Monica’s curiosity for litigation began in the early 90’s when she became an investigative assistant for a local private investigator. Monica started as a secretary, imputing data and distributing legal documents to a team of process servers. Her duties quickly morphed into skip tracer as Monica realized she had a unique skill set in locating individuals and ferreting out their personal information through online research and public records.
In 1999 Monica began the Paralegal Studies program at Humphrey’s College. Her investigative skills helped her to excel in her legal research courses. As part of the course, the class was divided into teams and given a set of facts and told to find the corresponding case law, which was designed to be “a needle in a hay stack case.” At one point, her professors had to remove her from her research team and give her individual research assignments because she was locating the case law too quickly. Monica graduated at the top of her class in 2000.
Upon arriving at Triebsch & Frampton, Monica quickly moved up the ranks from receptionist to assistant, to paralegal and earned herself the unofficial title of in-house investigator. Monica’s investigative skills are particularly useful in locating personal information of “at-fault” parties in personal injury cases as well as asset investigation and enforcement of judgments. Monica is a detail conscious, dependable, resourceful, self-motivated individual who adapts easily to new and changing situations.
Monica was born and raised in the almond industry of Central Valley. She currently resides in the Turlock area with her husband and son. In her spare time, Monica enjoys reading, cooking, playing poker and target shooting.
