Diane Schoettl Lim Diane E. Lim

Diane Schoettl Lim came to Robie & Matthai following a career as a bank officer, controller and auditor. Her ability to analyze financial records provides an early look at the relevant financial issues. Often her work serves as the basis for settlement positions, avoiding the need for expert expense. When financial experts are needed, Diane's background enables the firm to better direct that work, saving on expert expense. More than once, Diane has quickly recognized major problems in financial records, enabling us to either minimize problems for our clients or take maximum advantage of the opposing party's defalcations. Diane not only works with experts in the accounting field; she also works closely on many of our cases with our expert attorneys, doctors, contractors, engineers, appraisers, investigators and toxicology experts.
