About me

My clients and their children are my number one priority.  I recognize that the stress of separation and divorce makes for one of the most difficult periods a person will face.  I strive to help my clients transition through that period with the least amount of damage  possible.  To that end, I am a zealous advocate for my clients both in and out of the courtroom while recognizing the importance of avoiding unnecessary litigation.  I am also committed to keeping the children’s interests central to every parenting case regardless of who I represent.

    I knew Monica before she started her legal career and have followed her career since she became a lawyer. She has blossomed into a fine lawyer - one who is both dedicated and hard working. Monica cares for her clients and navigates them through the rough waters that family law many times sees. I endorse Monica's abilities without hesitation.
