Diane Sternlieb is one tough lady! I have hired her twice now for two custody disputes and yesterday she was able to accomplish more than I even thought possible at this stage. She's a hard working woman and she's been there done that. She has real life experiences that allows her to understand where her clients come from. She will expect you to put in some work to prove yourself and that was completely alright with me. She's a great attorney to have in your corner during some of the most important/scary times of your life. I will definitely be retaining her again for the next stages of my case.
I don’t know where my daughter and I would be had I not hired the Law Office of Diane Sternlieb to represent me in my divorce. My Husband had been my partner and protector for over 16 years, I thought he was the perfect husband. Then, one day I came home from work and he started falsely accusing me of some really bizarre things. Because of his paranoia and delusional thoughts, he destroyed our marriage. He was verbally, emotionally and mentally abusive at that point. This was his third marriage. He tried to bully me into signing his lawyers divorce papers so that he would not have to pay child support. This was my first marriage and I didn’t have a clue what I should do. The lady helping my husband with the divorce said she could not give me any legal advice since she was working for him but there were several lawyers close by that could help me and that I should have my own attorney look over the paperwork if I had questions. That turned out to be the best advice she could have given me. That’s when I found the law office of Diane Sternlieb.
Diane Sternlieb and her assistant Jesse helped me through every step. They explained that child support was not my money or my husband’s money. It was my child’s money that was needed to take care of her and I did not have the right to short change her just because he was trying to say he could not afford to pay. Turns out, he could afford to pay child support for our child.
Diane Sternlieb is a tough lady who will stand up for her clients. She did not allow my ex husband to bully me during our mediation. I am so thankful that she was in my corner during this very difficult time. Thank you so much for all your help.
Diane and her employees do everything they can to help anyone! Our dog was recently stolen and no one in the surrounding areas would take the case. But Diane did! She was always doing everything she could to make sure our dog came home. Our sweet fur baby is home again with us! Thank you!
I am so thankful to have met Diane M. Sternlieb (Dee) and her staff (Jessie and Abby)! They were the most honest, professional, experienced, responsive, and hard-working people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I met with four other lawyers prior to meeting with Dee and all of them told me the odds were against me regarding child custody, child support, equity distribution, etc. As soon as I walked into Dee’s law office, I knew she would be the one to represent me in my divorce case. I told her my story and she was very honest with me upfront. She immediately had a plan in place and took me under her wing like I was family. I completely trusted Dee’s advice throughout the divorce case and provided everything she needed to do her job effectively. In the court room and in mediation, she did not let me down. I went from being an every other weekend dad, to a father that has 50/50 shared physical and legal custody. She is a strong advocate for fathers who want to be a part of their children’s lives. I would recommend anyone to Dee and her staff when it comes to family law. My children mean the world to me and if it is one thing on this earth that I would fight for, it would be them. I trusted Dee with this challenge in my life and she did everything in her power to make it happen. She will be my family lawyer and friend for life!
Thank's to the Sterlingb law family! I'm so greatful for you guy's for helping me get Sole custody of my two year year old son! I'm a 27 year old African American father and had an awful divorce, Diane and her associate's showed me why their the best group serving Douglas and Carroll county! I got custsody of my two year old son in Douglas county ga where its very ware! She's a pit bull in the courtroom , very affordable ,most of all they genuinely care in your time of need!
I am so thankful for how hard Diane and her staff have been fighting for me through a painful divorce and lengthy TPO proceedings. Diane is a fighter and will protect you as family. Her presence and knowledge in court is unmatched. Thankful a friend recommended her to me. Even the bailiff after the TPO came up to Diane and asked for her card and said if he ever needed a lawyer he wanted to call her because she was so good.
Diane and her staff go the extra mile. She is the bulldog you need in your corner. She knows the laws in and out with her degree as a nurse her compassion for her cliets is unparalleled to any attorney. I was a victim of domestic abuse for years and scared to get a divorce. She was my voice and advocate and fought for everything I deserved. I cannot praise her and her staff enough. If you need a lawyer and team to fight for you, you will find no other that compares to this office.
