Marcia Silver is one of the best at her job. Even that doesn't accurately describe the service you will receive if you call on her for help. Not only did she prevent me from serving serious jail time, she was very helpful during the entire process. She was always very clear with what she can and can not do. She laid out all the possible options in terms that I could understand without ever treating me like I committed some horrendous crime (the opposing party definitely felt like I did). She is very well educated, has clear knowledge of what occurs in court and prepares you for everything. She takes her time to thoroughly review your case and really listens to your situation with an unbiased approach. She created a low stress environment and somehow exceeded all expectations I had going into court. Even after all was said and done, she went above and beyond to make sure that everything occurred the way it was originally agreed upon. I would highly, highly recommend Marcia to anyone looking for legal advice. She will help you as if you were her own child, I don't have any other way of describing her service.
Marcia went above and beyond anything I expected of her during a drawn our and painful defense process. I had to defend what I considered a redicualous restraining order from a former room mate. She walked me through the process and help protect me from an angry person bent on hurting me through the legal system. We were successful and had a few laughs along the way.
I highly recommend Marcia for any defense work.
Marcia has the ethics, intelligence and drive to do the right thing and actually represent you (as opposed to those who just take your money and do a little paperwork to justify their fee). Yes, I had one of those bad lawyers who couldn't be bothered to even return my messages when timelines got close. Marcia is not like that at all. She was on top of everything that came around the bend. She knows her trade, she is smart and she is very conscientious. I can honestly say she is one of the few lawyers out there with a soul. I highly recommend her and if I ever get in a spot again, I won't hesitate to call her.
There is nothing but positive things I can say about Marcia..without her help and knowledge of the court system, I would not be where I am today. She was there for me since the first time I talked to her on the phone. Marcia worked on my case for a good 2-4 years. She is very aggressive and never agrees to anything that is not fair for her clients. She definitely doesn't take 'NO' for an answer. I can honestly say that she is worth every single penny I paid for. You pay for what you get. I don't want to keep going and bore everyone out but i do highly recommend her service although I am glad that this matter is over. Marcia, I thank you and wish nothing but the best for you!!!
Marcia was there for me every step of the way during my case. She took a vested interest in me as a person. She was interested in knowing who I am. I felt like Marcia genuinely cared about my case and me as a person. I put effort into my case and I felt that she took notice and was even more interested in helping me. She was on top of everything from communicating with the DA to communicating with me. I was very happy with the outcome of my case. She even helped me afterwards with retrieving my property from the police department. At the end she even told me that I still had $300 in my expense account and returned it to me. I highly recommend this attorney.
Marcia is, by far, the best attorney I've ever worked with, and I've worked with a several.
Marcia knows her business. She knows the court system in general and knows her way around California
court like no other. She had to work part of my case in a County she doesn't usually work in and made it her business to get to know decision makers in lightning speed, all while away from her usual venues. She's aggressive, relentless, and will stop at nothing to see to it that her clients' interests and particular circumstance are understood and taken into consideration. Unlike most attorneys I've worked with she will not lay down to the local politics of the judicial system, but rather embraces and works them to her clients' interests. I cannot say enough about how much Marcia did for me, personally. She saved my life.
