Testimonials:

      • I know there’s still more to do but I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your support and help. It’s been an immense relief to know that you have been looking out for my best interests.
        You are easy to talk to and patient with explanations, a good person.
      • I have found divorce – while necessary at times – very difficult struggle, with so many facets. My parents have been dead for many years, and I’ve sure missed them through all of this and for my children’s sake, but I am very grateful for the love and support and guidance I have received from the various people in my life. Each has had a role to play and been a real gift to me and my children moving forward (even though it’s still very hard on them), and you are one of them, Diana.
        You should feel very proud of the work you do. Thank you for your role in my life.
      • Diana Richmond has helped me tremendously when I thought I would be left with nothing, her knowledge of family law proved to me that I deserved more than I ever thought I was entitled to.  She is caring and compassionate and understood my situation without much explanation. She was/is always there when I need to explain myself over the phone or in person to assuage my fears.  She fought hard for me, she is tough but fair as you have to be when there are children involved. She knew what was best for me even when I didn’t. Follow her advice and you will not be disappointed. I don’t know where I or my family would be without her.
      • I’m enjoying my new home, and am thankful that we moved quickly on this divorce. I think back to when he was asking for more lines of credit a year ago and you said to serve him. I fear I may have had nothing left if this had gone on for a longer time. Thanks for your help and guidance on this messy situation
