Couldn’t Ask for a Better Lawyer
Monica and a colleague of hers worked with me on a very complicated and contentious case related to my divorce and succeeded in helping me get the financial settlement I deserved. She was tough, knowledgeable, compassionate, and responsive to my calls and emails. I could tell from the first phone call that she would go to bat for me. I would recommend her to anyone going through a difficult divorce.

Incredible Attorney
There aren’t words to explain my gratitude for Monica. I came to Monica at the most vulnerable and terrifying time in my life when my infant became the center of a sudden, high conflict and contentious custody situation. Her knowledge, experience and expertise in family law is apparent from the beginning. Monica posses a great deal of honesty, integrity and ethical practices. Monica is 100% honest in communication, she is upfront about the reality of the situation whether it is good, bad or ugly. Monica’s quick response time and availability to her clients is second to none. I have been with Monica for three years and will remain with her for the next fifteen years.

Monica has been excellent throughout the entire family law engagement. We had very complex legal issues, and she navigated them efficiently and thoroughly. Since my first engagement, I have recommended multiple friends to her. Saying I highly recommend Monica and her firm is an understatement.

Well prepared and capable attorney!
Mrs. Scherer took on my civil case on the 1st of September and we were in court on the 5th of September 2023. She had a no-cost consultation on the first and began preparing a defense the next day. Mrs. Scherer was very thorough and most importantly patient, as she advised me of my options and details pertaining to them. I am very impressed with how well-prepared she was and how she anticipated events and arguments in court. I am pleased to say Mrs. Scherer was successful in having the case dismissed. I will be grateful to her for many years to come.

Monica and her team absolutely nailed it with my divorce case. They were very responsive, explained the process, and helped me make several tough choices. Gathering documents is the worst part and they even made that process easy on me. I would highly recommend Monica!

"Boss B*tch" Knowledgable Attorney that I was searching for!
When I started the journey of divorce after escaping an abusive marriage I had an attorney that didn't understand me and support me the way I needed. About a year into my divorce I was talking to a friend about how I wanted to find a strong, solid attorney to be able to fight for my sons and I that would have our best interest at heart, as well as, someone who understood our trauma and what we had been through since my old attorney didn't seem to and triggered me a lot. My friend high recommended Monica and her firm and spoke very highly of her. This was reassuring to have such a strong referral after struggling with my past attorney so much. The first phone call I had with Monica I knew she was the one to help my sons and I through this complex divorce. She was so knowledgeable, truthful, and had such compassion that I immediately hired her and it was all uphill from there. It was a pleasure working with Monica and I am so relieved it all worked out with her strong council!

Use Monica!
I have worked with Monica now for almost a year on my miserably difficult and combative divorce case. She was easily accessible by phone or email the entire time, patient and compassionate with my angst, completely on top of things (dates, orders) and found every opportunity to move my case forward. She was strategic and ahead of the game the entire process. Straight forward and honest, she provided realistic expectations. She totally rocked my hearing and coached me throughout negotiations to not back down (my m.o.) Her team was on the ball, helpful, supportive and competent. If you want a no nonsense attorney who knows her stuff, is highly experienced, smart as a whip, and has great people skills (and I'm a psychologist saying this)- well you can't do better than Monica!

Excellent care and support, excellent results!
Monica Scherer has been an outstanding advocate for our family. Unlike many attorneys, she responds rapidly to emails, listens to her clients, and focuses on what matters. Should we need an attorney again we would definitely seek her support, and we highly recommend her to anyone else.

Recommendation
Often in the course of business we recognize the contributions of those individuals who greatly contribute to our success and well-being. I am writing to acknowledge and express my sincere appreciation to Monica Scherer who has assisted me with professional and sound legal advice for the past several years. Monica is a very effective communicator who balances candor and sensitivity. She works hard to resolve conflict in a very savvy and diplomatic manner. She offers constructive criticism and exhibits tolerance while being very fair minded, even-handed and flexible. I have witnessed her establish and maintain cooperative working relationships with opposing council while maintaining a standard of performance that does not compromise values. She takes an objective point of view of the circumstances and comes up with options for every situation. Monica has an excellent reputation in the legal community and has been recognized as a top performer. Time after time, my experience with Monica has shown that she is a highly focused individual who strives to get results. She is conscientious and extremely thorough in court and very comfortable during litigation. I am glad she is on my team. I would not hesitate to recommend Monica to my friends and business associates. If you want someone to represent you who is on top of their game, then you need Monica Scherer on your team!

