After being charged with criminal mischief, I was recommended to Diana from a mutual friend. Diana immediately took action and spearheaded my case. She always kept me informed and acted in a professional manner. I asked Diana to try her best to have my charges dropped. Originally, the prosecutor agreed to drop my charges but with a differed prosecution agreement. Diana was able to convince the prosecutor to drop my charges outright without the differed prosecution agreement, which was just icing on the cake at that point. Though the same may not be for you, I never once had to step foot in a court room for the charges against me. Diana handled everything from start to finish. I would whole heartedly recommend Diana Buss for your legal needs.

Diana was straight forward and honest. She quickly resolved our case, she walked us through each step, and she even charged us less when the case was resolved so quickly. We keep her card in our wallets because she is definitely the first call we will make.

Recently I obtained a warrant without bond for failure to complete my SWAP for DWI and court fees in time. This basically means that I would have to just sit out my sentence in jail without any other options. I was freaking out because school is about to start, and I have two jobs. There is just too much I could lose having to sit in Jail for 20 days.
I hired Diana after shopping around quite a bit.
She was extremely up front with me, and told me all the possibilities and options.
When I asked her about payment she informed me that she didn't want to take my money until she knew she would be able to do something for me!
I find this really awesome. Every other attorney I talked with wanted a payment before they spoke on my behalf. Even if they weren't sure if they could help me.
Diana went to court the next day and talked to the judge/clerk off the record to make sure that she could help. She received positive news so I payed her the next day. The following afternoon she let me know that the judge had filed a warrant recall and would allow me to resubmit to complete my SWAP. She called me personally and emailed me my recall card that day.
I have used a handful of lawyers for different matters since I've been in Austin and I can honestly say that I will surely hire her again if I end up with any other legal matters. She was very kind, honest, prompt, and knowledgeable.

I spoke to Ms. Buss regarding getting a charge expunged or sealed. She provided me with some very helpful information. She seems to be extremely knowledgeable with criminal law. She was quick to respond to my phone calls and emails. She answered my questions and concerns and explained everything very well to me. I did not feel rushed during our conversation. If you are searching an attorney who will give you her undivided attention and is knowledgeable with criminal law, then Ms. Buss is the one for you!

Diana is an exceptional, polished, and professional litigator. I respect her calm, well-prepared approach to my situation with an urgent TRO and divorce issue. If you require an earnest and direct legal advisor, contact Diana E. Buss. She is compassionate about my concerns, and has kept me apprised and updated on a very consistent basis. Diana E. Buss is THE litigator to contact if you want to be represented as an individual, not just as a case. In court, this woman is strong in etiquette and didn't falter at the attempted verbal assault by my soon-to-be ex-spouse. I am honored she is on my side! Thank you, Diana!

I first contacted Morales & Navarrete Attorneys about bail for my grandson. The answering service took my name and number and Diana Buss-Ray was the first to respond. She said she would meet me at the Travis County Jail at a specific time and kept her word. I was amazed because there were others at the jail who were still waiting for their bondsperson. Initially she came to help with bail, but asked if I would like representation for my grandson and I immediately said yes. I commend Diana because she was prompt and explained my grandson's charge to both of us. Throughout the case she explained the court proceedings and the prosecuting requests to my grandson and I. My grandson liked her and felt assured with her as I did. She is a straightforward person and I like that in a lawyer. She is honest and takes her job seriously. She listens to you, but requires that you take charges seriously. That impressed me and in my opinion is a very responsible lawyer. She doesn't take any bull. You can depend on Diana to do a good job. My grandson's charge was dismissed after he completed the requirements. Thanks to Diana he will have a second chance. I will definitely keep her phone number and hope to keep her as a personal lawyer to handle personal legal issues, for example my Probate Will. Thank you Diana for helping my grandson and giving me piece of mind throughout his case.

Diana was excellent. She showed up early on a Saturday morning to help bail me out of jail. Later, for my case her job to get the case dismissed, which she did. She handled all my court dates for me, and I never had to actually appear in court as she went on my behalf. She dealt with the prosecutors and struck a very reasonable deal with them on my behalf. After completing the stipulations outlined in the deal, my case was dismissed and I was never actually prosecuted. Through all of this, Diana was very responsive and helpful with all the questions I had. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Diana, was very compansionate and understanding. At times she would just listen while I would "vent" about what was going on with the other party regarding my divorce.
