On today’s Hustle & Flow podcast episode, Diana shares what joy in the law means to her. We also talk about changing career paths (more than once), her own path to finding joy, building an innovative law firm with intention, and jumping in head first to fill a void in her legal community.

Diana has such a big heart and I can’t wait for you to get to know her better.

Listen to the podcast episode now.
