About me

A native of Bakersfield, I knew by the age of 7 that I wanted to be an attorney. As the captain of the Debate Team my senior year at West High School, I was taught never to back down from an argument that I believed in. In college, after cross-examining an officer as a pro se defendant in my own speeding ticket trial and having the judge sustain some of my objections to the officer's testimony, I knew that this was the area of law I wanted to enter, and haven't looked back since. Those experiences in school prepared me for advocating and preserving the rights of my clients and overcoming any adversity that may present itself. TEAM INNOCENT!!

  • Frank Thomas Gomez

    I endorse this lawyer. Diane is very knowledgeable with respect to California DUI law. I greatly appreciate her assistance when I have clients here in Georgia with California drivers licenses and I need to know any possible California ramifications to the dispositions of their Georgia cases.

  • Carrie Christine Fiedler

    I highly recommend Diane for DUI defense. Few lawyers can actually actually translate protecting the rights of people arrested for drunk driving into an acquittal like Diane can.
