An Honest Lawyer !!!!
I recently asked Josh Silber to handle an injury claim for me. I was very pleased that I did. Josh handled everything for me in a prompt, courteous and professional manner. In fact when it came down to the actual settlement, he far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Josh.

Caring, considerate, and extremely intelligent attorney
Josh Silber is an amazing attorney. He supported me throughout my lawsuit always keeping me informed on what was happening presently and what was still left to be completed. Josh guided me through the procedure and kept me collected and calm the entire time we were involved in the lawsuit. I would recommend Josh Silber to anyone that needed a personal injury attorney.

My favorite lawyer
Josh has handled a personal injury case that resulted in a Win situation for me. Josh kept me apprised of all his conversations, court filings, etc. each step of the way. I was comfortable enough with Josh to allow him to make some of the decisions for me.

Great service & a Great Settlement
With Josh Silber handling my case, I'm not quite sure what all those attorney jokes are about. He was responsive to my needs, and did everything possible to get me a fair settlement. I would highly recommend him for anyone that has a personal injury case.
