"We begin preparing for possible trial or arbitration from day one. Our injury valuation experience makes for maximum financial recovery, but we also make extraordinary efforts to ensure solutions aren't solely monetary. I also strive for settlement agreements to include staff education and policy or procedure changes. The first thing most clients say is 'it's not about the money, I just don't want anyone else to ever go through what we did.'"
- Diane M. Matthews, Medical Malpractice Attorney and Registered Nurse

As an active member of the American Association for Justice and a sustaining member of the Consumer Attorneys of California, Ms. Matthews works toward changing the inadequate medical malpractice laws in California to protect patients from harm. This includes support for the Troy and Alana Pack Patient Safety Act of 2014.

Ms. Matthews has a long history of advocating for patients through her professional work as a nurse and lawyer and public advocacy such as legislative reforms to California's broken and outdated medical malpractice laws.
