Thankful I had Dina and James in my corner!
I was physically assaulted, somehow I was arrested? I spent a day in jail and had to defend myself from a family member who had assaulted me and lied. I am soooo glad I called Charnesky and Dieglio. Dina answered my call. I think it was a Sunday, she stayed on the phone and was very caring and competent and I hired her. Dina was knowledgeable, honest and forward about the charges. I live out of state and Dina and James went to court for me. My trial date was a while back and Dina and James were there for me. They were excellent and knew how to handle this case. The Judge ended up granting "acquitted-not guilty" -which is rare. I trusted them and I am so Thankful for them. I would not hesitate to hire them or recommend them!

Knowledgeable and Helpful
Dina is an amazing lawyer. She knows the law and is so helpful. She walked me through the whole process and was there for me every step of the way. The best decision I've ever made was to hire Dina Dieglio. I cannot begin to think of where I might have ended up without her.

Super Helpful
I know next to nothing about criminal law in the state of Arizona but I spoke with Ms. Dieglio and she was super helpful and knowledgeable about the steps I would need to take to resolve an outstanding matter.

Highly competent, confident, experienced and human
I met with Dina because she was highly recommended by a friend. I was not disappointed. She was highly skilled, confident, very focused and I immediately trusted her and hired her. It's so great to have a professional relationship with a person who is not only a fine attorney, but a fine human being as well. She was able to bring the case to the best possible conclusion. I think anyone who hired her or worked with her would be fortunate indeed.

A Shark Who Makes Jaws Look Like A Guppy
Given the severity of what could have happened if my case progressed through the court system – I was facing a tsunami of punition. Dina, while calmly spelling out the facts for me (because that's what attorneys do) also helped calm the waves of fear deep in my soul. But just like Moses, Dina hefted her legal staff and parted the waters, allowing me to reach the land of milk and honey by the short cut she had found. Dina’s retainer was more than fair. However, the expression: “worth her weight in gold” does not suffice here. Dina’s worth her weight in platinum. Attorneys are sometimes referred to as “sharks.” Well, this lady makes Jaws look like a guppy.

Excellent Representation
Dina and her partner James did an excellent job representing me in front of the prosecutor and court. They were able to convince the prosecutor to reduce the charges from a felony to a misdemeanor and to reduce the probation time to two years. They were very responsive to my needs and explained the process clearly. With their help, I got through a very bad experience.

Better than I could have ever hoped
I retained Dina when I was facing class 3 and 6 felony charges. Throughout the entire process Dina consistently made sure I was aware of how my case was progressing, and exactly what I would need to do along each step of the way, although she handled all the heavy lifting. There was never a time when I didn't know what the next challenges would be, and she made sure I understood how important (or not) each of them was. Throughout the time she represented me she was always the image of professionalism, and was consistently complimented by judges and court attendees for having documents prepared and submitted ahead of requirement. She knew exactly when to speak and what to say to make the judges happy and keep them that way (and we all know that happy judges give better verdicts, or at least mine did). Dina was able to negotiate for a plea deal better than I could have dreamed of, having the class 3 felony dropped and the class 6 to be knocked down to a class 1 misdemeanor after 2 years of probation. According to several other attorneys, this deal should not have been obtainable, but because of her good relationships with the judges and prosecutors she was able to arrange for a vary favorable plea agreement for me. Dina was absolutely amazing, and if anyone I know has problems in the future, I know who I will tell them to call.

FANTASTIC TEAM
I received a DUI in 2014 and hired James Charnesky and Dina Dieglio to help me. Her team was very qualified, timely, and effective. Not only did I win at the ADOT hearing, but they also got the prosecution to dismiss my DUI! I couldn't be happier with this firm. After meeting with four different attorneys, I'm so glad that I went with Charnesky & Dieglio. Thank you!

I Was Truly Impressed!
If encountering a DUI in Tucson, AZ. I would most highly recommend Dina Dieglio. I was new to the area and Mrs. Dieglio went out of her way to be more than just helpful with not only the laws here but with also with my circumstances. She explained to me in detail what exactly my options were and she was very honest and realistic. If you need DUI help I would recommend at minimum reaching out to her firm before making any commitments elsewhere. Honesty is always first priority!!!

huge help
Dina is a wonderful attorney. I was in a real tricky situation with a misdemeanor charge on a technicality. Dina listened to me explain the situation. She got me in right away. She helped me feel confident in her ability to take on the justice system to get me the best outcome. Dina was amazing and got me out of trouble! She is responsive, efficient and effective. Thank you Dina. I hope I stay out of trouble, but it's nice to know you are there if I need you!

