Amazing lawyer
Monica is a amazing lawyer she stuck by my side for 3 years and did everything she could to give me hope. I was looking at 40 years and today I’m free . I could not be more grateful for her and Joseph . She so such a great lawyer that even during my trial other lawyers would come in to watch her work and learn from the best . She is the best at what she does . Always calls me , emails, or texts me when I have any questions . She was a former judge , prosecutor, and now lawyer what else could you ask for in a lawyer besides someone who has seen and done it all especially when you’re life is on the line . I would recommend her to anyone she really is a fighter and will be there for you . A prime example of what you should expect when you hire a lawyer.

Abogada en defensa criminal
Contratamos a la abogada Monica Guerrero Para un caso de cargo criminal, fue un caso muy difícil estábamos muy entre la espada y la pared, teníamos muy pocas pruebas de la inocencia de mi hijo y ella y su compañero Joseph hicieron excelente trabajo, siempre nos contestaron nuestros mensajes y llamadas lo más pronto que podían ,no como otros abogados que no contestan y por cada consulta te cobran más ella nos dio un precio y ese fue nunca nos estaba pidiendo más como la mayoría de los abogados que piden más y más y no hacen nada en el caso, ella lucho como toda una Guerrera como su apellido lo dice 100 % recomendada, Dios la bendiga para que siga ayudando a personas en sus casos si pudiera le daba hasta 1000⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️❤️

Monica Guerrero is an excellent attorney. I would highly recommend Ms. Guerrero to anyone who is involved in a complex custody case. She was sensitive to the needs of our family, and was highly responsive to us at a most difficult time in our lives. I am impressed by her compassion and professionalism.

Amazing lawyer & highly recommended
Some lawyers will take your money and run with it or not fight hard for you and im a witness to that but when ms. Guerrero became my new lawyer. She has constantly did the right thing and does everything by the law. Ive had the privilege of her presenting great arguments for my case and it has turned around great

Monica was given my cousins case and it seemed impossible. I felt like we were going to be backed against the wall and it wasn’t going to end well. Our family was devastated. Not only did Monica give it her all, she won. Omg I definitely recommend her. She was amazing. Owe her a debt of gratitude.

Awesome attorney!!!
Monica did an amazing job on our case and put a lot of work into it! She fought to win and believed in us that we were innocent. She is very knowledgeable, aggressive in the court room and listens to her clients and will do what is best for the case, rather it is more work or not, to help win!! I'd definitely recommend her !!

Outstanding and Professional!
Monica provided excellent advice to me and took charge of my legal issues on our first visit. She is a warm and friendly person who gets down to business in handling your concerns and needs. She is super professional and really understands how to put a client at ease. I could not have asked for a better lawyer and was so happy that she solved my legal issues so quickly. Thank you Monica for helping me and for your service to the San Antonio community!

Best Attorney in San Antonio
Monica Guerrero is a wonderful attorney. She helped us get through a CPS case as foster parents of a family member's child. Our case ultimately ended with an adoption and we are so grateful! We cannot say enough good things about Monica's professionalism, knowledge, demeanor or expertise. Monica was always prepared and responded in a very timely manner if we had questions or concerns. She reassured us during times we were losing hope and kept us informed throughout this process. Life can finally move forward. I highly recommended Monica Guerrero.

Confidence & Competence in a Time of Need
Ms. Guerrero took my call late one afternoon to discuss modifications to an existing order on child visitation and support with a hearing set less than a week out. My Ex' demands were far-reaching and unfair (aren't they all?; but in this case it's no exaggeration). Ms. Guerrero's demeanor provided for a calming sense that inspired hope and confidence. Her familiarity with local attorneys and the rules of law and the court helped to quickly put things into perspective. Her counsel was straight-forward and smart. Her availability by phone and her readiness to include me in her immediate schedule brought a sense of relief. She was effective in her communications on the phone, in person, and via text messaging. She didn't attempt to oversell, and indeed, her advice actually worked to save me time and money. While I pray it won't be needed again, I will seek her counsel again if necessary. She's a former judge and is well respected in our community. Thank you, Ms. Guerrero!

Dedicated Professional and Knowledgeable
We were recommended Ms. Guerrero by several friends that have used her for their many legal issues; be it either criminal or family matter and always expressed their complete contentment with her as their lawyer. We hired Ms. Guerrero in hopes of intervening in our foster child’s life and presenting our wishes to adopt. Monica is thorough, educated, and tenacious. She demonstrated her expertise in law, her ability to proficiently present her client’s objectives, and most importantly she is a true advocate of her client. She was available by phone and email and we never felt alone in our fight. She provided us a strategy, asked our opinions, and exhibited a quality that most attorneys would never show… sympathy. I will easily recommend her to all my friends, family, and colleagues if they need a true warrior with a heart in their corner.

Excellent Lawyer
I am writing this review because it helped us to choose her to get guidance and support for our case and I am sure that more people are looking for different attorneys, different options. I can tell them that we did make the right decision calling her. Although she is a very busy professional she was very receptive to our needs. We immediately felt confidence. We describe her as a very professional person but most of all good hearted!

Highly Recommended!!!!!!!
Monica helped us out since day one. We were so lost but she took the time to explain the whole process and how long things were going to take. She Made the time to meet with us at the times that were convenient for my family. When ever we had a question she was always there to answer us. Monica went way beyond our expectations, and we will be eternally grateful. She was able to reduce a 8yr sentence that had to be served in TDC to 5 Yrs probation.
