The other guy said it was my fault........
I hired Silver and Silver to represent me because my insurance company was unresponsive and overall unhelpful. They treated me like I was at fault and I, clearly, was not. Bruce and Nicole Silver did a fabulous job representing me and negotiated an excellent settlement that I was very happy with. They are both very personable and very good listeners. They remembered my case and even my family members names every time I called. I never felt rushed and they walked me through the whole process. From start to finish it took less than 5 months. These are "real" people. I highly recommend them. By the way, their PA, Elayne, was wonderful also.

Simply The Best Very Professional Personally Involved In Details
Bruce is very professional with great expertise and knowledge. He is personally involved with every detail and his cell phone is always on. I’m very happy with the outcome of my case and recommend Bruce without reservation.

Great Attorney
I was involved in an accident that was hard to prove that I wasn’t at fault. Bruce helped me get compensation for my injuries and a good settlement when no one else thought I had a case.

Silver is Golden!
If you're calling Morgan and Morgan ... hang up the phone!! You want the best, right? You want someone who will pay attention to you? fight for you? and act in your best interest?? ... well that's Bruce and Nicole Silver! When we found ourselves in a situation where we needed a PI attorney, my husband let our 2 yo son choose ... and he pointed to Silver and Silver. Our son has my good brains! Their compassion and determination to fight for us brought about extreme satisfaction. They kept us informed every step of the way and were transparent in everything they did. I highly recommend Silver and Silver in any situation in which you may find yourself in need of a personal injury attorney. They don't call them "accidents" because they happen on purpose! Trust me when I tell you: Silver is Golden!

Highly Recommend
After a previous attorney had dropped my accident case, since it appeared to be going nowhere, Bruce Silver took my case and was able to get a settlement for me! I thank God for him. He demonstrated diligence, determination and professionalism in dealing with the case and courtesy to me as a client. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs, not just an attorney, but one who truly cares about his client's needs. Again, thank God for Bruce Silver and his team!!!

The Best in FL
I was recommended to Mr.Silver after my car accident and when I tell you he’s been there for me every step of the way I MEAN IT. Him and Ms.Elyane we’re great, they walked me through all of the proper steps I needed for my case. They were always there whenever I need advice on something I may have been uncertain about. When the insurance companies tried to make me a low ball offer Mr.Silver fought for me. He made sure I was properly compensated in a desirable amount of time. I’m extremely grateful for Silver and Silver, THEY'RE THE BEST

Professional, Knowledgable, Trustworthy
I was involved in an auto accident in Boca raton and suffered serious injuries to my arm, specifically a ruptured tricep. I had been recently relocated to South Florida and was unfamiliar regarding my rights and confused what to do. Seeking legal counsel I called a half a dozen attorneys to set up a consultation. All but 2 quickly responded to me but after speaking with Bruce Silver I was impressed with his calm steady informative demeanor and immediately retained him after the personal consultation. I am a difficult person to deal with but I liked and trusted him immediately. Mr. Silver, Bruce explained to and navigated me through the very difficult process of dealing with insurance companies to get me the medical treatment I was entitled to. He is a tough negotiator who has legitimate concern for the well being of his clients. Without him as my advocate I believe the outcome of my case would have been less favorable to me. If you are seeking an attorney who fights for his client, I recommend Bruce Silver

I would highly recommend this Attorney!
Bruce Silver went above and beyond in his help and services. We have dealt with attorneys before and the main difference was his availability and the way his staff treated us. We weren't just a 'number' to them. I would highly recommend him and will definitely call him first with any future legal problems!!

My daughter was in a car accident
My 17 year old daughter, Kelli was hit broadside by a lady who ran a stop sign last year. The lady who hit her had Ocean Harbor Insurance which is basically just like being hit by someone who has no insurance. My daughter went to the ER and had an MRI, X-rays and other tests which added up to $15,000. Bruce Silver worked with us to set up referrals for physical therapy so that my daughter could get the care she needed to make a full recovery. He was able to get all up front costs waived as we went through her treatment. Bruce and Elaine Silver worked with my UN-insured (U.I.)motorist policy in order to get us a settlement to pay down some of our medical bills. Bruce was also very successful in negotiating our bills with the hospital, the imagery center and the physical therapist way down to almost 20% of the original bills. He got us an initial settlement and then a few months later when he got the bills knocked down we got a second settlement which was larger then the first one. This money made up for some time my daughter lost at work and enabled us to put aside some other money in case she needs future treatment while still leaving some money left over for college expenses. My daughter is a legal adult now and learned a valuable lesson which offices and insurance companies are hard to deal with and that is why you hire an attorney like Bruce. He knows the ins and outs and will work for you so you can focus on yourself. I chose Bruce Silver for my daughter because he helped me through a similar accident over five years ago. This is now my second success story with Silver and Silver Law Offices. I truly hope there is never a third need for their services but it is comforting to know that in a sea of bad Florida drivers, I have a life-raft out there just in case. Hire this firm. You won't be sorry. Scott C.

Bruce Silver is Golden
Mr. Silver was retained by me and my husband on 3 separate occasions. In each situation, the professionalism and thoroughness were top notch. His guidance and advice were extremely valuable to our situations in 3 personal injuries cases: one where my husband was a passenger in a major car accident, another when my 5 year old son was mauled by a pit bull and a third when my brother-in-law was in a horrific car accident that left him hospitalized for over 6 months. His compassion and determination to fight for our compensation in all three cases brought about extreme satisfaction on our behalf. He kept us informed every step of the way and was transparent in everything he did. I highly recommend his services for any situation in which you may find yourself in need of a personal injury attorney.

