Bio

Diane Finston hails from McKeesport/Pittsburgh, Pennsylvaniahome of the Steelers and the Piratesand is an avid fan of her hometown sports teams. Although a lover of winter, nevertheless she moved west to California, settling first in Berkeley and then relocating to Los Angeles. Diane graduated with her Bachelor of Arts degree from University of California, Berkeley and then received her Juris Doctor from University of California at Davis.

Her journey toward being a workers’ compensation attorney was not necessarily a direct route. Wanting to either be in politics or a cellist, and prior to attending UC Berkeley, Diane ended up at the University of Chicago Hospital as radiologist in the oral surgery trauma unit and was the first Director of the Berkeley Free Clinic Dental Clinic Program. Diane applied to the University of California, ostensibly to become a dentist, but ended up with a degree in Anthropology.

After graduating law school, she became a family lawyer with an 18-year association with Steven Adams of the California Law Reports Organization. Going into her ninth year, Diane is blessed to now be a member of the Hinden & Breslavsky team, empowering injured workers to receive their legal and medical rights as a RIGHT, not a PRIVILEGE.
