  • John Howard Gilliam

    Diana is an extremely talented young lawyer. She is intellegent, tough and street-wise - but fair. She understands how to litigate and negotiate without the unprofessional antangonism so many family law attorneys seem to practice. I would recommend her without reservation.

  • Walter A. Wright

    Diana was a student of mine in the Legal Studies Program (a graduate paralegal program) at Texas State University. She was one of our top students when she attended our university. She later went to law school, and I have kept in touch with her progress. From my personal experience, I know that Diana is ethical and hard-working.
