Montoya joins the firm’s Sacramento office of family lawyers led by partner Jason Hopper Esq., representing clients in Sacramento, Placer, Contra Costa, and the surrounding counties in Northern California.
Her advocacy for children’s best interests goes back to her law clerkship at the Children’s Law Center of Sacramento in 2013, where she helped abused and neglected children.
Montoya’s undergraduate degree in psychology with an emphasis in early childhood development from UC Berkley makes her a particularly compelling and effective advocate in child custody and visitation disputes.
Montoya said she takes a genuine and passionate approach to representing her clients, combining their conviction with her confidence, clarity, and professional demeanor in matters in and outside the courtroom.
