When I was arrested for a DWI in November, I felt extremely helpless. They got a warrant for my blood and the result was extremely high and I felt as if I was going to be convicted of a crime that would tarnish my record and completely change my future. I have high ambitions and have worked very hard to be at the place that I am right now in my career and I only want to continue and go further in the future. Having this on my record might have meant that I would be unable to pursue certain career and personal goals that I have worked so hard to achieve. When I was referred to Jed Silverman, I was at the point that I felt so lost and confused about the legal system and my case that I was contemplating just pleading out. Even though I knew that I was being wrongfully accused, I did not see any other way since the State had claimed my blood was at a BAC of .172. This would have meant that I would have been at a BAC of .20 through .24 at the point of arrest! This was absolutely untrue but I felt cornered and out of options—who would believe me over the prosecutor and the blood test. Jed assured me that I did have options and he told me that I should fight for my freedom rather than giving in. Giving in would only mean that I definitely would have this on my record and my future would have to change.
Throughout the process, Jed and his partner were there for me. His entire staff worked around the clock preparing and researching for my case to help give me a fighting chance. When I felt confused, scared or alone they helped explain the process and made me feel more in control than I could have hoped for in such a situation. After 8 months of preparation, we went to trial. I could not have asked for a better attorney. Jed Silverman fought harder for my freedom than I thought possible. He not only is a firm believer in the legal process but he is also a man who fights for people to see the truth. He made the jury see the disconnect between my video and the BAC level that he State claimed they got from my blood. For three days he vigorously represented me and went beyond my expectations. I have always been passionate about the law but there have been times that I have felt the system was corrupt. He made me realize that there are still attorneys out there that represent their clients and the law in such a truthful and passionate way. He gave me hope that even with all the politics and corruption you see in the system, there is still a fighting chance for people like me. He used his legal knowledge and his genuine passion for his clients and after three days of trial, I got a “Not Guilty” verdict from the Jury. I want to be clear that even if I had been convicted, I would recommend Jed Silverman to any person in my situation. He gave me hope in a hopeless situation and I can single-handedly thank him and his partner for giving me the chance to continue and work my way up to where I want to be in my future. He forever changed my life and I WOULD WITHOUT A DOUBT RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE.

Jed Silverman was my lawyer on two different legal issues. He is probably one of the best lawyers in Houston. He's very professional and is very skilled in what he does. Although he is not very easy to contact directly, its understandably so since he probably is in many legal matters. At times it was very difficult to get any answers or direct contact from him at all. His staff would mostly be guiding you through the small things but once your talking to him directly face to face he is very patient and reassuring. I would recommend him to others and have him represent me again.

Super attorney is an understatement to describe Jed Silverman and his team of attorneys. I was looking at loosing my job and never being able to work in my industry again if convicted of DWI. After the BAC came back almost double the legal limit I thought all was lost. Nope, not with Jed on your side. He was able to get my charges dismissed!! Jed gave 110% of his effort to my case and he knew the impact a conviction would have on me and my family. Jed was referred to me by a very close friend and I would refer him to anyone I come across that needs legal representation. I was blown away with what he was able to do for me. Thank you so very much for saving my career.

Jed has delivered the assistance I needed in a difficult moment. He and his team worked with me from day one to resolve my legal situation effectively and fairly quickly. Not only that, but I have found him to be an attorney that won't hesitate to come down to your level in detail and empathy. This is something that I've found some attorney's typically struggle with.
I would highly recommend him for any legal matter he might be able to help with.
I feel strongly that he is a powerful ally for me or anyone dealing with the legal system. Thank you Jed.

Mr. Silverman helped me keep a DWI off my record, and keep my drivers license (and my professional license). I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a great attorney.

I would recommend Jed Silverman to ANYONE, without hesitation. I found Jed online, had never needed a lawyer before, I felt in over my head. I felt positive that I made right choice after our first meeting. After hearing my story, he checked the dossier of the other party, reassured me and gave me an outline of what to expect. I listened, went to every court date, He or one of his colleagues met me there, it felt good to have such respected people in my corner. My case turned out exactly as he said, which speaks to his solid experience, knowledge of legal process and understanding of human nature. Inadvertently, several times I was asked who my lawyer was, by various people from court personnel to other lawyers to bonds people, each time I was pleased to get a gesture or exclamation of surprise of approval that," one of the Siverman brothers," was an excellent choice in representation. My case was, categorized,"assault with a deadly weapon." A felony, I believe. In my opinion defending my family, however, Jed Silverman got it reduced to a misdemeanor. Several hours of community service, one year probation which was only six months, due to my excellent behavior. He may not be the most inexpensive, but I learned a long time ago, you get what you pay for.

I highly recommend Jed and his team. They understand your future is at stake and take your defense seriously. After a long drawn out legal battle Jed was able to get my case dismissed on the day of trial through his aggressive defense strategy. His team was responsive and able to do extensive research to get the best possible result. Jed is a great attorney who has your best interests in mind.

This was my first time dealing with an attorney so I should say that my standards were skewed. I was expecting a lot more communication in general but I've talked to several people who have dealt with lawyers including my sister-in-law who is a lawyer and all said lack of communication is more common than not.
Jed overall was very knowledgable and my biggest piece of advice if you become his client is to trust him. He knows what he is doing. He was able to get my case dismissed which was a huge deal. Trust the process; Jed and his staff are one of the best in the business.

I amthankful I went and followed a good friends advice on getting Mr. Jed Silverman as my defense attorney over a DUI charge. Mr. Silverman and his team treated me with respect and courteousness. Through patience and diligence, Mr. Silverman was able to dismiss my case, even when my charge seemed like an open and close case. Although blood was drawn and there seemed no light at the end of the tunnel for being almost 3 times over the legal limit. .... Mr. Silverman and his great defense team worked in completely dismissing my charges. I can now return to my career and family having that peace of mind that my record is cleared. Not only are they near the heart of down town Houston easily accessible, they make time to see you in person and keep you updated. .... I would certainly recommend my loved ones and friends to have Mr. Silverman and his team represent them if they were to get in a mess like I was in. Thank you guys for restoring my life back together!!!... Forever great full!

Let me start off by saying I am so thankful for what Jed has done for me, I was facing a felony charge (POM 4oz-5lbs) which if convicted could be up to 2 years in prison and a $10,000 fine and a becoming a felon which will would follow me for the rest of my life and destroy chances of having a succesful future.
Jed kept me and my family calm, and treated myself and my family with respect. Jed was able to get my case completely dismissed. Jed provided excellent legal advise and representation, he is someone who will fight hard for you and care for you as if you were his own. I hope I never have to hire a criminal attorny again, but if anything were to happen I would choose Jed Silverman.
