About Deirdre

Learn Deirdre’s areas of practice.

The reason for the discipline imposed by the State Bar had nothing to do with my law practice or my abilities.  It arose from a domestic dispute.  I received many, many letters of support from my collegues.

Would use her again!!
Recommended by a friend, went to meet her and hired her! Due to Covid the settlement took much longer than expected but she won 100%. She also has great staff working for her!

Helpful and Honest
I can’t recommend Diedre enough. A friend suggested her to help me with a complex multi-car crash. Diedre is everything I was looking for in a lawyer. She’s very thourough, works hard on your behalf, tells it like it is, and is incredibly honest. Working together Diedre and I agreed it doesn’t make sense for me to hire her in my specific situation, but she’s offered to continue to help answer questions and go over paperwork as I need it. It’s very refreshing to work with a lawyer who’s primary goal really is to help people.

Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"I worked for Deirdre during law school and have consulted with her on PI matters for years. She is the only PI attorney I refer friends and family to and I would hire her to handle my own injury. She is a pitbull and will take the insurance companies to task for her clients. She is also fair in her fee compensation and truly works for her clients. She is no nonsense and will fight for what needs to be fought for."
