My bankruptcy
I contacted several lawyers before committing to Hallaq Law. After speaking with Brian and Diem on the phone I felt very good about going to them. They walked me through each step and were supportive and very nice. They know what they are doing to a T and are very informative about the process. They are genuine and honest and the honesty I was given up front is why I would choose them as well as being incredible at there profession. This stuff can be scary and hard to deal with. Go with Hallaq Laq, they are an amazing team.

Prompt, caring and committed
Diem was on top of it from the start! I have a very busy schedule and she made sure to chase down all the necessary paperwork. I would highly recommend Hallaq law group.

First time bankruptcy
Hallaq Law was the perfect choice for me for handling my bankruptcy. I had no knowledge of how to navigate such a task and they were professional, courteous and helpful in every step.

Excellent Experience
I contacted Diem and was immediately set up with a free initial consultation. Diem and her partner assessed my situation thoroughly and through their insight I’ve determined that bankruptcy is not the best choice for me. Although I’ve chosen alternatives to bankruptcy, had I not contacted Diem I may have made a huge mistake. Rather than treating me like a number and pushing me through the system Diem and her partner gave me the insight I needed to make the best informed decision. If you are considering bankruptcy contact Diem and be assured you are in good hands!

Excellent Service
Diem was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. Covid put me into an unfortunate financial situation but with the help of Diem it made the entire process about as stress free as it could have possibly been! She clearly cares about her clients and her work. I highly recommend her for anyone facing difficult circumstances.

Incredible Confidence
Situations beyond my personal control lead me to contact Hallaq Law, Brian and Diem where amazing, during the entire process, as well as after paperwork was filed. They continue to offer support after the process, which shows their dedication to their clients. I would strongly recommend Hallaq Law to anyone and everyone who is going through tough times. They explained everything in great detail with me from the initial contact over the phone, through all our in person meetings, as well as during the court proceedings. Could not be happier with the results and could not have asked for a better team of attorneys. Thank you both so much, and I can’t express how grateful I am to have had your help.

Highly recommend!
Highly recommend! Diem is a great person and attorney. She is very knowledgeable in bankruptcy law and very understanding. She took the time to explain to me the process of bankruptcy and this helped me decide whether it would be a the right choice for me. She has a straightforward and no-nonsense attitude but a great sense of humor! In the end I decided not to move forward with filing but the experience I had with Diem was awesome. If you are looking for a bankruptcy lawyer, contact Diem, you won't regret it!

Stop searching, Diem is the best!
Diem handled my case with ease. She is personable and knowledgeable. She had answers to all of my questions and knew what to say to help me when I felt anxious. I appreciate her attention to detail and her efficiency. If anyone ever needs it, I will always recommend Diem!

My experience with Diem through a very difficult time for me was great. She made me feel so at ease ,explained all the facts and was always there for me day or night to answer any questions or concerns that I had. This was a very pleasant experience for me.

The Lawyer I Recommend !
The negative stigma of bankruptcy caused me to out off filing for two years longer than I should have. I don't recommend doing that if you are over your head in debt, bill collectors are calling, and you aren't able to make your payments on time. But what I do recommend is calling a bankruptcy lawyer asap and getting some good advice. Diem Duong was my lawyer. Her firm offer no cost consultations, so I took advantage of that. I met with Diem and it was obvious to her that filing for bankruptcy was my best option. As far as my bankruptcy it went well. It was easy and pretty painless. I thank Diem for that. She is trustworthy, responsive, knowledgeable, and she kept me informed and up to date on the status of everything. I can't say enough good things about her. If you need to file bankruptcy I recommend talking to Diem, I think you'll be glad you did.

Diem Duong = Excellence
Bankruptcy is normally not viewed in a postive light, but having my lawyer, Diem Duong, on my side made an uncomfortable situation easy. Diem was easy to speak to and communicates well verbally as well as written correspodence. I never felt like I was asking a dumb question and she went out of her way to assure me that everything was going to be okay. Ms. Duong was by far the most professional person in the room during the hearing process. She was visually and organizationally well put together, had the right answers to any questions and was great at reassuring me. Before, during and after my case, Diem kept me in the loop and sent updates regularly. Bankruptcy isn't fun, but this lawyer goes out of her way to make your experience as comfortable as possible. I highly recommend her services for anyone that is in this situation.
