About Monica

Learn Monica’s areas of practice.

Born and raised in Bakersfield, I am proud to assist my hometown community. I graduated from Foothill High School and then attended Bakersfield College. I earned my degree in English from Fresno State and my Juris Doctorate from San Joaquin College of Law. Returning to Bakersfield to serve the community was always my goal. I passed the State Bar of California in 2010 and since then I have volunteered for many organizations including The Kern County Bar Association's Women Lawyer's Section, Kern County Young Lawyer's Section and Kern County Criminal Defense Section.

I am formerly with the Tulare County Public Defender's Office and The Law Office of David A. Torres. I am a graduate of the National Criminal Defense College and the Gerry Spence Trial College.

Through my years of legal experience, I have grown to understand the complexities of our legal system. More importantly, I understand the community I was raised in and I understand the needs of my clients.

PPP LOAN APPROVED
I had eviction removed from my credit report, and I still can’t believe PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST raise my credit score to 809 Golden score within few days. He also helps me apply for ppp loan with the sum of $40k which reflect in my bank account with a low interest rate. I saw a lot of good comments about his good works and He would respond swiftly. Hire him: [email protected] OR call +1 (585) 466 4373.

Top attorney
Ms. Bermudez is an excellent attorney who goes beyond to represent her client, as she did in our case. She is not only keenly aware of the law but also connects with her client in a personal manner that allows her to fully be ware of the special circumstances surrounding each individual case. Thank you!

Thank you God for putting attorney Monica Lara Bermudez in my way!
I strongly recommend attorney Monica Lara Bermudez. Ms. Bermudez and her staff is reliable, trustworthy, and caring. I had an attorney who bailed out on me a month before my interview with USCIS. Because of brother's criminal charges that were mistakenly placed with my fingerprints; she claimed that the case was too difficult and she wasn't sure of the outcome because the matter was in another state. I went to Ms. Bermudez and explained my situation to her and she agreed to take my case. Monica hit the ground running, and was able obtain all the documents i need from KCSO, and instantly I knew that I have found the right attorney, because my previous attorney was never able to get all the documents i needed to prove my identity. Additionally, Monica was able to gathered up evidence to show that i was never arrested in Kern County. Also, she presented evidence showing that i never even lived in California. Ms. Bermudez and her staff worked tirelessly day and night to obtain every documents and dispositions that were in question by USCIS. She basically led me by the hand all the way to the finish line. Today, I am here to say that a guy from Jamaica with a few brushes with the law is now a citizen of the United States of America, and I owe it all to Monica Lara Bermudez and her staff. Ms. Bermudez, Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
