Personal Profile

Diamond Thomas joined Berkowitz Oliver in 2022. Diamond is a graduate of Fontbonne University (Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a minor in Marketing). As an undergraduate, she played varsity softball, interned with the American Youth Foundation, and was employed by the federal Defense Information Systems Agency as a Budget Analyst.

Diamond participated in the University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Law and Henry W. Bloch School of Business and Public Administration’s combined Juris Doctorate/Masters of Business Administration joint degree program and earned her J.D., with emphasis in International Law, and M.B.A. During the joint degree program, Diamond served as Vice-President of the Black Law Students’ Association, Vice-President of the Business Law Association, and Co-Chair of the Diversity Student Coalition. Diamond also served as a judicial intern for the Honorable Charles H. McKenzie of the 16th Circuit of Jackson County, Kansas City, Missouri, and she enjoyed serving as a research assistant for Professor Sean O’Brien in the areas of wrongful conviction relief, death penalty cases, and expungement matters.

Away from the office, she dedicates her time to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility initiatives, and she loves being active, whether it’s playing sand volleyball, slow pitch softball, or her new-found love of pickleball. She also enjoys traveling (having traveled to 7 different countries and hoping to visit more), and she loves brunching with friends.
