Practice area

My family law career began in 2009 at a well known family law firm in the Los Angeles practiced there for three years before moving to Arizona in 2013. After working at several highly regarded family law firms in Scottsdale, I established my own family law practice, Baskind Family Law, in 2020. My practice focuses on dissolution of marriage (divorce), legal separation, child support, paternity (unmarried parents), legal decision-making/parenting time (formerly "custody"), spousal maintenance, modifications, enforcement of existing orders, and relocations.

Personally, I enjoy domestic and international travel, fitness, and spending time with my family.

Professional Straight Shooter
Diana is amazing. She is straight to the point. She makes it very clear where your money is going. She is smart and definitely in control at all times. If you are looking for a lawyer who is going to dry your tears and listen to your drama look elsewhere. She is on your side enough to be straight with you to let you know that she is not your counselor. I knew where I was at in my case. She made it clear what to fight for and what to dismiss. She was beyond pleasant but 100% professional at all times. When you go into court you have a precise reasonable plan which makes you look good in front of the judge. She's knows her stuff.

Absolutely Fantastic - the best!
I am so pleased to have worked with Diana. My case was extremely complex facing some challenging issues as well as a very uncooperative aggressive ex spouse. The opposing lawyer used every tactic of intimidation possible, sopeanas, accusations, depositions, never ending letters, through it all Diana was incredibly supportive both personally and professionally. She took the time to explain all the issues, helped to relieve anxiety I was feeling through the process, was sensitive to timing and was responsive. In court she was outstanding, sticking to the facts, asking questions in a way that were effecient, precise and allowed us to tackle all the issues in a compelling and honest way. I believe we achieved a very positive result thanks to Diana's preperation, her communication and her professionalism. She was always concious of cost and was extremely fair helping to guide me through areas that would keep the expense reasonable. I honestly cant say enough positive things about Diana and the Marquis law firm. They were absolutely amazing and I am so grateful to have had Diana as my lawyer through what the most difficult thing I have ever experienced. I highly recommend Diana to anyone seeking a fair, honest, personable, professional and highly capable lawyer.

Honest, Professional and Compassionate
You couldn't ask for a more down to earth and honest attorney. Diana was kind and made sure that I knew everything that was going on in my case. She didn't make any false promises and she kept everything in perspective. When it came to a field that she wasn't to comfortable she was up front and honest (rare for an attorney!) she would give a recommendation for the fields she wasn't familiar with and it ended up helping a great deal and in the end helped save us a little money too! That's the other thing, my previous attorney was very expensive and was eager to get more money every time I turned around, not Diana! She was not out to bleed me dry of my finances. She was more than fair! My only regret is that I didn't hire Diana first. Thank you Diana, I know my case wasn't easy and though it was a stalemate you represented me professionally more than what I can say for the opposing counsel. Thank you for everything.

Quick and Helpful
Ms. Diana Baskind was able to help me with a deposition and several conflict issues with an aggressive attorney, that was trying to scare me, because I did not have an attorney at the time. During my consult she did not promise me anything, she told me what my rights were and the things I could do to resolve them. It is important to know that winning is not an option when it comes to custody issues. Reality is what I found most important when I asked her my questions. She is very professional and caring in which you do not find with many attorneys. She answers my panicked emails promptly and has never left me hanging. Just know that when you hire her, she is honest and will do her best to try and help you. I am a firm believer in paying for services and getting your monies worth. It is not the easiest to battle difficult people in court, it is much easier to use a professional like Diana Baskind.

A+ Professional
My daughter and I retained the services of Diana Baskind. Ms Baskind was successful in presenting to the Court that my two autistic grandchildren required consistency and structure to succeed in school and their social environments. During trial, Ms Baskind presented the facts of our case in a prepared, fluent and professional manner. It was perceptible that the Court enjoyed Ms Baskind's presentation of evidence and her ability to address the Court's questions without hesitation and on point. Family law matters are particularly difficult when considering the emotional struggles involved. Ms. Baskind listened patiently and understood our concerns, while remaining objective and forthright. I highly recommend Ms Baskind and, without any pause, encourage those seeking legal representation to contact her.

A true professional
My late father practiced law in the Valley for 30 years. As a consequence, I knew better than not to seek counsel to represent me in a Modification of Child Custody/Parenting Time and Child Support matter, sought by my ex-husband. Fortunately, I found Diana Baskind - after interviewing several lawyers. At the outset, I found Diana to be up-front, not boastful or promising things I wanted to hear. Instead, Diana's approach was to confirm how the Courts usually view my particular circumstances under the law -- eight years post-divorce and two children with disabilities. At trial, I found Diana to be very prepared and professional. It was clear during trial that the Court favored her pre-trial work including pleadings, demeanor, preparedness and the handling of testimony given by my ex-husband and myself. Prior to trial, Diana worked with me to confirm my testimony, voluminous facts, medical records and exhibits. Needless to say, we were victorious at trial and without Diana this would not have been possible. Without any reluctance, I highly recommend Diana for anyone seeking legal representation in family law. I applaud Diana for listening endlessly to my concerns and stories relating to my ex-husband. She hand-held me through the emotional year long process with patience and friendship.

Diana Baskind
I found Mrs. Baskind to be well-versed in family law, and was an extremely personable attorney to work with. She is attentive to your needs as an individual client and is aware of your situation in its entirety. Her friendly demeanor and attention to using funds responsibly is just another reason to retain her legal services.

I appreciate everything that she has done for me. Diana made me feel comfortable and safe through out the legal process. I highly recommend her.

Diana is professional and knows what she is doing!!!
I hired Diana to help me get my Child Custody and Support modified. I did not hire a lawyer my first time around and learned a HUGE lesson!!! Diana was upfront and set realistic expectations and didn't over-promise. She told me what I could do on my own (initial mediation where a lawyer is not allowed anyways) and when it would be best to bring her on. This saved me money by waiting until after mediation to see if that would work first; which it didn't. Diana kept me up to speed on the case and what I needed to provide her. We met to discuss court before we entered so I was fully prepared on what to expect. She is very professional and knows her stuff! A big thank you to Diana!!!!
