Outstanding White collar crime Attorney
On December 18, 2014 had to have been the worst and most scariest day of my life, being indicted on 4 counts, for crimes that I did not commit. Not knowing what to do and where to go Deneen was referred to me by a colleague. The moment Deneen answered the phone she was so kind and so supportive I just knew she was the right fit. Immediately Deneen got to work on my case, and made me feel so comfortable and at ease. Deneen worked extremely hard with my case to get the best possible outcome. She was very understanding, and answered all of my questions. It was very helpful to have her support and comfort in a time like that. I believe it was her dedication that got me the best outcome for my case.

Excellent Workers Compensation Representation
I am so grateful to have found such an incredible firm to work with during a very frustrating and stressful time. Deneen LaMonica went far above and beyond what I could have ever expected. I felt my needs were personal to her and she always made me feel like my case was her top priority. I would highly recommend this attorney and she will always be my first call should I ever need representation again.

Personal Injury
Deneen LaMonica handled a personal injury case for me. From our very first phone call to the day she handed me my settlement check, Deneen and her staff were a phenomenal team. They were professional, kind, kept me updated every step of the way, and answered all of my questions quickly. Deneen fought for a settlement that was more than I could have dreamed of, and won. I cannot recommend Deneen and her team highly enough.

Excellent Lawyer
First of all, I really want to give lots of thanks for Deneen for fighting 3 cases for my family. She was really caring,understanding, supportive and feel for us. my sister case was closed because we did not have transportation and not able to cooperate with previous lawyer because of ride problems and not able to work because of language barriers. But we found Deneen and she understood our situation and she came to us and helped us to fought the closed case. She fought my case, and my brother case. So , I will recommend everybody to use Deneen because she does not care where she has to go or what she has to say , but she will always represents the clients and make happy. and able to work for us . Because of Deneen we were able to win all of our family cases.

above and beyond expectations
Deneen was my attorney for my auto accident where one car was destroyed and two people went to the hospital. She made it very easy for me because she dealt with the insurance companies, Medical Mutual and Medicare in my behalf. I would have been overwhelmed without her expertise.

Deneen Lamonica was really pleasant on the consultations with her, she's tough and has the grit to get the job done, so I hired her as my attorney and I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat.

Difficult MVA
I was hit by a drunk driver on New Years morning. Unfortunately, the person who hit me was an elderly gentleman well known in the community. I had pre-existing health issues that complicated my case even more. Deneen was very hands on working my case. Her compassion of my situation was genuine and her skill of negotiation helped to get my case settled that exceeded my expectation. I would highly recommend Deneen. She is someone you can trust to have your best interest at hand.
