Monica Cary and her team represented me through an extremely contentious year long divorce. Her knowledge of the law, ability to deal with difficult situations/people, and network of professionals allowed me to propel through the process smoothly. Her skills were complimented by the amazing compassion she has for her clients. During the difficult and emotional rollercoaster of a divorce, Monica was able to provide me with a sense of comfort and security as I entered into a new phase of life. She met every challenge head on while being considerate of my work hours/family commitments and ability to meet and strategize. Monica was surrounded by a talented staff and partner/attorneys who also embraced me during this process. She became and remains a true confident. I am forever grateful and highly recommend Monica Cary and The DuBois Cary Law Firm. ~DCLG Client on Avvo
None of us believes we will travel this path. It is unthinkable, shameful. The ultimate failure. Especially in certain polite circles, where we are told to make great choices and live a charmed life. But sometimes that’s not how it goes. And even after trying to make it go that way or convince yourself and others that you can, this is where you land.
It can be incredibly painful to uncouple. It requires telling yourself the truth. And then undoing everything you spent the first part of your life doing.
I was at this place two years ago and was lucky enough to fall into the hands of Monica Cary, who represented me as my divorce attorney.
I’ll never forget our first meeting. I knew almost instantly I would be in safe hands. Monica got to know my case through conversation, allowing me to guide it, placing the power of sharing information back into my hands. And that set the tone for the next 14 months.
There were ups and downs on the road we traveled. And Monica knew when it was time to exercise a sharp hand, be exacting, and ensure the course was well carved. Equally as important, she knew when to soften the experience by addressing my hurt and shock, as the reality began to set. Those instincts cannot be taught. Monica has them and operates from them in her work.
I am forever grateful to her and her well-coordinated team. I was in their care and, as a result, landed firmly on my feet. ~DCLG Client on Avvo
Monica worked with my elderly father and helped him through a difficult and unwanted divorce. She was very compassionate and sensitive to his situation and absolutely understood all the variables and players involved. She recommended the best course of action while continally engaging Dad to be sure he understood and was in agreement with the plan. She was respectful of budget concerns at all times. She is so warm, caring, personable, unassuming and SMART. I can’t recommend her highly enough! I am so grateful to her for all she did for my father. ~L. Richmond
We arrived at the Du Bois Cary office in September of 2011. We met with Monica Cary and she was such a great listener. She spent a long time hearing the particulars of the physical difficulties my mom was experiencing since being married at 80 years old. She is now 86. We had seen one other attorney but Monica reviewed the information and gave us a plan to get mom into a safer living situation. Monica communicated an amicable solution that resulted in a new living arrangement for my mom and she and her husband are getting along better than ever. Monica represented her perfectly. We could not be more pleased with the outcome. We have become friends with the entire staff at the DuBois Cary group. ~ David, Seattle

Monica helped me get custody of my son when his mother relocated across the country. Many people told me I didn’t have a chance to get custody as a single father in the state of Washington but Monica helped prove them wrong. I am grateful all that Monica and the staff at DuBois has done for my family. ~Chris, Seattle
I am a divorced mom with two young boys. I recently decided I had delayed putting my affairs in order for far too long. Lawyer Monica Cary came highly recommended by a close friend, so I made an appointment to meet with her in person. Monica and her staff were warm and professional and made me feel comfortable and informed. They answered all my questions to my [satisfaction] and put together a very thorough packet of documents that will encompass all of my future needs in regard to my estate planning. I now have great peace of mind knowing this is all complete and my and my sons futures are secure. ~Heidi
Monica was a lifesaver when I most needed a steady voice and knowledgeable guidance through my divorce. From the time my ex-wife and I decided to separate to the final dissolution settlement, Monica always catered her level of help in my case to what I needed, while keeping me informed of legal necessities and options. Occasionally, throughout the divorce process, when I felt like I was at a legal disadvantage relative to my ex, Monica would point out opportunities where I could gain leverage. The truth is, good legal help isn’t cheap, but Monica always kept my budget in mind and gave me choices to best use my money. She was well worth it. Not only was Monica a great choice for my legal representation, but everyone in her office, from the paralegals to the partners, were always gracious and helpful. ~David P., Seattle
