Monica Hardison, Paralegal

Monica HardisonMonica Hardison came to the firm in 1993 and has been involved in every aspect of our cases over the last 20+ years. She came to the firm from the Sonoma County Superior Court, Family Law Department, where she was a certified Superior Court Clerk. During her employment with the Superior Court, Monica graduated from Empire Business and Law School with President’s honors in Paralegal Studies. Monica’s background and experience focuses on the nuts and bolts of family law which complement our team perfectly.

The legal work in Family Law consists of many layers. There are certain legal tasks attorneys must manage and do not turn over to anyone else in the firm. On the other hand, there are many tasks and issues that can be handled by a skilled paralegal to increase efficiency by (1) facilitating the flow of information, (2) allowing the attorneys to focus their time on the complexities of the case, and (3) completing tasks at an hourly rate nearly half the rate of the attorney.

Monica is a member of NALA (National Association of Legal Assistants), the Sonoma County Bar Association, and is a State of California Notary Public. Her outside interests are her family, her two horses and related endeavors, mountain biking, and hiking.

Linda Tavis & her firm guided me through a difficult divorce. It was one of the most challenging times of my life. Throughout the process, Linda reminded me to breathe. She reminded me to focus on my young daughter who had just turned three. Linda was very clear about what I was facing. She offered me options and encouraged me to ask questions. Her staff was always there to respond to my needs and explain the process. I can’t say enough how much it meant to me to have Linda there for me when I needed her. I am eternally grateful.
