I found Diane very professional and she helped me every step of the way through a very traumatic time in my life. The whole process went smooth and her knowledge was invaluable.

We had a very complicated estate case for my grandmother's estate. I had no experience at all and Diane helped me through the process and was with me 100% of the way. Other attorneys became involved because of the complications with the various parties and we had to go before a judge. The judge agreed with Diane's arguments.
Diane was always organized and and supportive. She took care of me and made sure I knew what was happening every step of the way. I felt she genuinely cared about doing the right thing and she was very fair about her fees. I honestly felt I had a sincere ally - I have heard that some people have not trusted their lawyers for various reasons - I trusted Diane 100% and I still trust her now. She is an honest person, intelligent and forthright. I am thankful she was with me through this difficult process. Also, she has a pleasant personality and is extremely easy to work with.

I have worked with many attorneys in my work, but have little experience regarding personal issues. Diane Gruber was just what I was looking for...someone who was easy to talk with, knew the questions to ask me so I could clarify in my mind just what I wanted to do and answered the questions I already knew I had.
I wanted to have a will that would protect and provide for an elderly parent should something happen to me, but also address a sibling with poor money handling ability. It's a lot easier when all you want is to have things divided up! It becomes more difficult when you need an executor who might need to be involved for a number of years. Ms. Gruber was able to help me simplify my thinking and arrive at a plan I was very comfortable with and accomplished the things that were important to me.
The whole process took 2 office visits (initial and for signing) and a couple of revisions made by phone and email. Actually quite quick and painless.
I would, and have, referred friends to Ms. Gruber.

I went to see Mrs. Gruber because my eX-husband took me to court for custody of our children. His main intent was to lower his child support. I didn't want to go to court in the first place but working with Diane helped alot. She is very competent and incredibly knowledgeable.
When we first met, we discussed the case in a more factual sense rather than "he said, she said" which was what I really needed. I didn't realize it at the time, but that approach kept me from getting too emotionally upset. We did a pretty thorough overview and Diane started taking care of all the paperwork that needed to be filed and contacting my X's attorney. It took a few months before we went to court.
About 1-3 weeks before court, I met with Diane more often to start a more thorough preparation for court. Diane asked me a lot of questions and reviewed alot, which told me she had really listened in all of our previous conversations. She was 100% prepared by the time we went to court. She was aggresive and professional which really makes her valuable in any case. She covered EVERYTHING in court that I thought was important to cover. She was very clear to explain different scenarios that came up when I didn't understand. This is the first time I had been to court, so I had no idea what to expect. Diane kept me informed through it all.
I really felt like we were a team and she had my back! It gave me a confidence that everyone needs when going through something like this. The Judges decision was fair and understandable. My eX-husband didn't get everything he wanted. This was due to the fact of how Diane handled herself in the courtroom. She was totally responsive when negative issues came up from the other attorney; she always dealt with these right away and called witnesses or presented evidence to the judge to prove the information wasn't completely correct or honest.
I can't say enough of how prepared Diane was and how on the ball she was. She has years of experience too, and that experience shows in her commitment to handling your case!
Diane Gruber is an awesome attorney! If anything ever comes up again in my life and I need an attorney, I'll be calling Mrs. Gruber!

Diane handled my parents respective wills and probates. They passed away unexpectedly and within days of each other. It was a difficult and confusing time for me, but Diane guided me step by step and she completed the numerous legal requirements in a timely, pleasant and professional manner. I enjoyed interacting with her.

I had a very hard person to deal with after his wife died. Diane helped me through some court issues and for 2-3 years she went over and beyond helping me deal with this person.

I retained Diane Gruber for Bankruptcy Representation. She did not want to listen to any of my concerns and pushed hard towards a quick bankruptcy. I took my time, looked at all of my options and was able to settle with my creditors and Tax agents to avoid bankruptcy. I received many letters from Diane Gruber pushing the bankruptcy and giving me a deadline to complete. I notified her office that I was looking at other options, but bankruptcy was not off the table. I then offered to give her 500 out of the 900 paid (contract was for 500.00, she asked for more), asked for a refund of 400 and she replied with â€œIâ€™m scaredâ€ and claims she is not only entitled to the entire 900.00 but moreâ€¦ She did not represent my case to the trustee or court; she simply filled out a template that was never submitted. Following up with a small claims case.
