Los Angeles,

Monique Alarcon is an attorney in the Los Angeles office of Baum Hedlund Aristei & Goldman where she focuses her practice on the firm's medical device cases, pharmaceutical drug liability and consumer fraud litigation.

Before joining the firm, Monique worked as an associate attorney for the law office of Carol A.

During this time, Monique also represented homeless individuals cited for "quality of life" offenses by appearing for and presenting oral argument at arraignments, trials, and post-conviction hearings on infraction and misdemeanor offenses.

Monique served as an extern at Public Counsel's Children's Rights Project and clerked for Disability Rights Legal Center while she was attending Loyola Law School in Los Angeles. She received her law degree in 2016.
