When winning is the only option

Diane Sodano, Associate

Diane Sodano has successfully represented clients in a wide range of personal injury cases involving vehicle accidents, dog bites, slip and fall incidents, and much more.

Diane is driven by her philosophy that personal injury law is truly personal; no injury or accident impacts two people the same way, so each case is deeply personal to the victim and should be treated in a highly personal manner by his or her attorney.

In addition to her nearly 15 years of experience in the personal injury field, Diane spent more than a decade working in the insurance industry. Her combined knowledge from these fields provides a unique perspective when representing her clients. Dianne understands the mathematical, profit-oriented approach insurance companies take regarding injury claims, and she works tirelessly to change this paradigm and personalize each client’s claim to ensure they receive the compensation they deserve.

Positively Impacting Clients’ Lives

Diane takes pride in every one of her cases, and she is particularly proud of the many cases where her persistence led to results her clients would have otherwise not been able to obtain.

For example, in one notable case, a 16-year-old boy was riding a bike when a car struck and killed him in front of his home. The police did not adequately investigate the accident or question the driver, and although the family retained outside counsel, the insurance company denied coverage by arguing the teen was wearing headphones. The father of the teen then asked Diane to further investigate the situation. Dianne subpoenaed for cell phone records, which allowed her to uncover new details about the accident. Her research found that the driver had been lost in the neighborhood and had made numerous calls in rapid succession before striking and killing the teen. As a result, Diane recovered all the available and substantial insurance proceeds from multiple insurance companies. As a result of Diane’s legal work, the family of the teen was able to get the answers and justice they wanted.

 

Education & Professional Experience

Diane earned her Bachelor of Arts degree, magna cum laude, from Temple University, and she received her law degree from Temple’s School of Law while working full time for Cigna Group Insurance. Prior to joining Ostroff Injury Law, she was an attorney in the Litigation Department of Grim, Biehn & Thatcher PC. and served as the firm’s executive director of the firm from August 2014 to November 2016.

Diane is admitted to practice law in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. She is a member of the Bucks County Bar Association.

As an active member of her community, Diane is active in the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) at her sons’ school, and her church’s youth ministry programs.

  • “I left another lawyer in Pittsburgh because he said he could not help me, because I had limited tort insurance. I found Mr. Ostroff on line. He called me in 10 minutes, sent a lawyer to my home in two days and settled my case for $200,000 in less than one year.”
