Mona was kind and informative from the time I met her. She was very specific of what I needed to do. She is quick and will be helping me next week as she has helped me all this week. I am glad to have her as my attorney.

There are not enough words to express my gratitude to Mona. During my bankruptcy process she
was always available for questions. Gave detailed answers. She always took time to explain to me where we were in the process and what would be happening next. Even after everything was done, she was still helpful in assisting me with how to deal with one of the creditors that was trying to give me a hard time to pay some charges they added after the bankruptcy was discharged. Mona is caring and very responsive and understanding. I will highly recommend her to anyone who needs an honest and caring attorney. She always has time to talk with me when I call, or if not in the office always returned my call. Again I recommend her to anyone looking for an excellent, qualified, and caring attorney.

My husband and I hired this firm when we were in a very critical time crunch. We knew nothing about lawyers, who to trust, if they were reputable, or if they would do the work when we needed it done, or at all. After making some payments and then paying the rest of a somewhat large bill, we needed them to react instantly. Mona rushed our case (with no additional fee) stopped the lawsuit and was friendly and not intimidating. She got the work done and it turned out to be very seamless. I would say that their offices immediately gave me second thoughts. Don't let that detour you. Wonderful people, wonderful "advice line" and never rude. That saying holds true here, "Looks can be deceiving." I am writing this after my case has been completely finished, so as to give an accurate review. Mona put that serious picture up, we're not clowning around!

I really appreciated Mona's fast help and support on my Bankruptcy case. She fit me in real fast to sign my papers to get my money back from a debit creditor who was holding my money... Thank you

Finding a lawyer is probably one of the most stressful things in the world, besides what you actually need the lawyer for. I filed for bankruptcy and having Mona to guide me through everything made it easy and stress-free. She always kept me updated on what was going on and always got back to me if I had any questions. You won't regret working with her!

Ms. Gacutan was recommended to me by a close friend who had been a prior client. My friend raved about the helpfulness and caring professionalism she had experienced when preparing for her bankruptcy filing with Ms. Gacutan. She demonstrated exemplary professionalism and knowledgeability throughout our work together, and was responsive to the particular nuances of my situation. Her wealth of experience allowed her to be effectively strategic about a sensitive timing issue I was facing, and for every question I posed, her answers were extremely informative and grounding as she assessed the legal needs of my situation and recommended the best course of action. After one of the best initial consultation experiences I have ever had, I secured her services without hesitation and found that my stress dissipated immediately. Her expertise impressed and reassured me throughout a difficult and demanding situation. She demonstrated flashes of gracious humor throughout our work together, which kept me grounded and stress-free. I highly recommend this attorney if you are facing financial catastrophe and the reality of bankruptcy. She proved herself thoroughly trustworthy, as she and her colleagues communicated regularly and effectively as they guided me through the steps I needed to take, and followed up as promised, each and every time. I was more than adequately prepared and informed throughout, and I found myself far better educated about my financial situation and the available solutions going forward than I would ever have expected while facing the difficulty of filing for a chapter 7. Through a dark tunnel she was a light and I came out on the other side grateful for the assistance of Ms. Gacutan and her associates.

Mona was there for us when we came to the Washington area. We had an issue, and she made sure we were prepared for what was going tohappen, all of the fees, and potential ramifications for the future. There were no suprises during the whole process. Thank you Mona, you are the best!
