She was more interested in my welfare than in charging a fee. L.B.

I cannot tell you how grateful I am that Diane Drain took my call. I was desperate and she made me feel that I could sleep through the nite. She explained all my options to deal with my financial situation and did not push me to hire her. Instead, she was more interested in my welfare than in her charging a fee. I really wish more lawyers were as professional and courteous as Diane Drain.

"I can not imagine being treated with more professionalism!" S.

I want to express my appreciation to you and your assistant Jay for all your hard work. I can not imagine being treated with more professionalism and respect that you did. Going to the entire bankruptcy process was not a easy task for my and my family but you provided us with valuable counseling while explaining the law, you answered all our questions in a timely manner and you kept us informed at all times of how the process is going. You are not only a competent and experienced lawyer but also one of those fine individuals who takes pride in their profession while serving others. I will recommend you with any opportunity I might have in the future.

"It was clear she cared and was committed to helping people." Posted on AVVO Anonymous 

When I made my decision to file for bankruptcy I did some research. I went through a link on the U.S. court website and read a lot online. Referrals from the court website didn’t include many local lawyers who were willing to list their fees. Not all the lawyers listed gave their fees but Ms. Drain did. Her fee was in the ballpark for me – not the very lowest and not the highest. I visited a few attorneys and they would give me a pile of papers to fill out and then their staff would input the information for an extra $1000! Who needs that, when I’m just as capable, or more, to enter my own information. When I then compared websites and saw Ms. Drain’s I immediately knew I was in the right place – in that her site has so much information about bankruptcy etc. with history, stories, financial information. It was clear she cared and was committed to helping people in financial distress. She is clearly a teacher. I especially liked her personal, caring tone -that showed compassion – in writing and in person – not the normal thing you think of with attorneys! I was able to do the process almost entirely online – which made it quick and easy for me. Yes, you have to get all your details together at home – but that’s not hard. I think by having to enter all the information and with quick responses to questions from Ms. Drain’s associate it was a way for me to take responsibility for the process and thus feel better about it in the end. They were very responsive, efficient, and most of all caring which made the process go quickly and feel good. I’m now heartened, and not cynical, about my experience with an attorney.


"I was extremely pleased by the professionalism" M.M.

I was extremely pleased by the professionalism and care that I was handled with.  I will recommend you to everyone I know that can use the expert help that you provided.

Her knowledge and ability to ask the right questions enabled myself to have a plan of action. L.G.

I can’t begin to adequately express how professional, caring and dialed in Ms. Drain was when I consulted with her.  Her knowledge and ability to ask the right questions enabled myself to have a great conversation and come away with a plan of action.  I would give more stars if I could.

"She was very pleasant, knowledgeable and informative" P.K.

I live in Las Vegas and had a legal matter involving bankruptcy. My attorney in Las Vegas informed me that I would need an attorney from Arizona since the claim was filed in Arizona. I knew no one so went online and searched. No one had better reviews than D.L. Drain. I cannot praise this attorney enough. She was very pleasant, knowledgeable and informative. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.

A fresh start feels so good! I am now looking forward to purchasing a home in the near future. L.T.

I had the wonderful experience of working with Diane Drain to get me through the bankruptcy process. Diane was a Law Professor for many years. She knows the law VERY WELL. I was having trouble with payroll judgement deductions as well as the inability to purchase a home. All of the legal issues and stress is over and has been discharged in the bankruptcy. A fresh start feels so good! I am now looking forward to purchasing a home in the near future. Also a big thank you to Jay the Paralegal who also assisted. Thank you so Much Diane!!!

Diane helped my husband and me get past a difficult chapter in our lives. She answered all our questions and gave us excellent advice.

“Superb Client Service” E.G.

Diane and Jay have far exceeded my expectations of legal services by going above and beyond. Not only did they help me prepare during that most stressful time period in my life but also educated me during the process to prevent any future occurrences. Their systematic process streamlined the procedure and they took the time to listen without judgment. Diane’s personal review of my financial disposition and consultation of my legal options helped me make the right decisions for my case.

No one wants to go through bankruptcy. But if you do find yourself in that position, it’s not the end of the world. If you need someone to help you get through the bankruptcy process, choose Diane. She won’t let you down.  L. A.

 If you find yourself in the situation where you have to go through bankruptcy proceedings, there is no better persons that Diane and Jay. She treats you as if you were her only clients, and shows compassion for your circumstances. She will not lead you astray. The one thing that sets her apart in my mind, is that she encourages you to move forward; that bankruptcy is not the end and you can use the lessons learned from this challenge to do better. She even gifted us a Dave Ramsey book, Starting Over. That was back in early 2015. Boy, was she right! Since then, we embarked on a journey of becoming debt free and paying off the remaining debts. Never again do we want to go through that process again. Now more than five years later, my husband and I have one more month and we will finish paying off our last remaining debt. No one wants to go through bankruptcy. But if you do find yourself in that position, it’s not the end of the world. If you need someone to help you get through the bankruptcy process, choose Diane. She won’t let you down.

Diane has a very calm confidence because she knows the laws inside and out. L.D.

Diane is very smart, patient, kind and sincere. I am a better person for knowing her. I was so nervous to call and start the process but Diane made everything seem easy. I think Diane has a very calm confidence because she knows the laws inside and out.

My situation was complicated but she made it simple. She lives her mantra- definitely. Diane’s mantra from her website- “What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us. What we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal” Albert Pike


“at all times, a conscientious and caring professional” James Kahn

I wholeheartedly endorse Ms. Drain as a bankruptcy practitioner. She is, at all times, a conscientious and caring professional. Diane is one of those attorneys to whom I refer clients with total confidence that their legal needs will be well handled, and that the client will receive the personal attention they deserve. I have worked with Diane over the last 20 years, and know her to be very well informed in law generally and specifically in Bankruptcy. She is on top of all current issues and technology. She lectures in law regularly, including as an adjunct professor at Phoenix School of Law. Diane serves on the Board of Governors of the State Bar of Arizona, and has participated in numerous committees and sections of the State Bar and other professional organizations.

Thank you both for taking care of us and taking the time!! D.K.

My husband and I wanted to begin the process of starting our bankruptcy, but it’s really scary not knowing who you can trust and who would step up to bat for you. Diane and Jay really did that, if felt like we had some friends who cared about us and took their time to walk us through each step with compassion and no judgment what so ever! I would refer them to any and all of my closest family and friends if they were in need of a bankruptcy! Thank you both for taking care of us and taking the time!!

"I am glad that Diane was the person to lead me through it." T.

I wish that I did not have to file for bankruptcy protection; nevertheless, having to go through the process I am glad that Diane was the person to lead me through it. Diane definitely gets an A+ for all the guidance and empathy that she gave to me as a client.
