About Us

Douglas A. Crowder, Esq.

Douglas A. Crowder’s 39 year legal career has spanned many fields, including criminal defense, business and corporate law, divorce and family law, various types of civil litigation, as well as bankruptcy and its alternatives. He has argued before the Washington State Supreme Court and New Mexico Court of Appeals, and won two reported appellate decisions.

He has represented hundreds of bankruptcy clients since the early 1980s, and has been doing debt settlement as an alternative to bankruptcy since 1989. The early 90’s saw the proliferation of a great number of non-attorney debt settlement companies, and the birth of the “debt settlement industry.” A number of Mr. Crowder’s business clients were among the founders of the first debt settlement companies, and he provided them with occasional advice and assistance, as well as continuing with his own debt settlement and bankruptcy practice.

Mr. Crowder is also certified by the California Bar as a provider of Minimum Continuing Legal Education (MCLE).  California attorneys are required to complete 25 hours of continuing education every three years, and our office helps them do so by providing both live seminars and self-study courses.
