Please understand that as a user of this website, you agree to be bound by the following “Terms of Use”.  If you do not agree, please do not use the website.  

Website Is Not Legal Advice

Information contained on the website is not legal advice, nor shall it be regarded as legal advice by any user.  Prior results or visual depictions do not promise future outcomes.  You should not act on any information contained within the website without first communicating with an attorney and obtaining legal advice specific to your circumstances.  Please note that no photograph on the site depicts a client, a case or an actual legal event.  

The Law Office is pleased to assist you if you reach out either through establishing an attorney-client relationship or through providing you with a referral to another attorney.  Simply contacting the Law Office through any means – electronic or otherwise - does not create an attorney-client relationship, however.  

To Establish an Attorney-Client Relationship with the Silverberg Law Office

The Law Office welcomes your call, text or email if you would like to discuss your particular circumstances and legal needs.  Each potential client receives a Retainer Agreement to review and sign to establish an attorney - client relationship and begin representation.  

 

Ethical Requirements

Ms. Silverberg always aims to comply fully with all requirements under professional ethical rules governing websites.  Under the New York State Rules of Professional Conduct, please note that some content on this website qualifies as attorney advertising.   Please also note that prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.  Results are based on each client’s unique circumstances and the application of law to those facts.  If you are considering hiring an attorney, Ms. Silverberg recommends that you review an attorney’s qualifications and background and do not rely exclusively on written information to make your decision. 

 

Ms. Silverberg does not seek legal employment or intend to represent anyone in a jurisdiction other than New York State.
