My bankruptcy case was done perfectly!
I hired Thomas to file my bankruptcy Chapter 7. All my paper work was straight and the process didn't take too long. Mr Dao did a great job, I didn't have to stress about it at all, even though bankruptcy itself can be a very stressful situation. Would certainly recommend and if I have any legal matter in the future I am coming back to Mr Dao's office.

immigration matter
I have hired Thomas Dao for multiple occasions. First, I needed help to file my green card application. Mr. Dao gave me detailed information and went through all the documents that I need to submit together with my I-485. He also, helped me with my work authorization and travel document applications. Because of him I am a happy Green Card holder now. I am going to seek for his help if I need to in future.

I'm a mom now
My father passed away in December 2012, he left no will or trust. As his only child, I had a mess to deal with, which added to my stress and grief. Because I did not have any kids myself, I had always planned to leave my estate to my niece aka Army girl. She is an Army Veteran, and served 2 tours of duty in Iraq. Of my 3 nieces and 2 nephews, she is the only one that has proven to me that she is responsible, and worthy of receiving my estate, which includes a home, a 401, and 2 vehicles. Army girl does not remember her father, as my sister divorced when she was 3 years old. My sister died when Army girl was in boot camp, and I was worried that this might cause her to not continue on the honorable path she was on. She not only continued, she shined. Then in her early 30's she discovered her father had passed away, before she could meet him. I have always wanted her to know that she is wanted, and I had thought about adoption for a long time. After dealing with my father's estate, I was concerned that she might have my mess to deal with. That's when I asked Thomas if he could help me adopt Army girl. He said he could, and he did. He explained the process, so there were no surprises. He also updated my trust, which makes me feel confident that when I pass, Army girl will be taken care of. I am forever grateful to Thomas for making this happen for us, WE are a family now.
