Even as a child, Ms. Tram wanted to be a lawyer. She notes:

I wanted to help people. The law has this amazing ability to facilitate justice and fairness and I wanted to be a part of that.

An immigrant to the United States, Ms. Tram was the first in her family to attend college, graduating from Cal Poly Pomona University with a degree in Hotel, Motel, and Restaurant Management, Ms. Tram interned at a hotel before realizing that management was not the right career path for her. With her childhood dream of becoming a lawyer as motivation, Ms. Tram enrolled in Western State University College of Law, graduating with her Juris Doctorate in 1993. She spent the first fifteen years of her career gaining valuable legal experience in a wide variety of cases before founding her private practice, The Law Offices of Lien T. Tram, in 2008.

Since its humble beginnings in Ms. Tram’s home nearly ten years ago, The Law Offices of Lien T. Tram has grown into a bustling personal injury practice recognized throughout the state of California for excellence in legal acumen and client service. Its staff speaks Vietnamese, Spanish, and Portuguese fluently, ensuring that each member of the incredibly diverse community in and around San Diego has a skillful and communicative advocate. Ms. Tram is a formidable litigator and has obtained multiple multi-million dollar verdicts for her clients, including $12.3 million for a brain injury and a multi-million dollar elder abuse verdict in 2016. She has been selected to the 2017 Super Lawyers® list for San Diego.

To this day, it is Ms. Tram’s dedication to making the world a better place that truly sets her apart from her competition. Motivated by her desire to improve the lives of each client who seeks out her assistance, Ms. Tram is perseverant and courageous in the pursuit of justice. In order to serve her clients to the best of her ability, Ms. Tram pays careful attention to trends and changes in the legal and political client. Lately, the sea-change of the current presidential administration is affecting her practice.

Looking forward, Ms. Tram hopes to focus her caseload on fewer, more significant cases, hoping to bring her trademark boutique client service to each interaction. In addition to her legal practice, Ms. Tram is happily married with two adult daughters, two dogs, and two cats, with whom she loves to spend time when she isn’t working.
