Great Experience
She listened to me and empathized with my position while also being direct and truthful about my options. She is a master of her craft and I would recommend her to anyone going through the rough process that is divorce.

Intelligent, Diligent, & The Voice of Reason
Beth's intelligence, vast experience, diligence and style make for an unparalleled winning combination. Beth took lead from the beginning in a complicated divorce from both a financial and emotional standpoint. Beth was able to bring facts and potential future scenarios to light using a calm, collaborative approach in an environment where both my husband and his lawyer continued to create noise. Beth led the research, discussion and follow-up with all parties including the court and financial institutions. Beth did all this while focused on an equitable settlement for both parties and while developing a strong, caring relationship with me. I could not imagine using any other counsel.

Lucky to have found Beth!
Beth came highly recommended to me, and she helped make the dissolution process as smooth as possible. Beth showed compassion and expertise in her guidance, and I trusted her every step of the way. Her calm demeanor could not have been more appreciated during such a trying time. I also highly recommend Beth to anyone going through this process.

Compassionate, Helpful, Responsible
Several years after my marriage dissolved, a QDRO agreement written by a different attorney was found to be out of compliance. Ms. Silverman worked with both me and my former spouse to resolve the issue to our mutual satisfaction. The process was time-consuming and she kept us informed through the maze of steps we needed to undertake.

Thank you Beth
At a time in my life where I was overwhelmed and backed into a corner Beth was truly an angel to step in and help me navigate such a trying experience. At every turn I felt like I had Mohamed Ali in my corner. She truly lifted a huge weight from my shoulders and I will continue to be grateful. Thank you Beth

Professional and Knowledgeable
Ms Silverman was professional throughout the entire process. She is experienced in the cooperative divorce process and helped lead my ex-wife and myself through every aspect. Her knowledge base is unmatched and she was always prepared. She is able to anticipate hang ups and manage the parties through the issues. I highly recommend Ms Silverman without any reservation.

Knowledgeable Professional + Caring Human Being = Beth Silverman
This attorney patiently listens and asks questions about the whole story both because she wants to operate from a full understanding of the situation as well as because she cares about what people are going through. Combine this with ethical consideration about what is fair to all parties and you can feel sure that all avenues have been explored. As a middle aged professional myself, I have worked with a lot of professionals who can't even rate one star. This attorney is truly exceptional. She will walk through whatever it takes with you.

I need more than 5 stars!!
If you find yourself facing a divorce, needing to lay every bit of your personal and financial information on the table for a complete stranger, you are going to want Beth Silverman at that table with you. Beth was a gift during a very difficult divorce. She is incredibly knowledgeable and extremely organized. She is absolutely professional and, most importantly, she is kind and personable. She combines those qualities so beautifully. I absolutely felt Beth cared about me and the outcome of my agreement. She was reasonable and rational while encouraging me to be the same. Her calm confidence was contagious and I always felt better after being with her and stronger just having her in my corner. She can be trusted to put in every effort to ensure each step of the process is completed, following up with details even after the final court date. I am forever grateful for the work Beth did on my behalf and, most especially, the humanity she brought to the table with her. She’s an excellent attorney but an even better human being and I feel fortunate to know her.

Superb Family Law/Collaborative Attorney
Superb lawyer in family law! I've been her client for 7 years. She helped guide me through the stressful time of divorce with compassion, support, and (when needed) tough love. Also helped me through other issues as they arose throughout the years. Very fair, open dialogue, prompt, flexible. I always felt extremely well represented. I've recommended her to several other people. Superb at navigating the collaborative workings of divorce and dispute. Skilled in tackling tougher subjects and showing respect for everyone involved. In addition, she is just one of those very good people in the world! I highly recommend her without reservation.

Former Mrs. S
Beth is the most AMAZING person that I have encountered. I have no doubt (and my Ex can testify to this) that I had the best possible legal representation. There was no rock that she left unturned to provide me with the best possible divorce settlement. Today I am financially independent and financially secured for life. With her magic-charming way Beth turned a painful process into an empowering force. Gracias my DEAR friend!

Ensuring an Exceptional Experience
Beth Silverman's empathy, caring and calm demeanor, brilliance, and organization provided great support as we navigated my disillusionment agreement together. From our first meeting to the last, I felt an assurance that I had an ally in a very stressful process. I "didn't know what I didn't know" yet Beth always had the essential questions that helped to guide me. Just BREATHE,,, Beth and her very competent associates will guide you through the rest.

