Simply ... the best!
Debora Diaz will get the job done! She is straight forward, hard working, dependable and honest. She under promises and over delivers. I've worked with several family law attorneys in Pasco County over a 10 year period and she is, by far, the absolute best!

Attorney that can help
I hired Debora because I wanted a calm, amicable divorce. Sometime things happen and they cannot be solved, that doesn't mean that you have to harbor anger and hatred. Debora was able to work with me through the process and helped us get to the end without all of the battles that you so often hear about. Her calm, caring and collected personality is just what I needed.

Family Attorney
I contacted Debora to consult me on a family law matter. She was flexible to meet me where it was convenient for me. She heard my concerns, assessed the situation, shared her honest advice and helped give me a better perspective on what my potential next steps were in my situation. Debora tells you what you need to hear not what you want to hear. Honesty and integrity are two traits Debora exemplified with me. I would highly recommend anyone hiring her.

Simply the best
Ms Diaz wants what is best for the children involved in her cases and isn't afraid to fight for them. She is kind, smart, direct and connected. After 10 years and 3 attorneys, I was referred to Ms Diaz and am eternally grateful. She is a matter of fact, straight talker. She is realistic and purposeful in every conversation. Doing what was right for my child was her priority. Ms Diaz doesn't hide behind legal jargon, a big ego or her best interests. She told me the plan, the anticipated price, accepted my retainer and got to work. Her connections with the local legal community proved to be a force unmatched by others. She's not afraid to reach out to fellow, opposing attorneys to be the voice for the children involved. It wasn't needed, but Ms Diaz was prepared to work with expert witnesses, guardian ad litems and other professionals to build a case in my child's best interest. She knew just what to say and how much to say to move the case quickly to resolution. She doesn't make lofty promises. What she does promise is to deliver and she does not fail in doing just that. My child is happier thanks to the workings of Ms Diaz and her genuine care to keep the child's best interest in the forefront of the case. After 10 long years, my child and I can finally completely emerse ourselves in our new blended family, with no reservations or constantly looking over our shoulders. We get to live life and enjoy every aspect of it. Thanks to Ms Diaz, my son can officially call his stepfather 'Dad' without worrying about the interference of a person who didn't want to be a positive influence on his life, but only a dictator with an iron fist. My son sleeps better, smiles bigger and feels more confident in who he is. Any anger and outbursts have disappeared and he's bringing home straight A's that we are all proud of! Ms Diaz heard what my son needed and worked to make his life better. With just a few facts and stories, she knew what was needed to end the sleeping cell, controlling nightmare that was a cancer in our lives. She not only knew what to do but she effectively and quickly executed a successful plan. I couldn't be happier with Ms Diaz and her expertise. She doesn't promise results, but she promises to fight for what is right and just. I believed in her and her abilities. I'm so glad I did! She succeeded where everyone else only pushed papers, set hearings and ran up billable hours. I would and will recommend her to any person needing family law representation!

Best experience with Attorney
I want to say I have had Attorney Debora Diaz represent me in the past on more then one occasion and must say without doubt the outcome could not have been any better. She answered all my questions and took my calls personally which was very important to me. In my past not such the case with other attorneys that I have used. Thanks

My friend and outstanding counsel
I have the privilege of having Debora as our family attorney for 21 years. She has not alone become a close friend, but a trusted counsel for over 21 years. You don’t need a great attorney, until you need an attorney. (Believe me) In today day and age, take my advice, don't mess around…hire the best attorney for the job, Debora. It has been a privilege to recommend her valued services over the years to the financial families that I serve. It is gratifying to associate with an individual that the dedication to doing a great job, her efforts as sincerely appreciated over and over again.
