Diane helped consult my family and I on how to get my mother, who is mentally ill, the proper treatment that she needs. Diane is an expert in the Assisted Community Treatment (Assisted Outpatient Treatment) laws here in Hawaii as she has completed petitions, worked with psychiatrists and gone to court hearings about these cases in the past. She is one of the only lawyers in Hawaii who is knowledgeable and experienced in this area and completely understands the purpose of the ACT program, who needs it and how it can help save lives.
I recommend Diane to anyone looking into the Assisted Community Treatment program or anyone who is a caregiver of someone that is mentally ill and looking for ways to get their loved one help. Through Diane's wisdom, expertise, passion and empathy, she will be able to both represent you legally as well as support you personally. Thank goodness for lawyers like Diane who provide such valuable services for families like mine and for the community as a whole!
My case was a State retirement disability. My application was turned down and I hired another lawyer for an appeal. He took my money upfront, did nothing, then quit on me.
Lady luck smiled on me when I found Diane Haar and her Hawaii Disability Legal Services team. She took my case and put together an amazing appeal which reversed the denial. The appeal brief she put together was above and beyond what I expected. It was amazing!
I can't say enough great things about Diane Haar. Brilliant, nice, caring, efficient, thorough, knows the law and does her research!
I have dealt with lawyers professionally & personally throughout my life and Diane is by far the best. I can't thank her enough! If she takes your case, you are in the best of hands!
OUTSTANDING ATTORNEY! Before I sought out Diane, I was floundering on my own attempting to navigate the Social Security disability process and I was very frustrated and getting nowhere. From my first meeting with Diane, she was courteous, professional and treated me exceptionally well. She took on my case and it moved along pretty quickly, with her providing timely updates throughout the process. I was so impressed by her services, I referred two friends to her who report that they are quite happy with her services too.
Finally, she really showed sincere compassion and tenacity in representing me all the way through my hearing. I just received my fully favorable decision from Social Security and I will receive benefits soon. I cannot thank Diane enough. I will continue to refer friends to her. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Diane is amazing. I had a permenant attack of MS. I can hardly walk, can't use my right hand and I have severe nausea and fatigue. I applied for Disability Insurance and was denied twice even though I had multiple letters from Doctors saying that I am unable to work (including the head of neurology at a large hospital!). At this point, I nearly gave up, but I decided to give an attorney a try. I rang about 5 attorneys in Hawaii. Diane was the only one who returned my calls. She was so positive, confident and caring I could hardly believe it. I ended up speaking to a couple of other attorneys to see if anyone had experience in International cases (I live in Australia). I wasn't impressed. I made the right choice. Throughout the process Diane kept me updated and answered my hundreds of questions in a timely manner. She also dealt with the international office, which is not easy.... Naturally, she won my case. She doesn't give up until she does. I couldn't recommend he highly enough. If you need an attorney please give her a call. You will know what I mean as soon as you speak to her. I don't think you could find a better attorney. Please contact me if you have any questions. Thank you Diane.
It took the VA over one-and-one-half years to get me a rating, and it wasn't accurate, so I decided to hire an attorney. Diane Haar handled my VA Disability case. I'm thrilled with the results. The process took a while longer, but that was waiting for VA. Mrs. Haar knew exactly what to do, and she got me the results I wanted from the beginning. I'm happy I found her.
Mrs. Diane Haar worked on my VA Disability Claim for well over 2 years. She handled all the paperwork and really took away all the stress away from me. She kept me informed every step of the way. She's Trustworthy and Professional.
