Bruce S. Silverman — Certified Family Law Attorney

I am Bruce S. Silverman, a California divorce attorney and certified family law specialist by the California State Bar Board of Legal Specialization. I have more than 45 years of experience handling high-asset and high-income divorces. I have built a wide network of therapists, accountants, financial planners and other experts who help clients and their families cope and prepare for their futures, as well as prepare accurate assessments and reports that can be used to determine:


  •     Child custody and visitation matters
  •     Child support payments
  •     Spousal maintenance
  •     Property and asset division

Committed To Achieving Cooperative Resolutions Using Collaborative Methods

In many divorce actions, the characterization of what property is marital or nonmarital and how other assets such as stock options, extensive real estate holdings, and the valuation of closely held businesses are contentious issues. I offer a safe and confidential environment that encourages people to find collaborative, creative solutions for property division and other issues, which can lead to an equitable divorce settlement. I practice a variety of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods that can help:


  •     Preserve relationships amongst extended family members
  •     Save on attorneys' fees
  •     Avoid the risk and cost that comes with litigation and a judge deciding the fate of your family
  •     Sidestep having to sell your closely held business for the purpose of property division, thus preserving a source of profit for your family, avoiding costly taxes as a result of dissolving the business and reducing the potential of lost income
  •     Minimize tax consequences
  •     Allow for amicable future estate planning
  •     Evade your sensitive family law issues from being exposed to the public through court documents or proceedings


Cooperative resolution methods can also allow experts' opinions to be used for the purposes of negotiation and collaboration that may not always be admissible in court. These valuable opinions can help problem-solve and present creative solutions that will help reach short-term and long-term outcomes that satisfy all involved parties.
