Family Law

Nothing in life is more important than family, and few things are more taxing than a breakdown in the family. At Monks Law Firm, PLLC, we pay particularly close attention to your needs and have your best interests at heart.


Criminal Law

A criminal charge of any kind is not just daunting – it can haunt you for the rest of your life. To effectively protect yourself, you need a legal team with an exceptional criminal law background and plenty of resources.



We represent clients before the USCIS and provide guidance in matters relating to immigration, naturalization, visas, citizenship, asylum, work permits and removal (also known as deportation). We do not handle employment-based immigration matters. We can assist you in the interpretation of and compliance with all immigration laws as well as inform you of your rights and immigration opportunities.

Statewide Traffic Ticket Defense

We assist clients in ALL COUNTIES in North Carolina. We believe that people want three things when it comes to seeking the assistance of a lawyer with their traffic ticket. 1. They want to minimize or eliminate insurance points. 2. They want to minimize costs. 3. They want to minimize hassles. We will provide the same level of care and dedication to handling your ticket as we would handling a much more serious offense. And, for many people, especially CDL drivers, ANY ticket is a serious offense. 

Simple Wills

Give your loved ones the peace of mind of having your will, power of attorney and other estate documents prepared in advance.

I contacted Monks Law Firm because my son got a speeding ticket while visiting NC last year and never paid the fine. We live in Maryland and his license was going to be suspended if he did not clear this up. I spoke to Jeimy Parra who was great. She explained the process and it was so easy. Monks represented my son and his case was closed in about 10 days. The best experience. Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!

I contacted Monks Law Firm looking at the excellent reviews on Google. Steve is extremely rude. His firm was supposed to draft an agreement for me and after 1 hour of talking to him and sending him a very detailed follow up email of the terms of agreement, they promised to get it done in 10 days. After 10 days, all i get is a generic document that he could've given it to anyone without any specifics of my terms. When i called to check on it, he was fiery and rude and being extremely passive aggressive trying to be defensive about missing his deadline. More than the agreement not being done, i was upset at how rude and unprofessionally he spoke. I would never ever go to him again and advise others to stay away from him too.

I received a speeding ticket which was really bad. I was really concerned and my initial conversation put my mind at rest (but I was still worried). The attorney gave me his plan of action and he did as he said. We closed my case this week and although dismissal was out of the question I got a end result better than I thought. Attorney Wells came right in and got me in out of the court in a matter of minutes. I would deal with Monks Law Firm again if I needed good legal support.
