This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
Landlord/tenant consultation
Mark advised me on a situation with my landlord while living in Chicago. Eventually the situation resolved itself, so I did not hire Mark as my attorney. However, he was extremely helpful and knowledgeable on the situation. If I ever needed to hire an attorney in Chicago, Mark would certainly be my top choice.

The best lawyer experience in my twenty five year career.
Mr. Silverman represented me twice over a two year period and both cases were open and shut. Mr. Silverman is a excellent listener and communicator. Landlord be aware of this man.

Highly Recommend Mark Silverman
Mark was thorough, assuring and above all a superior communicator. My roommate and I reached a favorable settlement with our landlord in large part to Mark. He was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend Mark to anyone seeking representation in security deposit disputes.

Outstanding Service
I recently used Mr.Silverman to help me break my lease in Chicago due to mold problems. He made the process extremely simple for me. He was always timely in his responses to my emails, and continued to keep me informed as progress was made with my case. In the end, everything work out as initially agreed upon. I would definitely recommend his services to my family, friends, and others.
