N. Diane Holmes, P.A. | Family Law Group

N. Diane Holmes is board certified in marital and family law and one of the most respected attorneys in the state of Florida. Consistently ranked as a Florida “Super Lawyer” most recently by the Wall Street Journal, she is held in high regard by her peers with the coveted 5.0 Martindale-Hubbell peer rating for “high ethical standards and professional ability”. This is the highest peer ranking possible. She also holds the impressive distinction as the first woman lawyer in Central Florida to earn the designation as a Fellow of the Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.

Diane was the recipient of The Central Florida Summit Award. An honor only bestowed on a handful of women pioneers each year, recognizing outstanding community, prestigious service and leadership.

She began as a staff attorney at the Legal Aid Society of the Orange County Bar Association. Her primary responsibility was to expand and implement the Guardian Ad Litem program ensuring that thousands of abused and neglected children could rely on trained, compassionate lawyers and volunteers to guide them through the sometimes scary and unfamiliar judicial process.

While working at the Legal Aid Society of the Orange County Bar Association Diane became interested in marital and family law and eventually opened her own law practice.

She has built her family law practice based on her firm belief in fairness, creative strategies, and results. She represents clients with the experience and tenacity that has earned her a solid reputation in the legal community.

A pioneer in collaborative divorce, Diane is known for developing unique and creative solutions for the benefit of her clients. She has earned great admiration and respect from the bench, her clients, and opposing counsel for the caliber of representation and experience she brings to the table.

Her professionalism, commitment, and love for helping others is probably best demonstrated by her boundless energy and her availability to any and all who may call upon her wisdom or advice on personal or professional matters.

The cause most personal to her is the fight to find a cure for breast cancer. A two-time breast cancer survivor, she serves as a positive example to others. In recognition of her tireless efforts, she was selected as the 2011 Honorary Breast Cancer Survivor for the “Central Florida Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” walk in Downtown Orlando, personally raising more than $10,000 for the cause. This past year she raised the most money for an individual. For more than two decades, Diane has supported the American Cancer Society as a Reach to Recovery volunteer and is featured in an American Cancer Society video, “Conqueror of Cancer: Surfing Diane.” Diane is a celebrated leader in our community, guiding efforts to protect children, raising money to fund breast cancer research and supporting the arts in Central Florida.
