Great Lawyer
I was in need for a child family lawyer and found Jay Diamond from Diamond Law Firm. We hired Jay to help us with a custody issues. He was excellent, and was in contact with me through every step. We were so please that we hired him again to do an adoption. What a fantastic job he did to help us reach our goal. If anyone needs a great lawyer. I would highly recommend Diamond Law Firm. Thank you Jay Diamond

Children’s best interest come first.
He was able to get my ex to break. Dealing with a narcissist is extremely difficult. He was able to navigate around my ex’s manipulative behavior and focus on what was on the line. My children’s best interest were in mind the whole way. At the end of the ordeal, I got my son back.

Easy Handling of a difficult case
I highly recommend Mr. Diamond. I was involved in a complicated and messy divorce with an abusive (physically and emotionally) person who continued to dodge being served. Mr. Diamond helped me get through the entire process expeditiously and seamlessly.

Jay is the best!
I was in a car accident last year, and Jay was a huge help with my tickets, and dealing with my insurance company— I would highly recommend him!

Jay Diamond
I Recently hired Mr. Diamond to represent my son. He was quick to respond to my call, reacted to my needs in a decisive and professional manner. Mr. Diamond exhibited a behavior that was reassuring, concise and to the point with appropriate measures to be followed with the court system. His follow up was exemplary. On a personal note, he would follow up with me to ensure that I was okay or if I needed anything throughout the process which was reassuring and meant a lot to me personally.

Integrity. Compassion. Professional.
Mr. Diamond has helped me with several cases from divorce to my Moms passing. He traveled to meet with her in person and she immediately adored him. I recommend J Diamond as no matter what time of day or even on weekends he returns messages and calls/texts. He will continue to handle all of my personal and business needs. I send his info to all of my friends when they are in search of great legal representation.

I love my lawyer he is a God send.
I have a very unique case and throughout this process it has been a learning curve for the both of us. But together we have overcame every obstacle. Jay is so very kind and compassionate he truly cares about his clients, it's not just about money. He wants whats best for his clients and he fights for whats RIGHT!! My case is still ongoing and I have all confidence that Jay will see it through to the end with all that he has and the outcome will be in our favor. Not only because he is a good lawyer but because its whats right!! I know with all my heart My lord and savior Jesus Christ sent this man to me because he sees his heart and how pure and true it is.

Explains every step of the process clearly
J. Diamond helped me through a separation and divorce. He explained clearly every step of the process, was on time and prepared for filings and with paperwork, and was always available to take my calls when I had questions. The personal attention I received made me more at ease with the unfamiliar proceedings of the court system. I was well pleased with the outcome due to his help.

Saved my world.
I owned a restaurant with my husband and my small child. When my husband passed away I didn’t have any extra money to have the succession done. Mr. Diamond saw my plight and worked with me to make sure it got finalized at the most reasonable rate I had been offered. He has now handled all my attorney needs. He is very skilled at his craft and an upstanding human being. Without his help I would have lost my house.

Hired!!
My experience with Mr Diamond was great. He approached my situation head on and changed my life for the better. He has absolutely great communication with his clients and is there for YOU. A review doesnt do justice for what he has done for me and my kids. He is highly recommended and I would choose him a thousand times over. Thank you Mr J

GREAT Attorney
I loved having Jay as an attorney for me. He is always available and devoted to understanding the case that is at hand. He is very reasonable and understands when finances can be tough for you, but never leaves you hanging. Was always by my side through the case and I always felt safe while jay was next to me in the court room. Diamond law firm also has a team of paralegals that are always available and willing to help out with your case at any given time. I would definitely recommend this law firm to anyone who is seeking a prestige law firm to handle the case!
