Mr. Silverman is a wonderful,knowledgeable attorney.We have used him since 2011 and have been very pleased with his ablities in the court room.We highly recommend Mr. Silverman for any domestic problems.I will say that his office help could use some training in "people skills".

My wife and I retained Mr. Silverman on Jan 10th 2013 with a $350 consultation fee that we were told would come off the total of approx $1500. He sent documents for us to sign the following week. I signed them and returned them the same day. The defendant in the case sent me information to move forward with the case. I sent this information in to him on Jan 22nd.
The following week my wife called three times and left msg's that were never returned. I emailed his assistant on Feb 6th. Amanda replied that she left the information on Mr. Silvermans desk and he would get back to her. Never did. On Feb 11th I called was told My wife would get a call back that same day. Never happened. On Feb 13th the same.
On Feb 15th we wrote an email asking why we were not being called back. Even said if they needed more money let us know because we needed to get this moving. No reply. I called today and asked why no calls were returned and no one had any answers. Gina was very rude and said that nothing would be filled until we paid the balance in full. When I asked why no one had told us this before she said rudely "I'm handling this now and that's how it works." I said your office has not returned one phone call in over a month and now you’re telling me to forget all that and you'll start to work?" Not a chance.
The staff was completely rude here. Gina especially. I would highly discourage using this firm. They took our $350 consultation fee and made no attempt to do anything else.
