felt comfortable with them. Throughout the process, we had numerous phone conversations with Rachel as they helped figure out a strategy for us, and we were in contact with several members of their team at different points. We greatly appreciated their availability and how patiently they listened to our story and the special considerations we had. Moreover, they were very flexible and cooperative with us in devising an approach that we were comfortable with.
The Oliver-Zhang Law team thoroughly prepared us for every step of the process. Prior to submitting our application, they helped us gather a wide range of supporting evidence. They also helped us organize and select evidence to include with our submission, and prepared a briefing that detailed our background and grounds for admissibility as well as outlined all of our supporting evidence. On top of that, they prepared multiple briefings to address to the special considerations we faced. Post submission, they stayed in contact with us anytime they received case notifications, helped us gather post-submission evidence, and continued to answer our questions. Once our interview was set, Julie led us through a comprehensive mock interview, and the team continued to write supporting documents and answer questions, even on the day of our interview when Julie met us. Our interview was a success, and my wife’s application was quickly approved thereafter.
Overall, my wife and I confidently recommend Julie and her entire team to anyone looking for knowledgeable, experienced, prepared, and successful attorneys who are always available, willing to listen, and easy to work with.
Before I called the Law Office of Julie Oliver-Zhang, two other law advisers told me that my case was too hard and risky; A couple of great friends from church highly recommended Julie’s services and since the first call was free, I figured, Why not? It was the best decision I could take! She asked me to send her an email with the details of my case, next day she followed up with the free call and she told me that she could help me, she was very upfront with the total price and explained the process from the beginning. My husband and I could tell Julie and her team really knew what they were doing, Marcela, Rachel and Julie were always very cordial and professional. I was impressed when I saw a big binder with all our pictures and information and the narrative of how our story began until the present time, how they took the time to practice before the interview and how Julie was right there with us while we were being interviewed. I have been recommending the Law Office of Julie Oliver-Zhang to my friends and I will always be thankful for all their help.
I am a victim of the medication drug, Actos. In the past few years, I was injured by this drug and contracted bladder cancer, but no one would help me with the claim. Fortunately, I met Attorney Julie Oliver-Zhang, and she brought me great tidings. Her renowned reputation in the legal industry gave me the confidence to rely on her.

Julie came highly recommended to me from a friend who works with domestic violence issues and security in the workplace. I am so happy I followed that lead.
It was the best decision of my life.
I came to Julie with a complicated and urgent situation involving domestic violence, sexual assault, and marriage fraud. I was a victim facing terrifying allegations that I was the aggressor and abuser. I’m a U.S. citizen and a sponsor for my husband who holds conditional permanent residency. I’d suspected he was leading a double life with another wife back home. I wanted a separation and he refused. Julie took great care listening to my story and finding the truth in it. After our first meeting, I trusted her completely. She was compassionate and treated me with the utmost respect and professionalism. Her staff was also amazing in the way they welcomed and supported me. We only had a short time to prepare before our court appearance scheduled the following Monday morning. Julie worked tirelessly all week and weekend long up to the very last hour which was around 11:00 pm Sunday night. She successfully negotiated at that late hour giving me exactly what I wanted – a voluntary separation and property settlement agreement on the house. I am grateful that I did not have to go before a judge and put my horrible domestic life on public display. However, I’m convinced that had we gone before the judge that we would have won. Julie is spectacular and if I were ever to have legal problems related to domestic violence or immigration, I would turn to her in a heartbeat.
“Julie and her team are very professional and considerate. We would definitely recommend her team to whoever needs legal assistance. We are same-sex couple from Florida and we got married in Washington, D.C. My husband is a U.S. citizen and I’m from a foreign country and as soon as we got married, we started to prepare our green card application. We were on a very tight budget and schedule and our case had a lot challenges, as my visa was about to expire and we didn’t have enough time to arrange a wedding reception. My husband has been a full-time graduate student since 2012, so we had to find a co-sponsor for our green card application. With Julie and her team’s assistance, we collected more than enough evidence to support our application. Julie and her team’s attorney fee were very reasonable and her team expedited and submitted our application within three weeks.”
“In the DC metropolitan area where family law attorneys are abundant in supply, it has become common to hear stressful stories of people who have searched long and hard for the right attorney for their cases, only to retain an attorney who suddenly loses interest and dedication to their case shortly after they have been paid a large retainer fee.
This is not the case with the Oliver-Zhang Law Office legal team, as they do not shy away from a complex case and will bring the necessary tough litigation strategy, skill and fierce determination to see your case through to the very end.
