Skilled Carlsbad Lawyers Handle High-Conflict Family Court Matters

Committed to resolving challenging San Diego County cases

In 1993, attorneys Alan R. Silverman and Claudia Bravo Silverman together established Silverman & Silverman, Attorneys at Law, and began addressing Family Court matters in the Superior Court of California. Before obtaining his license to practice law, Mr. Silverman practiced variously as a Marriage, Family Court and Child Counselor, was employed as a clinical psychologist in Carlsbad, and served as Executive Director of Casa De Amparo, a child-abuse residential treatment facility in Oceanside funded by the San Diego County Department of Social Services. During that time, he wrote and administered a child-abuse treatment grant to benefit military families at Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base in Oceanside, CA.

Our philosophy is to obtain desirable results for clients and to focus on resolution without involving hostile confrontations or stressful scenes. We address Family Court disputes with an understanding of mental-health issues and psychopathology to reduce conflict and produce better results. If you reside in San Diego County or have a matter for or before the Superior Court of San Diego County, let us help you accomplish your Family Court-law goals in the least confrontational manner possible, whether alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) or other method to guide you and your [ex-]spouse/partner toward a just settlement. Alan R. Silverman is available as a private mediator or a private judge or to represent one party in mediation. Should you retain our firm to represent and advocate for you in the traditional method to seek a resolution for your Family Court issues, and an equitable agreement cannot be reached between you and your spouse, then Alan R. Silverman, our skilled litigator, can take your case to trial.

  • Family Law mediator-Alan R. Silverman is available as a neutral mediator to guide you and your spouse/partner toward equitable settlement terms through mediation, where he supports both of you in reaching a conclusion and represents neither one of you.

Each may participate in mediation with or without his or her own attorney.
