Detail oriented contract examiner
I had the pleasure of hiring Attorney Monique Miles to review an employment contract. Her service and communication is professional, timely and she examined each word and phase of the contract in exacting detail.

She is Inspiring and Unrelenting!
I did a lot of research for a lawyer for my counter-defense. I was coming up against a company that has repeatedly taken advantage of employees and has won multiple lawsuits against many different firms in the area. It all felt so overwhelming. The day I met Monique, I knew I was in good hands. I hired her to initiate a countersuit against the company suing me. She treated me with care, empathy, and respect. Her work is professional, meticulous, and unrelenting every step of the way. Her firm worked tirelessly working through a complicated company situation and made it a clear-cut win in court. The way Monique can extract testimony from the difficult plaintiff, and company heads was incredible. With each question she asked, we gained everything and more to win our case. I was proud to have her by my side, and even when I was testifying for hours I had no fear because I felt like we were a team on the same page. I can tell she loves her work, is well respected by her community, and the passion she brings is inspiring.

Ms
I was recommended to the law office of Monique Miles ( Old Town Associates )by a friend. The law firm was very diligent and efficient with my case. I was kept up to date on everything involving my case and was treated in a very respectful manner. I was also asked if I had questions during every phone call or when meeting in person and I was educated on everything that we were proceeding on doing and what it would mean. I trusted Ms miles from the beginning and was not disappointed. She’s a confident and experienced lawyer. My case was emotionally exhausting Monique was my therapist and a lawyer at the same time she made me so comfortable and understood. This is during the pandemic she went above and beyond to resolve the matter with my previous employer. I strongly recommend Ms Miles for any sexual harassment or employment issues. It was a pleasure working with you Monique thank you.

Fearless
I hired Ms. Miles back when I first got unlawfully terminated from my job. She explained in detail what was going to happen, how long it may take and everything in between. Not only is she a terrific attorney, she is a straight fighter! She has given me justice as well as closure to a 5 year ordeal. I cannot thank her enough.

Thanks to Monique
I found Monique Miles during my search on google to review my Agreement going between me and my previous employer. She provided many suggestions to my previous employer to update agreement, and now agreement become favorable for us. She was continuously in touch with me, answering my questions, and always provided her suggestions for next step. I was financially not strong but she supported me, and her knowledge in subject is very strong so we resolve case within few days. She is very nice and her staff is very supportive. I appreciate her hard work she has done for me.

Employment Law Assistance
A friend of mine referred me to Monique in order to better understand a non-compete agreement that my employer wanted me to sign. Monique took the time to meet with me and explain to me the scope and effect of the agreement. She reviewed the legal precedent and gave me a concise, well-reasoned legal opinion. After speaking to Monique, I had the confidence to approach my boss and ask for different terms. If you have an employment law issue, Monique is the advocate you want on your side.

Outstanding Service
I unfortunately found myself in need of an attorney due to problems in the work place. I engaged the services of Old Towne Associates. Mrs. Monique Miles represented me in my efforts to bring my case to a satisfactory resolution. I can honestly say that I am more than pleased with the representation that I received. Mrs. Miles was extremely professional, thorough and very meticulous with all aspects of my case. Time lines were met and documentation was accurate. I would not hesitate to use Monique or Old Towne associates again should the need arise. I appreciate all her efforts in resolving my case.

Positive Memorable Experience
Monique Miles has a wealth of legal knowledge. She litigated a case for me that took about 4 months. She stayed on top of the case and always several steps ahead which was apart of her critiqued strategy. I never doubted her because she gave me confidence that we would win and we did.

What a wonderful experience!
Legal cases can be emotionally taxing and exhausting. I wasn’t sure how to approach my situation, so I reached out to Monique Miles. Ms. Miles was an intelligent, supportive, and professional attorney throughout the entire process. She made me feel understood, that my case was important, and explained everything I needed to know step by step. She took care of all of my concerns which put me at ease and let me know that I was in good hands. The incredible confidence and calm demeanor that Ms. Miles possesses was constantly reassuring. I am grateful for the experience that I had with Old Towne Associates, P.C. and would recommend Ms. Miles to anyone in need of legal assistance. She truly made a situation that was difficult to experience into something that was empowering.

