Integrity, Smarts and Resourcefulness
Mr. Silver's name came to me through the recommendation of a trusted lawyer friend after I had dismissed the first law firm that seemed intent on a strategy that would be long, expensive and contentious. On the other hand, Daniel fought hard on those issues where the law was both clear and favorable to this case and he resisted the temptation to make laborious but dubious attempts to win on every minor point. He counseled clearly on each issue concerning the division of assets by weighing his estimate of what the incremental legal costs would be against the chances of winning that specific issue. This is the integrity that clients look for in lawyers and all professionals. Daniel counseled strongly against retaliating in kind when facing harassments, instead sticking to the factual arguments and probabilities, always discounting the emotional in favor of the rational. This led to positive legal, financial and personal outcomes. Daniel had a strong knowledge of business law and contracts, which aided greatly in finding strategies to operate my business successfully under the strict guidelines imposed by status quo laws. I believe a big part of success in any profession is having the personal skills and contacts to know whom to hire when you need the assistance of other professional firms. Daniel's firm, Gautier & Hasty, picked an exceptional forensic accountant and gave showed great judgment on the choice of the mediator. Overall, the team Daniel put together gave me (and I suspect the opposing counsel) the confidence that our arguments would be very strong in court and well respected by the judge. In the end, this edge was what we needed to compel the other party into a successful mediated agreement and avoid court altogether.

Superb Family Law Attorney - Very Skilled and Very Ethical
Dan Silver of the PRADA Law Firm represented me in my divorce proceedings and won my trial against a very difficult and unscrupulous opposing counsel. I was referred to Mr. Silver by several highly esteemed attorneys who all said that he was my best choice for representation. Mr. Silver was always available and consistently provided sound legal advice. He has an excellent team and they were very supportive support in my case. As we began to work together, I learned that Mr. Silver is well known for settling cases. This is in stark contrast to other family attorneys who advocate a long drawn out (expensive…) process. Because our opposing counsel was extremely difficult, with no scruples and still getting paid… Our proceedings took two years before a final judgment was entered. Mr. Silver is levelheaded and has a very clear/extensive knowledge of family law. Of note, he is a good listener He knows how to keep his clients out of trouble and is consistently the voice of reason, with his clients, other attorneys and in the courtroom with the family Circuit Court Judges. Now that we are living in a world of COVID with remote zoom hearings and trials, it is important to have an attorney and team who are tech savvy and comfortable with this electronic format. After working with Mr. Silver’s firm for short period of time I was pleased to learn that he and his staff are very familiar with technology, and they have the ability to utilize it well when it counts the most, at hearings and trials. I have nothing but great things to say about Mr. Silver and his superb representation. If there was any way to give him a higher recommendation than the very best, I would certainly do so. If you’re hoping for a good result and prefer to work with someone who is reasonable, levelheaded and ethical, Dan Silver and the PRADA Law Firm should be at the very top of the list.

Daniel Silver is so helpful
Daniel Silver acted like a brother in his advice to me. With his good advice I'm able to move forward with a favorable perspective. I'm so thankful that Daniel as a very successful attorney was able to spend so much of his valuable time to say those words that gave me such a brighter outlook.

Excellent consultative lawyer
Daniel is an excellent lawyer and was a perfect balance of being consultative and effective. He was able to make the process very smooth overall and worked collaboratively with the opposing counsel. Overall the process is emotionally challenging and I recommend a balanced voice of reason like Daniel on your side.

DANIEL REPRESENTED ME IN PREPARING AND NEGOTIATING A COMPLEX PRENUPTIAL AGREEMENT. PRIOR TO BECOMING A LAWYER I WAS A BUSINESSMAN FOR OVER 50 YEARS; AND HAD TWO IN-HOUSE LAWYERS WHO WORKED FOR ME-AS WELL AS MANY OUTSIDE LAWYERS WHO REPRESENTED ME IN MANY MANY CONTRACTS AND TRANSACTIONS. DANIEL IS AMONG ONE OF THE BEST TRANSACTION LAWYERS I HAVE ENCOUNTERED. HIS EFFICIENCY, KNOWLEDGE, AND EXPERTISE WAS INVALUABLE; AND WE CONCLUDED QUICKLY AND COMPREHENSIVELY.

