Monserrat is a Sacramento, California native. However, her parents immigrated from Arandas, Jalisco, Mexico in the 1980’s in search of a better future. Through their perseverance, hard work, sacrifices, and guidance, Monserrat became inspired to continue their legacy—through law.

Today, Monserrat has continued this legacy through offering legal services to those in need. Monserrat aspired to become an attorney after she discovered her passion for reading, writing, helping others, and oral advocacy. As a person with a humble beginning, she understands the need for bilingual legal services from reliable people.

“That’s why at A Better Future Legal Services we care about our clients and fight for your rights. We understand that knowing how to choose the legal services right for you can be stressful and might be a new experience. That’s why we take the time to hear your story and offer genuine advice to best help you resolve your matters. We care about you and want to help you work towards your own better future.”

Grecia Hernandez

Legal Assistant
Social work and domestic violence & sexual assault counseling

Hi, I am Monserrat’s Legal Assistant. My name is Grecia Hernandez. Prior to working in the legal field, I have an extensive background in social work and domestic violence & sexual assault counseling which I enjoyed greatly and the love and appreciation from my clients was most definitely mutual. Being an empath coupled with my mother’s teachings to be of service has subconsciously guided me towards career paths where helping others is the focal point. I enjoy being a part of A Bettter Future Legal Services and knowing that my daily efforts help make someone’s life a bit easier by lightening the load brought on by legal situations. Navigating the court system can be daunting and scary which is why we treat every client like family. It gives me great satisfaction to know our collective work makes a positive impact in someone’s life during trying times.

Outside of work, I enjoy road tripping and trying out random foods. I run a cottage bakery called Little Puzzle Pieces Bakery, alongside my youngest son, with a focus on Autism awareness. Immersing myself into a good book coupled with a fresh cup of coffee is my idea of heaven. I am in a mutually exclusive relationship with serial killer documentaries & love collecting mermaid curios! I hope to some day travel to Italy, London, Rome, Asia and all of the Caribbean.”
