Collaborative Common Sense Approach
I was initially assigned Diane for limited case management (LCM) through family court when I was a young mother. Her approach then helped two young parents understand that the alternative dispute process wasn't about "us" but about what was best about our child. The lessons and experience carried through and I subsequently hired Diane for later cases. Diane brings a calm, rational, but collaborative presence to any process. She's extremely knowledgeable and seeks to have a relationship with her clients beyond pushing another case through court. Diane was invested in positive outcomes for our case and was willing to wait it out at times, letting the other party cool off a little, in order to achieve the results that were in the best interest of all.

Family Law
Mrs. Sherwood is a dedicated professional who cares about her clients and their families. In my specific case I was ignorant of the law; being push around by big money, Diane made the situation better by giving me options and strategy that would achieve more equal time with my child. Diane is an advocate for families not just the parents. Diane listened and executed. She is the lion that guards the flock.

Trustworthy without the usual legal BS
Was very thorough in her advice regarding my collaborative divorce settlement. Responded in a timely fashion to inquiries and helped me expedite the resolution of my divorce without unnecessarily increasing my legal costs. Am also going to have her change my estate plan now that I am divorced.

Good to have on your side
In 2009, after ten years together, my ex took our two children and disappeared. Diane not only helped me find my children she also helped find an attorney in California ,where my children were taken, and helped me get parental rights in California and Kansas both. She has stuck by me when other Attorneys would have given up. I would highly recommend her.
