Highly Recommended
Monica Stallings was very professional from beginning to end. She was very thorough and was quick to respond to any and all questions that I had regarding my case. She was extremely knowledgable about the law regarding my case and very personable. I hired her based on a recommendation and it was the best decision. I have also recommended Monica Stallings to other people needing legal advice and they were extremely pleased as well. If I ever need an attorney in the future, I will not hesitate to contact Monica to represent me.

A Welcome Rarity.
It is often said among other things, regarding the legal profession, " its not like it is in the movies". Ms. Stallings is not somthing out of a movie, nor is she a reflection of any rote cynicism that may have inspired that disabused cliche. She is however, everything that a real life attorney should be. She is an intelligent lawyer whose gift at counsel is further enhanced by a natural commitment to ethics and an uncommonly compassionate spirit. She listens, she considers the larger implications of the details , she is patient in her explanation of complexities, and she invests herself earnestly in the representation of [me] her client. Ms. Stallings has never given me less than her best and she has never backed away from the best interests of myself and my family. But for all her skill as an attorney it was often her contagious warmth and courage that I most greatly appreciated and relied upon in the face of a process that is often intimidatingly cold and procedural. She is and outstanding attorney. She is an extraordinary human being.
