"I have been working with Dianna for in excess of ten years while undertaking my function as a Planning Manager at a number of Lower Hunter councils. Dianna has always provided me with prompt, well-informed legal advice and she has been instrumental in council being successful in a number of Land and Environment Court proceedings. Dianna is the consummate professional, while still being personable with a good sense of humour, which makes working with her both highly productive and fun."
