Diaz Law Firm (DLF) exists to provide legal services by way of in-depth analysis and consultations, passionate advocacy, and representation in the areas of family law, immigration, and litigation defense, especially to those who are traditionally treated as outsiders in the legal process. Our very purpose is to bring our clients peace and a better life by protecting their interests in and outside of the court system.
DLF prides itself on being ethical, transparent, and client-centered. We not only know the law but understand the humanity and social policies behind the law’s purpose. Our office’s core is centered on compassion and anchored in clarity.
We heal and rebuild our clients’ lives by solving their legal problems together, piece by piece, issue by issue, with grace, poise, and greater purpose. We admit, and you should know, that we lead from the heart, and guide our clients to not waste money, time, or energy by creating more hurt, extending a fight, or seeking vengeance just to appease a bitter, broken heart. Instead, we focus our clients on moving on and addressing the most important part – the future – rather than getting stuck in the past. We guide our clients to figuring out what is truly most important, what are the issues, what is the fight really about, and how can we best reach a resolution, closure, and peace.
While we battle across the table with opposing counsel, or before the judge in court, we never lose sight of our humanity and responsibility to our highest selves, our children, and our communities.
As tempting as it might be to hit “below the belt,” to cut corners, or breach ethical boundaries, we remind ourselves that we fight for the sake of those watching us closely – our little babies, our children, our young ones – to see what the adults will do next now that they are facing difficult times in their lives.
The Noble Legal Profession
California has a population of over 39.5 million people, not counting those Californians living in the shadows due to their immigration status. But, there are only 190,000 licensed attorneys on active status. Finding an experienced, qualified attorney who will also be a good fit can be a daunting task. Finding out what are the office’s professional standards, philosophy and core values will help to see if that office is right for you.
DLF believes that lawyering is a noble profession and as such acts to continuously and consistently bring more dignity to the profession one case at a time. As officers of the Court, our attorneys aim to bring clarity and organization to each court case we handle. As zealous advocates for our clients, DLF prioritizes communication, hard work, and respect for each client so that they always know their options, risks, and plans of action. DLF clients are prepared and knowledgeable because DLF takes the time to know their case, issues, all parties involved, and adversaries to the point that clients and DLF can seamlessly work together to bring their cases to a resolution.
Philosophy & Core Values
As a law office, we have found that we are able to work best with clients who agree with our philosophy and core values.
Diaz Law Firm believes in human compassion; that peace is not a guarantee but something that must be carefully curated; that respect must be complete if it is to mean anything; and that communication, though at times hard, must be open and true. With these beliefs, Diaz Law Firm aims to be the go-to source for trusted legal representation.
At our core, we believe in:
All people deserve to be recognized and treated as equals. Achieving equality and fairness requires we see eye-to-eye fully, completely, and honestly.
Partnership with Justice
Our attorneys are officers of the court, and as such, are co-stewards and partners in the pursuit of justice. Lawyering is a noble profession that has the power to transform society and move it toward true equality, peace, and harmony.
We fight to create peace, not to keep score or tally vengeance. Peace, to be functional, must exist in our hearts, our pocketbooks, our homes, and our communities. We seek to create, nurture, and protect peace.
For relationships to progress and rise to their highest potential, we must look in the mirror and see ourselves as we are, and bravely face the areas that need changing. Improving our client service, our office systems, and our law practice requires we engage in this self-criticism and listen to critiques.