Problem Solved - Divorced
Daniel Silver and his firm deserve my gratitude for assisting me with my divorce. Divorce is not an easy process and can be stressful, but having a strong legal team on your side can make a big difference. They kept me up to date on every development in the process. My first divorce taught me that it does take some time and patience to reap the rewards in the end, but it took a while. I wholeheartedly endorse PRADA Law for your divorce or any other legal concern. You will receive courteous service and be treated with respect. Thank you again.

Helped settle my case out of a bad situation
Daniel helped me make the best out of a bad situation after my ex-wife opened a post-judgement case to remove nearly all my time-sharing with my children. With his experience and expertise, we were able to settle and gain most of my timesharing back that she was withholding from me. Daniel knows the family court system extremely well, and I would recommend him to anyone who is caught in what may seem like an irreconcilable situation. Thank you for your help Daniel.

Excellent Attorney
Daniel was very personable, knowledgeable and solution focused. Divorce is a painful process, but having Daniel as my attorney helped me feel supported and best of all, the divorce, which could have dragged on for years, was expedited via an amicable mediation.

Simply the Best!
Daniel Silver --a partner at PraDa Law--is among the best and most compassionate lawyers I have ever met. As a practicing attorney myself, I speak from deep experience. He handled a matter for me after my son (who initially retained them) became seriously ill. Even though my son was out of commission, he worked tirelessly to get the matter resolved. I was ready to give up but he was not. I am so grateful for how he handled the case and for the kindness he showed to my son and myself. I highly recommend PraDa Law. While I hope to never need legal advice in the future, I would retain them again in a heartbeat.

Daniel Silver worked tirelessly on my case. He was diligent, understanding, unyielding yet sincere, straightforward and honorable. He made sure my son and I received what we deserved. He listened to our needs and supported me through my first and last custody case. I am very grateful and thankful for his help. He was always one phone call away despite his wife recently giving birth to twins. Thank you Daniel Silver, you are appreciated!

Family Attorney | Oct 20
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have come to know Daniel over the past several years as an excellent attorney who focuses his work on family law matters. I refer clients to him regularly because I trust Daniel with their cases without question. He is both competent and kind in an area of the law that many times lack those qualities from those who practice within it."

"Daniel is an excellent and attentive attorney who I strongly endorse."
Family Attorney | Jun 26
Relationship: Supervised lawyer
"I have known Dan Silver since he was a law student at "the U". He part-time clerked with me for about a year and a half during his law school studies and was neither ever satisfied with being a clerk nor should he have been. To this day, almost 15 years later Dan continues to exhibit the finest qualities that a lawyer can demonstrate: commitment, dedication, passion, zeal, a solid ethical compass and a all are rooted in a concrete foundation of caring and diligence. I selfishly wish that his heart compelled him to remain in the criminal defense industry (such that we could have continued to litigate various crimes cases together) but I am happy for him (and his clients) that he found his niche in the family arena. If you retain Dan Silver to assist you in your unfortunate domestic dilemmas then you can (and should) sleep well at night. I wholeheartedly endorse Dan Silver."
Family Attorney | Jun 25
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse Daniel Silver. Family law has become a very complex area with many new changes. Divorces and custodial issues require a strong and aggressive advocate. Mr. Silver has the experience necessary to handle any problem you may be facing. Unfortunately, many family related legal issues these days have a domestic violence component. Mr. Silver has experience in criminal defense and that separates him from other lawyers. If you need a lawyer to represent you who knows his way around a courtroom, put Mr. Silver on your side."
Family Attorney | Jun 25

"I would recommend Dan Silver to anyone looking for family law advice in South Florida. Dan is knowledgeable and proficient in his practice area.
