I've worked with Stephen Silverberg for over five years. In addition to being a smart, sharp and knowledgeable attorney, he's a wonderful, thoughtful and caring person. His help with my legal, financial and tax planning has been outstanding. I'm grateful for his experience, wisdom and counsel. I strongly recommend him.

Having to go through elder care planning is an extremely difficult and an emotional process. Stephen Silverberg was recommended to me and he didn't disappoint me on any level. His knowledge of both Medicaid and Estate Planning is outstanding. He was available and accessible throughout the planning process and Stephen is both supportive and understanding of how difficult these decisions are to make. He is thorough and comprehensive and his office is diligent with follow through and follow up. It is rare to find this level of expertise and compassion in one place. I have gone through this experience twice with Stephen, once for my mother (10 years ago) and currently with my father. I can't say enough nice things and praise how well everything was and is being addressed and handled. I highly recommend Stephen Silverberg and his firm.

After being recommended by a friend, Steve Silverberg has worked with my family for the past 12 years. He first worked in the case of my father in helping with medicaid and then in estate planning with my mother and father. His knowledge of elder law and estate planning figured most significantly in the money saved with the trusts and plans he set up for my mother. His administration and followup are timely and his compassion in his dealings with my mother and myself were above and beyond. He and his staff are prompt, responsive and knowledgeable. He answers questions clearly and directly. I would not hesitate to recommended him.

Steve Silverberg is among the best lawyers I know, and I am pleased to endorse him. He combines the skills and knowledge of an elder lawyer (special needs trust planning, medicaid and VA planning, asset protection) with a solid high net worth estate and income tax background, making him a rarity in this age of specialization. Lawyers come to Steve to ask questions, and that is the highest compliment of all.
