Fighting For Your Rights

We are trial lawyers who master the facts and know the law. As our track record indicates, we know how to persuasively – and effectively – tell each client’s story to obtain the best possible result based on the facts and circumstances of their individual case.

Diane Menashe,  Partner

Diane Menashe is a trial lawyer who has tried more than 150 criminal and civil cases to jury verdict. Her vast success in the courtroom is attributed to her mastery of the facts and the law and her unique ability to understand how to use every phase of the trial, to further her client’s story and to ultimately gain favorable verdicts.

Her work includes high-level criminal defense in state and federal courts, complex civil litigation, internal investigations, parole hearings, judicial release motions and juvenile criminal defense.

Annually, Diane is a faculty member of Harvard Law School’s Trial Advocacy Workshop where she teaches alongside of some of the best trial lawyers and judges in the country.

In recognition of her experience as a trial lawyer, Diane is a fellow in both the American College of Trial Lawyers (ACTL) and the International Academy of Trial Lawyers (IATL).

Diane, a four-year collegiate rower, coached the Tulane Law School varsity women’s rowing team while attending law school at the university. She brings the collaborative approach to her work, especially in the courtroom where she understands the value of putting together a diverse, experienced team.
