Monica Zarate


Monica received her BS in Criminal Justice from San Diego State University in May of 2015. Her passion for the law system was reaffirmed as she interned with the Federal Defenders of San Diego, Inc. and the Office of the Alternate Public Defender. She began her paralegal education at the University of San Diego where she obtained her ABA-approved Paralegal Certificate in December of 2015.

After a few months of obtaining her paralegal certificate, Monica became a member of the Naimish & Lewis, APC firm, as a paralegal, to assist in all Family Law matters. Being part of this firm has made Monica become even more enthusiastic and interested in the legal field because she feels that she is making a difference in clients’ lives as they deal with difficult and sensitive situations.
