“A family member of a good client of mine unfortunately was the victim of institutional sexual abuse. While I very much wanted to help my client and his family, I had a difficult time figuring out what exactly to do with it. While researching other similar matters, I noticed Mr. Monahan’s name coming up frequently. After giving the matter some thought, I reached out to Mr. Monahan and asked him if he was interested in taking the case as a referral. Fortunately, he agreed with my assessment that the case was very strong and he took it on. That proved to be the best decision I could have made with the matter. Mr. Monahan handled the matter with diligence, professionalism and compassion and succeeded in making my clients feel comfortable in what was a difficult, uncomfortable and, almost certainly, sometimes humiliating situation. At the same time, he kept me actively informed of developments in the case and, further, invited me to stay involved in it by attending client meetings and depositions. He succeeded in reaching a good settlement with the institution and one which enabled my client to achieve some sense of justice and for my practice to obtain a good referral fee. I highly recommend that other attorneys with clients with similar matters contact Dan.”

What Our Clients Say

“I truly cannot thank you enough for the due diligence you did in trying to aid a person you do not even know Mr. Monahan. Over the weekend, I was able to gain the help of a family friend to assist me in typing up a document that would meet my needs. As my business continues to grow and expand, I will need the help of attorneys and will be seeking out your business as well as recommending it as well. Kindness shown to those in need is always rewarded. Never change and stay safe in these uneasy times.”
