Diana was born in the former Soviet Union in a large city of Minsk.

Diana was the first person in her family to attend college and graduated with honors from State University of New York at Stony Brook. Her major included not only History but also Russian Language and Literature.
Diana began her career as a paralegal at the international law firm, Proskauer Rose LLP. Her desire to attend Law School was realized when she was accepted to New York Law School. While attending NY Law, she continued to work in various large law firms in both defense and claimant litigation. With her prior experience working as a Paralegal and internships at major law firms, Diana gained a greater understanding of the operations of large firms. She also appreciated that a small firm affords more value to the client and individual, that she passes on to her team at Bronnberg & Henriquez PC.
A PERSONAL UNDERSTANDING
Diana's early experiences of seeing the struggles that her parents, who did not speak or read English well, encounter with paperwork, documents, even medical bills, helped her be the advocate for foreign workers who are underrepresented and need someone to be their voice. She also understands how devastating an unexpected injury or accident can be for a hard working family.
When Diana began her career as an Attorney at one of the Largest Workers' Compensation firms in New York City, she represented Verizon workers, CSEA, and City Employees. Having a Dad who works for the Union has made her a top leader in understanding and explaining the benefits afforded to Employees not only through the State but also through the Unions. In 2005, Diana transferred to a top Long Island law firm. It was there she developed skills in the area of Social Security Disability as well as expanded her knowledge of Workers' Compensation. She established cases for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, heart attacks, and PTSD victims post 9/11. She managed many cases involving Nassau and Suffolk county police officers, teachers, sanitation workers, town workers, home health aides, and TLC drivers.
