Personal Injury Attorney
Although born and raised in Midland, Texas, Julie Poage always enjoyed her childhood visits to her mother’s side of the family in Fort Worth. So, it was a natural choice for her to continue her legal career in the DFW area.
Ms. Poage graduated from The University of Texas at Austin, where she received a Bachelor of Science degree in Communication Studies in 3 ½ years. Her focus in undergraduate degree work was on corporate communications, while simultaneously earning the prestigious Business Foundations Certification from the University of Texas’ McCombs School of Business, with High Distinction honors.
Ms. Poage moved to Miami, Florida in 2004 to attend law school at the University of Miami School of Law in Coral Gables, Florida. During her law school career, Ms. Poage participated in UM’s esteemed Litigation Skills Program, and also studied abroad in Europe focusing on European Community law and International Alternative Dispute Resolution. Ms. Poage obtained her Florida law license in 2007, and practiced family, guardianship, and probate law in Miami and greater Dade County. Upon admission to the State Bar of Texas in 2009, Ms. Poage returned to Texas and settled in Fort Worth, where her practice has primarily focused on general civil litigation, with an emphasis on personal injury. Ms. Poage joined Bailey & Galyen in 2012 to work in its Personal Injury department handling serious, catastrophic injury cases. She is a member of the State Bar of Texas, the Tarrant County Bar Association, the Fort Worth-Tarrant County Young Lawyers Association, the Junior League of Forth Worth, and Texas Exes, the Ex-Students’ Association of The University of Texas.
