About me

Welcome to my profile!


My name is Marci Silver.  I am a resident of Gainesville, Florida
and I am a Florida native.   I graduated from University of Florida Law
School in 1999 and have been practicing trial law ever since.  I have
mostly practiced in the area of criminal law but I do family and civil
work as well.  I have tried many cases at both the misdemeanor and
felony level from domestic battery to home invasion robberies in over
50 trials. 


I have believed since I have become a lawyer, that I am in a service
field and as such I work for my clients.  My goal is to give as much
information to a client as possible so that they may make an informed
and reasoned decision in their situation.  It is not my job to make the
most difficult decisions for my clients but for me to merely be their
guide to a final resolution. 


You may contact The Law Office of Marci D. Silver, P.A. either by
phone at (352) 381-0082, in writing at 11 NW 33rd Court, Gainesville,
FL 32607, or leave an email on this website. I look forward to being
able to assist you!
