Attorney Julie Steinbacher, owner and founding shareholder of Steinbacher, Goodall & Yurchak, was recently named by Pennsylvania Business Central to its annual Women Making a Difference list. This annual recognition program run by PA Business Central's Women in Business publication recognizes women in central Pennsylvania whose intelligence, drive, determination and dedication have led to business success and community involvement. This marks the ninth year of the program (see Julie's profile in Women Making a Difference)

Nominations were made by readers of PA Business Central and others in the business community within PA Business Central's coverage area. Nominations were reviewed and candidates were selected to the list by a selection committee at the St. Francis University Business Development Center. 

Julie founded the law firm now known as Steinbacher, Goodall & Yurchak in 2002, with offices in Williamsport and State College. The elder law and estate and special needs planning law firm assists clients in planning for their second half of life. Julie is a Certified Elder Law Attorney (CELA) through the National Elder Law Foundation (NELF), one of only 67 in Pennsylvania, and one of just six in the greater Williamsport and State College regions combined (two of the other five - Amos Goodall & Brittany Smith - are also attorneys at Steinbacher, Goodall & Yurchak). She is also the founder and president of Estate & Long-Term Care Planning, Inc., an organization that educates estate and elder law attorneys from across the nation. Last year, she received the C. Dale McClain Quality of Life/Balance award from the Pennsylvania Bar Association, and earlier this year, was selected a Super Lawyer® in Thomson Reuters' annual list of the same name. Julie was also named to PA Business Central's annual Top 100 People list earlier this year, marking the third time she was named to this list. 

A Magna Cum Laude graduate of Widener University School of Law, Julie sits on the board of Hope Enterprises, Inc. and also is a trustee for the YWCA of North Central Pennsylvania.
