Dedicated Attorney
I highly recommend Attorney Rachel Silvia for any family law matters and custody issues. From start to finish she provided me with honesty, compassion and excellent legal advice during one of the most challenging times in my life. She is highly responsive and was able to communicate effectively with all parties involved, including an out of state attorney. The entire team at Ryan & Faenza was helpful every step of the way. Their patience, kindness and dedication to their clients doesn’t go unnoticed. Thank you Rachel for everything you’ve done for my family and I over the past two years, I’m forever grateful! You rock!!

Well Prepared & Professional
Attorney Silvia was kind and thoughtful. Getting divorced is never easy - Attorney Silvia was not only looking out for my best interest legally but also gave me the confidence to speak freely and honestly about my case without fear of judgement. Her counsel was both comforting and empowering. She was always available to discuss my case and was very honest and forthright with information regarding the legal options and challenges that could be presented. Attorney Silvia is extremely detailed and organized - something I tend to lack - it was helpful to have her direction and patience as the proceedings commenced. Her advice and counsel gave me a quick, fair and efficient legal path for dissolution of my marriage. A very difficult time made much less difficult because of her work. I would highly recommend Attorney Silvia - I can't say enough good things about her tremendous work and kindness.

a disheartening phone call
The ending of very long relationships can be complicated and difficult on so many levels. Healthy respect and empathy seemed to be in short supply during a very short conversation I had with Attorney Silvia. I am dealing with some very difficult fallout and am trying to find my way forward. Attorney Silvia showed no understanding, compassion or interest. It is fair for someone to feel that they are not a good match. But an empathetic caring person would make suggestions for other attorneys or other ways of dealing with the situation. Seem seems sweet and friendly, but what she was saying was rather judgmental based on a real lack of information and understanding. Possibly she was triggered by what I brought up. I certainly felt deeply dispirited after our conversation.
