David Bulitt is a partner in the Washington DC Metro law firm of Joseph, Greenwald & Laake, PA. He has repeatedly been chosen as one of the Washington area’s top divorce lawyers by multiple publications, recognized as one of the “Best Lawyers in America” and a Washington DC Metro “Super Lawyer.” Praised as “the lawyer who epitomizes stability and old fashioned common sense” by Bethesda Magazine, David has a particular interest in families with special needs children as a result of personal experiences in his own family. He is a published author of two fiction novels, multiple articles in legal publications and has appeared as a special guest on several local television shows.

David and Julie are closing in on 40 years of marriage. They have four daughters and three grandchildren.

Frequent speakers at corporate events and couples retreats, David and Julie share their insights – garnered from decades of professional and personal experiences – in an intimate, yet informal and humor filled fashion.

The Bulitts are regular guests on television, podcasts and radio. What they have listened to, struggled through, and learned about saving a marriage, keeping a family together, or knowing when to call it quits, when to turn to professionals, or when to try tough love, it’s all fair game – on their podcast, in their books, speaking events, presentations and coaching sessions.
