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 !!!!

Diane Drain and her staff have guided us through the rough terrain of a bankruptcy. From the beginning of this process, to an end that is quite near, Ms. Drain has provided the highest level of expertise. Her extensive knowlege of bankruptcy law has helped us immeasureably. Communicating with her and her staff has always been easy, swift and the information that is conveyed is very clear and put in layman's terms. She will explain things as many times as she needs to with a good dose of patience. She helped us to pick up the pieces of our lives and to maintain our dignity while doing so. We cannot say enough wonderful things about this gem of an attorney.

Diane & her associates were extremely helpful during a difficult procedure. Her website was replete with information that was clearly explained for a novice and all personal contacts left me with a feeling of understanding and support. I most definitely would recommend her to anyone seeking professional legal advice.

We were amazed at how accessible Diane was. Weekdays or weekends at all times of the day it didn't matter. She was quick to respond to our questions or needs. In short Diane did a great job for us and in record time. If the need arises we will certainly work with here again and not hesitate to recommend her to others.

I wholeheartedly endorse Ms. Drain as a bankruptcy practitioner. She is, at all times, a conscientious and caring professional. Diane is one of those attorneys to whom I refer clients with total confidence that their legal needs will be well handled, and that the client will receive the personal attention they deserve. I have worked with Diane over the last 20 years, and know her to be very well informed in law generally and specifically in Bankruptcy. She is on top of all current issues and technology. She lectures in law regularly, including as an adjunct professor at Phoenix School of Law. Diane serves on the Board of Governors of the State Bar of Arizona, and has participated in numerous committees and sections of the State Bar and other professional organizations.
