Peaceful~Private~Divorce with Dignity

Peaceful, private, respectful divorce.   Elaine T. Silver, Collaborative divorce lawyer and mediator, steers her clients on a clear path through the turmoil of divorce.

Here’s what her clients say:

“You did much more than advocate on my behalf, you helped me grow.  I am so thankful to you and for the luck that brought me to you.” 

“Not only a fantastic divorce lawyer but also a great person.  She is an excellent advisor and smart enough to realize that she works for the client, not the other way around.  She was spot on with the right approach.  If I could give her more than five stars I would.  That is the difference that she made in my life.”

“Elaine did an exceptional job representing me.  She demonstrated wisdom, intelligence and grace during this entire ordeal.”

“I was so overwhelmed by the divorce and concerned for my children. At times the anger, anxiety and self-doubt seemed unbearable. Elaine was so wonderful at keeping me calm and focused. She helped me get through the process with dignity. She helped me concentrate my energies on the best outcome for my kids and me. I walked away from divorce with my head held high.  Years later, I consider Elaine my divorce attorney, my spiritual guru, and my friend.”

Silver focuses on guiding clients to act with dignity, arrive at best outcomes, and plan carefully for the future.  Each client benefits from Silver’s personal attention and expertise.  She represents individuals with complex financial lives:  high net worth business owners, professionals and their spouses.

Collaborative Divorce and mediation put the children’s needs first and provide a private path to divorce where clients stay in control. Contrary to common belief, judges ultimately decide less than 5% of all divorces.  Peaceful resolution sets the stage for the future well being of the whole family—spouses, children, grandparents. 

Passionate about educating people to understand their options for divorce, Ms. Silver lectures on “How To Have a Peaceful Divorce.”   An audience member commented:

“I thought divorce would be a boring topic.  But it was NOT!  You are an excellent speaker with the right amount of passion, humor, and knowledge to make it interesting, informative and thought provoking.”
