Mrs. Zuckerman is the most trustworthy attorney I have ever had representing me and my daughter. Diane is a beautiful attorney who will support, guide, and represent you until the end. I usually do not trust any attorney and monitor everything they do but with Diane I totally trust her advice, her judgment, and her leadership. I never thought an attorney like her existed until now. I am blessed to have her representing our guardianship case.

I highly recommend Diane Zuckerman. I contacted her recently with questions about probate, estate and certifying a will. She returned my calls and emails in a timely manner. She was very methodical in talking to me about my case, thus she was able to logically identify what needed to be accomplished. She laid out an approach and was forthcoming in what the cost would be. I felt very confident in her ability and knowledge.
I had previously used Diane about a year ago to write a Power of Attorney and Health Surrogate. Both those documents are outstanding. I was able to accomplish everything from selling a house to setting up bank accounts. Diane went the extra mile since I was in town a brief time, and immediately went to see my brother in the Rehab Center and spoke with him and notarized the documents. I was very thankful and very impressed.
Again, I would strongly recommend Diane Zuckerman for your attorney.
