Papers were prepared and a hearing was held in state court resulting in a positive outcome and a ruling by the court granting all our requests.

I am extremely pleased with the legal representation provided to me by Diana Zitser. Esq. I met her at a very emotionally and financially difficult time in my life, and she was there for me every step of the way, as my divorce case unfolded.

Her approach was fair and pragmatic yet creative and she had the knowledge and experience to know how to get me through my case in a truly dignified way. I highly recommend her.
She is an excellent attorney - would highly recommend her!
Diana Zitser took over my divorce case three years after it started. Issues which seemed standard and straightforward all turned out to be highly disputed and complex, complicated further by a non-cooperative, litigious opposing party and my own diagnosis of a chronic disease. Property division included multiple businesses which introduced a whole host of related issues of partnership, valuation, compensation, income tracing, reimbursement, accounting and taxation. Noncompliance with court orders created issues of enforcement, collection, and payment of attorney fees. Diana was every bit the dedicated professional and fierce advocate, but also the compassionate and patient collaborator. She mastered the facts and issues and expertly handled the many court hearings, depositions, trial, arbitration, and negotiations. Being an outstanding writer, Diana impressed me with her wit, her ability to simplify and clearly communicate technical issues and to craft successful arguments.
If you are needing a divorce lawyer, your life is probably pretty busy and somewhat chaotic, so I will be brief. Diana Zitser, for me, was a solid choice for these reasons. Diana Zitser has many professional and personal qualities that for me were beneficial. They may be for you, as well. One, I felt like we were in it together. Diana made me feel like we were a team. She, and her team, stood with me through the journey. Two, wisdom. Diana has wisdom. For instance, during a challenging time early in my process, things were confusing and wildly emotional. “No drama,” Diana advises me. Her words were simple, short and profound. And they served me very well. Three, freedom to make my own choice. Diana would always advise me, and then allow me to make the choice. She would describe the different path or strategy, and then give me the power, and the time, if available, to choose. Four, experience. When sailing in new and often turbulent waters, it was essential to have someone with the poise and experience to navigate. Diana has both poise and experience. Five, courage. This was, at times, an intense arena. Diana had the courage and grit to do battle when necessary. Six, Diana is likable and fun. This may seem an unlikely, or even unnecessary, quality in this profession. However, for me, it truly helped. Looking back on this challenging time of my life, I have fond memories of laughing and bonding with Diana. This was an overwhelming, confusing time for me. I understand it may be for you, as well. I hope this helps. I wish you luck with your journey.
Diana perfectly predicted everything the judge would say and do in court. She helped diligently prepare with me before court which proved valuable as the judge made mention of several of the items we prepared as he made his decisions. Diana's office was always responsive and friendly and helped keep things moving. I appreciate their efforts and would highly recommend Diana and her office.
Diana was my divorce attorney in 2014. I had a messy case, a child custody battle to fighting for financial support for my children and I requested to move out of state, as their father was a danger to us. It took some time, but Diana was not only able to get me full sole custody of my two young children, but was also able to fight for my move out of the state to be with my family. Diana never gave up she was always one step ahead. Her quick responsiveness, analytical skills, good research skills, speaking skills, and listening skills in and out of the courtroom changed my life forever and I don’t know where I would be without her as my lawyer. I’m so grateful to Diana, I highly recommend her to anyone that is struggling with a nasty divorce case. She genuinely cares about you as a person and fights for you.
I had a very good experience working with Ms. Zitser, she was very caring and full of innovative ideas and solutions. She was very patient and had a genuine attitude to resolve issues to the best of her client. I am very happy with her.
