My experience with Diana and Amy was seamless, thorough and completely nonjudgmental. I felt comfortable asking any questions I had and everything was explained to me very well. It can be intimidating to go through legal paperwork and I was given the time and attention I needed and did not feel intimated or rushed. I would recommend this firm to friends, family and other community members.
It was such a pleasure to work with Diana and her team. As a queer person of colour, I felt welcomed, safe and that I could ask any question without fear of judgment. The process of divorce felt incredibly daunting to me and I am grateful to have had a team to alleviate my anxieties and concerns. Thank you so much for your time and your commitment!
I was nervous about getting a "prenup," or even talking about it. I'm so glad I had Diana to help me through the process. She was reliable and prompt, made sure I understood the issues I needed to consider, and made sure my interests were protected in the final document that my husband and I signed. She's practical, thoughtful, and knowledgeable about the specific legal issues we face as a gay couple. I can't imagine a better experience.
Connecting with Diana and her team was a huge relief as we tried to work out how to complete a second parent adoption under somewhat unusual circumstances. After being told conflicting things by many other people, Diana efficiently and competently advised us on how to move forward; she truly is an expert in her field. Throughout the entire process, she was timely, professional, and flexible in meeting our needs while also communicating with a second, international lawyer involved in our case, in another language no less. The peace of mind knowing that Diana was our lawyer was priceless.
I searched high and low for legal assistance when I wanted to draw up a Known Donor Agreement with my spouse, even as we were also planning a divorce. Ours was an unusual situation that appeared to perplex a number of the lawyers I contacted during my research. Diana and her wonderful team, however, responded with clear and helpful information from the start. They made the process much more manageable, and were the only ones who made me feel comfortable and confident. I would absolutely recommend them and I envisage working with them again, myself, on other legal documents in the future.
I had an excellent experience with Andy Izenson and Diana Adams Law & Mediation. They were prompt, communicated effectively, and made sure I was involved and understood each step of the process. Andy was thorough, capable, and proactive. I'd highly recommend them and will engage them again the next time I need legal services.
Working with Diana and Amy to draft and sign a Living Will, Will, and POA was as smooth as I could imagine. They were kind and direct in answering questions I had & gave me ample space and support to think through what can be very emotional and complex topics and decisions. If ever I need legal services again, they will be the first people I contact.
One always hears about how much harder it is to divorce than to marry. And indeed the process of ending a marriage is both emotional and confusing anyway you look at it; especially when you and your spouse hail from different countries. That said, Diana's knowledge and sensitivity coupled with her wealth of experience and finesse made the process far less painful than expected. She truly knows her stuff and was able to help navigate it in a calm, attentive, easy to understand fashion that neutralized much of the inherent fear and intimidation. If you've found yourself in the difficult position of needing to end a union, I couldn't recommend Diana and her team highly enough to assist you in making it easier.
I am very pleased with the services I received with Diana Adams Law & Mediation. My lawyer Andy Izenson was very professional, dedicated and compassionate about his work. Andy was always available to answer my questions or concerns. I was very comfortable from beginning to end because I was thoroughly educated about the whole divorce process in full detail. I would definitely recommend using their services because they do great work and have an positive impact on people's lives. Thank you so much for helping me get my identity back.
I used Diana Adams Law & Mediation services to help me with my divorce. Andy acted as mediator between my now ex-wife and I. I'm very happy with Andy's work and he was able to have my ex and I come up with a fair agreement that also meant an emotional closure. My ex and I had lost contact for quite a while and we had lost trust in each other. She had moved abroad and that made it even more complicated. Andy was very good at setting expectations and following a procedure in which steps were taken gradually allowing for reflection between each interaction. However at some point the main conflicts were brought up and there was a critical moment when it seemed mediation wouldn't work. Andy was very good at managing that situation. He allowed each side to look at things from a different perspective taking into account each other's personalities. The mediation moved forward and we came up with a good solution. I am now a happy divorcee, convinced that we did the right thing and this also allowed me to have a healthy closure in my mind.
I attended a large, 40-50 person, consent and boundaries workshop facilitated by Andy last Winter. Andy was absolutely amazing at engaging difficult and emotional topics. They deftly navigated us through everything having to do with establishing consent and what to do if consent is breached. I have worked in sex education for years, and I still came away from Andy’s workshop feeling like I had learned a ton of new mental models for teaching consent to others. If you are looking for someone who will open up an engaging and enlightening conversation around consent with a mix of honesty, wit, and expertise, then Andy is absolutely the person you need to work with.