Exceptional Attorney With Impeccable Character
I was referred to Ms. Miles by another attorney that could not take my case.  At that point, I was feeling so beat up and abused by my employer and I had no hope.  Ms. Miles met with me and she changed my whole outlook.  She was concerned about my case but she was also concerned about my wellbeing.  Not at all what I expected from an attorney.  Ms. Miles gave me scripture to meditate on and each time we spoke she reassured me and told me that she was praying for me.  That was exactly what I needed at that time in my life.  Her kind words, prayer, and encouragement got me through a very difficult time in my life.  Ms. Miles worked diligently on my case and we were able to settle out of court with nearly all of my demands met. And I was able to keep the job that I love.  I so am thankful for Ms. Miles' skill, intelligence, and her caring heart.

Warrior Attorney
Monique is an excellent attorney. She was the only Attorney who took my case, when I gave up looking for attorneys. My case was Pro Se, and I was fighting my case alone until Monique took my case. I contacted attorneys in Reston, D.C. Fairfax, Arlington, MD, and on this page "AVVO" I looked for Attorneys. None answered me. I saw attorneys with some amazing profiles but when they asked me the other party who were they? Pufff all disappeared. It's not worth having a lot of writing blah, blah, blah if you do not recive clients. On this page there are many bad Attorneys! My case was not easy, Monique was fighting with five Attorneys. She alone fought my case. My employer had 5 attorneys, they wants bend the rules and rights. She did it! Monique is honest, strong, and clear. I recommend Monique A. Miles because it is not like others attorneys who want to steal money from people. She first wants to know by telephone, and once I speak she wanted to consult me. She took my case and she won the case. I was so freakout with my case. Thanks Monique without you, I would not have made it. God bless you

Communicative, compassionate and assertive
No one ever wants to "need" an attorney, but when I found myself in a difficult and daunting position with a former employer of 16 years, it was important for me to locate an attorney outside of the small town politics that I reside in. I was relieved and thankful to have connected with Ms. Monique Miles who instantly made me feel at ease. From the initial consultation through each of the challenges in my case leading to the conclusion, Ms. Miles has been an incredible team leader. She is consistent, knowledgeable and experienced, communicative, compassionate and supportive. She is calm yet assertive and her professional expertise provided the appropriate guidance and comfort I needed to fuel me from beginning to end of a nearly two and a half year ordeal with a large educational institution. She never lost momentum and confidence in me or my case while maintaining integrity and honesty throughout. If she is confident about taking your case, I absolutely recommend Ms. Miles as a most competent legal representative. Thank you, Ms. Miles for seeking resolution and bringing me closure and peace of mind. JK Front Royal, Virginia

Wrongful Termination
I retained Monique Miles to represent me in a “wrongful termination” against my previous employee. She was able to resolve this matter in less time than estimated with the MOST favorable results. She was thorough in explaining each step to me, answering my questions and offering recommendations that were in my best interest. “From my first call to the practice, Monique and her staff displayed professionalism and a commitment to customer service. Phone calls were returned promptly, fees were discussed up front and were reasonable, and I was kept updated on the status of my case. She is/was relentless, confident, impressive, and knowledgeable. I think GOD for her hard work and support. I highly recommend Ms. Monique Miles and most definitely would use her services again. CG, A Former Client

Exceptional Employment Attorney
I retained Ms. Miles to represent my interest in a separation agreement after reviewing the various options in the northern Virginia area. Her professionalism, dedication to her client’s cause, and knowledge in employment law are bar none. I am exceptional grateful to have found Monique. Ms. Miles dove into the details of my complicated situation, conducted a thorough review of my documentation, and the materials from my former employer. She was focused and determined to achieve the best results for me as a result of my breach of contract. Her meticulous nature caught errors in my employer’s documentation and identified problematic language. Monique identified strong legal claims that added to my argument beyond what I knew existed. She brought me a swift resolution above what I thought possible. If I ever have employment law needs again-she is the only person I will call.
