Denies the due process that is the birthright of every citizen. Then takes free reign to commit blackmail, using children as her bargaining chips. Most disturbing guardian ad litem. Not recommended.

Following is my review of my experience with Katalin Eckstein and Diane Van Ness. I brought my very ill child in good faith to these two for help. He had an early onset of hallucinations, paranoia, and a severe thought disorder that resulted in unfortunately incontrollable behaviors and bizarre stories even about all the innocent people in his life. This inexperienced duo believed everything he was saying and filed false child abuse charges with detrimental familial results. Since that time, his father, paternal grandparents, principals, counselors, pediatricians, police, doctors, teachers, sheriffs, hospitals, and multitudes of others OVER A DECADE, virtually EVERYONE WHO KNEW HIM, has Baker-acted him or had him Baker-acted, arrested and/or hospitalized him. ARE THEY ALL MENTALLY ILL CHILD ABUSERS, TOO, DIANE AND KATALIN? No, Diane and Katalin, we have ALL had only one thing in mind... how to help and keep safe my beautiful son, and keep others safe from him, and him from himself. He deserved treatment! Not enabling of his illness and bizarre stories, or unethical punishment of his family over stories that never happened. "Punishment" included his healthy brother and healthy mother being kept apart for four years, while the case never ONCE went before a judge as an evidentiary hearing. Never once. Eventually, Diane Van Ness was thrown off this case for ethical reasons and Katalin Eckstein quit the case with one day's notice for falsified reasons. All documents are available in a court of law by multiple professionals if needed. And my beautiful son? The boy that WE ALL were only trying to help? Detrimental. This duo will never know the agony of loving and raising and trying to help a severely mentally ill child. They have never apologized, and still likely are stuck with their initial ignorant conclusions, not based on reality and without any contact with any persons or doctors who truly knew this boy. Not recommended.

I would find Diane Van Ness' current listing in The Miami Herald as one of South Florida's Top-Rated Lawyers to be laughable if it weren't so tragic. First, this is an ad, not editorial. Further, it is written and paid for by Van Ness

This unseemly woman demanded that I pay her just to get off my case. By statute, if both parents and all professionals sign her off case, she must do so. Instead, she refused to do so, until I sent her the demanded check within 3 hours, in the thousands of dollars. This, she did knowing that I was broke. I had to borrow money, in
desperation to be free of her sickness in my opinion and on my attorney's advice... Within three hours and with no resources I had to come up with the money. I have been in debt ever since. Not believable? I have all emails, bank docs, attorneys taking her rageaholic calls. She got paid. Sick.

We are grateful, for lack of a better word, that people are finally reporting this woman. She has left a wake of destruction to families and children and should not be allowed to go near them, in our opinion.
Diane Van Ness did commit extortion against our clients, too. We concur with all of the below reviews and those on Ripoffreport.com.
The classic bully profile, in our psychiatric circles, is obvious. She injects herself into what she claims is a crisis situation (even though in family law it is clear that all divorces appear as crises and need mediation at best), then comes in as the classic "Savior" profile, then extorts money from the "loser." Psychiatrists are fully aware of this bully triangle, presenting in abuse profiles and personality disorders. All the while, she is garnishing attention (attention seeking disorder behaviors) for her "heroics."
This is histrionics at its best. If you dare to confront her with her unethical behaviors, she digs her heals even deeper, and calls the client "paranoid," bending over backwards to find colleagues who will "meet with" the client to duplicate her findings (while refusing to file in court the genuine findings).
Calling the claimant "paranoid," once confronted with her behaviors, is a key feature in this attention-seeking, extortionist disorder.
She will also always be found sitting on a variety of committees and task forces, another key feature of the bully profile. Over 25% of hotline calls for bullying refer to people who work in arenas that help the very people from whom they extort their monies via bullying techniques. Classically, the bully works in the very field in which she bullies. In other words, she sits on committees and even teaches as "professor" in the field in which she abuses her power. Ironically, Daine Van Ness teaches (not a professor) at University of Miami Law School, and sits on a variety of ethics and task force committees, and claims that she "specializes" in the "guardian ad litem field."... straight from the psychiatry textbook.This is the classic bully paradigm. We believe we learned about this bully profile in undergraduate school.
We will present in a court of law with all documents, including bank documents and hand-written demand letters from Diane herself.
Eventually, this woman must be stopped. For now, we are grateful to have a platform in which we can educate unknown consumers so that they can decide for themselves. This is the most important client tool. Know that naivite is your most ineffective tool. Be aware. Be knowledgeable. Make your choice. But make it a knowledgeable one.

