I found Monica in the phone book as my ex-wife and I were struggling with custody terms for our children. Monica was a bedrock of calm and professionalism and was able to make some of our more volatile meetings easier on both of us. I felt very protected and cared for by Monica and her staff. The process of divorce and custody can be extremely stressful and make a person begin to doubt their self worth. Monica on a few occasions helped me make sense of what I was going through emotionally which in turn allowed me to make better and more informed decisions about how best to approach the custody of my children.
I utilized Monica's services 6 years ago and since then I have referred many of my own clients to her. They report that they were able to come to financial settlements far more cheaply and with much less stress than going to court or using separate attorneys. Monica is smart, capable, and motivated to help divorcing couples make good financial agreements in the shortest amount of time possible. I highly recommend her.
Monica Vantoch is a gem. Her calm and compassionate energy helped me move through divorce and allowed me to remain calm during the chaotic and emotional spin-out . She sifted and sorted through the mess, advising me, protecting me, making sure I understood the legal path and my legal rights. My divorce was huge and nasty and an emotional struggle. Monica kept me focused on what I really needed, encouraged me to not give up, keep an eye on my finances, and how to be wary of my ex overpowering me. I was chronically ill at the time, so she reminded me to keep up with my 'homework' and my self-care, I have since become a Divorce Care Coach for women after experiencing the crazy mayhem it causes. Monica's fierce intelligence and kindness has inspired me to do the same for women who are walking the path behind me. If you are in this struggle, I, quite obviously, highly recommend Monica Vantoch as your attorney.
Breaking up is hard to do. Separating the assets and the emotions from the process was one of the most challenging elements of our journey. Monica Vantoch treated both of us with dignity, empathy and no nonsense practicality. She managed to get us to work as a team for a shared positive outcome, versus our attorneys, who had created a hostile and adversarial environment. She is also an expert on the law, as she is a JD herself, so I felt protected during our process. Because of Monica, our financial future is bright, and we are actually friends. Our son is as happy, and as well adjusted as a teenager can be. He is not feeling like the victim of his parent's battle. Ironically, the process of breaking up and the subsequent communication actually strengthened our relationship. I highly recommend Monica Vantoch.
Monica is a fantastic listener, and a practical, talented advice-giver. I am so happy I contacted her. I would recommend her without hestiation.
