  • Country: United States
Biography:

Diana Snyder is an attorney and consultant best known as the architect of the 2015 Turbin v. Abbassi lawsuit, in which mother and rape survivor Kimberly Turbin sued her obstetrician for battery following a non-consented, unnecessary episiotomy. She is licensed to practice in Massachusetts and California, and maintains practice dedicated to perinatal patient rights. In addition to representing parents, Diana advises providers on how to implement a culture of true informed consent, and the ways in which respect for informed consent and refusal promotes, rather than detracts from, safety and risk management.
