Family Law


Based on his nearly 40 years of experience in divorce litigation, Mr. Silver understands that divorce can be one of the most traumatic experiences an individual can go through. Not only is the divorce process extremely taxing emotionally for all those involved, but it can be financially devastating. Through mediation, Mr. Silver attempts to minimize both the emotional and financial stress inherent to adversarial divorce proceedings.

Mediation is a voluntary, non-adversarial, process involving a trained, impartial third party. Through his vast knowledge and experience, Mr. Silver helps the parties understand their options and the likely financial outcomes for the parties if the divorce was to be litigated. Mr. Silver is a regularly consulted by other attorneys for his understanding of community property and separate property financial issues such as the proper division of property, spousal support and reimbursements. Mr. Silver strives to help the parties reach a settlement which is acceptable to both sides without the need for additional protracted litigation. Mr. Silver has served as Judge Pro Tem from many years and is regularly appointed by the Superior Court judges as a discovery referee.
