Practice Areas


Business Law

Mr. Silverman handled the sale of my technology company to my partners. I was empowered during the transactions by a wonderful confidence knowing he and his firm 'had my back'. The sale went through smoothly and included a variety of protections that I would have otherwise missed. I appreciated the follow-through and intelligence of his communications during the whole process.
