It is difficult to include and explain all the good things that Liz did for me during this trying time in my life ,so I will do my best and start from the top .This was a nasty divorce and a lot of underhanded things took place and there were lines crossed that I would never cross to get what I wanted .So from the start the deck was stacked against me in many ways. I didn't want a free consultation.What I wanted was the truth and the facts, that is exactly what I got ! Truly I had a good feeling before I even met Liz that there was no other lawyer for me and after the consult that was all confirmed in my mind and heart .Actually I had to end the consultation because Liz never tried to end it and it was the end of the day when everyone wants to go home ,she listened to all I had to say ,answered all my questions and put me at ease (which is something she would do on many,many occasions when I would call or need to see her ) I always hung up the phone or left her office feeling confident and good ! And the consultation fee was deducted off the retainer fee .So it was a no lose situation,even if it was a separate fee it still would have been worth it ! I knew from the start that the battle I was fighting would require a female attorney and I got the best as far as I'm concerned, 5 STAR for sure . Liz knew exactly what to do , how to proceed ,what law guardian she wanted to represent my daughter and how to handle me, my anger and frustration too .She was extremely professional ,polite , friendly and very down to earth ,and I will say the same for her assistant and everyone from the 1st person you would see when you entered the office to the most senior partners . There is good reason why Liz and the firm she represents have such a good reputation,and yes they may be expensive but the old saying" you get what you pay for " totally applies here .I really can't say enough good things about Liz and Tabat,Cohen,Blum and Yovino . I wound up with a settlement that was more than I ever expected and a feeling of satisfaction that I can't explain.Liz had told me at the initial consult that this was going to be one of the most difficult things I would ever have to deal with and she was 100% correct and I have been through quite a bit ,esp. in the last 10 years .It is emotionally and mentally draining and extremely stressful ,it's something you have to experience to understand . The system also adds to the stress and frustration levels .It is a long drawn out process that completely interferes with normal daily life and enjoyment .Liz basically held my hand and guided me through a process that in completion was 4 & 1\2 years . Liz has it all ! she is friendly ,pleasant ,professional and real . She has the looks and the brains too and my ex wife hated her and I'm sure she still does . So if you are faced with the unpleasantness that comes with a contested divorce Elizabeth Diesa is the one to choose. I am so glad I made the choice and was able to hire her . I believe that without Liz I would never have wound up with the the final settlement that I did .So far anyone who I have told cannot believe that I came out of this the way I did .I would highly recommend Liz to anyone getting divorced or dealing with custody issues or family court . I could go on and on with only good things to say but I will leave off with what I have written . Thanks Liz !

Ms. Diesa guided and supported me through a rough 2 year court-battled divorce. She is in every way professional, savvy and knowledgeable - not only regarding the divorce-in-court, but also looking to the result as it plays out in the real world. In the end I received an unexpected and pleasant financial settlement, and my children and I can now go on to rebuild our lives. I give Ms. Diesa the highest marks possible, and I am ever thankful for her perseverance with my case and her personal concern. Last, but certainly not least, high marks and gratitude also go to her assistant, Ms. Savino, and her dedicated office staff, who provided information and guidance throughout the long haul.

As I reflected recently on a past divorce, I couldn't be any happier that I chose Liz and her firm to represent me for a divorce involving custody issues. During a divorce, many lawyers are quick to exploit your emotions with unnecessary work that only increases their bills. Not Liz. She is a calming voice of rational thought, and only escalates matters if/when they are needed. I would call very upset and, rather than suggest crazy legal action, she would help put my concerns at ease and keep me focused on what's really important. In the end, I received a better settlement that I had hoped for, including custody. I am so thankful I was referred to her firm, and that she was the one assigned to my case. I would recommend her for anyone going through the unfortunate process of divorce.
My one tip: Don't get fooled by law firms that charge cheaper hourly fees. I had a little sticker shock when it came to the firm's fees. But in the end, they didn't pad their bills with ridiculous letters and motions like my ex's lawyer did (that lawyer charged my ex probably 3x what I paid).

Ms. Diesa, or "Liz" as colleagues know her, is a consummate professional and passionate advocate for clients. I always appreciate working with her because she is practical and more than competent. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.
