ELLIOT SILVER - SILVER LAW FIRM REVIEWS
Elliot talked with me and my mother over the phone, giving me the best advice and straight forward answers. I talked with countless lawyers previous to finding elliot, none of them I was willing to trust. I was going in to get a restraining order against someone. This was a very stressful time for me, filled with uncertainty of what would happen in the court room. He was kind and empathetic to my situation and above and beyond as far as knowledge. He told me that my case was strong and probably didn’t need a lawyer, but that he would represent me if in case I decided I wanted one. That’s what really made him stand out to me, he took the time, he looked at my situation, and gave me his real, honest advice. He wasn’t just there to make a quick buck. He really cared and treated me as if I were his family. I would refer anyone who needs a lawyer over to elliot!
Elliot and the Silver Law Firm staff are simply amazing and go above and beyond. I really appreciated Elliot's tireless efforts and excellent communication in helping me understand and get through a difficult situation. He is straightforward, honest, and I am so thankful I hired him as my lawyer. Well worth the cost and I actually consider it to be a bargain based on his fantastic results.
Mr. Silver really knows his stuff, and he is easy to talk to. The legal advice he provided to me was right on point, and today is a better day because of it. I highly recommend the Silver Law Firm.

JO-ANNA NIEVES - THE NIEVES LAW FIRM, APC REVIEWS
Jo-Anna Nieves took over my case and I immediately felt she was going to get favorable results. Jo-Anna worked hard to get updates on my previous hearings. Ms.Nieves clearly expressed to me the reality of my case. After serious negotiation in courtroom she was able to show the vindictiveness of the other client which in turn helped my case get dropped. I would highly recommend her. Thank you Ms. Jo-Anna Nieves!
Jo-Anna Nieves was invaluable in helping me through a more difficult time while fighting a legal issue.She also made me feel, she really had my best interest at heart.
Jo-Anna and her team provided excellent support when I didn't think I had any options. Her team didn't stop fighting for me and that I truly appreciated. I had lost complete hope and the relief that her team was able to get was more than I could have asked for. Their team is responsive, timely and goes over the top for the clients. I highly recommend their firm.

NABIEL C. AHMED - LAW OFFICE OF NABIEL C. AHMED REVIEWS
I was worried I was going to prison for sure when I found out I had a dui with great bodily injury warrant for my arrest. I decided to go with mr.ahmed and was not disappointed. He is quick to respond and answer any questions I have to his full ability. He ended up getting the violent felony enhancement dismissed as a part of my plea deal and I ended up only serving a short jail term with some probation instead of the initial minimum sentence of 16 months in prison. Guy knows his stuff. God bless.
Nabiel was a huge help to me and my family when we had a family member get into trouble. Nabiel was able to negotiate a great plea and avoid serious charges. This was especially important since we were looking at significant charges despite this being a first offense. I strongly encourage anyone who needs criminal defense to contact Nabiel Ahmed.
Nabiel Ahmed is an excellent attorney. He is very caring, ethical and professional at all times. He answered all my questions and concerns. At the end, He got me the BEST outcomes of the case.
