[My spouse] and I came to your office with an unusual situation that could have been very volatile.

I am forever grateful
Diana Martinez helped us through a difficult time using her mediator skills. She was patient, thorough and non-judgmental. She facilitated a process for us that brought us to a place of consensus and closure. I highly recommend her services.
As a "past client", I also consider her a trusted friend. I have seen her speak at seminars and I believe that she has a passion for her field of collaborative divorce and mediation services. She is patient, thorough and non-judgmental. I highly recommend her services.
Diana was my attorney in our collaborative divorce. While working with her over the past year, I've felt that I was in very competent hands. I appreciate her knowledge, integrity and attention to detail. She truly cares about her clients and works hard to achieve equitable results. Above all, I respect her ethics - a rare virtue in the legal divorce world. I would recommend her without reservation!!!!!
I am a licensed psychotherapist, with certifications in Mediation and with extensive training in Collaborative Divorce processes. I have known Diana L. Martinez professionally for several years. During that time we have worked together on a number of mediation and collaborative divorce cases. We have also served together on the Board of Directors of a non-profit organization so I have gotten to know Diana well in a variety of settings. I have always experienced Diana as an exceptionally competent Collaborative Attorney and Mediator who is respected by her colleagues for her, knowledge, skill, integrity, and attention to detail. I have seen first hand that clients hold her in high regard and feel they are well served by her. Diana is also a compassionate person whose ethics can be trusted without reservation. I frequently recommend Diana to clients, friends and family and will continue to do so with the highest confidence.
It has been my privilege and honor to know Diana L. Martinez for many years and to have worked with her on numerous mediation and collaborative divorce cases. Not only have I found Diana to be a very honest and trustful individual, I also have found her to be an extremely ethical attorney - something not common among attorneys in the adversarial divorce system. Diana has consistently and repeatedly shown nothing but the highest level of professionalism in dealing with her clients, as well as with the other professionals with whom she works. Diana sets a very high standard for herself and others; her character is unreproachable. I would not hesitate to proudly recommend her to family, friends, and acquaintances alike.
Diana L Martinez was my attorney for my collaborative divorce. I could not speak more highly of her. She always had my best interests in mind while at the same time keeping the process completely "collaborative". She is extremely ethical and was always easy to get a hold of and to talk with. She was very understanding and empathetic, putting me at ease and being proactive regarding my concerns. She really had to go above and beyond as the other attorney who had agreed to work collaborative, but did not have the experience or knowledge, therefore it put a lot of the burden of the work on Diana. She was amazing and I am very grateful that I chose her to help me through the process.
