Cultivating Trust

About The Firm

The Law Office of Donald R. Oder was founded on the principle that client satisfaction is more important than short term financial gain. We believe that our commitment to client satisfaction has led to long and rewarding associations. Attorneys can and should provide the highest quality legal representation at affordable rates, and they should do so in a way that does not intimidate clients. After fifteen years in the litigation trenches, attorney Donald R. Oder has seen first-hand the impact involvement in legal matters has on individuals and business of all sizes. Too often attorneys caught up in the pragmatic realities of their work lose sight of the client’s evolving needs and desires. Concerns about costs, trustworthiness and avoidable confrontation often cause people to delay in seeking important legal advice. Keeping clients informed, promptly responding to their inquiries and continually reassessing their goals is how we stay connected. Staying connected means keeping track of evolving needs and desires and this in turn ensures a productive partnership.

At the Law Office of Donald R. Oder, we are committed to providing our clients outstanding legal representation in a relaxed and inviting environment. We believe that our clients, in choosing our firm, invest more than just money. They invest their trust in us, and in the world of business trust is a coveted asset. We also know that trust is an asset that must be earned, and we work tirelessly towards that goal. We are convinced that regular communication with our clients and a commitment to excellence are the best ways to gain our clients' trust and to ensure a maximum return on our clients’ investment. This commitment has helped us establish our place amongst San Diego's growing law practices.

Founder attorney Donald R. Oder received his B.A. in Economics, magna cum laude, from the University of California at San Diego in 1996. At the University of California, Hastings College of the Law, Mr. Oder was the Senior Executive Note Editor for the Hastings Communications and Entertainment Law Journal. He graduated from Hastings in June of 1999 and was admitted to the California State Bar in December of that same year. Since then, Mr. Oder has worked as a litigator expanding his knowledge and experience along the way. As the Managing Attorney for the Law Offices of Anthony E. Vieira (2005-2007), Mr. Oder developed the foundation necessary to form his own successful law practice. He firmly believes that integrity, compassion and understanding are qualities that must go hand in hand with a commitment to excellence. Our firm's ability to meet our client's evolving legal needs is fortified by Mr. Oder's fifteen years of litigation and transactional experience.

Mr. Oder is married to his lovely wife Camille and has two beautiful children - nine year old Amelia and five year old Logan. He is the product of his parents’ love and good graces, his brothers’ friendship, and is thankful everyday for his wonderful family, friends and good fortune. Mr. Oder's core values translate to his practice of law which enhances the quality of our firm's representation.
