About Courtney

Learn Courtney’s areas of practice.

Upon graduating law school from Roger Williams University School of Law in Bristol, Rhode Island, I obtained my LL.M. degree in Trial Advocacy, specializing in Federal Criminal Defense, from California Western School of Law in San Diego, California. While studying at California Western, I volunteered at the California Innocence Project, an organization dedicated to obtaining the release of incarcerated individuals who have been wrongfully convicted. As part of the LL.M. program, I interned with the Miami Federal Defender’s Office where I assisted in the defense of Guillermo Zarabozo, which is more widely known as the “Joe Cool” case.

Upon leaving my internship at the Miami Federal Defenders Office, I was Of Counsel with the Law Office of Richard C. Klugh where I handled a variety of cases from driving on a suspended license, to driving under the influence, drug trafficking, fraud and murder. I also represented clients in all types of state and federal trial, post-conviction, and appellate proceedings.

In law school, I interned at the Rhode Island Public Defenders Office where I was actively involved in trials, probation violation hearings, and plea negotiations. In addition, I was a member of the trial team and one of the first students to participate in the Pro Bono Collaborative Legal Rights Workshop, a project partnering law students with law firms and community service agencies to present legal rights workshops to the low-income constituents of community service agencies.

I am admitted to practice law in the states of Florida, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. I am also admitted to practice before the United States District Courts for the Southern District of Florida, Middle District of Florida and the District of Massachusetts as well as the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals.

Thorough, professional and straight to the point
I hired Ms. Montiero in October 2016 for my out of state relocation with minor child case. Courtney was very positive and straight forward. She was knowledgeable of the family relocation laws and answered in detail all my questions. She was very respectful and always available to answer your questions or clear your concerns. Not only did she secure a satisfactory result, she was able to do it without breaking my bank. She delivers exactly what she says. I most defiantly recommend her, you will not be disappointed.

I have hired Courtney to handle both mine and my husband's traffic tickets, as well as sent various people to her. She is always very thorough, gives you her time and attention and tells it like it is, which are the best qualities an attorney can have. She has a great knowledge of many different types of law and is an excellent resource when I have had questions about different areas than what I practice. Would definitely recommend her.

Passionate, dedicated, and accessible lawyer
Courtney is the most passionate lawyer you can find. She and I went to law school together and after graduating, she went on to study another year for her masters so that she could be the best defense attorney possible. Courtney knows how to navigate the complexities of the justice system. I regularly consult with her on difficult issues related to court filings and regulations. I have found that Courtney is always available for her clients, keeping them posted on developments and informed of progress. She will be dedicated to your cause.

Quality representation, great fees
I am a client of Courtney Montiero. She provided quality legal representation during a difficult time in my life, and her fees were very reasonable. I recommend her to those in need.

Courtney is such a Great Attorney
Let me explain to you what great service is all about! A person needs something and another person is their to supply that need ten-fold. Courtney took on my case and simply was brilliant. I wish life was as easy as Courtney made it look by having my charges dropped. I had a driver liscense issue, improper left turn ticket, suspension in another state and a bench warrant:(. All of that is gone and I am back to crusing the highway thanks to Ms. Montiero!!! Thank you so much Courtney!!!!

Response from Courtney Montiero April 22, 2015
You are so welcome! It was my pleasure!
Posted by anonymous | January 4, 2015
After an extremely lengthy ongoing legal battle with a family law issue, I switched counsel and retained Ms. Montiero. She enabled me a successful outcome in my favor and closure to a situation that I had begun to think would never end. It took her only a few months to do what my previous attorneys were unable to do in years. If you are looking for an attorney with integrity, passion and strong work ethic, I highly recommend her!

Efficient, Responsive, No Hassle!
I used Ms. Montiero for a traffic issue. She explained the court procedure clearly, kept me informed and was extremely responsive when I had questions or concerns. She knows the system and was pleasant to work with. I will definitely use her again.