Compassionate Lawyer's
Experienced, compassionate, knowledgeable all around true professional. Monica is extremely knowledgeable in her field. Monica's calm compassionate no nonsense approach made an unfortunate custody case as stress free as possible. Monica possesses a calm and controlled personality and only escalated matters if needed which paired well with my case. Monica is very thorough and articulated well prepared arguments keeping my children's best interest at the forefront of the case. She was fully vested in the best possible outcome. I highly recommend her for all your family law needs.

Absolutely thorough
I retained Monica in my divorce case which I felt was heading to litigation. From the moment I hired her I felt a sense of relief that she had this under control and nothing would be missed. She was ahead of the game in dealing with the opposing attorneys which made me feel secure. She communicated any developments immediately and was always available to answer questions. In addition to being efficient and knowledgeable she is also kind and understanding and appreciates how difficult this awful process is. Ultimately it was my decision not to proceed with litigation as an agreement was reached. I know she felt that we had a strong chance of success in court and with Monica I don’t doubt that. I feel confident that she would have achieved a great outcome for me and I would not like to face Monica on the other side in court!!

Monica is a very professional and thorough attorney.
I would definitely recommend hiring Monica. I hired her to represent me in my divorce. She is tough when she needs to be and was very respectful of my feelings during a tough time. She is patient and thorough.

Big League Lawyer
I contacted Silverman & Thompson through their website email one late evening in August 2019 and to my surprise Steven Silverman replied a few hours later asking for further details about our complex case. After trading emails back and forth he connected me with Monica Scherer. I needed time to retain counsel quickly so I asked Monica if she was able to talk the following day and sure enough she called me the next morning (while on vacation I may add!). We spent approx 1hr talking and I was immediately impressed with her level of knowledge in family court. I can't say enough about how great Monica was to work with. She is a true professional who represented us at very high level. The outcome of our case was extremely favourable for us and we are now able to move forward with our lives thanks to Monica.  She was prompt, thorough and extremely organized, not to mention caring and compassionate. I would highly recommend her for any family law matter. She is a big league lawyer and you can NOT go wrong retaining her. I wouldn't trust anyone else to handle such a critical matter and have full confidence recommending her over anyone else.

Effective, caring lawyer
I hired Monica to represent me in a divorce case. The case was complicated and involved family matters as well as business concerns. Monica and her associate guided me through the process in an effective and highly professional manner. Though my case did not require litigation, I felt that I was in good hands had it come to that. I highly recommend Monica and her team!

a first rate professional!!
Monica Scherer is an attorney with superior organizational skills, compassion, and intellect. I was extremely grateful for Monica's patience, skill, and expertise help me navigate a very difficult and contentious child custody case toward a favorable outcome for me and my children. Monica's attention to detail is impeccable and her diplomatic/negotiation skills with working with the other side are extraordinary. Monica is simultaneously tough and compassionate and always aims to find the best solution to a conflict that results in an outcome that best benefits the children. She puts a great deal of preparation before going to court. She and her entire team are highly accessible and were always available with my questions or concerns throughout my case. She is the best attorney I have ever worked with, in any area of law.

Divorce with child custody
I was going through what seemed like a tough Indian divorce. Monica helped me understand the laws in the US and got my divorce in a more peaceful way than expected.

Professional Review
I was refereed to Monica by a friend when I was seeking a highly qualified attorney. I retained / hired her representation. I can attest that in all categories, she is incredible. She communicates effectively, is highly responsive, knowledgeable and operates with the highest integrity. Most important, she becomes your advocate throughout the process and provides the guidance needed to address your best interest. She is very efficient and provides the best value for the fees.
