Julia Hylton Adams
Adams Mediation was established in 2008 when Julia Hylton Adams transitioned to Senior Judge status after a long career serving as both District Judge of the 25th Judicial District and Circuit Judge of the 25th Judicial Circuit of Kentucky. During her 25-years on the bench, Julia was recognized by her peers on several occasions for her professional commitment and integrity. She is a recipient of the Kentucky Bar Association Outstanding Judge Award, the Kentucky Academy of Trial Attorneys: Henry Pennington Outstanding Trial Judge Award, the University of Kentucky College of Law’s Distinguished Jurist Award, and the Thomas B. Spain Continuing Legal Education Award. Julia is also a member of the University of Kentucky College of Law Alumni Hall of Fame.
Julia was integral in the implementation of numerous judicial system support programs in her community and across the Commonwealth, including the Juvenile Diversion Program, Drug Court, and Parents Education Clinics. She was also instrumental in establishing Domestic Violence protocol.
Julia continues to remain active in the legal community as a mediator for general civil, felony, and family law matters; consultant; and educator. Her tireless work ethic and years of experience combine to help attorneys and their clients reach practical resolutions in even the most complicated, contentious sets of circumstances.
Adams Mediation is based out of Winchester, Kentucky, but Julia is available to travel as needed.