In February 2014 my EX and I filed for a divorce, He decided he wanted to fight me for full custody so that meant finding lawyers. I started with Daniel M Barns the case went on for over a year he took my money and did absolutely nothing to help me and my case move a long. Then with no warring at all he just dropped my case in march of 2015 because of to much interference from family members as he put it . Quitting was the best thing he did for my case because then I found Diane that was the best thing for my case .. I went in and met with Diane she was really concerned with the amount of time this had been going on with so little that had been done.. She was very straight forward got right to the point and told me exactly what needed to be done in order to win custody of my three kids.. Diane was very caring and understanding she is very trustworthy and very knowledgeable. I was very satisfied with our consultation so I retained her on March 23rd 2015 our court date was already set for June the 8th 2015, she had just six weeks to get my case ready for court and she did just that ... On June 8th we went into court Diane was fully prepared she fought hard and she won my case so now thanks to her I have custody of my children .. I would recommend her if you want a lawyer who is caring and understanding and will work hard to win your case ... Diane is not only a great lawyer she is truly an amazing person as well.. I really enjoyed having her as my lawyer and could not of asked for a better person then her to represent me ...
There are not enough words and kudos for this attorney! I was in a terrible two year divorce from 2006 until 2008. The harassment did not stop at the conclusion of the divorce as my ex-husband made it his mission to start building a frivolous child custody case that also included many items from the divorce where he basically wanted a, “do over.” He filed his case July 1, 2009 and I obtained an attorney. I informed the attorney up front that I could not physically, mentally nor financially afford another 2 year court battle. (Being that I have a fairly good understanding of the law and process, I prepare a lot of the work myself and it is very organized.) However, as of September, 2011 the case was still not settled and the attorney had not even filed my answer to his motion. I was given Dee’s contact information, told she is feisty and takes nothing from male attorneys that think they are going to intimidate her. I retained Dee on September 15, 2011. She was furious at how things had progressed. She immediately filed a motion to dismiss and brief in support, had the case in court on December 12, 2011 and mopped the floor!!! This was a difficult case because my ex is extremely difficult and unreasonable to deal with. Dee had no problem picking up a case that was a mess a quickly turning it around. She has continued to stay in contact and recently represented me on contempt issues from the December 12, 2011 case. My ex is currently incarcerated as a result of the latest case. I always recommend Dee to anyone needing legal counsel. She will treat you fair and fight hard to win your case.
Realizing you need an attorney makes for a scary time; all you hear about is how dishonest and “crooked” so many are. I had the unfortunate displeasure of having dealt with one of these type attorneys before being directed to Diane Sternlieb. Diane was a Godsend! Upon your initial conversation with her staff you will see and feel the difference…they care, they take time and listen...each and every time you call from that point on they listen and care and work to take care of you. Upon your initial consultation with Diane you KNOW you are in the right hands. Diane listens, empathizes, sympathizes, lets you know what can and WILL be done and then gets to work doing just that! You will not find an attorney who takes your case more to heart and makes it more personal than Diane. Diane digs deep into the actual facts of the case, tells you the truth about what will happen and what she can do and then gets it done. If Diane or her staff states something to you, you can take it as fact and comfort in the knowledge that it is not just lip-service. Diane will truly fight for you and will get the results she told you she would. There are still good attorneys out there and we are fortunate to have this GREAT one! Thank You Diane and Jessie!
I was very happy with Diane and all of her office staff they did a wonderful and very professional job. I would definitely recommend her for any of your attorney needs. They were very caring and thorough. I am so satisfied with everything they did. I would definitely use them again. Thank you so much for EVERYTHING you all did.
Diane is an awesome and caring attorney. She recently served as the GAL for our grandchildren in an adoption case. Her medical background helped all involved to better understand the severity of the situation. She kept the interest of the children her main focus with all involved. She is great in the court room. Thanks Diane.
Diane is the bomb! You won't see her shine until she gets in the courtroom, then watch out! An exceptional attorney that will give you 110%. Her staff is very professional and keeps you informed on what's going on with the case. You can't go wrong with this firm.
Diane Sternlieb is an awesome attorney and a wonderful human being. Diane was able to accomplish something I thought to be impossible. She was able to help me get full custody of my children. Working with her was a great experience. Both her and her staff were very friendly and any phone call I made or e-mail I sent were returned very promptly. She treats your case as if she were personally involved but at the same time she is very forthcoming and honest as how to handle a situation. She does not tell you what you want to hear, she tells you what you need to hear, which was one of the things that appealed most to me. I have recommended Diane to several of my friends that have needed an attorney and I highly recommend her to anyone that needs an attorney. If the need ever arises that I need an attorney again I will definitely use her.
