Review Paula Silverstein

  • Love Ms. Silverstein

    Posted by Leslie

    Ms. Silverstein and her office staff treat you like family. From my first appointment I knew I chose the right attorney to represent me. Attorney Silverstein was always available and even communicated in the evenings when the day was spent in court. She totally gets the dynamics as it relates to women and the disparity that continues to exist in the legal system. She always spoke honestly and presented the facts and her advice and counsel in a way that I always felt fully informed and comfortable. She and her staff are an extended family. I would highly recommend Ms. Silverstein without reservation!

    We are so impressed with Paula's communication style. Whenever we contact her or her staff, we are always well informed of the latest updates having to deal with our case. She is honest and gives us excellent advice and always on a timely basis. She was recommended to us by a friend who guaranteed us that we would be satisfied and we are extremely pleased with th results! She is so easy to talk to, always giving us explanations in easy terms to understand.
    Both my husband and I have referred at least three other clients to her firm, all being very pleased with their results. I would absolutely recommend retaining Paula for your legal needs!

    Paula was knowledgeable and always able to answer my questions. Every time I would start to get anxious and worry about my case, she would remind me to relax and reassure me that she was on top of my case. After a lot of back and forth from opposing counsel, conciliation, mediation, we ended up in trial. Paula did a great job examining and cross examining my ex and his witnesses. The judges decision was in my favor.

    I hired Paula to handle the mediation portion of my divorce. Many aspects of how she handled the case impressed me. When my ex-husband and his counsel dragged their feet, purposely or not, she could motivate them to move forward. The communicattion between Paula, her paralegal, and myself was very good. Paula took time on the weekends to address my concerns, particularly if she could not contact me during the weekdays due to being in court. Paula did a great job of revising the Marriage Settlement Agreement to protect my interests. Paula is professional and personable. She showed me compassion, yet still communicated to me what was realistic and practical. I admired how she fought for my rights and a fair settlement. I made a good decision in hiring Paula Silverstein!

  • Poor experience

    I did not get timely responses from the office or Paula when I had urgent situations arise. She did not show me all of the evidence that was presented by the other side in court. After the hearing was over she claimed she "won" yet the other party got my child 3 out of the 4 weekends and 3 hours one day throughout the week. I had no quality time. It was a terrible situation.

    Paula S. Silverstein’s response: “Our firm strives to make sure that all matters are handled in a timely fashion and that the utmost professionalism is shown. We welcome you to contact the Firm and meet with the partners to explain how we can better service our clients. Sometimes it is hard for parents to accept custodial decisions of the court.”

    I decided to hire Paula to handle my divorce and child support matter. I had the immediate impression of receiving the best support in all aspects of my case. She handled herself with broad knowledge and the necessary personal compassion that was needed. Her level of utmost discretion was very much appreciated throughout the entire process. Her experienced advise and proper execution was always intended. She acknowledged the facts of pain associated with making rational decisions and supported with appropriate direction always staying on course to bring the matter to end benefitting her client.

    I cannot express in words how wonderful Paula and her team of professionals were to have on my side while dealing with our custody situation. The guidance and support she provided to us was the peace of mind we needed during the stressful time. I took comfort in knowing no matter the day of week or time of day, Paula would immediately respond to my questions and concerns. Her performance in the courtroom is nothing short of mind-blowing. Paula has stuck by my family for over five years and has done nothing but provide us with excellent service! The Ilkhanoff and Silverstein firm is a part of our family because they care for us like family.

    My custody case was brutal. Mediation, Conferences, Hearings, Trial, Appeals....etc. It seemed very overwhelming. In our first meeting Paula basically told me "Relax....just focus on being a good dad. You hired me to handle the legal side. Trust me, do what I ask, and you will be fine." She understood the emotional stress that went along with my custody case and helped to keep me focused. Paula and her team sifted through piles of information, conducted hours of research, and developed a strategy that ultimately led to a winning trial. I highly recommend Paula and her team for family law cases. I will certainly continue to call on her for legal advice and representation.

    I used Paula as my attorney in my personal child custody case. She was such a blessing & help in this trying and at times very ugly process. Having Paula in my corner and seeing her prepare and function in the court room was amazing for certain. I would highly recommend her for any family law matters.I have used several other lawyers in the past but Paula will be the attorney that I recommend to friends and family if the need would arise.

    Paula is very good at making the truth be known when the other party is trying to bring her clients down, and lying about their own conduct. She keeps you informed, lets you know what it except, and has always gotten us positive results.
