Excellent Attorney!!
My husband and I have used, Mr. Gary Fuller, for for many years for various legal matters. From complex commercial litigation to simple contract matters, he has never failed to give us excellent advice for both our personal and business needs. He is honest, trustworthy and truly puts his client's interests first. I absolutely recommend his services.

Quick and prompt
I hired Mr Fuller on a last minute situation with foreclosure that was to be executed within 14 days of me contacting Mr Fuller. He assured me that he would get everything in order and not to worry. 2 weeks later the sale was stopped and 2 weeks after that my bankruptcy case was approved and I am at peace and very grateful to Mr Fuller and Tate Bywater for their swift and efficient process. Thank you

Could not have asked for better!!
Mr. Fuller was absolutely wonderful, guided me with kindness, honesty and an amazing sense of concern the whole way thru. His assistant Karen was the best hand holder, she kept me in line, didn't flinch at my repetitive questions or my mix ups, which required her to follow up. They are a top notch team!! I would recommend them to any and everyone!!

Exceptional attorney in Northern Virginia
I had the pleasure of meeting Gary Fuller in conjunction with one of my real estate transactions about 12 years ago. I found his knowledge and understanding of legal issues in his stated areas of expertise to be broader and deeper than the other attorneys I had used up to that point. For that reason, I have continued to use Gary for business and Real Estate matters of increasing complexity. I have retained Gary over 20 times in the last decade in matters related to business, personal and Real Estate Law. In many of those instances the 3 disciplines were interconnected. I will continue to call on him and use his intrinsic knowledge well into the future as the needs arise. In short, I have the utmost confidence in recommending him to anyone that needs intelligent and reliable counsel to navigate their way to successful outcome.

Excellent law firm
I have known James Tate for 45 years and have trusted all the attorneys in his firm. Gary made the experience of having to file Chapter 7 an almost painless thing for me to have to go through. He and his legal assistant, Karen Vasquez, are always prompt with answering messages and emails. I have to say that I would expect nothing less from this law firm.

Gary and his very accomplished assistant Karen helped me save my house long enough to sell it and make a profit. During that time I was treated with dignity and respect, which made a difficult time very manageable. Thank you for your hard work and professionalism.

Great counsel and service
I have had at least two significant issues that required careful guidance and legal help with over the past several years. Gary Fuller and his firm have always made themselves available at the time I needed them, to guide me and provide the documents and support I needed to achieve my objectives. Punctual, practical in their counsel and fair in cost. Gary and the firm have been terrific to work with. Joel

Recommend Highly!
As conservator for a nursing home-bound client in a neighboring county, I was faced with a barrage of overwhelming problems and received absolutely no assistance from the local attorney. Upon receiving a foreclosure notice from the reverse mortgage company on my client's home, which had just suffered arson, I met with Gary Fuller for a consultation and immediately hired him to help with the myriad problems I was facing regarding the property and the possibilities of declaring bankruptcy on behalf of my client. Gary was a blessing. Not only did he take the weight off my shoulders but he dealt with an impossibly frustrating mortgage company with excellent professionalism and patience, explaining each step to me along the way. He even seemed to relish the challenges posed in the case, always maintaining a positive outlook combined with a good sense of humor. With Gary's unwavering help during a difficult and long process, we managed to sell the property to a local developer. I am so thankful to have found him and would have no hesitation in hiring him in the future, or in recommending him to anyone seeking a knowledgeable, attentive, responsive attorney.

An Attorney you can definitely count on and trust
My wife and I spent 4 years trying to climb out of a hole that was created from unemployment and medical bills. We tried negotiating with credit card companies and even went as far as to pay a debt management company for 15 months. We were able to accomplish absolutely nothing… My wife suggested we look into bankruptcy. Scary - very scary…but absolutely the best decision we could have made. Gary and his team were very understanding of the situation and it's sensitive nature. Knowing it is embarrassing, Gary makes you feel at ease through his experience and knowledge of the bankruptcy laws. He not only gave us 100% accurate advice but was able to get us from A to Z without causing any pain to our family. Without Gary and his ability to walk us throughout the process, I would still be drowning in debt. Instead - Here I am with 2 new cars, a credit card that is manageable and about to buy a new home. And its been less than 24 months since my discharge. Gary is now assisting with my estate planning which I'm glad to say I now need. If there is any doubt as to who to call - please do yourself a favor and call Gary. HE WILL HELP.

Empathic and Efficient team
Gary and his assistant Karen helped me with a bankruptcy that I was very apprehensive about doing. They met with me whenever I needed to- were extremely responsive to my often incessant emails. They worked around my schedule and met my every need with accuracy and care. It was such a pleasure working more closely with Karen to obtain the needed information and finally upon the day of filing, I met with Gary and he was able to comfort me and walk me through the process step by step. I felt very comfortable in their office- the receptionist was always friendly and accommodating. Overall, I'd gladly refer Gary and his team and rate their services as excellent. It was not only a weight lifted off my shoulders when I completed the filing, but it was their warmth and concern that left me with the feeling of relief, that I have good people backing me up.

Excellent attorney
I retained Gary to handle several legal matters for me, including a rather sophisticated estate matter and a real estate transaction. There were significant issues with both matters that, but for Gary's expertise and knowledge, would have gone very poorly for me. I would recommend Gary to anyone who needs a sharp attorney who really works hard for his clients.