Incredible
After my father got himself into a bit of trouble, it was my job to find him representation and I have to assume someone was looking out for him, because Dina is the lawyer I picked, and she was amazing. She was always very upfront and honest about what the situation was and what the potential outcomes would be based on what path my father decided to take. She always gave us very realistic expectations, and was incredibly hard working and patient. She, and Theresa, were always ready to answer any questions, explain any legal document, and keep us abreast of any new development. Dina is so good, that when I went to tell her of a new development in my father's case, not only was she already aware of the situation, but the necessary paperwork had already been filed. I can't recommend her enough. Getting into legal trouble is stressful enough. Having a lawyer who is not only good at her job, but also has the people skills needed to keep her clients from feeling like their lives are over makes all the difference in the world.

Excellent Results
I made a huge mistake at the beginning of this year and I needed to find a criminal defense attorney. My anxiety levels were through the roof with worries about my career and future. After consulting with 6 lawyers that anxiety didn't go down at all. Luckily my 7th consultation was with Dina. Immediately I felt much more at ease about what the outcome could be (While still being completely realistic) based on the actual facts of the case and my history, opposed to others who just read what the minimum and maximum sentences could be. I accepted full responsibility for my actions, Dina understood this and worked diligently during the pre-trial process to get a result that was as good as I could've hoped for. Her fee was extremely reasonable and I couldn't be any happier with the results.

The Right Choice!
After being pulled over and charged with extreme D.U.I. I felt I was doomed. I was in fear of losing my job and going to jail. Dina took my case and right away I knew I was in good hands. I never had any problems contacting her with questions I had. I was always kept informed of what was happening during the whole legal process. After reviewing all of the information from the police report and interviewing the arresting officer, Dina found that there was some potential for us to argue the legality of the stop by the officer. Dina moved to have a hearing before the judge to challenge the legality of the stop. It seemed a slim chance, but due to her thorough preparation and excellent presentation in front of the judge, police officer, and prosecuting attorneys the judge decided in our favor. My D.U.I.case was dismissed! Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner! Dina didn't stop there though. We still had to deal with the dreaded Motor Vehicle Division. With a phone call she was able to ensure that the suspension was removed from my driving record. Try that on your own, or through the public defenders office!! The very reasonable fee was money well spent

Case involving DUI and Stop Sign violation
I was in Tucson, AZ from Sacramento, CA for a funeral. I had driven all night after work to make it on-time. Following the services, my sister, brother-in-law and I spent five hours at dinner reminiscing. When I left dinner I was exhausted and drove directly to my hotel. En route, I rolled through a stop sign and was pulled over by a City of Tucson DUI officer. My exhaustion and lack of sleep demonstrated signs of intoxication when issued a number of sobriety tests and therefore I was issued citations for DUI and running a stop sign. Following my arrest, I was subjected to a mandatory breathe test which was well below the Arizona legal limit. Needless to say, the burden of defending my innocence was no longer in the hands of law enforcement. I interviewed three lawyers by telephone once I returned to California. Each responded professionally and promptly to my questions. I chose to work with Dina for four reasons. First, she thoroughly understood my situation based on her personal experience. Second, she gave me no false hopes when describing how my case could proceed. Third, she had resources (close working associates, e.g. assistant(s), other associate lawyers, etc.) immediately available. Four, her fee was quite reasonable. Once we contracted, she and her assistant went right to work. I was constantly informed of progress through emails, AND, most importantly, personal phone calls. Dina was successful in getting both the DUI and stop sign violation dismissed which was unexpected and overwhelmingly appreciated. I highly recommend Dina as her demeanor and work ethic are what you would expect from a professional lawyer. Thank you.

Fovever Grateful
Dina and her office were amazing to work with. They were there for me every step of the way. They can me hope, but not false hope. I eneded up getting my DUI dissmissed and they are still there for me. I really recommend Dina to everyone. Even if my case was not dismissed, they were just really great to work with. I remember when I was going through a hard time - Dina had some very nice words that helped get me through it. I am not an easy client- I am needy, ask a lot of questions and they helped me through it all. Thank YouDina and Theresa too!
