About me

At my firm all clients get my personal attention.  Family law matters can be emotional and I am aware of the support a person needs during such a trying time.  You will never be shuttled to another attorney or support staff when working with my firm.  You will receive personalized attention specific to your sensitve case needs.  I give free initial consultations where we can use the facts to formulate the best legal strategy for your family.  Family law is all I do and it shows in my work on your behalf.

  • Crispino M. Pastore

    I have known Diana for several years now and I cannot help but be impressed by the competent and caring approach she brings to her family law practice. In a field that seems to be oversaturated with attorneys, Diana's excellence stands out from the crowd. She has a genuine passion for all of her clients and loves being able to help them and their families through such a difficult time in their lives. She believes in both equitable and practical solutions to divorce through a collaborative process, if possible. If not, then she is a zealous advocate for her clients' through the litigation process. For this reason, she has already built a very successful practice and will continue this same success for years to come. I highly endorse Diana for anyone who needs help with family law issues.
