Diana Adams Biography

Diana Adams (they/them) is dedicated to the support of all families so that they can thrive, with the security of the legal protections they deserve.

Adams is the founder of a boutique LGBTQ family law and mediation firm based in New York City serving primarily same-sex couples and non-nuclear families. Adams is passionately dedicated to helping form healthy, stable families, whether between same-sex couples, platonic co-parents, polyamorous families, or different-sex couples, by facilitating conversations that support the creation of clear personal agreements, as well as solid legal agreements to protect their families. Adams is proud to be one of the New York State representatives for the selective national organization of leaders on LGBTQ family law, the LBGT Family Law Institute of The National LGBT Bar Association.

Adams speaks internationally about LGBTQI parenting, marriage alternatives, and the evolving structure of the family. They're frequently interviewed as an expert on LGBTQ and nontraditional family structures, with interviews in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Atlantic, Huffington Post, New York Magazine and many more, and on TV’s The View and MTV, among others. This coverage is due in part to Adams's outspokenness about their own nontraditional family. Their ability to speak boldly about their own life and about proposals for legal reform reflect an unflinching perseverance which they bring to advocacy on behalf of their clients.

Adams has been a social justice activist on feminist, LGBTQ, environmental, and anti-poverty issues for decades. After law school, they did welfare policy reform work for the New York City Human Resources Administration. Later, they were the Staff Attorney and Pro Bono Coordinator for the Brooklyn Bar Association Volunteer Lawyers Project, where they led this legal services office in representation of indigent Brooklyn residents in child custody, child support, divorce, domestic violence and Civil Court debt collection cases, supervised hundreds of other attorneys' cases, and trained other attorneys.
