About Lea C. Diaz
(also known as Lea Caroline Diaz, Lea Diaz)
Lea Diaz knew at 10 years old that she wanted to be a lawyer. She loved to argue with people, so her mom always told her to put that energy to good use and become a lawyer. That idea really stuck with her. Lea was always passionate in her arguments, but she was most driven when someone had been wronged. This passion for helping people fight for themselves eventually led Lea to pursue family law.
One of Lea’s greatest accomplishments is being the first person in her family to earn a graduate degree. In her success, Lea credits her mother because she taught Lea the importance of independence, education, and dedication. It took her mother 10 years to complete her bachelor’s degree, and that’s part of what makes her Lea’s hero. Her mother knew that education can create a lasting impact on someone’s life. Whenever Lea was exhausted from her schooling, she thought of her mother and that kept her going.
Lea Diaz values working directly with clients. While in law school at DePaul University, she volunteered with the Chicago Domestic Violence Legal Clinic and interned with the Public Defender’s Office. These organizations worked with people who would otherwise not have had legal representation during a hard time in their life. In these experiences, Lea came to better understand her purpose as an attorney. Her job is to first help people through their legal cases but also to help them find lasting solutions that create stability in their future.
Outside of work, Lea loves being in the Chicago area. She used to live in the city but now lives just outside the city, so she gets the best of both worlds. She can go to Chicago for all its sights, culture, and people, or she can go to the surrounding area to experience the outdoors. One of her favorite places to go is Starved Rock State Park. She loves to go camping and hiking with her family and friends. And her dogs love it even more than she does.