My current husband and I hired Diane a few years ago when we were tired of being pushed around by my daughter's father. Diane was very thorough, and made me feel like I was in control of the situation. She helped us to resolve the situation and implement a custody agreement WE decided upon. It truly could have been a nightmare, but Diane made it so fast and easy. We didn't have to step foot in a courtroom! I have and will always recommend her to anyone needing a powerful attorney to get the job done!
I have known Diane for almost a year. I am the wife of one of her clients. My husband and I have dealt with the legal field for a few years and had our fair share of attorneys. Last summer we sat down with our last attorney getting some recommendations on who to go to next. After writing down a list of names- the attorney he kept referring back to as the 'bulldog' was none other than Diane sternlieb. Our choice didn't stop there, we did tons of research, asked around (to people also known for needing attorneys) and several others spoke very highly of Diane. So we decided to go with someone local, called her office to set up a consultation, and came in for her first available. Right off the bat, I was blown away with how her assistants handled us. I didn't feel like I 'inconvenienced' them, which other attorneys and their assistants have made me feel. We came in, retained her on the spot, and immediately knew she was not only a blessing but going to be very special in our life. Over the course of his case, I've gotten to know Diane more, and realized she is as honest as I could ever imagine. She takes our case (as I assume she does EVERY other case) very personal. Anytime something new happens, I can almost guarantee that not only my husband will get an email, but I do as well. She has done more for us in less time than the other attorneys did total. I have no clue what I would do (or better yet, my husband) if we didn't have her. She has a heart of gold! I would recommend her to anyone. Would? I do! She truly does stick to her motto- 'caring like you're family'. And that goes a long way in the legal world, because an attorney that cares a lot is so hard to find. Not for me. I can't express enough how wonderful Diane is. If anyone needs an attorney- there is still good in some people. Diane is part of the 'some'. Take a chance, do a consult with her, you'll know immediately that I gave you an honest caring genuine attorney for a referral! After all- she is the BEST! :)
I was actually with another attorney and very unhappy. I actually first saw Diane in court against my old attorney and saw how hard she fought and how much she truly cared about her client. It was at that point that I decided to leave my corrupt attorney and sign with Diane. From the start Diane has been a guiding hand and strong support. She listened to my case and immediately took me under her wing. I knew my case wasn't an easy custody battle and honestly didn't know what the outcome was but Diane never doubted. She stood firm and in the end won my case and saved my family. She has been an absolute blessing to me and I would never use another lawyer. EVER! In a world where there are so many people out there just to make a quick buck she is a shining light in the darkness. I HIGHLY recommend her!
Diane Sternlieb is the best attorney out here by far! I found myself divorced and the mother of four. As if this wasn't hard enough we began to have custody issues. I was still paying for an overpriced divorce attorney at this time. I began the tedious process of consulting attorney's for the impending case. I was stressed and already in debt when I had the great fortune of meeting Diane. She has been my absolute rock throughout this ordeal! Diane is hardworking, brutally honest and determined. Diane worked with me every step of the way. Between Diane and her assistant Jessie, I was always informed, and supported. I cannot stress enough how agonizingly stressful this time in my life was. Not once did Diane not reply to an email or call. Even with what has to be a crazy work load.
Competency was above and beyond. All paperwork was filed, deadlines met. I didn't have to worry about anything. I also can't stress enough how compassionate yet professional she was throughout this trying ordeal. Even when I had to move THREE HOURS AWAY! Diane was always so calm in the face of my anxiety that I remeber wondering if she would be agressive enough in court. An absolute POWER HOUSE! She knows Law. The end result, I was awarded custody and my family can heal. I will forever be greatful for Diane and her team!!!! If you are in need of an attorney because you are going through the worse time in your life I Highly, highly recommend her.
I strongly recommend Mrs. Sternlieb. She helped me tremendously recently with a custody battle and she is my hero. We were up against a monster and she has forever blessed me and my son. She will definitely prepare you for the worst case scenario so that way you aren't shocked but she works miracles and makes things happen. She is very firm and has much heart behind what she does for her job and her clients. This little lady will fight for what she knows is best in her clients interest. If I ever need anything she will be the first person I go to. She is GREAT!
