Our member of the week is Attorney Monique Eloi who is an associate at the law firm of Jones Day in Miami, Florida. Ms. Eloi graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelor’s of Science, summa cum laude in 2017, and from Duke University with a Juris Doctor, cum laude in 2020. While at Duke, Ms. Eloi was honored for work performed over two semesters in the Civil Justice Clinic, which is a partnership with Legal Aid of North Carolina, in which students work on cases related to housing, benefits, and protection from domestic violence, among other types of cases. Ms. Eloi advocated for clients before both the North Carolina Office of Administrative Hearings and Durham County District Court. She investigated potential causes of action for residents of McDougald Terrace, a Durham public housing complex, who faced possibly health-and even life-threatening conditions.
Ms. Eloi is part of the New Lawyers Group (NLG) at Jones Day, which gives her the opportunity to gain exposure to different practice areas before making a commitment to a specific practice area. She is licensed to practice in the State of Florida.
