I have just recently received my Chapter 7 Discharge of Debtor from the US Bankruptcy Court and I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to Ms. Drain for the excellent work and support that she provided me during my bankruptcy. From the abundant information on her website, to the answering of all of my questions, she turned a personally upsetting situation into a bearable journey. No matter what my questions were or how many questions I had, she took the time to patiently answer them in a timely manner, whether in-person or by email. She also explained them in a way that was easy to be understood, and if not, took the time to answer them again until I was able to fully comprehend the answer. Finally, when I was asked a tough question at the Meeting of Creditors by the Bankruptcy Trustee and I didn’t answer in the best fashion, she was there to provide the necessary simple response that clarified my situation such that the Trustee had no further questions. I was extremely fortunate and blessed that I obtained her as my legal counsel and I would highly recommend her to anyone considering bankruptcy.
Thank you again Ms. Drain!

My wife and I would highly recommend Diane Drain to any one who is considering bankruptcy. She handled our case professionally and in a very timely manner. Diane and her team made a long, frustrating process pretty painless.
Thank you Diane!!

Simply put, Ms. Diane Drain knows her stuff and you certainly want somebody of her caliber in your corner when the chips are down. It is a great privilege and a greater comfort to have her in mine. I have made some bad choices along the path of life as most of us do. Its all part of lifes lesson. However, the choice I made to select her as my attorney was no doubt one of the best decisions of my life to this point. Call her...call her now and get control of your life back...I did!!! I promise you will not be disappointed.
Thank you Diane and thank you Jay !!!!

We filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy and the whole process went very smoothly from beginning to end. This was thanks to Ms. Drain who was caring, professional and committed to making sure that we fully understood the bankruptcy process. She kept our best interest in mind at all times. We will definitely recommend Ms. Drain for anyone's bankruptcy filing.

I first met Diane Drain in September 2008 when she agreed to represent me in my Bankruptcy filing. It was a difficult decision for me as I had always had outstanding credit and prided myself on being responsible and trustworthy. But, with my marriage of 30 years ending, the housing market sliding (I was upside down in the home), I had spent most of my savings and resources just to keep my head above water and then, I started sinking financially into a bottomless pit of debt. Bankruptcy was the best solution for me and that was a hard realization.
Diane Drain handled my case with a wealth of knowledge and expertise. She kept me informed in all aspects of the case as it moved through the Court system. My Bankruptcy was discharged in Jan 2009 and Diane had advised me of the negative changes that would occur to my credit report. She also educated me, that the BK was a fresh start and my credit could be rebuilt with hard work and patience on my part.
I want to inform others who may be going through the bankruptcy process, that with time, hard work and informed financial decisions, you can climb out of the lowest financial point in your life and achieve the highest point again. In the 3 years since my Bankruptcy, I have worked my credit score back to 700+, I purchased a new vehicle in Oct 2011 and I just closed on a new home and mortgage in May 2012.
All this was possible by the knowledge, skill and expertise Diane Drain has as a Bankruptcy attorney.
To Diane I again say thank you.... You have help me once again attain the American dream.....

Filing bankruptcy was not an easy decision but Diane made the whole process very easy and understandable. As a client you have a lot of control as to your personal outcome. Be diligent, do the homework, and complete all the information (and there is a lot of it) as requested. At age 60, this was the last place my wife and I expected to be at this time in our lives, but Diane was very concerned and compassionate and didn't make us feel like failures in life. We made mistakes but thanks to Diane we are already on the road to a better future. Recommended without any reservations. thanks Diane!

Diane and staff made us feel very comfortable working through this process. We also felt that Diane and her staff were genuinely concerned about our situation.

She and her team are responsive, knowledgeable, efficient, trustworthy, good communicators, detail-oriented, well-connected, caring and compassionate. They provided a balance of head and heart combined with expertise and appropriate action to get it done.
Being a well-established lawyer, when issues came up that were not directly in her area of expertise, we received excellent referrals. The process was smooth and easy. Not a single problem with our experience. Everything was positive.

I left a message with Diane's office to schedule a consultation for a difficult legal situation regarding debt and possible bankruptcy. Jay called me back after normal business hours to discuss nature of my case. My case did not fit into their normal casework, but Jay spent 20+ minutes on the phone with me giving me some free advice. The next day, I got another phone call from Jay. He had discussed my case with Diane and wanted to offer one more piece of advice from her. If that doesn't speak for the quality of their operation, I don't know what more I could say.
