Excellent Attorney
I consulted with Attorney Montoya after being referred to her by two colleagues. She is a wealth of knowledge and information and took a lot of time to review my case documents and understand my case. She discussed my options thoroughly and it was one of the first times I felt an attorney understood my concerns and advised me of all the possible outcomes without rushing or giving me quick answers without fully understanding the case. If I decide to move forward in the future, I will absolutely be retaining her. It was apparent that she knows her client's cases inside and out, goes the extra mile, and is an ethical attorney.

Responsive and extremely helpful
I am an attorney from another state and was recently in rather urgent need of California family law guidance and advice. I reached out to Morgan's firm and she responded quickly and she was extremely helpful, informative and professional. It was a pleasure to deal with her.

Great consultation
I showed up to the offices of Valenzuela and Montoya to inquire about setting up a consultation. Morgan greeted me, and informed me that her partner was busy with a client, and she was working on a time sensitive task. However she still took the time to answer some questions and provide some guidance.

Morgan was very helpful during an extremely difficult time for me and my son. She replaced my previous lawyer who while not incompetent, did not give me the desired guidance I needed. Morgan has been thorough throughout the whole process and continues to provide excellent representation for me and my son.

Last Minute
I needed to hiring After I had already filed my initial paperwork. She got on top of everything very quickly. I was already headed in the right direction but she just tipped everything off. She gave great advisement on the issues I was having and how I should handle things moving forward. She made things a little more clear for me of what is expected of me in the court’s eyes and gave me peace of mind which is the main reason I went to her. Thank you Morgan!

Family/Restraining Order
I highly recommend Morgan. I was going through a family law/restraining order case. It was emotional/messy and stressful. Morgan made the court system a little less dehumanizing. She comforted me and empathized and explained every single step of the case, so that I understood what may and may not happen. I never felt once like I didn't know what was going on. Before hire she took the time to help me prep my case while I was pro per. After her guidance and generous time given, I hired her. Through the whole process I felt like she was a friend that really cared for my well being but also tactful, realistic and wise. If you have never hired an attorney before, I would hire her to be your first. She is an exceptional attorney.
