Dianne received her nurses training at the Mack School of Nursing. She attended Brock University for her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and her Masters of Education. Experience in a wide variety of clinical and nursing settings gives Dianne a rich knowledge base that allows her an understanding of the severity of the injuries that our clients face.

Her role as the Executive Director of the Brain Injury Association of Niagara for six years gives her the advocacy skills that are required as a Medical Consultant to Gluckstein Lawyers. The additional services that Dianne provides to the clients of Gluckstein Lawyers are unique to this firm. Beyond the legal expertise in our office, Dianne offers medical insight that assists the lawyers to understand the degree of disability and impairment.
