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.

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.

She spent 30 min on me and didn't charge me for it. She game me great insights and made me feel comfortable with how things are going with my legal case. She told me that she no longer litigates. She mentioned that she has other lawyers at her firm who does, but she didn't push me to hire them at all. She held her ethics highly as a professional and showed respect to other lawyers.

While I don't believe my divorce was particularly difficult or contentious, I am grateful to have had Beth at my side throughout the process. Beth effectively guided me to creating reasonable expectations, and we worked as a team to an equitable outcome. There were no surprises throughout the process, largely because of Beth’s experience enabled her to accurately anticipate. Beth was more than prepared for every meeting, however she also worked hard to ensure I was ready for multiple potential outcomes. I felt that Beth was cognizant of her fees and she worked expeditiously leveraging her team when appropriate. However, I never felt that Beth was rushed and she was incredibly responsive to any of my calls/e-mails. I would enthusiastically recommend Beth should anyone have to enter the difficult path of divorce.

Beth has been and continues to be my trusted, rock-solid legal advisor, who has guided me through a challenging divorce. She provides a wealth of practical experience and is effective at coming up with alternative solutions that suit both parties well. I am extremely satisfied with Beth's overall commitment to my case and high ethical standards. I highly recommended Beth and staff.

Unfortunately, I have been a participant in two failed marriages. But fortunately, I have had Beth as my representation in both cases. Beth conducts herself in a kind, professional, non-judgemental fashion, and does so with the upmost integrity in her dealings not only with me, but my ex spouses as well. This compassionate consideration helps to maintain a key level of respect for everyone involved and tries to avoid the potentially damaging emotional pitfalls this path is naturally fraught with. This allowed us to better focus on all those collaterally affected by the separation in an effort to minimize the damage to them rather than trying to impose the maximum damage upon one another. I have decent relationships with both my ex wives, in part due to the way the process was executed…and for that I credit Beth and her guidance of me along with the negotiations.

My experience heading into divorce is not an usual one. I was scared, nervous, and so hurt that my marriage had failed. I, like many housewives, stayed home to raise four kids and allowed my husband to take care of the finances. (Foolish on my part). So, going into a collaborative agreement was frightening.
Beth was so patient, knowledgeable, and listened. She truly can get to the heart of things very quickly. What I found so unique about Beth , was as insightful as she is about people, she is also about the law and process. She did not miss a beat. She was ahead of the game the majority of the time. She would be the first one to get things going when things seem to stall out. She gave me the best actions and responses to take to my then husband to create a peaceful conversation.
Our divorce has been final for several months. I am so thankful that I had Beth for a great settlement and mostly that I have an amicable relationship with my ex. She created a peaceful and unemotional environment to allow us to move through the process maturely.
I will always recommend her as the best attorney. But, I am now glad to call her my friend.

Beth is an extremely detailed attorney who never misses a beat. Was impressed with her preparation with all aspects of our meetings and divorce process. She is able to assess her clients needs and tailors her consultation accordingly. Lastly, she is a wonderful person and concerned with one's personal well being. I highly recommend Beth.

Beth Silverman negotiated a relatively complex divorce for me. She shows significant Insights, both emotional and technical in nature. She seeks to clearly understand the issues in the divorce and the objectives of the person she is representing. Beth worked diligently to bring the proceedings to closure with the right amount of counsel and pressure to come to a common settlement. She understands financial matters very well. She made creative recommendations and was very clear in responding to questions. She is a strategic negotiator, looking at finding a reasonable common ground for me. She provided outside resources needed for some special analysis and recommended a final mediation to conclude the negotiations. Beth was very knowledgeable about complex tax and legal issues that were prevalent in my divorce. She was combative when needed but maintained a very collegiate atmosphere with me and with opposing counsel. Beth has an excellent reputation with other members of the Collaborative. Beth was recommended to me by two other friends who had retained her. She exceeded every expectation that I had. Several years after my divorce, I am very thankful for what she negotiated on my behalf. She also talked me off the ledge a few times and helped me keep my composure during the negotiation process. She is an excellent attorney and a pleasure to work with under difficult circumstances. She tried to bring closure to open items and did not drag the negotiations out or prolong meetings. She carefully managed the fee and billing efforts. I can strongly recommend Beth.
