Diana J. Elston

Ms. Elston joined Jones, Skelton and Hochuli as an Associate in 2012, and focuses her practice on general civil litigation and insurance defense, Indian law, personal injury, premises liability and bad faith. She grew up in Tempe, where she taught elementary music for two years before making a significant career change and attending law school in San Diego, California. While in law school she interned at the Superior Court of California, the California Attorney General’s Office, and served as a judicial extern for the Honorable Ruben B. Brooks at the United States District Court.  After law school, she lived in Tucson for two years while clerking for the Honorable Judge Pelander at the Arizona Court of Appeals. 

Before joining the firm, Ms. Elston spent three years in Flagstaff, practicing general civil litigation and bankruptcy.  Ms. Elston was thrilled to be back in the valley, where she remains an active alumna of Alpha Omicron Pi, serving as their chapter adviser at Northern Arizona University.
