About Tina

Learn Tina’s areas of practice.

Tina T. Tran (known to her close friends as Ty) is a second-generation Vietnamese American. As an ardent social justice advocate, Tina is committed to providing accessible, affordable, and affirming legal support and advocacy to people of all backgrounds and circumstances. She prides herself on giving her clients the fresh start they deserve, whether that be through filing for Bankruptcy, or through the Expungement and Sealing of criminal records.

Tina grew up in the California Bay Area, and she learned early on about the wide discrepancies between people of different economic or racial backgrounds and their access to the legal system. She completed her undergraduate studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara, where she studied Philosophy and Spanish, then went on to receive her Juris Doctorate degree and Certificate in Advocacy from Loyola University Chicago School of Law. She is licensed to practice law in Illinois and the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.

Upon relocating to Chicago, Illinois, Tina first spent a year in the North Lawndale neighborhood co-teaching and running after-school programs for underprivileged and low-income African American students. While attending law school, Tina became very involved with Cabrini Green Legal Aid, where she represented clients in petitioning for Clemency and applying for Health Care Waivers, as well as those petitioning for Expungements and Sealing of criminal records. Tina has a lengthy background in the area of Criminal Defense, and she has volunteered as an interpreter for Vietnamese-speaking Immigration clients. 

Before starting Needle & Thread Law LLC, Tina worked as a Bankruptcy Attorney in Joliet, Illinois, representing debtors in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy cases.

Great personality, smart, quick and she just makes you feel at ease
I have been dupe in the pass by some lawyers, so I was a bit worry but the minute I met Tina, I new she would be great. Right away she made me feel at ease with her friendly and supportive attitude. She was able to answer any questions I had and her fee was reasonable. I couldn't have gone through this horrible time without her support and guidance. I'm in debt to her for all she did for me. I would definitely recommend her to any one and will gladly use her services again if the need arises. Tina, Thank you so much for all you did for me!

Comfort Is Key
I was immediately at ease with Tina. Our first meeting regarding my bankruptcy was both productive and enjoyable. Tina provided an overview of the process of filing and clearly explained what information I was to provide and when it was due. Communicating with Tina was excellent. She responded to both email and phone call questions in a timely manner with complete answers. I felt so at ease with Tina which made the entire process that much easier. On the day of the hearing, it was clear to me that I made the right decision to hire Tina. Many clients of the other lawyers and firms had never met their representative. The clients were clearly nervous, I know that knowing Tina before the hearing helped me get the decision I desired.

An Earth Angel
Ms. Tran was amazing in helping me with my Chapter 7 bankruptcy. So much patience! She handled my case with so much care and concern that it was just amazing! She even negotiated my current auto loan interest rate down to a more affordable amount. I owe my peace of mind to Ms. Tran.

Bankruptcy Case
Tina was the best person I could have asked for to work on my bankruptcy case. She is kind, patient, honest, and informative. Dealing with bankruptcy is such a scare thing that has a lot of stigma attached to it, but Tina made the whole process manageable. I didn't feel like a failure, and a lot of that was because of the way Tina worked with me.

Well Represented
Tina Tran gets the job done, and cares about her clients. I had never needed the services of a debt lawyer before; she helped me to navigate the process emotionally and legally. She was able to negotiate a great settlement for me from the credit card company that surpassed my expectations.

Compassionate kind and incredibly sharp
I could not have been happier with my attorney. Tina Tran represented me in a case against my former college. She could not have been nicer to me or more professional in the court room. Through her expertise she was able to spot a mistake the other attorney missed and helped me get into a better position. Its hard to know what to do when debt collectors use lies and threats amongst other scare tactics. I spent years representing myself and the stress and physical toll it took was awful. I could not give Ms. Tran andy higher a recommendation.

Seal a criminal record
Before I reached out to Needle & Thread Law office I've been talked with others Attorney, all they wanted your money and asked you pay first before you meet them. Lucky me, I found out Attorney Tina Tran from google search. She gave me a good reasonable price and gave me more details about sealing my criminal record. She was so quick to process my files. And now, I am so happy to hear from her my petition for sealing my criminal record has been GRANTED. I don't have to worry about my employer check my criminal background. Trust me if you guys want to expunge or seal your criminal record please contact her. Nancy

Excellent!
Tina was wonderful to work with and guided me seamlessly through an emotional and difficult process. Tina was incredibly flexible, going over and beyond her duties to support me throughout my bankruptcy filing. I would highly recommend Tina to anyone needing the expert services of a bankruptcy attorney - she always puts the client first and will make sure you're comfortable the entire way through (and is affordable!)

Highly professional and personable
Tina went above and beyond in working my bankruptcy case. Not only did she advise and execute the best bankruptcy filing for me, she also made calls to my car loan company and student loan company to negotiate those terms on my behalf. She was very easy to contact and was very clearly communicative. Tina is a kind-hearted person.
