Finding Diana was truly a blessing during a very trying time. Her knowledge of family law is what I needed and expected – however – she went far beyond that. She listened, she advised and she cared. Diana fully prepared me for my custody case from the first mediation through trial, and always with my son’s best interest at the forefront. I never felt like I was just another case to her, she made me feel like my case was her priority. Diana’s presence in the court room was strong, confident and reassuring. She was thoroughly prepared and had a clear understanding of the courts procedures and preferences. Thank you Diana!

For the last five years, I was handling all of my families legal matters on my own without representation , but I knew I wanted and needed legal help for what I desired. I originally sought out other help, however, that firm told me they could not assist me, but did however, refer me to Ms. Schimmel. This could not have been better for my family and I. The day we met, Ms. Schimmel did have other clients she needed to prepare for, but she sacrificed some of her personal time and gave me the chance to come and meet with her. From that meeting, I knew she was the best choice for us, because she made herself available to listen to me, what my family and I were facing, and what I desired the outcome to be, and she walked me through each step my process would take. She is very knowledgeable in her field, and has shown herself very capable in action. When ever I have questions or concerns, she is quick to respond to them and provides me with reassuring answers. She is very respectful and sensitive to my family issues and has been there every step of the way. She and her office are professional, accommodating, and I have no complaints, and have much confidence that the result we have been working towards is in clear view.

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.