Even more importantly, Julie Oliver-Zhang is one of the few attorneys whom you can trust and who will not sell you out in those infamous side discussions and negotiations with opposing counsel. My case was a “David vs. Goliath” scenario, wherein my opponent had endless resources and a strong legal team. Despite this overwhelming situation that intimidated and bested my previous attorneys, Julie and her team were able to successfully navigate through all of the obstacles that the opposing side tried to throw our way.
In the end, we were victorious and she was able to get me an outcome greater than what I had expected. Moreover, her senior counsel, Amanda Utterback, is excellent in her legal skills and very innovative in developing litigative strategies. Together they are a force not to be reckoned with.
It is with high praise and admiration, and no hesitation that I recommend the Oliver-Zhang Law Office legal team.”
“Attorney Julie Oliver-Zhang is not only a diligent, meticulous, and responsible lawyer, but she is also a friend who is full of love and compassion. Because of her help, I successfully received my green card and permanent residency, which allowed my child and I to start a new, stable life in the United States.
With heartfelt appreciation for Attorney Julie Oliver-Zhang –
Everyone has a dream. For me, it was coming to America. In the beginning, my dream seemed to be out of reach. However, Attorney Julie Oliver-Zhang made my dreams come true!
Before I came to the U.S., I had consulted with other lawyers many times about how to apply for an L-1 Visa. Disappointed time after time, my applications failed and I saw no possibility to succeed. The extremely complicated procedure frustrated me.
In fortuitous moment, I saw Attorney Oliver-Zhang in a Chinese newspaper. Her bright, encouraging smile drew me to contact her without hesitation. Her voice was full of passion and enthusiasm. We had a pleasant talk for a full thirty minutes, and speaking to her assured my decision to choose her to be my attorney.
The first time we met was in the lobby of the hotel my family and I stayed. Not only did she have extensive knowledge, spoke with frankness and honesty, and was responsible, but I also saw how she stood out from attorneys— she was zealous and sincere. Her friendly, smiling face was so personable and made me feel warm and at ease to talk to her. This left a deep impression on me.
These reasons led to my resolute decision to choose her as my lawyer, and she helped me successfully obtain my L-1 visa approval, and derivative visas for my husband and my child.
I witnessed her sincerity, diligence, and the optimistic heart of a responsible, good attorney who truly wanted to help people. I want to express my earnest appreciation for her.
During our interactions, my assessment of Attorney Julie Oliver-Zhang is that she is professional, skilled, compassionate, kind, optimistic, and is a trustworthy, reliable, good lawyer. I want to give her a million thanks from my heart.
From our first meeting in May 2014 to May 2015, when my L-1 visa was approved by the USCIS, I changed from a client to a friend in a year’s time.
I appreciate that my home country cultivated me. I appreciate God for giving me the chance to come to the United States. And I also want to give my most heartfelt gratitude to Attorney Julie Oliver-Zhang, who gave me the opportunity to remain in the United States. Thank you. I wish her a prosperous career, and hope that more people could receive her help when they are in need.
Original letter from X.S.:
“I would definitely recommend Julie to my friends and family because of how personable she is and how knowledgeable she is, and how she goes the extra mile. You can expect someone who is like a friend, who will be there by your side and guide you through. I had no real expectations of a lawyer because I had never used one before. It ended up being someone who actually cared. She made you feel at ease, that nothing was not doable. For somebody to put up that big of a fight, it makes you feel like you have to put up that big of a fight as well. She has a passion for what she is doing and she gives that passion to other people. I feel that she fought for everything she could fight for and did everything she possibly could. She is a go-getter and she will get whatever she can get for her clients. It’s amazing someone would have that much desire to help the victim. I definitely feel like Julie fought for me and my family every step of the way to make the drug companies pay for what they did.”
“Learning that my cancer may have been caused by an untested and ineffective drug therapy was devastating. From the moment I began working with Attorney Julie Oliver-Zhang, I knew I had a kind, caring individual in my court who would work tirelessly for me and my family. Our case was a true David vs. Goliath situation, and Julie fought with everything she had for us. I truly appreciated how quickly Julie responded to my calls and e-mails, and always felt like my case was a priority. Thank you Julie!”
“Julie’s compassion about our issue was self-assuring. She guided us, encouraged us, and was more than our attorney. She made us feel like her family. Julie’s team was flawless and consistently updated us on what was going on and gave us the confidence we needed on this sensitive issue. Let’s face it, same sex marriage is a challenge in and of itself, and to add same sex, LGBT immigration on top of that, takes someone with patience, talent, and confidence, all of which Julie possesses.”
“I very much appreciated Julie Oliver-Zhang’s attention, responsiveness and support during this lengthy and time consuming process. I can’t say enough good things about her focus on my particular case to its final conclusion. Thank you!”
