History & Overview:
Silver & Arsht was founded in 1984 by Samuel J. Arsht and Michael J. Silver, who had been associated together in another practice in Westlake Village since 1978. The firm is currently comprised of five attorneys and a support staff including paralegal, law clerking, and secretarial and accounting services. Our offices are located in an owner-occupied building in the heart of Westlake Village, located on the county line of Los Angeles and Ventura Counties.
The firm is engaged in a wide variety of legal fields including real property, corporate and business, family law, probate, estate planning, employment law, personal injury and general civil litigation. The diversity of the work handled by our office enables us to be available to serve the needs of the people and businesses in and out of the state. Clients of the firm include individuals, professionals, independent businesses, homeowners associations, partnerships, corporations and municipalities. The firm recognizes that the profession of law has become so complex that in most instances it is not feasible for an individual attorney to properly and economically serve all of the diversified needs of a particular client. For this reason, each of our lawyers, in addition to his or her general training, has concentrated in one or more specific areas of the law.
We believe that a full service approach is most convenient and beneficial for our clientele; accordingly, whenever necessary, more than one of our attorneys will be available to represent our clients’ interests, as a team, to provide our clients with the highest quality professional services at the most reasonable costs. Each of our attorneys is committed to furnishing all of our clients with the best possible representation and service on every matter in which we are involved. It is the foregoing philosophy upon which our clients have relied and upon which we are dedicated to maintain during our anticipated continued growth as a firm.
Many of our clients have expressed an appreciation of our philosophy of personal attention at a reasonable cost as the reason for leaving the larger downtown Los Angeles firms in favor of Silver & Arsht. Silver & Arsht is committed to the community it serves in that its attorneys are encouraged to participate in various philanthropic and voluntary endeavors. Our lawyers are involved in a wide variety of professional, alumni, public service and civic activities.
