About me

The Law Office of Donald R. Oder was
founded on the principle that client satisfaction is more important
than short term financial gain. We believe that this commitment will lead to long and rewarding associations.
Attorneys can and should provide the highest quality legal
representation at affordable rates, and they should do so in a way that
does not intimidate clients. After ten years in the litigation
trenches, attorney Donald R. Oder has seen first-hand the impact
involvement in legal matters has on individuals and business of all
sizes. Too often attorneys caught up in the pragmatic realities of
their work lose site of the client’s evolving needs. At the Law Office
of Donald R. Oder, we are committed to providing our clients
outstanding legal representation in a relaxed and inviting environment.
We believe that our clients, in choosing our firm, invest more than
just money. They invest their trust in us. We are convinced that
regular communication with our clients and a commitment to excellence
are the best ways to ensure a maximum return on our clients’ investment.


Founder attorney Donald R. Oder received his B.A. in Economics, magna cum laude,
from the University of California at San Diego in 1996. At the
University of California, Hastings College of the Law, Mr. Oder was the
Senior Executive Note Editor for the Hastings Communications and
Entertainment Law Journal. He graduated from Hastings in June of 1999
and was admitted to the California State Bar in December of that same
year. Since then, Mr. Oder has worked as a litigator expanding his
knowledge and experience along the way. As the Managing Attorney for
the Law Offices of Anthony E. Vieira (2005-2007), Mr. Oder developed
the foundation necessary to form his own successful law practice. He
firmly believes that integrity, compassion and understanding are
qualities that must go hand in hand with a commitment to excellence.
Mr. Oder is married to his lovely wife Camille, has a beautiful three
year old daughter Amelia and has a new baby boy on the way. He is the
product of his parents’ love and good graces, his brothers’ friendship,
and is thankful everyday for his wonderful family, friends and good