Only attorney I would recommend
I highly doubt there is another attorney out there that will go to the lengths Bruce Silver and his team go to to make sure you get everything you need. Both times he represented me were incredible experiences. First time, when I went to him I had been ruled AT FAULT in the accident I was in. This didn't deter him from taking on my case, and in the end he got it overturned and got an amazing ruling on my case. The second time the insurance company was really coming after me on the property damage side of it. Again, Bruce and his team spent countless hours doing whatever they could to get this resolved (which he has no obligation to have anything to do with, nor do they get paid for assisting in the property damage portion of the case.) I can't express enough how great of an experience it was working with Bruce and the whole firm, who were always available, respectful, and would give me as much of their time as I needed. They are the only law firm I would ever recommend to anyone looking for a personal injury lawyer.

HIGHLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommended. I cannot say enough about the job that Bruce and Nicole and their entire staff did for my family. My daughter was attacked by a dog and when something like this happens, you really don't know where to turn. We were scared and confused as to what to do next. Bruce got started right away and did an amazing job with handling the legal aspects. He worked aggressively for us and did not quit until he exhausted EVERY avenue. He also helped us get through the aftermath of it all by referring out child psychologists and plastic surgeons. ALL of his referrals treated us in the same manner that his office family. He always made us feel better about the whole situation by assuring us that he and his staff would be there for us every step of the way. I truly believe that without his help, we would not have gotten through such a devastating period of our lives. He turned something absolutely awful, into something somewhat tolerable. For that..I will forever be grateful.

The best PI lawyer in Boca Raton
I had the distinction and honor of having Bruce Silver as my former law partner, there is no one better at analyzing and prosecuting your personal injury claim. Additionally, he is my own personal injury attorney having represented both myself and my family in several car accidents and a slip and fall claim. If you call me and ask for a referral to a personal injury attorney in Palm Beach County this is who I will be referring you to because I know he will treat you like family.

An incredible attorney
Bruce is an excellent attorney and I was blown away by his knowledge and commitment to my wellbeing. I was in a terrifying position and I am uncomfortable when dealing with the health care industry. But Bruce was by my side through it all, communicating directly with the insurance carriers and doctors. I was truly a blessing knowing I had him in my corner. I would highly recommend his services to anyone in need.

Fantastic attorney
My family, friends and I have used Bruce for many personal injury and criminal matters. He has a unique ability to be extremely tough and aggressive with the other side while still being very approachable and easy to work with from the client's perspective. He has consistently gotten great results for us and I am glad we got connected with him.

Professional, kind, dedicated and intelligent, will get you a nice settlement
First of all I have to say that I don’t like lawyers, and I have never written a review. This being said, I have to write this review because for the first time, I was able to find someone discover a true attorney. I was rear ended 2 years ago in Port saint Lucie Florida. I hired a Miami lawyer. After 6 month my case was dead. I was able to find Bruce Silver over the internet. I was reluctant to meet him but I did it. For the first time I can say that it worked!. Bruce meet me in person in his satellite office in Wellington Fl. He revived the case. Along the way he was able to make things worked. I am a school teacher and I don’t have too much time just like many people. I had to take an MRI and things weren’t going well because my schedule and the fact that I was unwilling to go through a close MRI. He was able to contact the owner of an MRI facility in Palm Beach, and they worked the schedule around me, all because Bruce Silver. In addition to giving you personal attention, he explained every step of the process and was always concern about my case. He sent me to several specialist, doctors etc. As I said before he was always providing good options for my case. This guy is very smart and will always explain you the whole picture, in order for you to make an informed decision. He works with his wife Nichole silver that handles most of the paper work. Bruce and Nichole keep things simple and they are very organized. Their main office is located in Boca Raton but I understand that they meet their customers in their satellite offices throughout Palm Beach and Broward counties. (They meet with me in Wellington.) I will definitely recommend Bruce Silver. He is a humane person that treats you with respect and dignity and sees you as a victim of an accident not as a number or a commodity. Many lawyers out there will never meet you in person; you just deal with assistants and secretaries. Bruce is there for you and allows you to have control over your case and again let you make informed decisions. I was able to get a very decent settlement and along the way I meet a great guy and I made a friend. (Something almost impossible especially in this field of work) In addition to being an excellent attorney, Bruce has too much potential to just continue being an accident lawyer. One day he will find a position where he will be able to affect in a positive way the life of many individuals. He is a leader. I will strongly recommend this guy. Without a doubt he is the best attorney I have ever met. I know that it sounds too positive but it’s true. (Like I said before I don’t like attorneys)… well know I guess I can say that I like one.

Incredible Bedside Manner with Tough Legal Actions
Bruce and his staff helped me with a rear end collision that resulted in my favor. They made the process super easy and kept me up to date on all paperwork needed, court dates, etc. Their open door policy felt like you were walking into a friend's house, rather than a stuffy office. Even when I had questions that maybe were not relevant to my case, Bruce or his wife willingly gave me priceless advice. Thank you so much for all your help!!!

Performed above and beyond
I hired Silver & Silver to resolve a traffic ticket problem. They kept me informed and even provided a postpaid envelope for my submission to the court. After the case was final, a court error failed to clear my record. I called and David Hollander resolved the issue promptly. Based my experience in this case, I would recommend this firm for anyone needed assistance with a traffic matter.
