The only thing she looked out for in my case was her pocketbook. I wish she would have kept at least one of the dozens of promises she made me.

Ms. Tennis was everything you hope you are fortunate enough to find in an attorney.
For most of us, regardless of how educated or smart we think we are, we are not prepared for the vast complexities that court and legal matters inevitably present. Furthermore, nor are we informed as to how important choosing the right attorney is in achieving a positive outcome in your case. Don't ever underestimate that...
The legal process, timelines, who the players are, judges, personalities, the law... and so much more are all included in Diana's arsenal. Ms. Tennis was for us in a very complex case, quite simply everything we needed. Ours required an attorney with a strong passion for child advocacy and one who truly had the experience and tenacity to stand up for what was right in the face of some very steep challenges. Her attention to detail, professionalism and preparation was nothing short of superb. Most importantly, she treated our case as if it was her most important and offered personal attention, comfort, and straightforward candor at all times; much like you would expect from a family member stepping up for you and yours...
In a day and age where so many attorneys are focused primarily on retainers, paper pushing for billing, and self serving interests, Diana was the and our exception to the rule.
When searching for the right attorney, especially in family law matters involving the need for child advocates for victims of abuse, interstate custody issues, and a complete understanding of the law and passion for what is right, we strongly suggest you contact Ms. Tennis.

Diana took on my case with great enthusiasm. She always believed in me and our case. She was always available to me no matter when or what for. She kept me calm and in contact at all times. She never told me what I wanted to hear, but what the true issues and facts were. She is a great attorney that anyone who would hire her will have one of the best in her profession. I can not thank her enough for all she did for me.

Diana helped guide me through a very difficult time. She explained my options very well and left the final decision making to me. She was strong in her representation of me (my ex. went through two lawyers.) She also personally contacted me at times and her assitant had a very good working relationship with her. I would sometimes initially speak with the assistant and have Diana return my calls personally. Diana built a relationship with me and knew how I looked at things. It was important to me that she do that. I felt comfortable asking questions and for clarification when I didn't understand things. I did think her fees were excessive when i when it came to correspondence and called her on that. She did make an adjustment to the bill so that was good.

If you are a Dad residing in Florida and are seeking Custody of your children for the benefit of your children ; I would like to recommend Diana Tennis as your attorney . She has been my attorney for over 6 years and has been instrumental in the well being of my son who is now 10 years old.
One of the biggest assets Diana brings to the table is her extensive experience in the trial law arena. I say this because if your case comes down to a trial you do not want a family law attorney with limited trial experience. Diana knows family law with trial law experience. She will not over promise and under deliver and she will shoot straight with you on the issues you are dealing with. My case was a very difficult case . You be the judge : I am a dad in Florida with Full custody and have been awarded child support ... Your case may be difficult ; but having gone through the process I can say that with Diana Tennis you have the very best advocate for your rights.
Best of Luck to you !

Diana Tennis handled my divorce a few years back. I told her I wanted it quick and 24 days later, I was divorced. She made it effortless for me. I recommended her to several friends for their divorces and everyone was so extremely satisfied and spoke so highly of their experience with her. Of course, everyone's situations are different concerning their divorce, but Ms. Tennis handled each one of our divorces uniquely.

I would recommend Ms Diana Tennis to everyone I meet. She is a very classy, educated and honest young woman. She is very thorough and fights for justice. She helped me and my family and our case was won. I cannot say enough good things about Ms. Tennis. I will definitely use her again if I ever had the need.
