Posted by a Family client,
If I could give her a negative score I definitely would. She didn't do anything for me even though I paid her good money for her services. I went through a divorce where I lost everything. My ex-husband kept everything including the car, the house, the savings, the investment accounts, furniture, computer, pictures of myself.... I walked away with just some of my clothes. You may think that this is just material things that are not important in life, but at that time I also had a new job out of state and I asked Monica to keep my plans confidential (since my ex-husband had been physically abusive toward me), but instead she told my ex-husband where I was working and he contacted my boss' boss trying to cause me all kinds of problems. I had zero attorney-client privilege.
I also wanted to change my last name since I was no longer married, and Monica told me that she will gladly help me with that for an additional $1500.00!! Horrible experience! I felt she didn't care about me.

I used Ms. Hanrahan in a family law matter and she failed to provide me with all the information that was made available to her so I could make properly informed decisions in a timely manner thoughout the litigation process. The Judge even awarded $20,000 in attorney fees against me because the Judge stated Monica copied nearly verbatim the opposing parties complaint and pleadings in responses. I would not recommend this attorney as she seemed unable to effectively communicate matters with the court/judge and because she is the only attorney I've met that even billed for her time in sending out her own invoices.
