After reading the previews reviews posted for Daniel Silver, the first thing that I want to say is that I agree wholeheartedly with each one of them, therefore I will try not to be repetitive. I met Daniel Silver a few months ago when I had to go back to my Divorce attorney, Bill Gautier, because my ex-husband initiated a Modification of Child Support and Timesharing. He knew that my finances were tight and he worked diligently and efficiently always keeping in mind that I needed to keep my costs as low as possible. His ability to empathize and make me feel at peace every step of the way was what kept me sane these past few months. He kept me informed at all times and knew instinctively exactly what my priorities were throughout (ultimately the well-being of my children). I was so fortunate and blessed to have Daniel Silver on my side, an extremely competent attorney, a wonderful human being, and a rare find! I highly recommend him! You will not be disappointed.

It is with great pleasure and immense amount of respect I write the following. Daniel Silver, Esq. is in fact a jewel, an asset, and intricate piece of Gautier and Hasty (attorneys at law). Mr. Silver has the ability to communicate with clients in the most effective fashion suited for each one. His knowledge of his profession elevates him above the common. I am fortunate enough to have him on my team during this difficult time in my life, my divorce proceedings. During this uncomfortable time Daniel has had the uncanny ability to calm my fears, explain my options, and convince me of a pending brighter future. He has worked diligently on my behalf, protecting me and my future from opposing council, NOT AN EASY FEAT!
With all his knowledge, communication skills and effective wrangling of opposing council, it’s his humanity that strikes me. Genuinely caring about the client! Unfortunately, my case involves a bit more stamina than most….I am disabled, the stakes are high. Daniel has worked tirelessly alongside Bill Gautier, Esq. to protect, defend and advise me every step of this journey. I believe finding a man or woman with integrity in the legal profession is rare, but finding the calm in the eye of a hurricane is PRICELESS.
Thank you Daniel, I owe you a vast debt of gratitude. I won’t forget it, and in keeping with your mantra…. (In moving forward)….I will do just that, to the very best of my ability.

I could not have found a better attorney and law firm for my case. The history of my case goes back as far as 2001, when I first initiated my divorce. When I retained Gautier & Hasty to handle my case and Petition the Court to Modify my Final Judgment, I thought it was going to be a very complicated and litigated process. However, Mr. Silver provided a clear and concise plan of action which went into effect quickly and precisely. Today, I have everything I ever wanted in my life. A loving relationship with my children and a good relationship with my ex-husband. I owe it all to Daniel Silver, Esquire and William (Bill) Gautier, Esquire. They understand how difficult and delicate cases like this can be and how an understanding attorney makes a world of difference. Thank you forever, Daniel.

Daniel Silver assisted me with downward modification of child support. I highly recommend him.
He is a very skilled lawyer with a solid understanding of present technology. He uses the internet, modern devices, and software to accelerate court filings, research cases, confirm findings, and communicate with others in a much faster way than most. This allows him to keep cost lower while being very effective and accurate.
Any lawyer can present your case to court, but the process is a lot smoother when you and your lawyer are on the same page and agree with each other. I didn’t have to point this out to Mr. Silver. He told me within 5 minutes of my initial consultation.
As soon as I agreed to have him represent me, he didn’t waste time and started filing papers electronically with the courts. I was surprised and very pleased to see him move my case forward as quickly as possible. At times the opposing council seemed to be delaying the case. Right away, Mr. Silver filed more papers and scheduled court hearings to get opposing council to cooperate timely. My case could have taken much longer if Mr. Silver didn’t aggressively represent me from start to finish.
Mr. Silver contacted opposing council several times during my case. He always kept me informed of all communications. I received email copies, scanned attachments, and prompt phone calls of every conversation he had with opposing council. He quickly returned all my calls and replied to any emails. Communication with Mr. Silver was superb and very transparent. No hidden talks or private chats with opposing council. They talked and I was informed.
Throughout my case, Mr. Silver presented me with counter offers from opposing council. He made sure I had time to review the offers and always honored my final decision. He went back and forth as many times needed until we reached an agreement. He always made sure I was pleased with the outcome and also with his hard work and efforts.
While he negotiated frequently and aggressively he was very cautious of the legal expenses. He did everything he could to keep my cost low. He advised me when my legal choices could exceed reasonable legal fees and offered cheaper alternatives such as in-house mediation instead of private mediation.
I am very pleased with the outcome of my case. Equally so, I’m impressed with Mr. Silver’s legal representation and very surprised how he used technology to lower my legal expenses.
