Monique Love­day

Senior Associate
Fam­i­ly Law

I am a pas­sion­ate and moti­vat­ed Fam­i­ly Lawyer who strives to put my clients in a posi­tion where they are able to make the best deci­sions to move for­ward into the next stage of their life.

I adopt a more hands on approach for my clients and pro­vide cre­ative solu­tions to what would oth­er­wise appear to be com­plex issues. I am a set­tle­ment focused lawyer and under­stand the impor­tance of pre­serv­ing rela­tion­ships how­ev­er should lit­i­ga­tion become nec­es­sary, I am also a deter­mined and focused litigator.

I coach my clients through all stages of their fam­i­ly law mat­ters. I am by their side every step of the way. I take pride in all my mat­ters and adopt a col­lab­o­ra­tive approach wher­ev­er pos­si­ble. It’s a team effort.
