BIOGRAPHY: Diana L. Martinez is a Family Lawyer practicing in the counties of San Bernardino, Orange, Los Angeles, and Riverside, working with both English and Spanish speaking participants. Since 2007, her practice has been devoted 100% to out-of-court dispute resolution through consulting, collaborative, and mediation processes.

Beyond her private practice, Ms. Martinez is also a trainer and educator for legal, financial, and mental health professionals, locally and nationwide, on the topics of family law mediation, collaborative law, confidentiality, cultural competency, and ethics and best practices.  She has presented for the California State Bar, Continuing Education of the Bar, Association of Family and Conciliation Courts, Collaborative Practice California, Southern California Mediation Association, University of Southern California Gould School of Law, Western State Law School, and various local bar associations and practice groups. She is also a frequent guest lecturer for community Divorce Options and Divorce Recovery programs.

As a past president and current board member of Collaborative Divorce Solutions of Orange County, and former board member and newsletter editor for the Los Angeles Collaborative Family Law Association, Ms. Martinez has facilitated education and enhancement of best practices in professional communities with markedly different demographics and practice philosophies.

Ms. Martinez is a co-founder of CultureCounts.net, a program dedicated to bringing awareness of cultural complexities and competency in family law matters. She also volunteers as a California State Bar and San Bernardino County Bar Association Mandatory Fee Arbitrator, and as a mediator for Riverside, San Bernardino, Los Angeles, and Inyo/Mono County Superior Courts.

PRACTICE FOCUS: As a mother, Ms. Martinez places a premium on family. This is the driving force behind her professional services: to maintain and promote the welfare of the family through difficult changes. Divorce may be inevitable. How you handle it is not. The question is “What do you want for your family?”
