Doan Law is one of California’s Largest Family of Attorneys, and prides itself in exclusively protecting consumer rights through bankruptcy and non-bankruptcy alternatives.  It is also the only father-and-five-sons family of bankruptcy attorneys in the entire United States.  By combining traditional family values, superior legal representation, and un-compromised client care, the firm ranks at the top of Southern California Attorneys.

Presently, the Firm consists of the six Doan Partners and about 10 associate attorneys working under their direct supervision.  That’s a combined total of over 150 years legal experience.  The firm has successfully filed Bankruptcy Protection for over 30,000 Southern Californians.  Attorney Michael Doan is a Board Certified Specialists in Consumer Bankruptcy Law by the American Board of Certification, and one of only 13 in the entire state of California.  In fact, he filed the very first chapter 7 and chapter 13 cases in the Southern District of California in October, 2005, after the new BAPCPA Bankruptcy Reform Laws took place.

Experience matters.  Don’t be fooled by the competition.  There are many recent law school graduates and other inexperienced attorneys switching to the bankruptcy field due to the economy.  We were founded in 1995 and incorporated in 2004 and for many years have been one of San Diego County’s largest Bankruptcy Filing Firm.  The Judges and Trustees are well aware of the quality of our services and reputation.  This is precisely why our cases run so smoothly!
Please describe a case in the last year or two where you made a big difference.

We recently were successful in getting a 2nd mortgage to completely release their lien for a client that had filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy in San Diego. Mortgages, such as 2nd mortgages, always retain their lien even if the underlying debt is discharged in bankruptcy. This means you must continue to pay the mortgage in full for the lien to go away. In this case, our client saved a substantial amount of money by not having to pay the mortgage, instantly doubling her equity.

How did you build a successful practice?

Through teamwork and family. Having 4 siblings that all practice bankruptcy law, as well as my father, has allowed us to share vast resources and years of prior experience in short amount of time.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?

Experience. Filing bankruptcy is a big decision, for instance once you file Chapter 7 you can't later decide to "unfile" when things go south. There are many pitfalls to navigate in bankruptcy, finding someone with a history of experience in your local bankruptcy court is more than an insurance policy, it's a must.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?

Very Important! Knowing how your local bankruptcy judge/trustee interprets the bankruptcy code, what they require, and how they operate for any given circumstance is invaluable. It allows your attorney to strategically represent you in not only preparing your case for filing, but completing your case and securing your discharge once have filed.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?

We can usually advise if chapter 7 bankruptcy is a good fit in as little as 5-10 minutes.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?

We need to know your approximate amount of debt, your average monthly income, your expenses, and your assets, the property you own. We have a few other questions too, such as whether you have filed a bankruptcy in the last 8 years, if you are in a lawsuit or have a lawsuit, as well whether your tax returns have been filed. Exact numbers are not required at the free phone consultation, but should we need more details we will let you know first in order to confirm all our recommendations, all before you retain and pay your fees.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?

We are approachable, make you feel comfortable, dress like regular people and we will talk to you like family. Everything we discuss and say is completely confidential, we want you to be as open as possible with us, and to do that we understand our part. Open dialogue is perhaps the greatest way to insure your filing is a success.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?

Restoring health and wellbeing to our clients and experiencing that transformation firsthand is the most rewarding and satisfying aspect of my practice.

What are your other interests in addition to law?

Spending time with family, be it surfing, mountain biking, hiking, or watching Netflix, being active in my local community -. developing relationships with others and meeting people from all over the world, all walks of life, Being of service to others.

Are you involved in your community?

Yes, I have always been involved my community, community is family, we should all be there for each other.
