finding a great lawyer
Finding a great lawyer is like fishing for a needle in a haystack. But this one stands out for many reasons. If you want a person that will stand by you through the end, Diane is the one. She will fight for your requests. She will cut out unnecessary language & requests from the opposing side; going through each page. She’ll let you know if what you want is valid to fight for, or just a waste of your time & money. She will communicate with you periodically so you are aware of the progress of your case. She will explain legal terms in layman’s terms so you can understand. She will explain to you the pros and cons of potential outcomes; because she has the experience and does not want you to be blindsided in any way. Through the whole process, she will work with you and the other side to create an acceptable, positive resolution using mediation; so you don’t end up at a court trial. She is available to reach by phone or email, and will respond back to you via her assistant, or many times personally. She has reasonable rates and is flexible enough to reschedule your appointment when life happens to you. She will stay calm and treat you with professionalism through the tough times when the other side is putting on the pressure and in court. A person recommended her and I’m glad. She won’t burn a hole in your pocket, and will get everything done that needs to be done. All I can say is, if you want a lawyer who will do all of the above and more for you; you need to hire her now! Thanks

Wonderful
Diane has been an advocate for my children and I. She has expertise in law as well as in life and relationships. She takes the time to know you as a client and truly cares about the best interest and welfare of others. Thank you Diane.

Not a strong atty in the courtroom, not prepared, etc.
Would NOT recommend Diane Kaer. She talks big when you first meet her, but then she gets in the court room and acts like a scared little school girl talking to the judge, struggling to speak and appear knowledgeable. Didn't appear prepared at all. She is not a personable atty that you can have an effective conversation with; she cuts you off mid sentence alot. We figured if she was this rude to us as clients she would be strong and rude to shut down the other atty. WRONG! The other atty walked all over her because she wasn't prepared and didn't listen to us enough to get the history of our case. We spent alot of money with her and were worse off after having her representation.
