Representing our Most Vulnerable in cases of Institutional Physical and Emotional abuse


Representing children who have been physically or emotionally injured.

When you put your child in someone else’s care, that person or institution assumes responsibility and is liable for any injuries your child suffers due  to negligence or intentional bad acts… 

At the Law Offices of Marquez & Associates we represent children who have been physically or mentally injured as a result of :  civil rights violations, excessive restraints or discipline, improper supervision, or intentional or negligent wrongdoing. Our firm has extensive experience in litigation and mediation, and can successfully and effectively represent and empower you the parent  to obtain all necessary remedies to which your child may be legally entitled.


Each year, hundreds of general education and special needs children are injured or even die due to negligence on the part of people who have been entrusted with their care. Others are denied special services to which they are legally entitled and/or subjected to bullying and discrimination. If your child has suffered an injury at school as a result of negligence, been denied services, or faced discrimination, you may be entitled to compensation.

We Offer

  • Guidance
  • Legal Counseling
  • Potential claim review
  • Injury prevention consultations
  • Filing and pursuing a case in court.
Far too often, schools fail to meet their responsibilities and requirements for children with special needs. If your child has been injured while at school or if you are concerned that he or she is not getting the services needed, you owe it to yourself and your child to contact our office for a complimentary consultation. We can advise you about your next steps to protect the rights  and make requests on behalf of your special needs child. As a parent who has advocated for her own children with disabilities, Ms. Marquez is sensitive to the needs of parents experiencing the challenge of navigating the school system, and addressing critical safety issues that may have led to your child’s injury. We are a small firm of professionals  knowledgeable about the law, and who are invested in empowering parents to help protect their children who may be hurt at the hands of third parties, schools, child care centers. 


What People Say About Us?

“Monica Marquez was thorough and sensitive in investigating and understanding all of my injuries and financial issues during a stressful time in my life. She obtained all of the medical treatment I needed for my injuries. She was, effective, aggressive and didn’t let the insurance company push me around when they offered a fraction of what I deserved. Her powerful negotiating provided results allowing me to focus on my recovery. I was very satisfied with my results and Ms. Marquez’ representation."

M Clark

“Monica Marquez is an excellent attorney. I had a complex personal injury case that involved multiple medical procedures and surgeries. She made sure I was able to access the care I needed throughout the process, while also ensuring I received a settlement which took into account my needs both now and in the future. Monica and her staff were professional, caring, and kept me informed throughout the process. If I was involved in a personal injury again, I would feel confident having Ms. Marquez represent me.”

M.K. Kovalcheck

“When a driver ran a red light and totaled my car, the injuries left me unable to work for months. With medical bills stacking up, I was devastated to find out the insurance company was using a loophole to avoid paying my claim. Just when I was starting to lose hope, a friend suggested that I call Monica Marquez and I’m so glad I did. Not only did she get the insurance company to reimburse all my medical costs, she also got them to pay for lost wages, emotional distress, and pay all my property damages. Throughout the process, Ms. Marquez was understanding and professional. I’m so thankful I hired her!”
