Practice areas
  1. Appeals
    50%
    I have won a wide variety of cases – many high profile – from homicide to white collar crime, Internet pornography to Medicaid fraud, drug offenses to tax evasion and money laundering. The cases are too numerous to list and include civil appeals, both state and federal.

    42 years, 1,000 cases

  2. Criminal defense
    50%
    There is virtually no criminal offense I have not encountered in my three decades of practice in both state and federal courts.

    42 years, 800 cases

I received my law degree, with honors, from the University of Miami Law School in 1981.  I am admitted to practice in the courts of Florida, the United States Supreme Court, eight federal courts of appeal, and several federal district courts. 

While I am best known as a criminal appellate lawyer, I have also successfully handled criminal trials and civil appeals.

When you retain me, you can be assured I will personally represent and tirelessly fight for you.  Your case will not be assigned to an associate or other lawyer.

For the past several years, I have been selected to the prestigious Super Lawyers, which is limited to 5% of practicing attorneys.  I have consistently received the A/V rating, the highest awarded by Martindale-Hubbell.

Victory in the Appeal Court in a Criminal Case
I was convicted by a jury, and the judge sentenced me to a long term in prison, even though I had never even been arrested before. Truth be told, I had screwed up and now I really thought my life was over. Marcia Silvers handled my appeal. First thing, she showed how much she cared for me as an individual, not just another case file. Her written brief picked apart the prosecution’s case and exposed its weaknesses. I wasn’t at the oral argument, but my wife told me that Marcia was terrific. Lo and behold, the conviction was reversed! If I ever get in trouble again – and I won’t! – I’ll hire Marcia again.

If you need THE BEST look no further!!
Ms Silvers has been our attorney in a very trying and knotty situation. We have placed one of the most important person in our lives in her hands and we trust that she is victorious in all she does to defend him. She has not only been compassionate towards our family and she is excellent at what she does. Our family has said we would never want to be up against her in court! She is a tiger in the courtroom, she's a winner and we thank God for her because she knows her stuff!! We recommend her to everyone we know who need the very best attorney out there. We have the utmost confidence in her ability and knowledge. Besides that fact she is prepared, passionate, patient, kind and caring! She is EXCELLENT! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!
