Alison is the best in her field
I’ve never thought working with attorney would be so great. She worked tirelessly with me to resolve all my pending legal issues. She treated me as a part of family. I do highly recommend her for your divorce, separation, and child support legal matters. SHE IS THE BEST period.

A positive experience from start to finish
I was referred to Alison by a trusted family friend to help me end what was feeling like the world’s longest divorce process. From start to finish Alison was professional, insightful, and proactive in her handling of my situation. She listened to all of my concerns, and guided me through the ups and downs of dealing with a difficult ex. I would highly recommend Alison Silber to anyone that needs to go through the emotionally draining process of divorce. She was wonderful to work with, and I now have the ability to move forward in my life.

Very professional and caring too.
Alison was fantastic. She clearly knew her stuff and advocated for me even more than I did for myself. Gave very good advice with proper explanations of what and why. Even advised me when I was making potential missteps. Highly recommend. You can see through actions that she really cares about her clients and has the knowledge to back it up too. Would definitely hire again.

You can't find better!
My search for representation began here, and I joyously return to this page to share my sincere gratitude and appreciation to Attorney Silber. Throughout our work together, she was kind, knowledgable and professional. She is very aware of the costs incurred by her clients, intentionally working to keep them reasonable; I found her to be more than fair. She skillfully guided me through an overwhelmingly stressful time. Alison is consistently accessible and responsive, keeping me informed and involved in decision-making, every step of the way. Within a very short period of time, she skillfully negotiated the desired resolution of my case. Choosing Attorney Silber was the best choice I could have made, and I have already made multiple referrals to her. She hears you, and she will fight for you.

Hired June 2019
She was absolutely fantastic very smart, fearlessly advocates and Doesn't waste time or your money on insignificant matters. Attorney Silber knows the law and will win your case. She’s kind and sensitive to the difficulties that involve family court. I wouldn’t hire any other attorney after having attorney Silber’s representation this past June. She was well prepared, on point and knew the facts inside out. Look no further attorney Silber Wins ! Her confidence is also assuring without the drama.

FIVE STAR REPRESENTATION 6/08/209
Don’t look any further for an attorney. I have been divorced for many years and over the years I have been back in court over support issues, medical & dental coverage for our only daughter. Over that time I have hired expensive well thought of attorneys who came highly recommended Who just didn’t produce good Results. Attorney Alison Silber was A Game Changer! She is smart very well prepared and is personally involved in your case from start to Finish. Attorney Silber is no drama, caring and attentive and fearlessly Advocates for her clients . Attorney Silber responds very quickly to emails, she prepares her cases herself which assures you the Client a MUCH better outcome in court because she knows your Case. She brings a calm to the process which was very effective but she’s a fighter too. She ADVOCATES AND WINS for her clients. I had a totally different experience being represented by Attorney Alison Silber In June 2019. Her fee structure is very reasonable and fair for a Solid representation she definitely didn’t over charge or charge for work not done. Attorney Silber is Bar None a Five Star attorney from start to Finish. I meet attorney Silber at her office in Longmeadow. She listened, took notes and got right to work. She’s very smart, brings calm to the process, she is completely honest and knows the LaW. Take her advice, let her guide you and you will Win. I take great pleasure in writing this Review and strongly recommended that anyone in need of a good family attorney Look No Further then Attorney Alison Silber. Sincerely, Tracy M

Highly recommend Alison
Anyone looking for representation I can't say enough good things about Alison Silber! She is very smart, professional and very good at what she does. Couldn't imagine going through this rough time without her on my side. Couldn't ask for a better outcome in my case.

On Point, Detailed and Well Prepared
I interviewed 3 attorneys to find one to help me with my separation/mediation/divorce. After the initial one hour consultation, I got the feeling that Attorney Silber would best represent my interests in this challenging process. She did not disappoint! Alison had a no nonsense approach, helped me identify where we would best succeed in negotiations and which battles weren't worth fighting. She was very cognizant of my budget through the whole process and would let me know which tasks were worth her time and identify the other tasks that I would benefit tackling. When it came time to meet with my spouse's attorney and our mediator to try and finalize a stalled separation agreement negotiation, it was Alison that shepherded the group to the finish line. She had us signed, sealed and delivered to file a joint petition that day. I was glad the smartest attorney in the room was working on my behalf!

Exceptional Probate Attorney!!
Attorney Silber was highly recommended to me from a another highly reputable non family law Attorney. My experience during the entire (quite uncomfortable) legal process with Attorney Silber ended with great results. I was treated with respect and incredible professionalism. Her vast experience in family law and ethical practices had gained me terrific results. She is truly an outstanding family attorney and extremely pleased to have the opportunity to attain her expertise on my behalf.

Thorough,helpful,and honest
Alison was up front about what needed to be done, or could not be done, to settle my custody case. She was professional and gave reasonable expectations, but delivered the best possible outcome. I spoke with several LAR lawyers before choosing Alison and I would absolutely hire her again over others.

Very helpful review of a contract
Alison Silber reviewed a contract for me (an Assisted Reproductive Technology contract with an agency). I would definitely recommend Alison. Her review and feedback were very clear, thoughtful, and helpful in identifying some issues to address and risks involved. Further, she provided feedback within the very tight timeline in which I needed the contract reviewed!

Attorney Silber was very professional and informative in every step of my case. If there was an area in which attorney Silber wasn’t able to assist, she directed me to some of her great resources that were very capable in completing their task. Thank you for all of your wonderful work.

An Amazing Lawyer
As we know the wheels of justice can sometimes work slower then we would like. Many say communication is one of the most important skills a couple has to master when dealing with life's issues. When family problems arise and logical communication ends and hope appears to be exhausted you may need a good lawyer. You cannot find a better family attorney then Alison Silber. All I can say that she helped my nephew who was separated form his daughter for a while. Today my nephew shares custody with his daughters mother. With more work to do. We as a family have developed a confidence and admiration for Alison's skills and professionalism. Whatever your problem you can depend on Alison Silber to help.
