  • Sean Andrew Bratner

    Ms. Silva is highly respected in the Family Law community, and she has deservedly earned that respect through her character, experience and work ethic. Ms. Silva recently mediated a family law case in which I was an attorney. I was thoroughly impressed with how carefully she listened to the concerns of my client during mediation. After listening, Ms. Silva's thoughtful and professional suggestions helped my client realistically assess the situation. The experienced input from Ms. Silva moved the case much closer to the resolution we eventually reached. Ms. Silva's involvement in the case was a huge benefit, and anyone dealing with a family law issue would also greatly benefit from Ms. Silva's knowledge, experience and judgment.
