Fantastic Attorney
Ms. Rawlins represented me in a paternity action and I was very happy with her work. She is sharp--she has all the relevant statutes memorized and can cite them off the top of her head. She is meticulous in her writing and detail-oriented. She comes to hearings and mediations well prepared. She is ethical and reasonable in her billing practices. She is well-respected by other attorneys. With her, you get the caliber of an expensive large firm attorney at a much more affordable rate. I've already referred several people to her and will continue to. I would definitely hire her again!

Would Hire Again!!!
I have worked with Ms. Rawlins on two separate occasions. She was very responsive to my questions and answered them in a timely fashion. I appreciated her ability to be compassionate and candid at the same time. I consider her to be an individual with integrity because she never made any promises, she reviewed the information and provided me with the best options and potential outcomes. Simply put the legal guidance she provided was sound and I would hire her again.

Highly Recommended!
Monica Rawlins was more than exceptional! She's very knowledgeable, professional, helpful and prompt with the whole process. Her payment plans are more than affordable and her services to my family and I can not be beat! Monica most definitely sought justice and closed a legal chapter in my life that I battled with silently for years.

Best Lawyer!
Ms. Rawlins has helped me since December 2014. As soon as I hired her, she immediately started my case and got me a court date to start my custodial battle with my ex as soon as possible. It was a long process but I was confident especially with Ms. Rawlins presenting me. I won sole managing conservatership. I have and would absolutely recommend her to everyone. I am forever grateful for her.

Job well done
I worked with Ms. Rawlins on a child custody case. She was very thorough and timely and conducted herself with professionalism and consideration to all parties involved. She is well versed in family law and I had no problem following her recommended path of action for my case.
