What Our Clients Say

We work tirelessly to serve our clients. Here's what they have to say.

Stephanie S.

If I could go back in time I would have hired Diana to represent me earlier. She’s smart, quick, thorough, considerate, factual and punctual. She’s very easy to work with and very willing to help find a resolution for any scenario. She’s brilliant at working with “colorful” personalities and unwilling to sugarcoat. I appreciate her tactful resolution platform and her tenacity to complete each and every task. Thank you Diana for your help.

Sharona D.

Diana is amazing - she went above and beyond in my case and if it wasn't for her, I have no idea where I would be right now. She truly is a fighter and I would highly recommend her. She helped me subpoena and discover so much insightful information that I was able to use in trial. There are not enough words to describe how amazing she has been for me!

Rachel C.

I cannot say enough good things about my experience working with Diana and her firm. She advised and counseled me through a very challenging time in my life. Importantly, she always viewed my case in the most efficient and practical ways. I really benefited from her depth and breadth of experience. After our calls, I always hung up the phone feeling clear and calm. I am so grateful she was on my team.

About our Firm


Criminal Defense Approach:

  • When charges are filed or initial contact is made by law enforcement, it is best to have a skilled advocate by your side. Do not speak to the police without your lawyer present.


  • From the outset of working with our firm, you will know that your attorney is on your side and ready to pursue every avenue - procedural and substantive - to provide a thoughtful and strong defense.


  • Every viable avenue will be pursued to give the best possible defense, including during the early stages of discovery, suppression of unlawfully obtained evidence, pre-trial motions, investigations, use of experts, witness interviews, and a vigorous defense at trial.


  • With firm experience including hundreds of court appearances, your defense lawyer will manage the case skillfully and diligently from the filing of initial charges through the jury trial and sentencing.
