Please don't waste your money. He's a waste of money. He never calls back nor emails back. Not thorough and not welcoming at all. Not worth it at all. DONT DONT DONT USE HIM! No passion for his job.

I was pushed off my bicycle and sustained a 3rd level shoulder separation. I was referred to Monge through an employer benefit (Hyatt).
After contacting this attorney I sent him a copy of the police report, a blow-by-blow accounting of the chain of events, and contact information for the other party. He kept postponing further telephone consult for a week, and when we did talk it was obvious he never read any of the info sent, as he was "surprised" at some of the comments. After we FINALLY agreed that he would send a demand letter, he sent it to an incorrect address and with the other party's name misspelled (those were initially errors made by me and what was on the police report, but corrected clearly and well before he sent the letter), and punctuation was sloppy.
When he decided to not take on the case as a contingency, which I understood since there is no reliable source of his fees relative to the other person involved, I asked if we could talk alternatives at the end of the week since I was to be in classes, he said absolutely. Therefore, I called him on that Friday, and I am still waiting for a return call more than a week later!
I had already mentioned my disappointment in his services and that I would be writing a review and asking my referral source for another attorney , and he called me almost immediately asking me not to and apologized for not being more accurate and communicative. I said ok and he resent the demand letter to the correct address with the proper name spelling.
Time to move on...I need to speak to someone who's head is in the game!!
