• Overview


Diana’s legal career began in corporate litigation, where she litigated complex business matters, such as anti-trust violation and unfair business practice matters, partnership dissolution actions and commercial disputes before the State and Federal courts. She then changed course and has been practicing workers compensation law for over ten years ago; first at Kegel Tobin & Truce as an associate and subsequently at Gilson Daub LLP as a partner.

She defends employers large and small, as well as municipalities, uninsured employers, and third party administrators across sectors like technology, logistics, consumer products, and manufacturing. Her expertise includes complex matters, as well as covid claims, gig economy employment issues and many others.

Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her family, reading, cooking, drawing and travel.
