Diane J. Blagman serves as Senior Director of Governmental Affairs in Greenberg Traurig's Washington, D.C. office.

"Diane Blagman at Greenberg Traurig is lobbying for the Grammy Foundation on 'appropriations and education issues' important to the music and arts education group. Blagman worked on the Hill for various House Democrats from 1974 to 1993." [1]


"Diane Blagman, a former staffer at the House Appropriations Committee, and currently of Greenberg Traurig, was the congressional liaison for the 9/11 Memorial Concert in Washington and serves on the board of the Grateful Dead's charitable foundation. She has become adept at winning money for her entertainment-industry clients, such as the $150,000 earmark she picked up last fall to fund the Santa Monica-based Grammy Foundation's 'educational activities'," Ken Silverstein wrote July 2005 in Harper's Magazine.
