How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I found that family law required more skill than other branches of law.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

I believe an attorney should educate his clients so that that they understand enough to participate meaningfully in processing their cases.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

As long as they are my client's, I have no problem with this.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

Unfortunately, I do not have time for this worthy enterprise.

Bruce S. Silverman

I have spent more than 30 years helping to resolve the issues that arise when a marriage ends. I represent my clients in all aspects of family law, including divorce, child custody, and spousal and child support matters.

I have almost 40 years of practice.

My strength is creative solutions, being able to deal with difficult people, and tremendous experience in handling all aspects of a divorce case from beginning to end.

I am firm, aggressive and creative, but fair and compassionate.

Personal interests:

I enjoy volunteer work, music and golf.