After 19 years of marriage, divorce came unexpected, to say the least. It was the most traumatic experience for me (as I am sure for most), and I felt completely overwhelmed. Diana Zitser came highly recommended from a friend. Diana was described as an excellent family law attorney who really cares about her clients' interests, extremely knowledgeable and competent. When we met, she explained to me the candid reality of my situation with professionalism that is so hard to find these days. We worked together under difficult circumstances (I know I tried Diana's patience more than once) and we were always on the same page. Today, after working with Diana and her staff for several months, I stand by this recommendation. She is an outstanding attorney, and a great litigator. My ex, by the way, had a team of attorneys representing her, and whenever we were in court, Diana was well prepared, very skillful, and always at her best. This kind of representation comes from many years of experience, and at the end this is what we all want; a competent attorney to protect our rights. In summary, this case started with my ex wanting thousands of dollars in support, and I would only get the kids 20% of the time. At the end, I got 50% custody of the kids and thousands of dollars in spousal support from my ex. Several years later, I am still grateful to great work and dedication to my case by Diana P. Zitser.
Diana is strong, kind, personable, patient and always there when I needed her, all which are very important to me. Diana helped me with my case explaining patiently till I fully understood down to the details and when the time came she stayed strong and does not back away when things got tuff. I wasn’t just a client she really cares, I felt like she treated me as if I was a family member. I fell so lucky I found Diana, I highly recommend her!
I highly recommend Diana Zitser for any family law matters. She is very thorough, knowledgable and experienced. She always kept me informed of the stage of the process and offered possible options. She did what one expects a good lawyer to do; she fought for my best interests. She achieved a much better outcome than I had expected. All through the process, she was compassionate and understanding. I trust her and her firm.
Diana Zitser is a very knowledgeable, experienced lawyer who was able to help me understand the complexities of the legal situation I faced while also being compassionate. She managed two tricky family law situations for me and achieved better results than I hoped could be done. She was completely honest with me all the way through the process. I highly recommend this firm.
Divorce is never a pleasant thing. It conjures unbalanced emotions, anger, tears and uncertainty. In these moments we look for professional help and experienced, wise hands to help us. Ms. Zitser and her company are certainly that. I was taken through each stage logically, advised smartly and felt that if needed, her team could go 'dark side' for me. I would recommend the firm to anyone entering this in their life currently.
There are few things as stressful in life as a divorce. Diana was amazing. She listened. She cared. I later found out how important personality is when hiring an attorney. If the judge dislikes your attorney, watch out. Diana is very knowledgeable and highly respected. Plus, she seems to know everyone at the courthouse. She is also extremely honest and fair. There were numerous times when she would direct me on how to save costs. My wife's attorney, who had a much lower hourly rate, ended up costing more than double, because of billable hours. Don't just look at hourly rate. Diana is extremely smart and gets things done in half the time. Highly recommend her.
A recommendation came from a friend who used the Law Offices of Diana Zitser for his divorce. I have used Diana's services twice: first time, for my divorce; second, to help me with a prenuptial agreement. My first meeting with Diana gave me an impression that she was very nice and pleasant, but very knowledgeable and strong at the same time. I was not mistaken in my first impression because she handled both cases very efficiently. Even though at time Diana and I disagreed on taking aggressive positions regarding certain issues, I came to realize that she was right in every point she had made, had a clear strategy in mind, and backed it up with very valid arguments. I knew I was in good hands. Because I followed her advice, the outcomes were great. She saved me time, helped me avoid extra emotional stress, and achieved good and fair results. I would highly recommend Diana for any assignment related to family law.
If one can be said to remember one's divorce with any fondness, then my saying it can certainly be accredited to Ms. Zitser. Her professionalism certainly brought a sense of calm and assurance to what had been, up to then, a rocky time for me. I was at every juncture confident in Diana's ability to bring sage advice to the table and to proceed efficiently through the process to bring closure and peace. Her resolve and support were firm and supportive of my interests. I can recommend her office with the highest confidence.
Ms. Zitser represented me in my divorce proceedings which were contentious and drawn out. She was the ultimate professional. Throughout the course of the proceedings, she remained level headed and composed. She acted with integrity and honesty. She worked well under pressure and tight deadlines. Throughout the course of the proceedings, she kept me fully informed and was always available to respond to my questions and provide direction to protect my interests. Ms. Zitser's skills in mediation, as well as before the Judge in Court, were extremely impressive. She was always well-prepared and well-versed in my case. She presented my position and supporting facts clearly and effectively, resulting in a fair resolution to my divorce. I highly recommend Ms. Zitser.
