I take a holistic approach to the practice of law. For me, the holistic practice of law upholds that all aspects of people's needs - physical, social, and mental - should be taken into account and seen as a whole. Using a holistic approach, all potential contributing factors that may affect a person's case are taken into consideration when assessing a person's overall legal situation.

Thank You!
Silky was very professional yet kind-hearted guiding me through a divorce which was settled completely out of court. She explained every step clearly and the office staff made sure I had all documents ready and properly filed. She was easy to contact and got back to me quickly with any questions I had. Thank you!

She is the best!!
I have been a client of Silky's for over 3 years! I have been going through a hard child custody case, and Silky has been on top of it at all times I never thought I would have my son but I do, thanks to Silky and her staff! She is caring and really knows her business. If you want the best Family Attorney Call Silky Sahnan.

Silky Is patient, kind, understanding, thorough, efficient and compassionate . She held my hand throughout the process. If it wasn't for her, I don't know how would I have gotten through. Thank you Silky -- you are a gem!

Compassion with teeth!
I have been seeing Silky for the past 10 months and am very pleased to say how wonderful she can make an uncomfortable situation. This is my first and hopefully last divorce and needless to say I was in foreign waters. Silky gave me the confidence I needed, and explained appointments and answered all my questions throughly. She made me feel at peace and always continued to give me words of support and encouragement. She is professional but compassionate. I like her newsletters with informative articles. The office is very nice and the staff friendly and professional. Silky was sensitive to my situation and very understanding with my personal struggles. I hope none of my friends end up needing a divorce attorney, but if they do I would definitely recommend Silky's services.

Help for our daughter
We started out with what we thought would be a simple case, that progressively became more difficult due to the opposition's tactics. It took a long time and a lot of hard work, but Silky Sahnan was able to get the job done in a fair and compassionate manner for us and our daughter. We are extremely grateful and satisfied with what she was able to accomplish on our behalf.
