“I’m endlessly grateful to Diana”
After changing few attorneys who were unsuccessful in resolving my case, I’ve chosen going pro per. After few month doing so, I’ve found myself in a difficult situation, buried with endless aggressive paperwork coming from the opposite side usually right before the weekends, purposeful failures to serve the documents on time, attempts to lure me into signing agreements stating that “the court ordered us to do so”, failure to provide required paperwork to me, financial/time-share miscalculations, and more such things typical for aggressive course of family case. Lack of any legal background left me completely at other’s side lawyer’s mercy aggravating my situation even further. As one of the previous reviewers noted, California Family Law is too complicated and has too many nuances to be able to operate with it being proper. So, I started seeking for a legal help, advice, and assistance.
Diana agreed to meet with me even though she knew I won’t be able to afford her services for a full future representation. Diana was very kind spending few hours on reviewing my documents and my case history prior to our meeting. She grasped the core of the case right away and was fully prepared for our meeting. Not only that she helped me to prepare the appropriate form to file, but she also thoroughly explained me what should I state at the hearings, what should be my strategy, what’s the strategy of the other side and how most likely it’s going to unravel.
Unlike many other attorneys, Diana haven’t said that to me that I have no rights and better just surrender to the other side, or that she’s not willing to do things I needed to be done in my case because it demands too much of an effort, attention to the details, and the other side is determined to making it as hard and prolong as possible. She clearly recognized the aspect of not only legal but psychological pressure the other party was applying on me.
At the same time, Diana explained to me how the court sees my case, what’s the right procedural steps that should have been taken, what mistakes were done and whether it’s possible to repair them. Diana was very kind to prepare for me some notes for the law codes she checked, overview of my next steps and future strategy. She basically cleared my case from all the unnecessary “debris” and gave a fresh look on what’s really important.
Meeting with Diana gave me back my sense of certainty and security.
I would definitely recommend Diana. My impression is that she’s is a professional who cares for her clients and who not files paperwork without a particular purpose just for the sake or responding and charging for the time, but builds her strategy wisely and dedicates herself to the matter.
I’m endlessly grateful to Diana for seeing me, spending her time on my matter and addressing my financial hardship by giving me a discounted consultation, although for the quality of her services I wish I would be able to pay a full price.
