Meet Julia L. Bergstrom

Julia L. Bergstrom


In 2016, Julia joined Koeller Nebeker Carlson Haluck, LLP continuing with her long-standing representation of developers and general contractors in residential and commercial construction litigation, while maintaining a second-pronged focus of defending bodily injury claims.  Her practice includes complex multi-party cases with exposure in the tens of millions of dollars that range from wrongful death construction site, food borne illness and automobile accident cases to multi-faceted construction cases involving structural, soils, civil engineering, architecture, hydrology and numerous other disciplines.

Interested in both health care and the law, Julia pursued both, obtaining her B.S. in Nursing from Loma Linda University and then working in ICU departments both at the University’s teaching hospital, and later, while attending law school at Willamette University in Salem Oregon.  Along the way, Julia has continued to maintain her registered nursing license, most recently obtaining her Advanced Cardiac Life Support certification in order to help stay abreast of medical issues and treatment.

Recognizing that regardless of whether the client is an individual inexperienced with litigation or a seasoned claims or in-house professional, all clients want their lawyer to be accessible and responsive.  Julia strives to be both, and provide wise, experienced advice to her clients at every step.

Julia and her husband, Jay, a retired Marine Corp aviator, have raised two children, now college-aged.  While doing that, they have maintained their roots in the Marine Corps community as well as the local Carlsbad community where their children attended school.
