Bankruptcy Attorney, Law Professor, Community Activist, Mentor and much more…

Working with an experienced bankruptcy attorney is very important because bankruptcy is an extremely complicated legal procedure.

Bankruptcy is like a Rubik’s cube.

Diane L. Drain, bankruptcy attorney, retired law professor, mentor and community spokesperson.

It is designed to protect both individuals and businesses that cannot meet their financial obligations.  Most importantly, bankruptcy is established in the United States Constitutional.  It is essential that you obtain good legal advice from an experienced bankruptcy attorney before entering into this complex process.  Our office offers a free initial consultation.

I’ve been a consumer bankruptcy lawyer since 1991, and during that time I’ve seen information about bankruptcy go from non-existent to overwhelming.  It also ranges from competent to down right ridiculous.  As a retired law professor I am committed to educating the general public about bankruptcy.

The Internet has very good and VERY bad information, but there is no way for you to tell the difference.

There are thousands of Internet sites, articles, directories and blogs developed by lawyers and non-lawyers that provide absolutely no useful information, and some debt consolidation sites that are designed for the sole purpose of misleading the reader about bankruptcy and other possible options.

Some resources:

In order to help you navigate this morass of information, I present to you some top 8 bankruptcy law resources for consumers online (other than this site, of course).

  1. United States Bankruptcy Court
  2. US Department of Justice – US Trustee’s Program
  3. National Association Of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys
  4. Bankruptcy in Brief
  5. Wall Street Journal: Bankruptcy Beat
  6. American Bankruptcy Institute

We have several videos on our web site.

MUSINGS BY DIANE:

“My hope is that you’ll use these resources when making a decision about whether bankruptcy’s right for you.  Remember, there’s a lot of information online or that your friends may offer – not all of it is reliable.  Some may be so wrong that you will be facing serious legal and financial consequences, despite your innocent intentions.”

“You folks are the BEST OF THE BEST in Arizona.” M.H.

You and Jay are the best attorneys I have ever had or needed and thank God for the Honorable Robert Gottsfield in recommending you folks – I would have never made it through the entire process without you and Jay and God Bless you both always and stay in touch as well. You folks are the BEST OF THE BEST in Arizona.

“My only regret is that I didn’t find Diane sooner.” K.H.

I can’t say enough good things about Diane. The way she handled my not typical circumstances was amazing. I was very nervous to start the bankruptcy process but Diane just has a very comforting way of explaining the whole process. My only regret is that I didn’t find Diane sooner. If you find yourself in a financial situation that you can’t correct on your own, please Call Diane Drain as soon as possible.

“Filing for bankruptcy can be a stressful life event” R.A.

Filing for bankruptcy can be a stressful life event, and selecting the right attorney can add to this stress. Diane and Jay were a pleasure to work with, and it is obvious that they are passionate about helping people get their life back on track. I would highly recommend them if you need a bankruptcy attorney.
