We pride ourselves on keeping our fees low by working hard and keeping our own overhead low without compromising service.

Family Law services provided by the Silverberg Law Firm include: divorce, collaborative divorce, prenuptial/postnuptial agreements, child custody, child/spousal support, property division, separation, domestic violence, enforcement, adoption, visitation, rights issues, relocation and modification of orders.

Divorce, prenups, custody disputes can be very stressful. Their conclusion can profoundly impact the lives of our client and his or her family. You need an advocate who gets it. As a divorced parent, Jay understands that this is not just a business.

The financial issues surrounding a divorce may be complex. Our extensive experience as business lawyers gives us a leg up in effectively representing our clients’ interests.

Issues concerning custody, parenting time, grandparent access and the like are difficult. One size does not fit all. We take our responsibilities to our clients and their families seriously. We always strive to reach the best possible solutions.

We will advise you on mediation, consensual settlements, and collaborative divorce. When appropriate, we can and will litigate aggressively to protect our client’s interests.

We do our best to accomplish our clients’ goals. We strive to keep stress and legal costs low. We provide cost-effective and practical pathways to the best possible conclusion.
