I would not recommend Diane Cherry to anyone! I had the worst experience with her more like her secretary because she was just too busy for me even though I had put down a 3,000$ retainer. First lawyer I have ever dealt with and I want impressed at all. I take my life and the things going on in it seriously, she did not. I felt like I put the most important part of my life in her hands and that she could have cared less. She also told me she had other things going on and cases she was preparing for and that she was basically to busy to deal with mine at the moment. She is a joke of a lawyer if you ask me. I hate to be so blunt and outright ugly but all she did was peddle paperwork and waste my time and money. I did not want to hire her in the first place, unfortunately time was on her side because the lawyer I really wanted couldn't see me until Friday I was under time sensitive circumstances. I now wished I would have waited. This woman didn't want to hear about my case at all, she didn't even know what she what she was getting herself into. She didn't want details or my past history. She went through 3,000 in a matter of weeks, never did we have mediation or court or anything. We decided to go our separate ways and even after I told her not to file another single thing because I wanted to take the remainder of my retainer elsewhere she made sure she emailed to where I had to respond so she could keep charging and filed unnecessary paperwork "in my best interest" even though I told her through email not to she said she was going to do it anyways. I had 89$ left after everything was said and done...and NOTHING was done or accomplished at all! Needless to say a seriously unsatisfied customer. What is the world coming to? People have lost sight in truly helping someone, especially someone you pay to do a job they say they do well. :/ Another lesson learned the hard way. Thought for sure she would have helped make the divorce/cold custody process a little less painful, I was sadly mistaken. I hope you have endless pockets if you hire her and a love for someone who clearly could care less about what you are going through.

I cannot recommend Diane Cherry highly enough. My case was challenging, to say the least, but she managed to achieve a settlement that allowed me to keep my house and feed my kids. It was more than I expected, maybe more than I deserved considering the poor decisions I had made in my marriage. Diane was very conscious of my legal fees and went out of her way to keep the costs down. She is a fantastic lawyer and has a wonderful office team to support her. I highly recommend Diane to anyone who may be contemplating or pursuing a divorce or separation.

Diane handled my case from start to finish without me ever stepping into the courtroom. It was great. Everything went smoothly as Diane always kept me informed and responded promptly to my queries. Diane is not only an excellent lawyer but she also genuinely cares about her clients and is very supportive throughout the process, which I think sets her apart. Diane is simply the best, there's no doubt about it! I'm lucky to have her for my lawyer!

I interviewed 3 other lawyers before signing up with Diane and my instinct was right on. She is very effective at getting results and did so without alienating the ex or her lawyer. She saved me so much money and aggravation and made it virtually painless for me. I am in a much better place now financially than I ever thought I would be and still on good terms with the ex, who wished she hired Diane before I did. You can't go wrong with Diane. She's outstanding!

Diane was very patient with me and was much more on top of things that my ex's lawyer. She was always really well prepared and knows the law. I really appreciated the time and attention she gave to me and my case. She made me feel like I was her most important client and her office staff was very friendly and helpful as well.

Ms. Cherry was the best! She knew exactly what I would need in the future with 3 small boys and she made sure that we would be okay. I recommend her to anyone that wants out...
