Monique took on a complicated medical malpractice appeal for my clients after we obtained a jury verdict. Not only was she successful in upholding the verdict, but it became a published decision that helped define the landscape of California law. For her efforts she was recognized by California Lawyer Magazine as an "Attorney of the Year" for medical malpractice! When I have an appellate issue, Monique is my first choice!!
Hiring Monique Olivier to handle the appeal of a trial I won was easily one of the best decisions I have made in my entire legal career. In addition to being incredibly smart, Monique’s skills and preparation were impeccable. She gave me a tremendous amount of confidence, and did an incredible job in every aspect of our appeal. My clients and I will always be grateful for Monique's superior work, and I strongly recommend her as an appellate lawyer.

I needed counsel ready to interact with a delinquent, low integrity, and untrustworthy employer. I also needed clear guidance on the path ahead. O&S was instrumental in driving the clarity I needed while being both comforting and "no nonsense." Deeply satisfied with my representation, I have recommended O&S numerous times to others in need of employment labor counsel.
Monique Olivier came highly recommended to me by a dear friend. After one meeting, it was clear to me that she was the direct, wise, and earnest attorney that I needed to back me. Monique was accessible and patient with me, particularly with the emotional aspects of my situation, and was able to provide clear and honest counsel. In the end, we were a successful team. I will forever be grateful for her support and advocacy. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
