Diane Wizig is a partner in the firm’s Houston office. Diane’s practice focuses on complex litigation, representing energy and financial services sector clients in a variety of commercial and consumer disputes. Diane has significant experience leading discovery efforts in class actions and bet-the-company litigation. She also has a proven track record of drafting winning dispositive motions in both state and federal courts nationwide, allowing her clients to escape the unnecessary costs of protracted litigation.

Prior to joining McDowell Hetherington, Diane first practiced for three years as an environmental litigator at Alston & Bird in Atlanta, Georgia. Diane then served as a law clerk to the Honorable Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers on the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.

While in law school Diane served as the marketing editor of the Emory Law Journal, president of the Health Law Society, and a member of the Turner Environmental Law Clinic. Diane received the Georgia Association of Women Lawyers Award, given annually to the 3L with “high academic achievement, integrity, service, and commitment to the law.” Diane also received a Master’s in Public Health from Emory’s Rollins School of Public Health and has given presentations on the benefits of having both a JD and MPH in the practice of law.