Divorce is never an easy process. Especially if children are involved, with each side trying to prove their side. Many times, court is inevitable. Diana and her staff truly make you feel as though they are walking along the same path with you! I would recommend her to anyone! She has been my angel!
I couldn't have been happier with the Zitser Family Law Group. They walked me through every step of the way on my case and were fair and frugal with their billing.
Throughout the process, Ms. Zitser and her staff demonstrated courteous and professional attitude and were very helpful in addressing all intricacies of such a delicate affair. I would highly recommend them to other clients seeking high quality professional legal services.
In June of 2014, I contacted Diana Zitser to help me prepare for my divorce. My husband and I had been separated for a number of years and had gone through an informal process that left many legal questions unanswered. I was hesitant to involve a lawyer in what I felt could be a reasonable negotiation between my husband and me. However, things quickly became complicated and contentious, so I needed someone who was sensitive, professional, and thorough. A friend recommended Diana to me and after our first consultation; I knew I had found the right lawyer to help me navigate my divorce. At each stage of the process, she provided me with just the right amount of information, so that I didn’t feel overwhelmed. With her guidance, I have been able complete all necessary paperwork and recreate the history I needed to bring my case to court. I could not have managed this stressful process without her office’s assistance.
Diana Zitser was my counsel in a prenup agreement case and I couldn't have had better representation. She knows the law, strategy, and kept me well informed throughout the prenup process. I highly recommend Diana and her firm.
Ms. Zitser helped me achieve excellent results during an emotionally and financially difficult period in my life. I highly recommend Ms. Zitser as an advocate.
I used Diana over 4 years ago. Kept me informed on all aspects of my matter. Very knowledgeable. I am very happy with the outcome!
Diana exemplifies a person with great intellect and integrity who chose to be an advocate. Diana ranks far above typical lawyers. She represents the highest standards of what it means to legally protect and guide her clients through the maze of the legal process. Diana advised me about optimal legal strategies to achieve fast results at a reasonable cost. I have retained her for my personal family law and divorce case and would do it again. Few if any attorneys can offer more. Diana gets my highest recommendation in every category as an experienced brilliant, and effective advocate always looking out for her client, with genuine compassion.
Amazing attorney. Got things done quickly and extremely professional. I would highly recommend using this firm they are are honest, companionate and understanding when dealing with sensitive matters.
Thank you for all your hard work. It was said to me by a few attorneys that there is no way what I wanted to be done couldn't be done. My own lawyer refused to even consider it. I love to turn no's into yeses and Zitser Family Law team did it!
I was blessed to have Diana as my divorce attorney; she made this difficult process much easier for me. She and her staff were great communicators and helped me get through the decision process. Diana is fair and very practical, she treated me with care, respect and kept me focused on what was best for me so that I would not lose focus or waste time on the small things. She is an amazing attorney and wonderful person. I highly recommend her to anyone who is in need of the best attorney in town. Thank you Diana for being so AMAZING!”
Diana was clear, strategic and mindful at every turn of the process. She was a great communicator and always ensured I understood the impact of each critical decision made. She made my priorities her own and it was easy to entrust them to her and her office. The process is not easy, but with her guidance I felt I had an advocate and never questioned the intent of her advice. She is trustworthy and I am lucky to have come across her office during such an extremely difficult time in my life. Not sure how I could have done it without her and her team.
Diana was straightforward and clear about my case. When I had some difficult issues Diana found innovative 'work arounds' to handle it. She may come off as a bit brusque but I loved it -- she got to the point fast and that meant I was saving on the hourly bill! I was very happy with the end results.
I can't say enough great things about Diana. From the first time I went in to meet with her, she made me feel secure knowing that even in the difficult times to come going through a divorce, she would steer me the right direction. I think the best thing about working with her though was her ability to help me take the emotion out of my decisions, and do the logical thing instead. I have no doubt on my own accord I would have wasted thousands of dollars in legal fees over trivial issues, and she kept me focused on what was best for me and my kids, and made a really painful time in my life, a lot less stressful.
