Scott Douglas Silberman

About me

Scott Silberman, esq. is a Certified Specialist in Workers' Compensation.  He has experience representing both injured workers as well as employers and insurance companies, but now exclusively represents injured workers and their dependents.  


Coming from a family of workers compensation attorneys,  and his father being a retired workers' compensation Judge, Scott has literally grown up  with workers' compensation.  He has written law review articles and lectured to bar associations in regards to changes in workers compensation law.  


Prior to becoming one of the founding partners of Silberman & Lam, LLP, Mr. Silberman was a partner at Silberman Law Offices, LLP.  Before becoming an attorney, Mr. Silberman worked both as a claims adjuster and as a legal extern at the California Court of Appeal for Presiding Justice  David Sills.  When not working Scott enjoys Skiing and Scuba diving and spending time with his sons.
