Monty & Ramirez is proudly 100% minority owned. Diversity and inclusion have been core values of the Firm’s culture since managing partner, Jacob M. Monty, founded the Firm over 25 years ago. The Firm’s core services focus on two areas. We represent employers in matters involving employment and labor law and maintain a full-service business immigration practice representing companies and individuals.

Our philosophy is to strategically advance our clients’ interests effectively by offering a forward-thinking and outside of the box approach. We are also committed to understanding our clients’ specific business, industry and legal concerns. We keep a constant focus on our clients’ immediate and long-term goals, and our game plan always includes producing innovative, cost-effective solutions for our clients.

The Firm achieves its successful results based on the extensive experience of the partners. The partners have more than eighty-five (85) years of combined legal experience, and the partners who lead the employment and immigration sections are board certified in their respective area of law.
