Love Law Firm - October 2018

Meet Diana Larkin, Senior Paralegal

It’s been a long time coming! I am delighted to announce that Diane Larkin has joined Love Law Firm as a senior paralegal. I had the good fortune (and smarts) to hire Diane at a previous position and have been quietly whispering to her for three years that I wanted her to work with us here at the firm. Diane brings over two decades of corporate paralegal experience to the firm. She has worked with a privately held asset management firm, two Manhattan white-shoe law firms, a large retail investment bank, and a well-known publishing house. Diane understands corporate life at all levels, from working with a board of directors to dealing with administrative matters. She is also familiar with all aspects of business and legal operations, corporate secretarial matters, commercial agreements and transactions, and more. A proud New Jersey native, Diana resides in Union City, NJ. An active member of her community, she works closely with Union City government in developing and revitalizing her neighborhood. She is an avid horseback rider in her spare time. And I’ve never met a bigger Bruce Springsteen fan than her (well, maybe Marci Goldfarb, but I’ll let them battle it out). “I am thrilled to be joining Love Law Firm as their senior paralegal,” says Diane. “Francine and I worked together for many years in corporate life, and I couldn’t be happier to be working together again. I look forward to helping her grow Love Law Firm into the powerhouse I know it is destined to be.” Having Diane join us will make our firm better, stronger, and smarter. She is a resource who can bring her vast experience to your business. This is part of our “Build. Not Billed.” strategy. Please join me in welcoming Diane to the firm!

2. If forced to choose one, would it be shark diving, bungee jumping, or skydiving?

None of the above! But one of my sisters is a divemaster who has lived all over the world teaching scuba (particularly in Micronesia), and I am the only person in my family she hasn’t certified. So, shark diving it is.

3. Is there a documentary or book that really changed how you view a subject?

Without a doubt, “Johnny Got His Gun.” It is far from a happy book, but it really changed my whole thought process. It made me the pacifist I am today.

4. What piece of advice do you give others but find hard to follow yourself?

Wait to hear both sides of a story; there is always another version of the facts. This is particularly difficult when one side of the story is mine!

5. What is your favorite memory from high school? In school, it would probably be my junior prom — young, in love, and just a magical time. Out of school, it would be my first Bruce Springsteen concert — the first of over 40 since!

Q&A With Diane

1. What’s the most random thing you’ve ever watched all the way through on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, or Hulu?

6. What are you passionate about? And why?

I love just about everything to do with horses. I used to ride competitively, and while I will still ride when I can, it is not nearly as much as I would like. It’s my dream to one day own a small equine rescue farm, saving the claimers from the local race tracks.

I don’t know how random this is, but I was recently laid up at home for a couple of weeks, and the only thing that kept me occupied was binge- watching “The Handmaid’s Tale.” I can’t wait for the next season!
