DAYBL was founded in 2005 by local bankruptcy professionals who wanted to form a unique and close-knit group dedicated to the growth and enrichment of young bankruptcy professionals in the DFW area. Since then, DAYBL’s membership and reach has grown tremendously, fulfilling its founders’ visions and playing an important role in the future of the DFW bankruptcy bar.


DAYBL is committed to its overall mission of helping young law students and lawyers to advance their education and value in industry through sponsored programs involving mentorship, communication, and networking.


DAYBL recognizes and values the strong professional relationships that exist in the DFW bankruptcy community and understands that these relationships form the foundation of the strong reputation that the community enjoys nationwide. By fostering these relationships and collegial bonds among young bankruptcy professionals, DAYBL hopes to continue this tradition and support the continued future success of the DFW bankruptcy bar and restructuring community.
