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!
