Attorney Profile

Sharon T. Diamant is the co-founder of Diamant Gerstein, LLC, located in Rockville, Maryland. Providing representation to clients throughout the area, she divides her practice between criminal defense matters and family law. Having spent 10 years as a prosecutor with the Montgomery County State's Attorney's Office before entering private practice, Sharon is able to anticipate the ways that prosecutors handle criminal cases. The types of state criminal charges that she now handles include: driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, drug possession and distribution, theft, white collar crimes, juvenile offenses, assault and trespass and peace/protective orders.

In her family law practice, Sharon assists clients who are going through a divorce and who are dealing with issues such as: separation, pre and post-nuptial agremeents, child and spousal support, child custody and visitation, and property division. A fierce advocate in the courtroom, she also has mediation experience and often encourages alternative dispute resolution methods in lieu of protracted litigation.

Sharon attended Franklin & Marshall College as an undergraduate and obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Music and Political Science in 1996. She then pursued her legal education at the University of Dayton School of Law and received her Juris Doctor in 1999. Admitted to practice in Maryland and Florida, Ms. Diamant is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland and the Supreme Court of the United States.

An active participant in several professional organizations, Sharon is a member of the Bar Association of Montgomery County, the Collaborative Divorce Association, Inc., and the National College for DUI Defense, Inc. She routinely represents victims of domestic violence through Montgomery County's Family Justice Center and prides herself on being available to her clients anytime they need her.  She personally answers every phone call at the Firm and offers payment plans, as necessary.  Sharon is currently on the Judicial Nominating Commission for Montgomery County, and she is active in Maryland's Pro Bono Project.  She has received a 10.0 "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo as well as 5-star reviews from current and former clients.
