Lawful Good

Jun 8 2022 • 1 hr 27 mins

Our guest today is Julia Metts, attorney with Levin, Papantonio, and Rafferty in Florida.

Julia was born to a Pentecostal homemaker and a rebel atheist, and as the youngest of three children, often found herself the center of attention.  From an early age, Julia exhibited a gift for persuasion. Between that and her father's early problems with the law, her path toward a career as a lawyer was clear.

What Julia hadn't expected is that much of that career would be spent in prosecution.  After quickly developing a name for herself, some defense lawyers wouldn't even dare face her in court.

In this interview, we discuss Julia's experiences as a member of the LGBTQ+ community while attending a Baptist college, the loss of the first woman she ever loved, her biggest tips for prosecuting attorneys, and how being a parent has shaped her life.

A note to listeners: Julia and I will be discussing some disturbing court cases and personal experiences involving suicide and violence against women.  While we won't discuss graphic details, listener discretion is advised.
