Super Lady - Super Lawyer
Diane handled a speeding ticket that I received. Her staff guided me through the process providing clear concise directions all along the way. I received all communications as requested via e-mail and they always arrived in a timely fashion. Each person with whom I dealt was courteous and helpful. Most importantly, Diane and her team were able to effect a positive outcome for me. I can see why she received the designation of "Super Lawyer!"