Ethical, empathetic, conscientious family lawyer
I never dreamed that a divorce attorney could embody all of these characteristics and more, nor that I would ever need one. But when I was blindsided by my ex-husband's request for a divorce, someone referred me to Beth, and I'm so glad that she did. I am incredibly grateful to Beth for accompanying me through one of the worst times of my life with powerful advocacy, a calming and empathetic presence, and the highest level of conscientiousness and integrity. I felt like a tornado had torn through my life. I was devastated, and my life was in pieces. When the folks on the other side of the table made the process even more difficult than it had to be, Beth maintained her composure and unwavering commitment to getting me the best settlement possible. After that tornado came through, the hard work she did on my behalf has laid a new and I believe stronger foundation for a hopefully much brighter future. Words truly cannot express how comforted I feel by that. I would not wish this situation upon anyone else, but sadly, I have learned that many more people than I would've expected find themselves in a similar position. By highly recommending Beth to others - as someone so kindly did for me - I hope they too can find their way to this exceptional attorney when they need her most.

My review of Family Law Attorney Beth Silverman
I reside in California and my ex-husband was a resident in Ohio and filed for divorce. I had no choice but to obtain an attorney in Ohio. After much research, I called Beth Silverman. Within thirty minutes of our phone conversation it was clear Beth was who I needed to represent me during this unexpected and difficult time. When my marriage was ending, it was tremendously difficult to deal with both the emotional trauma and fears about how my life would go on after the divorce. The legal guidelines surrounding my situation led to more concerns. There are a number of reasons I chose Beth. It was important to me that someone who I hired specialized in family law. She has practiced for over 34 years and is an expert in family law. Beth earned the distinction from her peers as an Ohio Super Lawyer in family law every year since the list has been published in Cincinnati Magazine. Her law firm has been recognized by U.S. News and World Report and Best Lawyers ranking as one of the “best law firms” in the country. Her firm also received a “Best Lawyers” regional Tier 1 ranking in Family Law for the Cincinnati metropolitan area. Her accomplishments and successes speak for themselves. I quickly understood all the reasons she received her outstanding peer rankings. Beth knows how to communicate to the opposing side and the Judge respectively and clearly. She’s also empathetic, trusting and took great care in getting me through all the points I was up against in a composed and easy to follow manner. She's reachable. If I had a question or concern and left a voice or email she would return my call the same or next day without failure. Last but not least, Beth is an accomplished and skillful lawyer. I’m now on the other side and I couldn’t imagine going through this experience with anyone else. The outcome was more than I expected. Beth never missed a beat!

Client review
Beth came into my collaborative divorce after talks had basically stalled to a halt. She was able to gather the information from my original lawyer, reach out to my former spouse's attorney to become acquainted and get up to speed on our case in record time. Negotiations resumed quickly and in an extremely organized fashion. Each meeting had goals and purpose and she was incredibly skilled at keeping emotions at bay as we dealt with the trickiest aspects of the divorce. She not only won me over with her competence and calm demeanor but I could tell she was also very effective with my former spouse in her explanations to where he felt things were being handled in a reasonable fashion. After we finalized things in court she sat with me to make sure I understood all next steps in moving forward. Since our divorce, Beth has been both a sounding board and resource when I have run into situations we had not covered in our "Parenting Plan". She has given sage council on resources to involve and further insight into how agreements can change and be amended over time. I would not hesitate in referring someone to Beth. They will receive genuine concern, incredible insight and a very capable guide through a tough process.

Professional, empathetic, fair-minded, and extremely effective.
Beth Silverman exceeded my expectations in every way as my lawyer. She expertly guided me through a divorce and then years later with development of a prenuptial agreement when I got remarried. Beth is the utmost professional and knows the law inside and out. More importantly, she showed empathy during this very difficult time in my life. She was very fair-minded and respectfully "reeled me back in" when my emotions got the better of me. Beth's abilities as a lawyer and as a wonderful human being are matched by none. Beth effectively allowed me (the father) to gain custody of my 2 children when there well-being was in danger and then to work toward shared-custody down the road when things settled down. I strongly endorse Beth and her staff without reservation. She is simply the best - on all fronts.

Beth Gives You Confidence
I was blindsided by my husband's divorce request, and was completely unprepared for the road ahead. Beth became my trusted navigator. When it came to divorce, I didn't know what I didn't know. Beth ensured that I considered everything--from what would impact me & the kids today to what would impact me in the future. The net result was that I felt confident in the agreement. This confidence provided me the peace of mind that I need to move forward with my life. Furthermore, Beth provided me with outstanding advice on how to interact with my husband. I believe her counsel in this area in particular helped me keep my emotions in check and deescalate the animosity that was brewing. Now that the divorce is behind me, I see how important that was for the proceedings, our family, and my future. While divorce was not my choice, how I handled it was. And, Beth's assistance helped me handle it with no regrets.
