I was experiencing a very stressful staff/management issue at my place of work that involved human resources and an investigation. Ms. Montalbano was able to review the facts with me and provide a course of action for myself to communicate in a positive manner with my employer over what my concerns and request for further action would be. This helped me stay calm and focused during a very unpleasant time. Ms. Montalbano is clear, concise, and checks in with regard to progress. I recommend her services to anyone experiencing problems at their place of employment.
My business partner and I received Sonia's name from an attorney friend as we were preparing to launch a new small business. From the beginning Sonia engendered confidence in the process. As a small business we were looking for an attorney who would understand what we needed and provide practical and timely advice on how to proceed on a number issues. Sonia and her colleagues came through in spades, all while providing a reasonable price tag! We feel confident that our business is well prepared for any potential challenges it may face. We will continue to seek Sonia's advice on business and employment issues to maintain the high integrity of our venture.
Sonia is a good straight shooter, does not drag on anything to burn the clock. I use several legal teams for my medium sized company, and she is the one I use from time to time when I need unusual problems that need to be corrected in a way that will not resurface in the future or a resolution that would take other attorneys several letters to get the job done. Hence you get what you pay for.
Ms. Montalbano represented me in a real estate dispute. The self-represented seller refused to return our earnest money when the transaction failed because the house did not appraise. Ms. Montalbano listened well to our concerns and testimony, and obtained great testimony from the real estate professionals involved in the failed transaction. She won at arbitration, and then won a summary judgment when the seller sought a trial de novo in Circuit Court.
