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!

Mona helped me to obtain my Drivers License back, sending the appropriated documents to the court houses I owe money to. It has been a number of years since I had the privilege of driving. Thanks to Mona's, time and hard work, she helped me to obtain my goals.

During a very difficult time in our lives, we hired Mona. We had two homes and a lot of debt. My husband wasn't working regular hours. We tried to maintain the pace and keep current on all of our debts, wiped out our savings, borrowed from our 401K , and finally had to give up the battle. We knew our 810 FICA would suffer, but had no choice. We filed Chapter 7 and hired Mona. Mona is professional, knowledgable, efficient, an excellent communicator and also friendly and easy to work with! She took us through the process step by step, responded to my numerous emails, and kept us informed along the way. In a dark time for us, Mona was there every step of the way. If you find yourself in a similar situation, be confident that Mona will be there for you and will cross the t's , dot the i's, so there are no surprises when your Court date arrives. Mona made a very difficult personal situation much less painful . You will be glad you hired Mona!

My husband and I tried to avoid bankruptcy, by being in a debt settlement program. We'd paid of half of our debt, however I was being sued by one of the credit cards we owed on, and my bank account was garnished. We had already started the bankruptcy process, but was going to pay off our retainer fee after I went back to work from maternity leave. She sped up our case, was very clear and informative on the info that she needed to do this for us, and got us in to finish this within days of our garnishment. She was even able to get our money back!!!! She communicated with us to let us know the status of our case.
