Having litigated cases for 23 years, I know how anxious my clients get. The case seems to take forever and their lives are on hold. At least that is what they tell me. I just knew there had to be a better way to resolve differences. When I found Collaborative Law, I knew that was it. Not only does this process address the legal disagreement, it strives to help clients make peace with the situation. Without acceptance, the situation just returns in the client's life. That does not do anyone any good. It just promotes a revolving door of litigation. The better solution is to resolve the matter so that the client can move on with his or her life. Helping my client actually resolve a problem is who I am.

Attorney Dianna Anelli responded quickly to my consultation request. During the consultation, she asked appropriate questions, analyzed the problem quickly and gave me precise, clear, direct answers. Although the answers weren't what I wanted to hear, her professional response and explanations assured me not to waste my time and money trying to pursue something that couldn't be corrected through the courts.

HEART
I used the word heart for the review title because Dianna has and continues to put 120% and All of her heart into her work for me. I can NOT say enough about her strength and her ability to do this work. She came in to my case after 7 years of court history and my 3rd lawyer. No other lawyer or Human that I know can do the things she can. She can remember timelines and dates better then I can. My child and I have suffered a great deal thru this case. Many times Dianna and I have shared tears thru this litigation. Her heart is in it. This is why you would want and need her as your lawyer. If you are thinking of hiring Dianna feel free to call me for any question you may have. B

Didn't know I needed a lawyer when I got fired.
I was let go from a job after 14 years when my job was eliminated. Dianna Anelli reviewed the severance package and found I was nine days short of 14 years so my offer was $ short. The company lawyers expect to put terminated employees in tough spots so they rush to sign and don't get what is fair. Dianna Anelli advised me of their tactics, wrote letters and made calls on my behalf and got me a fair severance. I was not only better off financially but also emotionally. She took care of everything while I moved on and found a new job. I forever grateful and highly recommend Dianna Anelli.

Zeal, Skill, and Compassion
I often have the privilege of representing other lawyers. I had occasion to retain Dianna to utilize Dianna's specialized skills in dealing with the legal community's power structure. She acted with grace and compassion for our client to achieve the best possible resolution on behalf of my/our client.

Exceptional experience
Dianna helped me by writing a commercial property contract and a letter to a previous renter. Both needs were met with her consultative expertise and expediency. Fair price and acceptable turnaround.
