About Me

Sharon T. Diamant was a prosecutor in Montgomery County for 10 years before going into private practice. She started in the district court,  handling thousands of misdemeanor crimes before being promoted to the juvenile division. There,  Sharon specialized in crimes involving the sexual abuse of children. In 2008, Sharon joined the Special Prosecution Team in the felony division,  where she handled financial crimes,  fraud, embezzlement and crimes of a sensitive nature involving public officials. 


 


In 2010, Sharon and her law partner opened Diamant Gerstein,  LLC.  The large private Suite in Rockville is ideal for clients to come in, feel welcome and comfortable  and get top-notch legal services.  The law firm does criminal defense,  domestic work,  tax law and general civil litigation.

    I am very impressed with Ms Diamant's willingness to provide info and assistance to this out of state lawyer whose client from MD got in trouble in my state. I'd researched for over 2 hours to no avail; Ms Diamant texted me a provider's name and telephone number in a matter of seconds. Problem solved! I had initially reached out to Ms Diamant based upon her avvo reviews and I have to say she definitely deserves that 10!
