  • Claudia’s knowledge of the issues was extraordinary. She was able to hone in on the most pertinent areas and created and presented a coherent and persuasive case. In addition, her knowledge of the family law issues was further dynamically illuminated during oral arguments. Needless to say, we ended the appeal with astounding results, and she received well deserved accolades from all the affiliated attorneys. My working relationship with Claudia was respectful and stimulating. She is one smart attorney! I would not hesitate to recommend Claudia for any appellate matter.
  • Claudia represented me as I sought to appeal a judgment in a family law matter. My case was complex, with a voluminous record. Claudia sorted through and researched all the issues to compose a compelling reason to convince the appeals court that the judgment should be reversed, something I understand in family law appeals to be “a long shot.
  • Claudia is an outstanding lawyer I found myself in a very difficult, stressful situation and I needed a lawyer immediately. Claudia was recommended to me by a friend who knew of her work. My case was pretty complicated, International law and Hague Convention included. Claudia took my case, acted super-fast and fought for me and my kids tirelessly. I would absolutely recommend Claudia to anybody looking for high quality legal representation. Thank you Claudia, Christine and the team who worked on my case!
  • Karen is absolutely wonderful! I hired Karen after my ex-husband decided to randomly move to CA, go MIA, and not follow through with our divorce decree from SC. After 2 years of dealing with the courts in SC it became clear moving my case to CA was my only option. I contacted many lawyers (at least 20) and it was apparent Karen was the only one I would trust to handle my case. I cannot even come close to explaining the complexly of trying to enforce a divorce decree when...
  • Claudia Ribet is the consummate professional. She stuck by my daughter through thick and thin in a lengthy divorce and custody battle. Beneath her no nonsense, let’s get down to business exterior, lies a caring and intelligent woman whose clients mean the world to her. She prepared methodically and diligently for my daughter’s case, carefully considering all the options before deciding on her legal approach. She is truly a “Super Lawyer.” I would recommend her without reservaiton.
  • Claudia Ribet has been by my side for over five years, never swerving from her belief in me and my case. While my days in court are still not over, I know I would never have gotten this far in my custody struggles without her dedicated advocacy. She always stays in contact with me, guiding me through thick and thin. If you are looking for an intelligent and caring attorney with extensive litigation experience, look no further.
  • I highly recommend Ms. Silver. She communicated with me frequently, was knowledgeable and detailed oriented, and has a heart. She also didn’t try to overbill me, which other attorneys do. She was really careful of her time and costs. I liked that. She is classy and is someone I want on my side.
  • I was very happy with this lawyer. Karen is experienced and knows what she is doing. I appreciated that she kept me involved and informed every step of the way. I got great results.
  • I want to give a review of this lawyer for those out there looking for a lawyer. This lawyer was helpful, smart and responsive to all of my many questions and concerns. I felt supported throughout the difficult custody process. I am happy with the results I got.
  • I was very pleased with my representation. Karen gave good advice and was always there for me. She didn’t hand me off to associates or other lawyers like happens at other firms. She didn’t try to increase costs. She is smart and practical and has a good way of dealing with people. I highly recommend her.
  • Divorce sucks. Even under the best of circumstances. And one of the most important decisions you’ll make is the attorney you chose. This person will dictate the entire tone and outcome of the divorce. I wanted an attorney that would not waist my time and money and would work to solve problems fairly. I was very happy with Karen Silver.
  • I am so grateful for Karen. She is smart, practical and kind. She defended me and protected my and my children’s interests every step of the way. I loved that she was responsive to me. My prior attorney was not but Karen always returned calls and emails in a reasonable amount of time. I highly recommend her.
  • Karen Silver helped me go through the most difficult divorce. I was confused at all the money missing from my account and Karen quickly discovered hidden assets I had no idea we even had! I went from being a victim to getting my fair share of assets. I will forever be grateful to her and would recommend her to ANYONE (and have).
  • Karen helped me through the most difficult time in my life. She was very responsive and always made herself available when I needed her (to help answer questions, get guidance on how to proceed, and learn what the next steps were). I trusted her knowledge and her guidance. I would recommend Karen, to help anyone going through a divorce.
  • I highly recommend this attorney. She was very responsive to me every step of the way. Her fees were reasonable and she made sure to watch my bottom line the entire time. She is smart, caring and advocated for me in a way that I felt my voice was heard. Anonymous
