About Me

"Maria Diamond is tough and confident, but also kind and compassionate.  We were bowled over by her expertise.  She was able to wrap up our auto accident case quickly and successfully.  Her grasp of our case put us at ease, and there were no surprises during the settlement.  We can't recommend Maria highly enough."



~ Glenn and Becky D.

“I was referred to Maria Diamond by other attorneys. Whenever I needed to discuss something important with her, she went out of her way to meet with me although I lived a long distance from her office. She was very kind, thorough, ethical, and approachable. She was compassionate about allowing me to verbalize about having a healthy disk in my neck mistakenly removed during surgery. I trusted Maria when I needed to trust someone. She fought hard for me, and I highly recommend her.”
