Working with Diana was a gift from God. I knew my divorce was going to be messy - our break-up was disastrous - but Diana was fabulous at mitigating the items and dividing it up so that we were both happy. Or perhaps satisfied is a better word - nothing about divorce is happy. Anyway, she was amazing. She knew just the right things to say and kept both of us in our chairs the whole process, which is quite a feat, I assure you. She has a very calming effect. I enjoyed working with her and she's good at what she does. Definitely the kind of woman you want on your side.

I appreciated how when my husband of 23 years and I were getting divorced, we didn't need to go through the courts and were able to settle our divorce without either of us paying a small fortune to lawyers and the courts to get everything straightened out.
I liked that they were there to help us reach a fair and reasonable settlement and that we didn't need to be at the coruthouse every week to get things settled. It was refreshing to be able to speak my mind about some of the things that I was looking for and I like that they stress peace in the process rather than what than taking everything a piece at a time. It's a more holistic approach to divorce that allows for some emotional healing along the way.
Though this is my second divorce, I wouldn't have aproached it any other way. Courts are too draining and being able to negotiate a fair divorce and settlement with mediation was a very good choice for us.

Diana's dedication to her work and sense of humour made what was the darkest hour of my life slightly more bearable. The folks at Peace Talks could scarcely be more friendly and helpful. When I had questions or concerns they were handled promptly and in a professional manner.
Except for..You know, the whole divorce thing I couldn't be happier!

I endorse this lawyer's work. She is one of the smartest attorneys I know and her practice -Peace-Talks - is a model for mediation of family law matters in Los Angeles. I highly recommend Diana who wishes to resolve matters cooperatively in a mediation context.
