Exceptional Attorney
Monica assisted me with several personal legal matters. She is diligent, professional, and empathetic. I have been more than satisfied with her services. I recommended her to my best friend when he needed an attorney, and he also was extremely pleased with her work.

A Safe Pair of Hands
When the managing partner at the company where I was also a partner decided he had found a pretext to oust me from the partnership and deny me my fair share of the previous year's profits, Monica was the first person I thought of to call. She was thorough in asking all the right questions and was very thoughtful in highlighting what the costs of litigation might be at every step of the way. Having read the partnership agreement, she determined the managing partner had no legal justification for what he was doing. She was also crystal clear on the next steps I had to take - essentially business as usual and ignore the managing partner's threats. It felt counter-intuitive at the time, but she was absolutely right. Then, during the settlement negotiations, I felt safe and with her counsel I stuck to my guns and walked away with an excellent pay off.

Quick assistance received
I contacted Monica when I had an unexpected court date and needed someone to make sure that my interests were respected. I had a positive outcome to the case and credit Monica for my success.

Kudos to Monica
Monica represented my now deceased husband's personal injury case quite well. Although he's no longer around to write this review, I am positive he would have given her the same rating. Even though the case was a small one, Monica still gave it her 100%. The settlement was an unexpected surprise. My husband couldn't praise her enough. I certainly would not hestitate recommending Monica to my circle of contacts!
