I am  the daughter of immigrants and became a lawyer because I wanted to help my family and families like mine.


My values are those ingrained by my father – serve others and do it well. So long as you do, life will be good to you. I have a deep sense of purpose and find meaning in the work that I do for my clients. I understand my clients because I see myself and my family in them, I come from a humble background and understand the fears and emotions that may run through the mind of a working class family when they face a legal problem. It is important to me that my clients feel safe and have trust in me and in the fact that I will be their fierce advocate and that they will have a voice through me. I have a passion for helping others and advocating for them because I did it all my life – helping my family navigate legal situations, translating calls and writing letters.


My upbringing gifted me with a kind heart and an ability to empathize. This is important for me because it allows me to better feel and tell my client’s story. But I also have the heart of a lion protecting her cub. When my client is in my office, he or she will feel protected and taken care of but when I am in court or facing off the other side, I am the fiercest advocate for my client.


All of this is what makes me the lawyer you should choose to help you. I treat my clients the way I would want my father or other family member to be treated – with dignity. You are not just a number to me. If I take your case, it is because I believe in it and I believe in you.


I put the time into each case in order to recover maximum value for my client. My professional reputation is that of a fierce advocate yet compassionate person. I am picky with my cases so I can give each client full attention at essential points in the case.


My favorite part of my job is the satisfaction in a client’s face (sometimes they cry, most of the time they give me a big hug) when their case is resolved. But I especially like when my clients (because they are so grateful) bring lunch, flowers or even handmade gifts to my office. 


The satisfaction of helping another cannot be measured in monetary     value, it is priceless.

Excellent Lawyer
I highly recommend her. Diana may be a woman but do not let that fool you. She takes her job very serious and works hard to get the best settlement for you which made me more than comfortable enough for her to take on my case. Diana is better and tougher than a lot of male lawyers I came across. She is also really kind with her clients which was a plus for me because other lawyers do not treat their clients with the same respect.

Best lawyer ever
Looking for a good lawyer? Look no further. Diana Lopez is amazing at what she does. She'll get the job done and done right. I had her for a few years and seeing her every time we had to discuss about my case I felt like I was in good hands. She knew exactly what she was doing so I felt comfortable letting her handle my case. I definitely recommend her. She speaks English and Spanish as well.

When justice needed to be served
When justice needed to be served, I reached out to a dear friend of mine. He is also an attorney and he assured me that his respected colleague, Diana Lopez, would have some great insight for me. I was very interested and needed someone on my side. I was a little desperate, but careful to trust. The way I was maltreated was frustrating and Diana got to the bottom of many laws that my former employer violated, that I did not even know about. She is very intelligent, precise, detailed and efficient at her job. She was very professional, yet easy to talk to at the same time. She always made time for my email, calls and silly questions no matter how busy she was. Diana had a lot on her plate already when I first introduced her to my case, but she assured me that with patience she would provide the greatest focus and diligence. I liked best how Diana represented me in a very sophisticated and hard-working nature to my former employer. I try extremely hard to be professional in the workplace and I value that she was able to portray that of me during this "battle" between them and us. I appreciate what Diana has done for me so much. She has not only helped me to be at ease with that situation in my life, but she has brought justice where my previous employer needed a rude awakening. Thank you Diana for everything. You are great at what you do and you should feel good that you've made the world a little bit better to live in :D

Financial Matter
I had the pleasure of working with Diana 2 years ago on a financial dispute with an ex acquaintance. She was very knowledgeable on this matter and always stayed professional.She was understanding of the situation and made me feel very confident that we could win the case. In the end she successfully won my case and has made my life a whole lot better. Great to work with!
