MUSINGS FROM DIANE:
Be very careful about anyone who offers to help with your legal situation. The consequences of any dramatic event, like the COVID-19 virus, are the creation of thousands of scams intended for only one purpose – STEALING YOUR MONEY. Prior to the Internet we worried about local scams, but now the scams are coming from the other side of the world. Do your homework. Rely on government sites, not on the press (I cannot tell you how many times I have been misquoted by the press). Always double-check sources when you best friend tells you about a quick fix. Again, be very careful out there.
Remember to wash your hands often.

“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.
