Monroe Solomon III is a talented, energetic attorney that focuses on criminal defense. He joined the firm in 2014, becoming a valuable asset with incredible results that prove as much. He has considerable knowledge of the law and all the ways that it can help, rather than hurt, his clients.

Through this clerkship, Monroe gained tremendous understanding of the criminal process from the trial court all the way through appeal.
Now in private practice, Monroe is known for his energetic style as a passionate advocate who is unafraid to step into the courtroom on any matter, at any time, against anyone. His trial experience ranges from capital murder in district court, to conspiracy in federal court, all the way down to class c misdemeanor assault in municipal court. Monroe understands that each case, each client is different. As such, he furnishes individualized focus and preparation to each client.
Outside of the legal practice, Monroe teaches law at the collegiate level at Southwestern Adventist University. His main area of focus is on constitutional development through caselaw; though recently he has started a new program called Law and Order: Hollywood v. Reality which studies the differences between Hollywood law portrays and reality.
Aside from teaching at the university, Monroe is also the faculty adviser for Students for Social Justice Awareness which focuses on what students can do to bring about changes in the community. This program seeks to understand how groupthink and community dynamics can change the way we live our lives. Monroe is helping students find their own voice by providing a platform from which the students can inject themselves into the community.
