Monica was very efficient. We have been in court twice and heading for a third. Monica was able to bring all parties together and came up with a solution without having to attend the third hearing. Case closed permanently!

Best attorney ever!
Stephanie is a no BS attorney, she gives it to you strait and doesn't beat around the bush. This is only half of why I chose her to represent me in my case. Stephanie clearly cared about my case and listened to the specifics. Our case lasted over a year and on our last day in court she still remembered everything from the first day that she had met me. She carefully crafted our entire legal argument around the law and the facts. I can't even express how grateful I am for the strength and guidance she gave me. Because of her knowledge, compassion, and skill I was able to leave our trial with a better outcome than I anticipated.

Divorce Lawer
My divorce could have potentially been an extremely acrimonious, expensive drawn out experience. Stephanie Modica listened to what I wished to achieve and formulated a strategy to obtain my desired outcome. Her advice was straight forward, delivered in a way that was easy to understand and more importantly, accurate. She will not overpromise and under deliver. She will provide you with a path to your goal, ensure that you understand the process and is always available should you have any questions or concerns. Her negotiating skills were evident throughout my case along with the ability to find resolutions rather than escalate disputed information. I had waited 4 years to seek a divorce such was my distrust of the legal system. Stephanie not only restored my faith, she gave me, and more importantly, my children, our life back.

excellent Attorney
I recently had the pleasure of Stephanie Modica handling a criminal case for me. Ms Modica did an excellent job with our case, she was very knowledgeable and kept in close contact with us every step of the way ,ultimately got our case dismissed in 3 weeks. I would recommend her services to anyone looking for a great no nonsense lawyer that's going to get the job done for you quickly. Her assistant Lauren was amazing as well

Ultimate Professional, Attentive and Knowledgeable
From the time I walked into the office for my first appointment with Ms. Modica, I knew that I was in a professional environment and felt at ease with my choice of her as my attorney. Throughout the months that she represented me, she not only took excellent care of the legal portion of my case, but was also personable and reassuring to me as we progressed. Any questions that I asked her by email or phone call were answered in a timely professional manner. Ms. Modica explained everything to me throughout the process and helped me make informed decisions based on her legal knowledge and experience. She kept me updated so consistently concerning each step of my process that I rarely even had the opportunity to ask what would be the next step. As my legal situation is now resolved, I walk away from my experience with Ms. Modica as my attorney knowing that I would use her again in the future with no hesitation and would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone seeking a highly competent attorney. She has my respect and gratitude and I am completely confident in her skills! In addition, her assistant and everyone that worked in the office was a pleasure to work with and enhanced my experience with Ms. Modica.