We do not recommend Diane Van Ness at all.
Diane triple-charges her guardian ad litem fees amongst the ex-wife, ex-husband, and the attorney. If you dare question her, she begins filing a series of false, incriminatory reports about you.
If you continue to not meet her financial demands, she cuts off all contact between parent and child.
If you alert her as to her ethics, she goes to court (always as non-evidentiary) and under oath files a falsified status report. She allows no witnesses or evidence.
Thus far, Diane has eluded sanctions/disbarrment. She nurtures "friendships" with the judges by donating and fundraising toward their campaigns. This, even though she has no law practice. Thus, she maintains complete control of her above actions. Fortunately, the legal community is beginning to be all too aware of Diane's manipulative lifestyle. We ask that you choose any other professional but Diane.

Diane Van Ness intertwines herself in families' finances: Unethical and illegal behavior for a guardian ad litem. The results have been most egregious for my clients. She is not an objective guardian ad litem. I do not recommend Diane Van Ness.

Diane Van Ness did this to my family, too!

I was not allowed to see my children unless and until I payed her large sums of money in full by the first of each month... Far more than I could afford... in fact, over 100% of my salary.

If I couldn't swing it, she would immediately cut off all contact between my children and me... AND THEN REPORT TO THE COURT AND OTHER PROS ON THE CASE THAT I WAS THE ONE WHO CANCELLED ALL CONTACT (in essence, that I've abandoned my children).

By then, I looked so bad to the judge and professionals on the case, that even when I did try to explain what genuinely happened, nobody wanted to believe me.

It took years to get her off the case. Like other writers on ripoffreport.com wrote on that site, I finally had to pay her off just to get her off my case.

It was sick. Please be very careful before utilizing her services.

I must inform you of the extortion techniques of this guardian ad litem. "Pay me or you don't see your children!" is her classic modus operandi.My colleagues, clients, and I have all tried to report her, but to no avail. She comes across as powerful, professional, and highly connected. She denies any such extortion techniques and uses court docs, largely created by herself, to deny these claims.Not believable? It's all in writing. And with the top witnesses in Miami.A multitude of cases have dragged on at the cost of families because of her extortion and false docs. Please be very careful before you work with her as a GAL, attorney, instructor, presenter or spokesperson. Do your research. It is recommended that you research sources other than her connected friends. You must be well-informed before you connect with Diane in any way.Thank you.

Diane is fully aware of her status as extortionist as she poses as a Guardian ad Litem... The larger issue is how to report her. Numerous professionals among us have attempted, but alas, she sits, even if ex oficio, on a majority of the reporting committees, if this is any indication of her abuse of power. It is not in the best interest of children to have false reports filed against the parents, who never abused them and who have professionals to state so, and to have no evidentiary hearings allowed in these cases of hers. Diane extorts money until everyone loses out, including the children. If parents don't continue to pay her well beyond what is owed, she files false, incriminating documents and will not let them see their children... at times for years. Full documentation is available in multiple cases regarding the same. Is this ethical? Think again, Unversity of Miami Law School!!!

Please be careful. She comes across at first glance as professional and then extorts. If you try to report her, it gets even worse. She very unfortunately teaches our youngest and brightest students at University of Miami Law School, apparently with a straight face. I find this dangerous and unfortunate. This woman does commit extortion in her GAL cases. I would be willing to exhibit all necessary documents. It may shock the legal community but it is factual and can be substantiated by bank statements, hand-written letters from her, and the like. At this point, it is fairly common knowledge that Diane resorts to extortion and similar control maneuvers. I ask that anyone considering GAL services, or professional speaker/teacher services to please reconsider. This is for the benefit of future innocent children and families.

This is a fake address and phone number. This woman works out of her home. Parents and professionals alike ask that you be very careful and review the reports filed about this alleged attorney at www.ripoffreport.com. On the Search button, enter her name, and you will see the filed reports and what has gone on with innocent families and children in Miami. We ask that you be extraordinarily careful. She will come across as very professional, but you must take it from parents and professionals alike who have been destroyed by this woman for many years. She has been described as the "sickest" cases some professionals have ever worked on, in their opinion. Please, we pray that you be careful.
