Law & Mediation for All Families

Diana Adams Law & Mediation, PLLC is a boutique law firm, founded in 2007, practicing family law by providing support for positive beginnings and endings of all types of family relationships. We provide services for intentional family formation, including creative prenuptial agreements, assisted reproduction, adoptions, co-parenting agreements and nontraditional family arrangements, as well as for out-of-court family dissolution, including divorces, using Mediation and Collaborative Law even in cases of high conflict.


We often work with clients in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and queer communities, clients in the polyamory and kink communities, clients in other nontraditional families such as grandparent child guardians, single parents, and blended families, and clients who seek more traditional family law support for divorce, child custody, or adoptions. Whatever your family situation, our attorneys will advocate for your rights and support your self-determination as a parent, partner, or family. 


Our practice uses Mediation and Collaborative Law in all areas of our client work, helping our clients use their creativity and compassion to resolve disputes and make positive plans for their futures and the futures of their families. We prioritize avoiding litigation, keeping agency and decision-making power over our clients’ family lives in their own hands, rather than giving it up to a court that may not respect or understand their self-determination. Staying out of court also minimizes the time and legal fees involved in our representation, making it more accessible to more members of our communities.

Our office is located in New York City, and our attorneys practice in all five boroughs of NYC. We also maintain a satellite office in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, serving Americans in Europe.
