    Feb 24 2021 I hired Joel Silberman to represent a Family member who is in prison on a very serious charge with many years to serve. I’m happy with his work. He has informed me in a timely manor on any information that may help the case. My family member calls Joel from prison and Joel answers any questions and concerns from my loved one. I worry less knowing he stands behind my loved one. He has worked hard and I know he will continue to work hard in order for us to have a positive outcome.

    Jan 26 2021 Joel is an excellent attorney. He is reliable, diligent, efficient and ethical. He handles his cases with the utmost professionalism and cares about his clients every step of the way. He was always available to answer any questions we had and made sure to quickly answer emails, texts and phone calls even if it were late in the evening after returning from court. Joel kept us apprised of all the details happening throughout our case and was helpful in guiding us through the various proceedings and processes which made us feel well supported and comfortable given the fact that we had never been involved in this type of lawsuit. It should be noted that Joel has the respect of everyone, including Judges and his colleagues, which was clearly evident in the court room. I would highly recommend Joel as a criminal defense attorney.

After assessing, he would define a path that is in your best interest. Also, he and his team are prompt in getting your situation resolved ASAP. Also, very economical and understands your financial situation and does the best to give you a break on payments. Always shows up in person for you at the court.

  • Antoine Adam

    Dec 19 2020 Mr. Joel Silberman is very professional, analytical and extremely helpful attorney. During my first encounter with him, he was very honest and sought to get a good understanding of the case. He is not necessarily complaisant but he will fight for you to the best of his abilities: * His help is custom-tailored to the case and person he is trying to help. In my case I provided him with as much relevant informant as I could, and he was able to deliver. * He has an excellent knowledge of the law and will research articles and jurisprudence pertinent to your case. He is interested in you as a client but he expects diligent and timely payments for his efforts. * He answers text messages and if he is in Court he will get back to you afterwards. That's all for me, and I have already hired him in two separate cases, with excellent outcomes. Do your research and see for yourself.

  • Sabrina Roman

    Dec 19 2020 Mr. Silberman did an excellent job with my case. He was always professional and timely in his responses (even on weekends)! He always showed up to court on time and ready. He was also very confident and reassuring that things would work out. I knew he had my back! Ultimately, my case was dismissed. That was one of the best days of my life!! I’m always so grateful of the work he put into my case. Thank you again Joel! I highly recommend.
  • Belinda Samuels

    Dec 19 2020 Joel was referred to me by a close friend. I was falsely accused of a nasty crime and am pregnant, out of work and was stressed and afraid. This was the first time in my life that I needed legal representation and I was anxious and nervous. Having to speak with a criminal attorney was an overwhelming and frightening thought. Joel changed that for me. He was kind, patient, reassuring and professional. He listened and asked thoughtful and thorough questions to ensure he had all facts straight. He sheltered my family from the police and took on all correspondence and quietly handled everything for us. He saved my sanity and took an enormous weight off of me. He responded to text messages and hysterical phone calls with ease and even referred me to another great lawyer to handle another part of this case that was outside his expertise. I can’t say enough great things about Joel, but I’ll repeat that my family and I are so grateful for his diligence, professionalism, hard work and follow through in ensuring we were legally represented and supported through a very difficult time.
  • Nilsa Fragoso

I highly recommend him and would not hesitate to hire him again. says:
