Highly Recommend!
Atty. Silverblatt provided me with exceptional representation during my separation and divorce. Always pragmatic, he gave me sound legal advice concerning all aspects of my divorce including, but certainly not limited to, custody, equitable distribution of property, and child support. His extensive expertise proved invaluable as I faced complex issues regarding investment properties, pensions, and childcare provisions. That said, I am most appreciative of his compassion and reassurance as I struggled to work through the most emotional and tumultuous experience of my life. Without reservation, I recommend Attorney Art Silverblatt to any friend who finds herself in a similar situation.

Arther Silverblatt
I recently retained attorney Silverblatt for his professional services and was very pleased with his professional manor, attention to detail, and his frequent communication with me. He also did exactly want I hired him to do for the amount quoted, even though I know there was more involved than initially expected. I would highly recommend him.

I strongly recommend Silverblatt and Assosiate
Recently I was in the need of an attorney to direct and assist me through my divorce. I wasn't sure which attorney to use and asked some friends and heard nothing but horror stories from every person I talked to. I went on-line and started reading reviews and they were all pretty consistent when it came to family law. I actually ready the blogs on this site before choosing Arthur Silverblatt and almost didn't use him but because of his location it was convenient for me. Well now that my divorce is behind me I can tell you I was more than happy with this firm. Every time I called Silverblatt and associates, Arthur called me back. Not someone else on his behalf. In our initial meeting he told me what it would cost to represent me based on the circumstances of my case. Well those circumstances changed multiple times making my case more complex. At the final meeting I asked Arthur how much I owed him for the additional effort by him and his team that was outside the original agreement. He told me NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE. This firm did what they said they would, when they committed to do it, for the price they said they would do it for. If this is the service you are looking for I recommend Arthur Silverblatt and Associates.

Confusing and Not on your side
I hired him because he came highly recommended. Will not do anything unless you pay him up-front. Very very confusing. Does not explain anything clearly. He let the opposing lawyer walk all over me and simply settled. He lost steam after the 1st year. He works for himself and not for the client. Just because he has over 40 years of experience, does not mean he is good. It actually means that he is stale and worn out and is in a hurry to wrap things up. Because of the number of years, he has worked in the area, he is best buddies with most of the older lawyers. Please do not go to him. I can’t emphasize enough that if you are not fully invested in your own case, he will do nothing. He appears very attentive, but it is just a ploy. He will return all your calls. Never responds directly via email. But every conversation leaves you more confused. He uses legal language and does not break it down to plain English. There are so many better lawyers in the area. Please DO NOT hire him.

The worst Lawyer !
I wasted time and money for around two years with this lawyer. Nothing got accomplished !! Two years later and I am at the same point when I started. It is the worst service you could find.
