Their unique approach lets the attorneys, Alan R. Silverman and Claudia Bravo Silverman, successfully accomplish your objectives as they help you cope with the many challenges inherent in the family law legal process.
Psychology and family counseling experience
Before starting law school, Alan Silverman was a marriage, child and family therapist and a clinical psychologist. His credentials include a doctorate in counseling psychology, a master's in guidance and counseling, a master's in behavioral sciences and epidemiology, and a bachelor's in psychology. During his 15-year career, Mr. Silverman performed a wide range of services to assist families and children in transition, including:
Our firm's counseling approach
We use our unique understanding of mental health issues to ease the stress of dissolving a marriage and encourage you to think rationally and calmly about the complicated issues affecting your family. We assess interpersonal family dynamics, identify the areas of strength and dysfunction in the family system and use this information to resolve or effectively litigate your case. With our eyes always firmly focused on results, Silverman & Silverman helps you take decisive, efficient steps to successfully reach your goals and to preserve your peace of mind during a difficult time.
Designated a family law specialist by the Board of Legal Specialization of the State Bar of California
Mr. Silverman was and continues to be certified as a family law specialist by the Board of Legal Specialization of the State Bar of California. Certification requires attorneys to participate in a demanding application process testing their skills and knowledge about family law, assessing their experience in family law procedures and evaluating referrals from other attorneys and judges familiar with the lawyers' work product, ethics and professionalism.
Focus on alternative dispute resolution techniques
Alan Silverman and Claudia Silverman have extensive training in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) techniques. ADR typically minimizes expenses and reduces the time required to complete a marital dissolution or to resolve issues that the parties may have, not limited to marital dissolution. Additionally, ADR can be less stressful because it gives you more control over the process.
Silverman & Silverman provides advice about settling your divorce using mediation and collaborative divorce ADR methods. To develop a sense of cooperation and cordiality between spouses, we encourage you to consider ADR to resolve parental rights, child support and high-conflict child custody issues whenever possible. In dissolving a domestic partnership, mediation and collaborative divorce provides an effective means for resolving same-gender marriage/partnership issues.
