In early 2014, I retained Monique Alonso regarding a Trust matter. I needed to obtain earlier versions of testamentary documents in order to make an informed decision about pursuing a Trust contest. I was told by all the other attorneys I interviewed that I was not legally entitled to the documents until I filed a formal Trust contest. Monique came up with an ingenious strategy to successfully obtain the documents I needed in order to make an educated decision about my case.
Monique is a trustworthy, extraordinarily competent, and committed advocate. She genuinely cared about me and my case. Monique’s unwavering commitment to the success of my case made me feel confident I had made the right choice. I knew I was in great hands legally which made me feel safe and protected legally and financially.
Monique and her entire team were phenomenal. We were involved in a very complex international business. Things did not go the way we had hoped and everyone came out of the woodwork trying to get a piece of us. Monique and her firm were truly expert in boiling the multiple cases down to several key issues, consolidating some of the cases and then vigorously built a solid fact based defense. They worked tirelessly for 4 years until the case finally came to trial and then performed brilliantly during trial. Their knowledge of the facts was so deep that they were able to not only dissect the oppositions positions, but get their witnesses to change their positions on the stand because of the overwhelming evidence they were able to refer to at a moments notice. We won at trial overwhelmingly., so much so that we were subsequently awarded both expenses and virtually all of our attorney's fees (like seven figures worth of attorney's fees). Huge win! Awesome attorney!
Monique and her entire law office are very professional, informative and helpful. She was honest and fought very hard for us. She always kept us informed and answered all my questions( and I had at least a 1000). She represented our family in a civil rights case and we came out with a great settlement. I would not only recommend her I would use her firm again. In an attorney you want someone you feel is on your side and she did that for us.
