It seems that David J. Doyaga was destined to practice law in the City of New York and build a successful practice by representing New Yorkers. Born in Brooklyn, he was raised by his mother in the Fort Greene section. Applying the strong work ethic instilled by his parents, he succeeded at all levels of his education from New York City Public schools, to Brooklyn College to ultimately New York Law where he served as an editor of the Law Review, and received his J.D. in 1980 with honors.
Founding the firm in 1986, David’s commitment to his clients and quality legal service set him apart from most consumer bankruptcy attorneys. Over the years as his practice and reputation grew he was recognized as a leader in the Bankruptcy Bar and appointed to the panel of Federal Chapter 7 Trustees in the Eastern District of New York in 1992. Although he oversees thousands of bankruptcy cases a year for the United States Justice Department, he never lost touch with his roots and prides himself on representing hard working New Yorkers in their effort to address their financial problems and building a solid future.
After 25+ years, David Doyaga is a fixture in the world of New York Bankruptcy. He is one of only a handful of Board Certified consumer Bankruptcy attorneys and his memberships include the National Association of Bankruptcy Trustees (NABT), the American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI), New York State Bar Association and the Brooklyn Bar Association. In fact, with his family heritage tracing back to Basque Spain he was the first Spanish President in the history of the Brooklyn Bar Association serving from 2000 - 2001. A recipient of numerous awards and a former Professor of Law, you do not have to look too hard to locate David Doyaga. Demonstrating a professional trait he must have inherited from his mother - - a life long educator - - you can find David lecturing on Bankruptcy issues all across the City, State and Country.
David was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. In addition to his Jacob D. Fuchsberg Touro Law School education, he considers the skills, compassion and respect he learned from growing up in a hard working, diverse and passionate city such as New York as just as important. "See growing up in Brooklyn, I met a lot of people, even lots of different people. What I learned was that while we are all different, we all want to be treated respectfully. That is universal."
David's family is from the Basque region of Spain, which is one of Europe's oldest cultures. Being fluent in Spanish, David loves to travel to Spain and South America. Some of his favorite places include Argentina, Colombia, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. "My Abuela traveled to every country in Latin America, from Cuba to Chile. She inspired my love for hispanic culture."
A father to David III, you can find David pushing his stroller with baby in tow almost every Sunday. "Lil' David is the cutest kid ever. I think he looks like his dad!"
