A graduate of Cornell University with distinction in all subjects, Julia Herzog received her Juris Doctor degree from Osgoode Hall Law School in 2003. She also obtained a Master of Laws and is currently pursuing a Doctorate at the Faculty of Human and Social Development at the University of Victoria. Julia focuses her practice on immigration and citizenship matters relating to Canada and the United States.

Julia clerked for the Federal Court of Canada in 2004. From 2004-2009 she served as a Provincial Crown prosecutor for Ontario and British Columbia, and as a Federal Prosecutor for Canada. Looking for an opportunity to advocate directly for individuals, Julia now is in private practice in Citizenship and Immigration law.  An active member of the Law Society of British Columbia and the New York State Bar, Julia is also a longstanding member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), and Chair of the Victoria Immigration Lawyers’ Group for the Canadian Bar Association BC Immigration Section.

With her substantial legal skills, Julia vigorously pursues and achieves solutions to her client’s immigration and citizenship challenges whether they are related to the United States or Canada. She actively advocates for refugees on a pro-bono basis, and is the founder and current co-chair of the Victoria Chapter of the Refugee Sponsorship Support program.  Julia’s advocacy for refugees was reported in the Globe & Mail and featured in an interview on CBCs “All Points West”.

Julia grew up in New York City and now makes her home on beautiful Vancouver Island.  She is an active member of her local community, plays flute in a Klezmer band, and was recently appointed volunteer Jewish Chaplain for the University of Victoria.  Julia enjoys spending time with her family in the wilderness around Vancouver Island.
