Being adopted myself, I am passionate about adoption and family formation. I am continually grateful for the honor to work with families and children and to use the law to support and advocate for them.

I love living out my dream of practicing law and uniting and supporting families through adoption and children’s law. My mother explained to me at a very early age that I was adopted and what a beautiful gift that was. She explained that my birth mother had made the ultimate, loving, and sacrificial gift for me by choosing to give me life and family. And in doing so, she also gave my mom, dad and brother a cherished gift by giving them a daughter and a sister. I grew up feeling loved by my adoptive parents and loved by the birth family that so lovingly sacrificed for me. I love working with birth mothers and adoptive parents who all have the best interest of the child in mind.

Incredible level of support for our case!
We were referred to Moore Law and to Monica in order to resolve a Social Security number situation for our son, whom we adopted from China 5 years ago. From the outset, Monica went above and beyond, and in our case, the process took over a year and a half to conclude. This was due to its complexity and also the impact of Covid-19, meaning that the courts were not open, and nothing would have happened had Monica not gone to bat personally for us to push this through. I should add that we are now located in the UK, and cannot travel, so without Monica personally shepherding this process, we would not have been able to travel to get the SS number once we had the CA court adoption papers. Monica was caring, understanding, professional, and ingenious in coming up with ways to resolve our situation. We highly recommend Monica and Moore Law for any child/adoption legal services that anyone might have. Thank you, Monica, so much!

Monica has our endorsement!
Monica was very responsive when we first contacted her and made our entire family comfortable when we met in person. After that first meeting, we felt that she would be very supportive leading us through this extremely emotional time, but before we hired her we did our due diligence by checking her background and references just to make sure we’re making the right decision . Throughout the entire process our initial impression of Monica solidified . Whenever we contacted her with a question or concern she responded almost immediately . She knows what she’s doing, pays attention to detail, and also provides considerable emotional support. We would recommend Monica to anyone in need of the services she provides.

A Great Experience!
We had hired Monica to help navigate the adoption process with as little headache (for us) as possible, and Monica went above and beyond what we expected. There was very little we had do outside of sign paperwork and make ourselves available for court dates and interview. And every step and every snag Monica was there to take care of it. Even things that did not have to directly with the adoption, as when we were having difficulty getting my son's passport renewed, she was of invaluable assistance. We were, at the beginning of the process, wondering if we should try and spare the expense of a lawyer and try and get through the process ourselves. At the end of the process, I was very happy we decided to go this route. Monica was able to streamline the process and handle this very cumbersome and byzantine system for us. Very satisfied with the result.

I called Monica last minute trying to find a lawyer for a private adoption without a completed homestudy. She was able to work with my financial situation and get the paperwork to me and filed at the hospital within 24 hours!! She helped me get the social worker and psychologist I needed for the birth mom. I was also assigned a state social worker to do the homestudy after the fact. Monica was a true life saver!! She made this whole process joyful and helped me become a Mom!

Knowledgeable, Helpful and Supportive
Monica was a blessing to my family while we were adopting our daughter. Our road to finalization was full of twists and turns and Monica was there every step of the way. She provided valuable advice and excellent explanations for the many questions we had at each step of the process. Her compassion, kindness and support showed in every phone call/email and it was obvious that her top priority was the well-being of our daughter and family. By the end of our journey, Monica became a trusted friend in addition to being an excellent attorney. I would highly recommend her services to anyone in need of legal assistance with their adoption.
