WHY HAVE YOU NOT HIRED HER YET?! STOP WAITING YOU'RE ONLY HURTING YOURSELF AND YOUR KIDS WAITING TO DO SO!!!
The best damn move I did was to hire her. She has been invested deeply into my case for a VERY looooong time. Over 5 years work if not longer. She is RUTHLESS in the court room and speaks frankly with you. She is always easy to get a hold of to talk to and responds quickly with easy guidance. She literally knows almost everyone in the courts whether it is the judge you're in front of or the lawyers you are against in the court room and works closely with the kids attorneys which is a HUGE help to your case. If you're a dude.. nothing looks better than having a female attorney like her fighting for you. Sorry but it's true. She fights tirelessly and non stop for you and for what is right. I swear this woman doesn't friggin sleep. Many times I have emailed her about something late at night that had happened with my kids that I found out from my ex with the kids and she is right there responding back to me at late hours in the night and early mornings making the issues known to the others that are involved in your case. Like I was honestly shocked and wasn't expecting it when I sent her something after midnight regarding my kids with what was going on and she responded right away and dealt with it by the morning to have it addressed! THAT IS DEDICATION TO YOUR CLIENTS! Never have I ever had an attorney like her and because of her help I have been able to keep calm knowing she is on top of everything. So for real.. if you are in search for a bad aśśed attorney to have your back.. stop searching here and hire her! She won't steer you wrong.. she knows exactly what she is doing and won't let you down. IF YOU WANT A FAIR CHANCE TO DEFEND YOUR CASE YOU NEED TO HIRE HER! STOP WASTING YOUR TIME AND MONEY ON CRAPPY ATTORNEYS OUT TO TAKE YOUR MONEY AND NOT DO CRAP FOR YOU!! The legal system is jacked but she is the ONLY one that can get you through it to help you! SHE DOESN'T LOSE!

Going through a divorce was one of the hardest experiences of my life. I have young children and domestic violence was an issue. Elaina was kind, available, and always willing to listen. I felt cared for, and understood. I highly recommend Elaina for Divorce and Family Issues.

I have dealt with multiple attorneys for my custody and support battles and Elaine has by far been the best. Very knowledgeable, thorough, and a pleasure to talk to. Shes always got back to me in a timely manner and kept me updated. I highly recommend her if you are gonna start a custodial or matrimonial court battle

She is what ALL attorneys SHOULD be like! Hands down, arguably the best litigator for your rights in the court room with regard to family law and fairness. She speaks from the heart, is extremely passionate, resonates with her clients, and is the best person you can have on your side to argue for your rights. I switched to her after having a prior counselor start my case of which he was not properly advocating for me at all. She came in, once hired, did damage control from my prior attorney, and fought relentlessly for my equal rights as a Dad to be involved in my kids lives. She is true to what is in the best interest for you as the client with regard to your kids as well as handling your divorce. I cannot say enough positive regarding her as not only an attorney but even as a person. She easily relates with you and does NOT stop. Speaking plainly, if you DON'T have her on your side already, YOU NEED TO HAVE HER! You will NOT be let down! She always has your back!

Elaina is very perceptive and has a memory like a steel trap. I had a long, drawn out visitation and child support issue that she handled for me. She’s smart and feisty. My only complaint is that she’s hard to get a hold of.

She has been working on my divorce for two years and has gotten nothing done. There is no parental agreement, no financial separation, no divorce. She has said she’d have things done, documents finalized, etc and months go by with nothing. She feigns sickness stating she has health issues, she goes on vacation and takes a week to respond. I hired another lawyer and will not respond to her. She doesn’t even communicate with the children’s law guardian. I really like how she posts all this father stuff and what in the best interest of the children stuff on her Facebook page but honestly could care less.

I had very high hopes after my first meeting with Ms. Monte. She was recommended by a friend, and was professional, encouraging, and really seemed to care. She developed a plan immediately, and I decided to hire her 2 weeks later and paid the retainer. Once she had my money, getting ahold of her was nearly impossible. After 3 months of waiting and her apologizing for delays but making no action, I got rid of her and requested my retainer fee be returned to me. My new lawyer got done in 1 month what she couldn't do in over 3.

This attorney is friendly and seems to be concerned about your court issues and how it will impact your life until she has or makes up a reason not to. hard to reach half of the time, does not respond to texts or messages once she gets comfortable with you and does not always follow through with what she promises to do. was willing to make her my long term attorney until she proved to be someone different than who she seemed to be at first. once my court issues got better (not with her help as I decided to settle before trial) she did not do anything she said she would do. does not return my attempts to reach her and left me completely in limbo with more to do regarding my case. would not hire her again.

Elaina was recommended to me from a friend. She was a perfect fit. Family Court was something I had never experienced before, and she made it bearable. She is smart, witty and a genius in the court room. She is always well prepared and easy to communicate with. I would definitely recommend her to anyone is need of an attorney.

I was referred to Elaina by a family member and I knew the second I met her she was perfect for the job. She has worked tirelessly to help me navigate through the family court and always is tgere anytime I have a question or concern. Her knowledge and compassion throughout the whole process made this all much more bearable. I have and will continue to refer anyone who needs the BEST family court attorney to Elaina.
