Law Elder Law is very proud to announce that our very own Diana Law has just become the youngest member of the Leading Lawyers Network here in Illinois! The Leading Lawyers Network is a prestigious group to be a part of because the only way to become a member is to be nominated by your peers. Even once you are nominated you aren’t actually accepted until you have been reviewed by a number of your peers.
“Leading Lawyers Network surveys lawyers, asking them which of their peers, indeed their competitors, they would recommend to a family member or friend if they could not take a case within their area of law or geographic region.” (from the Leading Lawyers Website)
In fact, the Leading Lawyers Network takes only 5% or less of all the attorneys in Illinois. We are proud to have TWO of our Law Elder Law attorneys be a part of this group, as Diana’s dad Rick Law is also a member of the Leading Lawyers Network.
Of course, it’s no surprise to us that Diana was nominated. In addition to being involved in the Kane County Bar Association and giving her time in many other service organizations, Diana is known for her focused and caring service to her clients.
As for Diana, she’s pleased with the membership in part because she hopes it will be beneficial in dealing with the practical aspects of her job, which is namely ensuring that the elderly of our community receive the advice and protection they need. Many clients come in feeling overwhelmed and scared, not even having known they needed an elder law attorney until the last minute. Diana hopes she will be able to reach more seniors and their families this way.
When asked what Diana likes most about elder law, she answered “I enjoy providing more than just legal services. In fact some days I feel more like a social worker. We get and give lots of hugs! I like that I can develop close relationships with my clients during a crisis time of life; I’m helping them when I know they need it most.”

“Everyone in the office was absolutely wonderful to work with whether on the initial set-up of the trust, adjustment to such following my father’s passing, or processing of his home sale and proceeds.
They genuinely care for your family’s well-being and walk you through each step of the process. They are also exceptionally responsive even when parties involved live in different locations.
This is a definitely a team you can trust and one I highly recommend.”
