My name is Diego S. Cariaga Lema and I am the owner of Cariaga Law in Toronto.  I was born in Bolivia and raised in both Bolivia and the United States of America.  I am perfectly fluent in both English and Spanish.


I have a total of three law degrees from different jurisdictions.  I first obtained an LL.B in European, International and Comparative Law from the University of Sheffield in England.  Thereafter, upon completing a dual degree program I obtained my J.D. in Law from the University of Windsor in Canada, as well as a J.D. in Law from the University of Detroit Mercy in the United States of America.

My firm Cariaga Law proudly serves a diverse clientele across the Greater Toronto Area.  Cariaga Law is easily accessible for my clients around the Greater Toronto Area as it is just a few minutes away from both Kipling and Islington subway stations.


Cariaga Law's rates are highly competitive and I pride myself in resolving matters for my clients as much as possible out of court.  At times it is necessary to resort to court actions and applications, but due to the high costs and stress associated with these proceedings I prefer to use them as a last resort.  I believe in a spirit of cooperation with all parties, but if necessary to fight for my clients in court I do so zealously.


Please feel free to contact Cariaga Law.  I look forward to meeting you.



My initial meeting with Diego was fraught with uncertainty and a certain level of fear, as this meeting was to essentially direct me through waters I never thought I would have to travel through.

Diego made me feel welcome right away. He listened to my story without prejudice or judgement. Diego was able to navigate me through the maze of legalities with out making me feel out of my depth. He always kept my best interests at the forefront.

Diego’s direction was always clear, honest and the delivery was always warm and kind.

Diego is aware of the financial implications that a legal exchange can have. His fees are fair and his detailed invoices are to the point and easy to understand.

I am beyond grateful to the professionalism and kindness that Diego treated me with, especially during such a difficult time in my life.

Diego was very welcoming and easy to talk to from the very beginning. He was very professional, answered all questions we had and on timely fashion. He is also very kind, understanding and generous with his services. Given how stressful the whole process was, Diego always had optimism to share, which helped us get through the experience. We are so thankful that we had someone guiding us through it all and that it ended quite quickly and how we had hoped. Thank you for everything Diego!

Ashley Payne

Diego helped settle our family's legal matters successfully and allowed us to finally have some piece of mind. He was extremely professional during the entire process, had very reasonable fees and was always there to answer our questions. Thank you for providing us with hope during a stressful time in our lives!


Diego Cariaga is a superb lawyer who takes his clients interests to heart. I am amazed with the level of courtesy and service I received, and with his kindness and affability. He made the process of getting divorced a pleasure rather than a burden, and I could not be more grateful.

Nice to have a family lawyer nearby.  Diego was very helpful in my custody/access case.  Reasonable fees.

I came in recently to get my separation agreement done after being recommended to Diego.  He was very thorough in his description of the process and managed to keep things very civil with the other side.  Thanks to that we managed to settle everything out of court, which was ideal in such an uncomfortable situation.  He looked young at first, but was very knowledgeable and professional and made me feel very comfortable.
