I've been a trial attorney for nearly 20 years, and have defended every type of criminal case. I have the experience, and the experts to assist you in the best way possible. Not only do I have the experts, but I have actually studied DNA, forensics, and Intellectual Disability along with preparing the case. I do not depend only on my experts but take responsibility for learning the subject matter. The investigators I work with are top notch, and have worked with this office for a long time.
This office has defended in almost every county in California. We are qualified to practice in Federal Court as well.
I am Death Penalty Qualified by the Court. That means I am ready and qualified to defend the toughest case criminal defense has to offer. Not many attorneys can claim that a judge ruled them competent to lead a death penalty case. I've also argued in front of the California Supreme Court, early in my career in a matter associated with the OJ Simpson Case.
Whether you have a death penalty case, murder, drugs, gang, sex, white collar or a general misdemeanor matter, this firm should be called before you contact anyone else. This law firm has appealed trial court rulings in the middle of the case. One of my cases went to the California Supreme Court, with me right there.
I will accommodate any budget. Not everyone has unlimited finances. Not all attorneys understand that fact. We do.
We are a 24 hour law firm. Our answering service is a 24 hour bi-lingual service that accepts collect calls from in custody.

I have worked with Monique on several cases. Her knowledge of the courts in Ventura and relationships with the court personnel are a valued asset. She probably knows her way around the local courts more than any other lawyer in her area. She is great to work with.
