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.

The Monks is a great law firm and I only need a consultation. He was very informative and even told me the steps I need to take with my case. I am happy with my results. I feel like I can take on the world and if anything goes wrong I know I will have help at any time day or night.

Having Mr. Monks as an attorney and Toni Wade as a paralegal has truly been a blessing! Please listen to me when I say, THEY WILL FIGHT FOR YOU! They have been so dedicated and when they go to court, they mean business! It's not about money with them, they truly care and will actually fight for you and your family. They are not like these other law firms that charge you out the wazoo and sit back and stand idle in the court room, HE SPEAKS!
Toni has always made herself available, even at night. When I had first met Toni she had introduced herself to me and I thought this was not real because just when I was feeling hopeless GOD had placed her in my life and man has my life changed for the better. Soon afterwards, I met Mr. Monks and I knew immediately I had to hire him to represent me. I got rid of my court appointed attorney as fast as I could because the only thing my court appointed attorney wanted me to do was stipulate to things that were either half explained or not explained to me at all.
With that being stated, when I hired Mr. Monks and had Toni's help throughout all of my lengthy conversations, this law firm gave me a VOICE, most importantly, MY VOICE! When they say they treat you like family, they really do. In fact, I feel like they are my family because that's how genuine they are when they handle your case! They have consistently proved that they will not go down without a fight and fight they will! This law firm is a LION and they pack a strong punch. You will not go wrong choosing them to represent you nor would you regret it. Thank you so much Mr. Monks and Toni!

I have been after their office to do a simple will preparation for over 2 months (since mid April 2020). Steve Monks (the head of the business) sent me a form to fill out and assigned the task to one of his paralegals who never initiated a communication. I always kept contacting to make sure they have the information they need to do their job. And no matter what we agree upon in terms of following up, they never call back or follow up on anything. I started engaging the head of the business, he apologized for the delay due to being excessively busy these days, but then nothing happened. That was over a month ago. I sent another email, but no response from anyone there. And until now, I don't have my business done.
