Diamond & Diamond, PA
Richard S. Diamond, Esq.
Specialty: Family Law
Richard S. Diamond is certified as a divorce and family law trial lawyer by the NJ Supreme Court, an accredited family law mediator and graduate of the National Family Law Trial Advocacy Institute. He’s been practicing family law exclusively for more than three decades, while partner Lynn Gianforte has been practicing family law exclusively for the past 19 years.
The firm specializes in family law and divorce litigation, mediation and arbitration services, and regularly appears before the family part judges in Bergen, Essex, Middlesex, Morris, Passaic, Somerset and Union Counties.
Diamond is proud of the firm’s work ethic and attention to clients’ needs, and the fact that the firm is respected by judges and peers. “Our best source of referral for our practice has always been our clients,” he says.
The decision to litigate, mediate or arbitrate depends on the issues presented, and having lawyers experienced in handling each type of proceeding is critical to a successful outcome.
Diamond believes that too many lawyers focus on getting a retainer in the consultation instead of determining whether the firm is the right fit for the client’s needs.
“One size doesn’t fit all when it comes to divorce, child custody and support matters—finding the right lawyer is critically important, starting with the consultation process,” he says.
