PDF Bio email

At the start of her legal career, Diana worked as a public defender for the largest public defense firm in King County. After a move from criminal law to involvement with the Washington State Developmental Disabilities Council (WSDDC), Diana joined Curran Law Firm in 2003 to focus on estate planning and probate. In 2008, she moved to the downtown Seattle firm Keller Rohrback LLP, where she continued honing her practice in estate planning.

While helping families through probate, she noticed that many estate plans fail to address the unique elements of the decedent’s life. In fact, most plans seem to address only a portion of the estate, which often leads to unnecessary complications and expense. As a result, part of Diana’s philosophy involves crafting an effective estate plan that brings together all the elements of the client’s life. In 2016, Diana launched Laurel Law, drawing upon her skills as an experienced attorney, board chair, policy analyst, and devoted family member.

At Three60 Law Group, Diana continues to provide her clients with a person-centered style of planning, but with the added benefit of a team approach that is the cornerstone of Three60’s philosophy.
